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.

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.

Pecan Clusters

Pecan Clusters

There was a fancy chocolate store near the house I lived in in my teens, and some Christmases, if we were lucky, my father would bring home a sampler box of their offerings. I hate to play favorites, especially when it comes to chocolate, but for me, pecan clusters were always the highlight of those...
Vegan Buster Bars

Vegan Buster Bars

This awesome vegan ice cream dessert is modeled after a Dairy Queen novelty called Buster Bars. I’ve never actually had the chain’s trademarked version, but there are a zillion copycat recipes out there. One of these evidently caught my mother’s eye in the nineties, as she made this dessert a lot when my brothers and...
