Better-Than-Takeout Sesame Tofu

This was a delicious treat. Quicker, cheaper, and by all means healthier than takeout chinese. We will definitely be making this one again. It would also be good made with chicken, if you’re the type that can never eat enough chicken. :) Better-Than-Takeout Sesame Tofu Makes 3-4 servings. Ingredients 1 package extra firm tofu 1...

Mango & Avocado Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

These were yummy, refreshing, and oh-so-good. Taylor revised his kick-butt peanut sauce to be even more kick-butt (if you can believe it).

Ssshhh… Don’t Tell Anyone They’re Vegan Cupcakes

also known as… So Addicting You’d Think They Were Crack Cupcakes, Lick The Beaters All You Want Because There is No Egg in Them Cupcakes, and The Best Darned Cupcakes You’ve Ever Eaten… cupcakes. Need I say more? Yes, actually. I do. When I first made these (I’ve made them 3 times since!), but the...

Plum Almond Tart

I think I may have overcooked the filling a bit (or did something wrong while making it), but it was still good nonetheless. This would be good with any summer fruit, peaches, even pears. And did I mention almonds? Plum Almond...
