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...
Vegan Caramel Peanut Popcorn (Cracker Jack)

Vegan Caramel Peanut Popcorn (Cracker Jack)

I’m always blown away by the prices people are willing to pay for flavored popcorn. Seriously, popcorn is so easy to make, and it’s super cheap to boot! So when I found out that a friend was a big fan of Cracker Jack, I set out to make some comparable...
Raw Zucchini Salad

Raw Zucchini Salad

This bright and flavorful raw zucchini salad is loaded with fresh tomatoes and tender zucchini noodles. It looks fancy, but it’s fast, simple, and doesn’t require the use of a stove — all prerequisites for a good summer meal, in my book.
Black Bean and Corn Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Summer food: because you can’t actually spend 12 hours a day loitering in air-conditioned coffee shops. Because laying on the kitchen floor and humming the same NoFX song for hours at a time will get to you at a certain point. Because humans cannot survive on carrot sticks and ice...
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...

Chipotle Hummus

Chipotle Hummus

At some point last year, I unwittingly became one of those people who eats a big pile of raw veggies for lunch every day. It all started late one night when I didn’t have time to cook lunch for the following day, and it just kind of stuck. Turns out that in my old age...
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?
Edible Gift Ideas and a Giveaway!

Edible Gift Ideas and a Giveaway!

Hey readers! I hope you’re all keeping safe, healthy, and warm, and feeling as invigorated by the cold and general end-of-year excitement as I am. For my part, I spent most of this snowy weekend making cookies and candies to give to friends and family. If you need a visual, just think about being elbow-deep...
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...
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.
Walnut Lentil Beet Burgers

Walnut Lentil Beet Burgers

I saw recipes for beet burgers floating around the blogosphere for months before I finally got around to making them. Once I did, I was totally hooked! (Not much of a surprise, of course, given how much I love beets.) I’ve tried — and been inspired by — a half dozen different recipes, but this...
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,...
Zine Giveaway

Zine Giveaway

Zines were a big part of my life for a long time. I helped run a zine library in college, a zine distro after college, and the Philly Zine Fest for three years, so let’s just say I’ve gotten my hands on a ton of food-related zines over the years! As it’s the last full...
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,...
Homemade Applesauce

Homemade Applesauce

Applesauce is one of the staples of my freezer. I always have some on hand to use as a binder/egg replacer in bars and cookies, make applesauce muffins, and spoon over pierogies and latkes. Apple season is finally upon us, so I figured I’d walk you through my steps for processing and preserving this versatile...
