Homemade Gingerbread Spice Latte

It’s a homemade and healthy gingerbread latte! Where’s my Coffee? My roommate, Emily, is one of those people who absolutely cannot function until she’s had her morning cup of coffee. So our kitchen is fully equipped with a Keurig machine and stacks of flavored coffee pods. Yesterday, after my run, I decided to play around […]

Healthy Chocolate Pecan Pie

Chocolate pecan pie. Of course chocolate. Would you expect anything less from a chocolate-covered blog? You all saw my ugly pecan pie. Luckily, the second try turned out much prettier–and much more delicious. This secretly healthy pecan pie is the perfect balance of gooey, chewy, rich, and sweet. If you can’t stop eating the raw batter, you know […]

My Vegan Thanksgiving Feast

Who’s still full from Thanksgiving? Well, I’m pretty sure this guy is: He was so incredibly naughty on Thursday night. My parents hosted a party at their house, with separate kid and adult tables to fit everyone. After dinner, one of the kids left his plate and didn’t push his chair completely in. We discovered Batman […]

Black Friday Chocolate Oatmeal

Happy Black Friday! I’m not venturing anywhere near a mall today. I did pass by a shopping center on my run this morning, and the parking lot was already swarming with cars! I’ll probably spend the rest of today inside, cleaning… and maybe starting to transfer Christmas decorations to my new house. My mom said […]

Healthy Thanksgiving Ideas

Ooh look, it’s a post that’s not about desserts! A lot of y’all have been asking if I’ll ever do a non-dessert post again. The answer is yes, I do actually have plans for some savory recipes—hopefully soon. Many readers have also asked what savory dishes I’m planning to make for Thanksgiving. I still haven’t […]

Buttery Pecan Pie Biscuits

I know you just saw a biscuit post on Thursday. But I wanted to post this pecan-pie version before Thanksgiving, as these biscuits would be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner! And they’d be even more perfect for “Thanksgiving leftovers” sandwiches the next day.   Buttery Pecan Pie Biscuits (makes 8-12) 1 and 3/4c spelt flour (or white, […]

No-Bake Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

EDIT: I finally have a Pumpkin Pinterest Board! What does chocolate + pumpkin equal? Anyone? Anyone? One incredibly-delicious dessert, that’s what. And it’s gluten-free! What’s on your Thanksgiving menu? I might make apple pie, or my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars. Or I might just make both. Then I won’t feel bad if all the addictive oatmeal-raisin bars happen […]

Special Diet Parties

Fact: I like parties.   People often ask how I deal with being the only vegan at a party: What do I eat? Do I make special arrangements ahead of time? And how do I react when someone brings up the topic? I know many of you also eat “differently” than your friends and family—whether it […]

Eight ways to use up your Canned Pumpkin

I promise. I promise that, after Thanksgiving, I will put the pumpkin away for the rest of the year (at least as far as blog recipes are concerned). Until that time, here’s a look back at all of the pumpkin-y goodness with which I’ve bombarded you these last two months: Pumpkin Cereal Come June and […]

Chocolate Almond Joy Biscuits

If a biscuit and a scone had babies: Until yesterday, I’d never made biscuits. (Unless you call popping open a can of Pillsbury Grands “making biscuits.”) I was surprised by how quickly this recipe–which I created yesterday morning–came together. For some reason, I’d always been under the impression that biscuit-making was difficult. But that’s not the case […]

Sugar-Free Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip

This is what happens when two roommates are bored on a Monday night: Brownie batter happens. Just to be clear: Lentil stew also happened Monday night. We didn’t only eat brownie batter for dinner. Although that might have been fun… By popular demand, what follows is a sugar-free version of my Dark Chocolate Brownie Dip. Emily and […]

Artisana Coconut Butter Giveaway

You make me smile every day. Just knowing someone actually reads what I write… it means so much to me. I wish I could give you all a giant hug, but I haven’t figured out a way to do that (so you can breathe a collective sigh of relief!). Instead, I’m sending three of my favorite Artisana […]

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Larabars

These are my new favorite homemade Larabars: Only, they’re not really Larabars at all. I stumbled upon the recipe while making Hot Fudge Brownie Larabars. The hot-fudge Larabars used to be my favorite. But their place has now been usurped… by a non-chocolate bar?! Yes, these oatmeal cookie bars are so good I like them […]

Triple-Layer Chocolate Mousse Fudge Cake

Vegan Dessert of the Year I was so extremely honored when Vegan.com chose me to provide the dessert component of their “Vegan Recipes of the Year” feature. This was an intimidating task; not only was I in the company of three incredibly accomplished individuals (two popular cookbook authors and an award-winning chef), I also wanted […]

Chocolate Pumpkin-Pie Brownies

Oh dear. Emily’s and my new home is quickly becoming the “hang out after work” place for a lot of our friends. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they know we will always have food? In any case, this new trend works out great; it means more taste testers! Today, in […]
