Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes

Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes

My friend Kate was willing to sacrifice a birthday dinner so she could watch a co-ed softball game that her friends play on. That’s friendship. To show how special she is, I thought I would surprise Kate with cake! Kate is also vegan, which makes […]

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

I really enjoy it when my friends send me recipes. My friend Kate came across this recipe for gluten-free (and vegan) cinnamon rolls. I really enjoyed the bagels that I made from a recipe from Fork and Beans, so I was happy to try it […]

Miso-Carrot Soup

Miso-Carrot Soup

I don’t make single-vegetable soups very often. I’ve eaten enough boring ones to be indifferent. I like a little more texture in my soup than you usually get from a pureed or cream soup. I like my soup to be hearty; I don’t want a […]

Bread Week 9: My friend Kate (hi Kate!) frequents vegan food blogs and has been kind enough to send me gluten-free recipes she comes across. I’m not vegan, but I appreciate recipes that use innovative ways to make food, which vegan recipes do. My bread […]

Blueberry Crisp Ice Cream

Blueberry Crisp Ice Cream

I’ve given up dairy for the past few weeks, cutting all butter and milk from my cooking and my diet. It’s more than just not eating obvious foods like butter and cheese and milk and ice cream, though. Milk is an ingredient in so many […]

Chocolate Orange Sorbet

Chocolate Orange Sorbet

Today’s high in St. Louis was 81F. Tomorrow’s high is 97F. Is it any wonder that I have ice cream on the mind? Recently I’ve shifted my obsession with ice cream to a preoccupation with sorbet. I decided I needed to switch from rich and […]

Horchata

Horchata

My friend Kate had a vegan taco night at her house. There are a number of delicious vegan foods – like salsa or guacamole – that I could have made to take that night. Instead, I decided that it was the perfect time for me […]

219: Calabacitas

219: Calabacitas

I tried Calabacitas, another recipe I could make with my zucchini. This was a very simple recipe. I used 4 cups of diced zucchini rather than half zucchini and half summer squash, and one diced poblano. This was very fast and easy to make. We […]
