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...
Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

As with my mother and grandmothers before me, I spend some portion of every December preparing an array of sweet treats to share with (and send to) folks I care about. And sure, creating a dozen varieties of sugar-laden cookies and candies over the course of a weekend requires an iron stomach and a superhuman...
Mexican Wedding Cakes

Mexican Wedding Cakes

These cookies are so good that at least three different countries claim them as their own; although I always knew them as Mexican Wedding Cakes, they’re apparently also known as Russian Tea Cakes and Italian Butter Nuts. But as I’m inclined to say: a rose by any other name….
Peanut Butter Blossoms with Vegan Chocolate Kisses

Peanut Butter Blossoms with Vegan Chocolate Kisses

  Peanut butter blossoms are such a cute addition to any cookie tray. And although they’re usually made with chocolate candy centers that contain milk derivatives, they’re really easy to veganize!
Vegan Sufganiyot (Jelly Doughnuts)

Vegan Sufganiyot (Jelly Doughnuts)

With the holidays in full swing, I’m logging 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 trying...
Puppy Chow

Puppy Chow

A coworker of my mother’s gave her a bag of puppy chow as a holiday gift years ago, and my family and I have been hooked ever since.
Vegan Gingerbread Biscotti

Vegan Gingerbread Biscotti

When it’s cold outside, all I want to do is curl up with a blanket, a book, and a cup of tea. These gingerbread biscotti, from Isa’s VCTOTW, have been a welcome addition to each year’s wintry ritual. Don’t be scared off by the fact that you have to bake them twice; biscotti are really...
Best Vegan Pecan Pie

Best Vegan Pecan Pie

This is hands-down the best pecan pie I’ve had in years, if not of all time. I never liked the wet, eggy, lumpy layer so many pecan pies have, so don’t expect that. This is gooey, chewy and candy-like, packed with delicious sugars and fats.
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...
Chocolate Mint Kiss Cookies

Chocolate Mint Kiss Cookies

Peanut butter kisses are a classic cookie that never quite satisfied me, so I decided to mix things up and make chocolate mint kiss cookies instead. Just like the originals, crunchy outsides offset smooth, creamy chocolate centers. These are just as refreshing in the summer as they are a festive addition to your holiday cookie...
