Above, a full plate of Oatmeal Cookie Crepe Cakes Hmmm, but this looks too neat and tidy… That’s better. Above, with little Soyatoo dots and homemade Smashberry Jam. For the jam: It’s so easy! Just boil your berries… and then SMASH them!! That’s it! After breakfast, it was time for presents! (Well-fed parents = Much happier […]
(I’m not really at my computer on Christmas morning. I scheduled this post!) Hope everyone who celebrates is having a very merry Christmas. Here in north Texas, we have our first white Christmas since 1926! Two days ago it was 78 degrees, then the next day it was 20 and snowing. Normally, I’d rather have […]
Finding enough money to buy quality gifts for everyone on your Christmas list is not always easy. (Unless, of course, you’re Bill Gates. But I’m assuming he doesn’t read my blog ;).) And the recession doesn’t help matters. Luckily, you don’t have to break the bank in order to show your friends and family how […]
Sounds much yummier than The Princess and the Pea, right? And certainly much yummier than The Princess and the Knee Happy Birthday, little sister! With the pink hue and the princess decoration, it almost looks like a carbon copy of the cake I made for her last year My sister is a girl who knows […]
But first, a recipe update: I added 1/8 tsp of vanilla to the Raw Cashew-Vanilla Bars, which took the flavor to a new level. Plus, I wanted to show off the cute owl candle. When I was at Bryn Mawr (their mascot is the owl), we kinda went owl-overboard and bought everything owl-y we could find :). Chocolate-Covered Meal […]
The Melted Banana Trick With Brownie Batter Oatmeal. The Plump-Up-Raisin Trick Question of the Day: Do you have any “tricks of the trade”? I know someone who received $50 for sharing the idea “to cut up pizza with scissors” to Good Housekeeping!
Here it is: A Candle Warmer! Looks rather boring, yeah? But it’s not! It’s a really cool tool, good for so much more than warming candles. You can use it to melt or warm coconut butter, vegan butter (yay—no splattering/popping, which is what happens if you try melting vegan butter in the microwave), peanut butter, […]
The first time I ever heard that using a microwave was “bad for you” was a few years ago, in a little health food shop. I was explaining to the store clerk how I make a certain recipe, and when I got to the part about using the microwave, she turned white as a ghost […]
It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah! It’s Raining Men! Amen! Seeing as I’ve already done the naked thing, why not take it all the way and make them raw too? Raw Gingerbread People Word of warning: This dough is so good that you might just want to eat it all out of the food processor/Magic Bullet and save […]
(Somewhere, Joey Tribbiani just died.) Above, gingerbread sandwiches, with Cheesecake Mousse
A lot of people have been emailing lately, asking if I can list recipe measurements in cup amounts instead of grams. . Why do I prefer grams to cups? Measuring in grams gives a much more precise amount. For example, a cup of dates is a very vague measurement: there’s a big difference between a loosely-packed […]
I used the Peanut Butter Cup Baby recipe and subbed tahini for the peanut butter. They were yummy… but the regular peanut butter ones are better. Plus, they kind of look like meatballs 😕
If a banana hammock kingdom exists (scary thought…), blog reader Priscilla should be queen! Are you ready for the Holy Grail of Banana Hammocks? I can assure you that you’re not. Here it is anyway. Does she define the word “genius” or what? Priscilla stuffed her banana hammock with marshmallows (vegans can use Ricemallow Cream, Smuckers, […]
S’mores Babies Use the formula for the Cookie Dough Babies. Add a little Ricemellow Creme or Smuckers Marshmallow Sauce, then blend. Cover your morsels in crushed graham crackers, flax seeds, or wheat germ (or just mix one of these things into the batter).
(For those who haven’t read Harry Potter, a “muggle” is a person who lacks magical ability.) Red Pepper Magic Soup (Makes 1 generous serving) 200 grams raw, sliced mushrooms 200 grams red pepper slices Oil, water, or broth for sautéing Milk of choice (I like almond milk) Garlic (I use 1 and 1/2 tablespoons) Salt […]
