Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread

I’m pretty sure there’s no produce grocery stores love throwing out more than bananas. And as I have spent a significant fraction of my life inside grocery store dumpsters, I can say without an ounce of hyperbole that I have made fourteen million loaves of banana bread in my life. (Okay, fine: maybe one ounce!)...
Blueberry Cream Oatmeal

Blueberry Cream Oatmeal

Attentive readers will note that I do in fact only ever eat one of two things for breakfast: oatmeal or pancakes. Cereal’s expensive, toast is boring, vegan yogurt is constantly being discontinued, waffles are inferior to pancakes, and a worthy bagel is as rare in Connecticut as a respectful mosh at a Hatebreed show.
Roasted Pear and Fig Oatmeal

Roasted Pear and Fig Oatmeal

Two years ago, the only thing I craved for breakfast on the weekend was pancakes. For months and months, I ate pancakes — drizzled with maple syrup, alongside a mug of hot coffee — every single Saturday morning before heading out to the pottery studio. If my partner was doing the cooking, I would sometimes...
Banana Nut Porridge with Oatmeal, Quinoa, and Teff

Banana Nut Porridge with Oatmeal, Quinoa, and Teff

Overnight oats are my default breakfast in the summer, but once the temperatures begin to drop, I like to spend chilly mornings cozied up with a hot bowl of oatmeal. This banana nut porridge with rolled oats, quinoa, and teff is currently my favorite weekend breakfast.
Cranberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Cranberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Beneath their crunchy exteriors, these cranberry scones are soft and buttery, complemented by a tart, sweet lemon drizzle.
Sun-Dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche

Sun-Dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche

December is one of my favorite months. Whatever the reason, I love that everyone everywhere just seems to be in better spirits than usual this time of year. I also love logging long hours in the kitchen whipping up cookies and candy to share with people that matter to me. I’ll be posting some of...
Whole Grain and Nut Pancakes

Whole Grain and Nut Pancakes

As I’ve mentioned before, I love to start my weekend off with pancakes. I do like to mix it up, though, and lately I’ve been all about these whole grain and nut pancakes. These pancakes just happen to be oil-free and don’t use any white flour at all; packed with oats, pecans, and whole wheat...
Vegan Funny Face Pancake

Vegan Funny Face Pancake

Did y’all hear about IHOP’s Horton Hears a Who-themed pancakes a few years ago? If you missed it, google “Who-Cakes” and prepare to have your mind blown (as well as witness some upper-tier food blogging). Apparently, this limited-time monstrosity consisted of a pile of pancakes bathed in pink and blue food coloring, sprinkled with candy,...
Vegan Maple Bars

Vegan Maple Bars

My grandpa? He loves doughnuts. He loves cookies, too — I think it’s genetic — but in the murky shadows of my childhood memory, I will always think of him stopping at a Casey’s General Store to refill his huge travel mug with coffee. Lots of people have certain smells that remind them of their...
Hudson Valley Granola

Hudson Valley Granola

The story of this granola goes back many moons to when I lived in the tiny village of Tivoli, New York. By the time I moved to Friendship Street, I’d long known Tivoli’s Mikee as the talented baker who dropped off several loaves of inexplicably wonderful fresh bread at my co-op every Sunday morning.  But...
Fluffy Vegan Pancakes

Fluffy Vegan Pancakes

I like to savor my weekends. I try to fill them beginning-to-end with all the things I love to do when I have two whole days to myself. I am loathe to waste a single minute in bed that I could’ve spent going for a run or a long bike ride, practicing guitar, or reading...
Vegan Overnight Breakfast Casserole

Like eating an extravagant breakfast with your guests, but hate dragging your groggy body out of bed at the crack of dawn to make it? This overnight breakfast casserole is for you. It’s particularly awesome when you have friends or family visiting, because you whip it together the evening before and all you have to...
