Raw Oatmeal Raisin Balls

Raw Oatmeal Raisin Balls

Were yesterday’s gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookies still not healthy enough for you? Then perhaps these raw oatmeal raisin balls will be more your style!
Vegan Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Vegan Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A few months ago, I tried this recipe for “turtle” cookies, and they completely blew my mind. Since that day, I’ve made a dozen variations on that recipe, adjusting ingredients and playing with flavor combinations. This is my oatmeal raisin riff on that recipe.
Daifuku Mochi

Daifuku Mochi

Oh, what the heck? Since I reposted my recipe for sesame seed balls last week, I might as well bring back this old post for regular, non-deep-fried mochi. As long as you can track down a few special ingredients (and don’t mind making a mess), making daifuku is surprisingly easy!
Sesame Seed Balls (Jin Deui)

Sesame Seed Balls (Jin Deui)

It’s time for a trip down memory lane! I posted this recipe in the very early days of my blog, back when I was deep-frying foods like a maniac, but never thought to re-post it after my blog was wiped clean in 2010. And that’s silly, because sesame seed balls were always my favorite thing...
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.
Vegan Peanut Brittle

Vegan Peanut Brittle

I am truly a fool for giving out a recipe like this for free, when I should be raking in royalties from the American Dental Association instead. Consider this fair warning: don’t even think about making peanut brittle if you’ve personally funded the college educations of two of your orthodontist’s kids, okay?
Perfect Apple Pie

Perfect Apple Pie

Man, Thanksgiving is the worst! Seriously, someone’s gotta say it. I’ve been putting off posting this recipe for apple pie for weeks because I could not for the life of me figure out how I was going to squeeze into one blog post exactly how much a celebration of imperialism and genocide over a feast...
Double-Layer Chocolate Cake with Coffee Buttercream

Double-Layer Chocolate Cake with Coffee Buttercream

It’s no secret that I love baking cookies. They’re quick to throw together, and I always store leftovers in the freezer for future snacking. But if I have plenty of time and a willing audience, you better bet I’m making a cake! There’s something about a slice of cake that just feels complete. This chocolate...
Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Scented with coconut, vanilla, and butter, these thick and chewy coconut oatmeal cookies are seriously swoon-worthy. If you like macaroons, these cookies are for you.
Vegan Peanut Butter Silk Pie

Vegan Peanut Butter Silk Pie

This vegan peanut butter silk pie is absolutely one of the most absurd foods I have ever made — and that’s saying something, since embarking on absurd food projects is kind of a thing of mine. I know you can make a perfectly tasty peanut butter pie with tofu as the main ingredient, but man,...
Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

On my birthday a few years ago, before I lived in New Haven, my mother brought me to Edge of the Woods Market to peruse their bakeshop’s vegan offerings. Among them were giant tahini chocolate chip cookies. The sesame flavor wasn’t bold, but made for a rich, well-rounded cookie, and I left determined to make...
Blueberry Pie with Cornmeal Crust

Blueberry Pie with Cornmeal Crust

Blueberry season has just come to a close in Connecticut, and you better believe I took full advantage of the picking season. I was a little self-conscious about how many berries I picked, but honestly, once I’d thrown 6 cups into this blueberry pie with a cornmeal crust, I realized I could’ve gotten more. Next...
