Vegan Lemon Coconut Baked Doughnuts

Vegan Coconut Lemon Baked Doughnuts

For some, gifting a kitchen item for a birthday or Christmas is a cardinal sin. We’ve all heard stories about the hapless husband who comes home with beautifully wrapped box containing … cue ominous music … a blender. And the poor clueless fella is booted back out that door faster than you can say “margarita.”…

Curried Red Lentil & Quinoa Bowls with Cilantro-Mint Chutney Recipe

Curried Red Lentil & Quinoa Bowls with Cilantro-Mint Chutney

I think red lentils might just be the least appetizing food you can cook. Well, visually, at least. When you cook split lentils, they fall apart—kind of like split peas in split pea soup. I spent a lot of time trying to think of ways to make curried red lentils look attractive, but sometimes you…

Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes

Gluten-Free Banana Silver Dollar Pancakes (and they’re vegan too!)

Unwritten fact: pancakes make the best memories. Ever. Every family has their set of pancake preferences and pancake traditions. Just hearing the word “pancake” conjures up visions of weekend mornings spent with family and friends and the comforting, familiar smell of something delicious wafting through the house. Gluten-free pancakes are a major thing for me….

Mint Chocolate Chip Dessert Bars Recipe

Mint Chocolate Chip Dessert Bars

Mint Chocolate Chip smoothies are one of my favorite breakfasts because they’re like starting the day off with a milkshake. I originally got the recipe from the Going Raw cookbook, but now I wing it when I make them–a little bit of mint, some banana, almond milk, a small handful of cacao nibs and maybe…

Thai Peanut Empowered Noodle Bowl Recipe

Thai Peanut Empowered Noodle Bowl from Oh She Glows

Sometimes I get so excited about something, I can’t even verbalize it. I just want to jump up and down and yell AHHHHH and then people stare and it’s awkward. That’s how excited I am about The Oh She Glows Cookbook. I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for it to come out for months and now it’s…

Kung Pao Veggies Recipe

Kung Pao Veggies

You can go to almost any Chinese restaurant and order Kung Pao Chicken, but I have never seen a vegetarian version on a restaurant menu. This means that if you stop eating meat, you can never eat Kung Pao again. Okay, no, not really. You just have to make your own meatless version. That’s easy…

Grapefruit Rosemary Kombucha

KOMBUCHAAAAAA!! Bless you. No seriously, kombucha! Have you heard of it? Have you tried it? Do you love it? Would you make it at home? Puuuuuhlease! Doesn’t that require beakers, test tubes and Bunsen burners? Sounds complicated! But it’s not, I promise! Kombucha is a probiotic-rich drink, naturally fermented with sugar, black tea, and a…

Vegan Black Bean Enchiladas with Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream

Black Bean Enchiladas With Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream

I have a thing for Mexican-inspired food. Sure, most people like it, but my family and I love it almost too much for words. I am pretty sure we would all be perfectly happy with some version of Mexican food every day of the week–it’s an obsession of epic proportions over here. Tacos, chilaquiles, or…

Vegan Aussie Bites

Vegan Aussie Bites

Have you heard of Aussie Bites? They’re sort of a cross between a mini muffin and a cookie. With a serious dose of granola bar thrown into the mix. They’re a bit sweet, a tad salty, a little crunchy, and oh-so very delicious. They boast a nice, healthy dose of Omega-3s and fiber, and they…

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Gumbo Recipe

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Gumbo

Yes, I know, this gumbo is inauthentic. There’s no seafood, there’s no sausage, and there’s not even any chicken. But that’s the point of these Make It Meatless posts! How do you take something made with meat and make it vegetarian? Well, here’s one lesson I’ve learned over the years: Don’t be afraid to be…

African Peanut Soup Recipe

African Peanut Soup

You know how sometimes you have really crisp, distinct memories of nothing in particular? I barely remember what I ate for lunch yesterday, but for some reason, I have a very clear memory of making peanut soup in our old apartment back in Wisconsin. I was frozen to the bone after getting home from work…

Vegan Frango Mints Recipe

Recipe | Faux-rango Mints (Homemade Vegan Frango Mints!)

I am originally from Chicago and Frango mints were always a big deal around the holidays. Marshall Field’s sold boxes in various sizes, so they always made a good Christmas gift–small boxes for co-workers, big boxes as hostess gifts. I loved those minty little chocolate squares, although, like so many other things, they don’t taste…

Recipe | Roasted Broccoli with Meyer Lemon and Garlic

Sometimes I have an idea so brilliant that I need to stop whatever it is I’m doing and start working on that idea right away. This week, I had one of those ideas—I would Photoshop my cats into the Kardashian Christmas card. YES. And I did it, but it didn’t quite work out as I…
