Red, Green and Blue Quinoa

I’m hoping that this delicious, quick, and easy dinner will pardon the sin of what’s to come on Saturday. Currently I’m baking the most unhealthy cookies in the world. Maybe not the world, but close. I can see all my healthy, fit, vegans shaking their heads at me…I’ll have hell to pay for this goodness. […]

Vegan Patacones

Damn. Venezuela does it right. As you know by now, I’m constantly on the quest for the perfect vegan sandwich. In fact, I’ll even eat very unvegan sandwiches given the right circumstances (i.e. drunk off my rocker at Elliot Street Pub where the sandwiches are the best in town–never vegan, but really darn tasty). So […]

Blackberry Peach Cobbler (for 3)

Sometimes you just need a quick, summery dessert-snack. And sometimes you have three peaches and one small package of blackberries sitting around. What else to do but make individual cobblers? Happy weekend all! Blackberry Peach Cobbler 3 peaches, peeled and sliced 1 small package of blackberries, rinsed 1 tbsp sugar 1/2 tsp lemon juice 1/2 […]

Sun Dried Tomato & Fresh Herb Buckwheat Rolls

I’ve been baking a lot lately, which isn’t a bad thing, just strange given that I haven’t done much baking over the past year or so.  When the site first started it’s practically all I did.  Speaking of which, starting that is, my veganisery was a few weeks ago, July 7!  Totally forgot about it.  […]

Mojito Eclairs/Cream Puffs

Is it possible to make too many mojitos?  Really, is it, be honest with me.  This weather is just too nice & mint is just so in season! These evenings beg for porch sitting and cool drink sipping and desserts that are light and summery. Light and summery…fresh mint…limes…rum–how about a mojito eclair?  I actually […]

Sloppy Joe’s Mojitos

It’s been the perfect weekend: 80 degrees, no humidity, bright blue skies with white fluffy clouds, and lots of porch sittin’ and mojito drinkin’. Need I say more? Sloppy Joe’s Mojitos from Gourmet Light Rum (I use Bacardi) Fresh mint Limes Soda Water Sugar Ice Put a teaspoon of sugar in a highball glass, squeeze […]

Sun Dried Tomato & Basil Almond Pesto

First of all, is there anything more wonderful than opening up a too full and extremely disorganized fridge and being greeted by a bouquet of fresh mint? It’s a beautiful sight. And one that will (hopefully!) translate into an awesome baking project this weekend. I’m feeling my kitchen groove come back. But you’ll have to […]

Hot & Smoky Baked Beans

If it seems like all I eat these days is sandwiches, pasta, and baked beans, well…you’re probably right. Although I have a host of excuses, I can really explain the bean thing. See, my mom gave me the world’s most amazing cast iron dutch oven. It’s beautiful. And black. And shiny with oil. And begging […]

Green Like Summer Sandwich

Wow, I feel like a rock star thanks to LazySmurf and the PPK boards. Seriously, that was a lot of hits over a period of two days, rock on! I decided to repeat my post-farmers market sandwich making experience again this week and I wasn’t disappointed with the results. My vegan-bike-riding-soul-mate Kyle gave it two […]

Agave Rye Whiskey Peach Pie

What says summer better than peach pie? How about alcohol-infused peach pie? Or sweet agave caramel peach pie? Or, well, because we’re being decadent now, a combination of all of the above? Just before the long weekend, Sassy Radish posted this recipe from Gourmet for Honey Bourbon Peach Pie. I knew I had to make […]
