Vegan Corn Dogs

Vegan Corn Dogs

I’ve lived most of my life in the Northeastern United States, but there are always those moments when I am reminded that I really hail from the Midwest. Case in point: I still can’t get over the fact that there are adults in this country who have never eaten a corn dog. What’s more, many...
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 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?*
Vegan Reuben with Corned Beef Seitan

Vegan Reuben with Corned Beef Seitan

Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day, this recipe for corned beef seitan should please even the biggest weirdo corned beef purist. What you do with this knowledge is up to you, but I highly suggest getting a bunch of friends together and celebrating with a tray of vegan reubens.
Potato Skins

Potato Skins

You wouldn’t exactly call me a football fan. My football-related credentials can be boiled down to two things: at a certain point in college I really enjoyed avoiding writing papers by playing 10-Yard Fight, and at one point in my life, I listened to that embarrassingly homonymous band. I really have nothing bad to say about...
Vegan Jalapeño Poppers

Vegan Jalapeño Poppers

I might not love televised sports, but I do love hot peppers. So when everyone else in the U.S. is chowing down on fried foods next weekend, don’t despair! Vegan jalapeño poppers are totally within reach.
Vegan Sufganiyot (Jelly Doughnuts)

Vegan Sufganiyot (Jelly Doughnuts)

With the holidays in full swing, I’m packing in some serious kitchen hours. If I haven’t replied to your e-mail or comment, trust that it’s because every surface in my apartment is coated in a thick layer of powdered sugar, and I’m knee-deep in containers of fudge, swearing profusely at my candy thermometer and desperately...
Vegan Little Wieners

Vegan Little Wieners

Also known as little smokies or cocktail wieners, little wieners are basically miniature hot dogs, usually served in some sort of barbecue sauce, and intended to be eaten with toothpicks. (Because what’s more American than protein on a stick?)
Vegan Overnight Breakfast Casserole

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...
Dirt Cake

Dirt Cake

Growing up, my mother always made special cakes for my birthday — cakes so good-looking that I’m sure all of my friends wished they had a mother like mine. Usually this involved copious amounts of painstakingly applied frosting, and, if I was really lucky, some decorative sugar cubes. But my 7th birthday party was a...
Vegan Butterfinger Candy

Vegan Butterfinger Candy

When I was little, my brothers and I would go trick-or-treating together, and when we got home, we’d pour our respective hauls out of their pillowcases. We’d organize our candy by type, putting everything in order of personal preference. Then the bartering began. Piece by piece, we’d trade off the things we didn’t like until...
Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

Today and tomorrow, allow me to introduce you to two of my all-time favorite candy recipes, which are super easy to make right in your kitchen. Let’s start with my hands-down childhood...
