Dreamy Baked Bananas: Featured Recipe from “The China Study All-Star Collection Cookbook” (plus giveaway)!

Many years ago I read The China Study. It was before social media, before the surge of blogging, before the “rise” of the plant-based world. Yes, we are still quite a minority as vegans, but things are drastically different than they were 10 or even 5 years ago. Vastly different than 20 years ago when… Continue Reading

Coconut Macaroons: Ricki Heller’s Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free Cookbook

Once in a while a cookbook comes along that is a game-changer. Opening its pages may introduce a new dietary approach or cuisine that forever shifts our food choices. Or, perhaps opening that book enables us to reintroduce foods we used to love, but we thought we could never delight in again because of dietary… Continue Reading

Now Available!: Plant-Powered 15 ebook (vegan, oil-free, gluten-free)

So, the last few months you may have been wondering what I’ve been up to. I’ve been posting plenty of recipes, but haven’t been talking much about personal things or our family.

Apple Hemp Muffins (vegan, wheat-free, and oil-free)

If you eat vegan or raw, you know that hemp is hot!  I’ve been using hemp seeds in my recipes for years (before it was um, ‘hip to eat hemp’).  When I started using hemp seeds and talking about them in my recipes, I got that “ohhhh, you are hippity dippity!” sort of reaction. People… Continue Reading

Natural Gingerbread Folks and Vegan Christmas Cookies (oil-free and gluten-free options)

Today I’m introducing you to my Pumpkin Cake from LTEV – and my Fluffy Macadamia Mallow Frosting.  I think it’s time you two get better acquainted.  I figure since so many readers are emailing and tagging me on facebook about this cake… and since I am feeling like giving away a few things (hint, hint, stay tuned!)… I am… Continue Reading

Sugar-Free Vegan Caramel Apples

Pumpkinfest continues today with a sweet treat for Halloween (and while technically there’s no pumpkin in this recipe, it is entirely pumpkin-related!) Did you love caramel and candy apples as a kid?  I sure did, though as a juvenile junk-food-junkie, I opted to eat the caramel or candy – but leave the apple behind (so… Continue Reading

So far Pumpkinfest and Vegan MOFO has brought us Pumpkin Pie Custards with Brulee Topping and a Chocolate Pumpkin Pie.  Today, something for everyday kind of healthy snacking.
