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...
Matzo Ball Soup

Matzo Ball Soup

For someone raised Gentile, I have always had an inexplicable love of matzo. It probably has something to do with never having been forced to eat the stuff for days on end, but whatever: I’m into it. You know what else I’m into? This matzo ball soup.
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?*
Warm Cabbage Salad

Warm Cabbage Salad

Have I mentioned that I love cabbage in all its forms? Because I do. This warm cabbage salad is a beautiful, bright, and nutty salad certain to cheer you up when the weather gets cool and the leaves start to fade.

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...
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 caramel peanut popcorn.
Panzanella

Panzanella

I was first introduced to panzanella by one of my college housemates, who had this recipe written out on a piece of paper simply headed “what to do with old bread.” As the title suggests, this is a great way to use up slightly stale or dried out bread, or just to squeeze more bread...
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...
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.
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...
