Gingerbread Donuts

Gingerbread Donuts

Gingerbread is no longer reserved to the houses and men. Though as adorable as they might be, a tower of Gingerbread Donuts is just as cute! This holiday spice is expanding and branching out to flavor all the goodies that it can and mini donuts are not excluded. I’ve been stuck in my house for the past...
Homemade Fortune Cookies

Homemade Fortune Cookies

There’s an amazing party going on over at Keepin’ It Kind where the cookies are abounding. Our gracious (and oh-so-gorgeous) hostess with the mostess, Kristy, has been parading cookies galore all over her place, enticing us to bake while we still have the energy within. Today I was invited to come on over and I thought I would bake her something...
Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Remember those Peanut Butter Chocolate Kisses Cookies you once loved making as a kid? You know, the ones that you ate more of the Kisses than actually put on the cookies itself?  And remember these homemade White Chocolate Peppermint Kisses (click on the underlined words for the link) that I made a couple of weeks...
Mini Gingerbread Houses

Mini Gingerbread Houses

Writing a cookbook has been a cathartic experience for me. Yesterday, I worked diligently in the kitchen, working hard to finish up my manuscript and I kept enduring failure after failure. In fact, this entire week has been chockfull of failures that has left me questioning what the hell I am even doing. It’s beginning...
Gluten-Free Vegan Cranberry Bliss Bars

Gluten-Free Vegan Cranberry Bliss Bars

 The Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar. It’s visibility to those of us standing in line, waiting for our favorite fall hot beverage, is a signal that a new holiday is approaching.  One that brings magic and wonderment…and Cranberry Bliss Bars. I’m rather shocked at the fact that I am already passing over another great holiday full of...

Candy Cane Oreos. That’s right, you are not seeing incorrectly. Gluten-free. Vegan. You can find my recipe here over at Keepin’ It Kind and you can also view these bad boys as Honorable Mention for VegNews’ Holiday Cookie Contest.  The end.
Raw Vegan Eggnog

Raw Vegan Eggnog

There are some traditions that should never be let go of just because you cannot consume a certain type of food. For me, that’s eggnog, hands down–probably my most favorite part of this season. I used to never say no to eggnog… Imagine my delight when non-dairy milk brands were coming out with their own...
Gluten-Free Vegan Gingerbread Men

Gluten-Free Vegan Gingerbread Men

Have you been feeling down this holiday season because you are gluten-free? Have you felt that pang in your heart as you have had to pass the plate of...
Vegan Cranberry Cheese Crumble

Vegan Cranberry Cheese Crumble

Julia Child said to never apologize for what you put on the table for your guests. Always smile and never give away that you made a mistake. Chances are, they will never know anyway… I’m breaking her rule right now by admitting that as I attempted to duplicate Brooke’s Cranberry Bars, I wanted to make them fancy...
Easy Vegan Fudge

Easy Vegan Fudge

Vegan fudge…. This fudge is decadent. It’s rich. It melts in your mouth. Need I say more? And it’s only 5 ingredients (not counting the nuts because I know some peope don’t like them…shame!) Now, don’t get held up over the fact that coconut cream is used in this recipe. I know it only makes sense...
Vegan Cream Cheese & Date Roll Ups

Vegan Cream Cheese & Date Roll Ups

When Brooke sent me this recipe to convert into a gluten, egg, and dairy-free treat, I had never heard of such a thing. A concept completely new to me: a date stuffed with pecans, rolled into a cream cheese dough, baked and then dusted with powdered sugar. I had absolutely no idea of what to...
Gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
