Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread

I’m pretty sure there’s no produce grocery stores love throwing out more than bananas. And as I have spent a significant fraction of my life inside grocery store dumpsters, I can say without an ounce of hyperbole that I have made fourteen million loaves of banana bread in my life. (Okay, fine: maybe one ounce!)...
Raw Oatmeal Raisin Balls

Raw Oatmeal Raisin Balls

Were yesterday’s gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookies still not healthy enough for you? Then perhaps these raw oatmeal raisin balls will be more your style!
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.
Raw Tacos

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.
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...
Basil Walnut Pesto

Basil Walnut Pesto

Last year, my brother grew an obscene amount of basil on the back porch of his apartment in Brooklyn, and when he visited New Haven at summer’s end, I was the lucky recipient of a huge jar of pesto.* I just about died from happiness. Then I just about died from fullness, because I polished...
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 co-op every Sunday morning.  But...
Vegan Revel Bars

Vegan Revel Bars

This next recipe is a favorite passed down from my mother’s mother. They’ve always been referred to in my family as “Revel Bars,” though a few years ago I found eerily similar recipe in Joy of Cooking called “Chocolate Oat Bars.” In any case, a quick google shows that this name (and basic recipe) is...
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….
Applesauce Muffins

Applesauce Muffins

When I posted the recipe for cappuccino chocolate chip muffins this summer, I mentioned having been a touch skeptical about my grandma’s aversion to decadent breakfast foods. But recently, I came across a recipe for applesauce muffins attributed to my grandmother in her church cookbook. Naturally, I was compelled to veganize it.
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.
Health Nut Cream Cheese

Health Nut Cream Cheese

When I was little, there was a bagel shop nearby that my mother would take me to on special occasions. She would order a bowl of soup and a bagel, and I would get a cinnamon raisin bagel with Health Nut Cream Cheese. In retrospect, the moniker is a bit puzzling, as it was not...
