Blueberry Cream Oatmeal

Blueberry Cream Oatmeal

Attentive readers will note that I do in fact only ever eat one of two things for breakfast: oatmeal or pancakes. Cereal’s expensive, toast is boring, vegan yogurt is constantly being discontinued, waffles are inferior to pancakes, and a worthy bagel is as rare in Connecticut as a respectful mosh...

Roasted Pear and Fig Oatmeal

Roasted Pear and Fig Oatmeal

Two years ago, the only thing I craved for breakfast on the weekend was pancakes. For months and months, I ate pancakes — drizzled with maple syrup, alongside a mug of hot coffee — every single Saturday morning before heading out to the pottery studio. If my partner was doing the cooking, I would sometimes...

Broccoli Tahini Bisque

Broccoli Tahini Bisque

Fall has officially returned, and with it my penchant for soups. This broccoli tahini bisque is almost as easy to make as it is luscious. Yeah, “luscious.” You read that right!
Banana Nut Porridge with Oatmeal, Quinoa, and Teff

Banana Nut Porridge with Oatmeal, Quinoa, and Teff

Overnight oats are my default breakfast in the summer, but once the temperatures begin to drop, I like to spend chilly mornings cozied up with a hot bowl of oatmeal. This banana nut porridge with rolled oats, quinoa, and teff is currently my favorite weekend breakfast.
Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

For the first couple of months of summer, I made fresh spring rolls like it was my job. By the time August rolled (ha!) around, I’d mostly lost my patience for assembling them. I got lazy, okay? And thusly was Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad born!

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!
Raw Tacos

I’ve been seeing recipes for raw tacos around the Web for years, but I never felt at all compelled to try them. I mean, tacos are perfect the way they are, right? It’s not like you have to do anything special to make a delicious vegan taco.

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...
