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...
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...
Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate cream pie needs no introduction, right? Here we have a flaky, buttery crust filled with dark chocolate custard, piled high with creamy whipped topping, and sprinkled with chocolate curls. Are you with me now?
Chocolate Curls

Chocolate Curls

Chocolate curls are surprisingly easy to make, and will positively make your pies and cakes and kitchen counter look six hundred times fancier.
Vegan Icebox Cake

Vegan Icebox Cake

Some recipes you try because they sound fantastic, and some you try because someone you love loves them. Such was the case with this icebox cake, which I had never even heard of, much less tasted, before I met B. It is simple, and it is comfort food, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t completely...
Vegan Revel Bars

Vegan Revel Bars

This next recipe is a favorite passed down from my mother’s mother. They’ve always been referred to in my family as “Revel Bars,” though a few years ago I found eerily similar recipe in Joy of Cooking called “Chocolate Oat Bars.” In any case, a quick google shows that this name (and basic recipe) is...
Vegan Sweet Noodle Kugel

Vegan Sweet Noodle Kugel

Do you know what sweet noodle kugel is? As my Midwestern roots filled my childhood with dozens upon dozens of weird, dairy-laden foods that should totally not even exist, the weirdest thing about this dish is that I had never heard of kugel until two years ago. Loaded with cream cheese, sour cream, butter and...
Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

You might wonder why a vegan atheist is reverse engineering Cadbury Creme Eggs, but look: my philosophy is that there’s (just about) never a reason not to party, okay?*
Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies

Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies

While I love a straight forward chocolate chip cookie, I find myself pairing chocolate with warm spices this time of year. These molasses chocolate chip cookies are soft, spicy, and just a touch chewy.
Toasted Coconut Chocolate Mousse

Toasted Coconut Chocolate Mousse

When I lived in Philadelphia I was fortunate enough to go to fancypants vegan restaurant Horizons* on more than one occasion, and the food totally blew my mind each time. This recipe for toasted coconut chocolate mousse comes from Horizons: New Vegan Cuisine, and it is absurdly delicious.
