Classic Vegan Carrot Cake

Classic Vegan Carrot Cake

Spring is finally here!  Well, calendar wise at least, it is still a bit chilly but there are glimpses of it with the pussy willows popping out along the pond, and a few plants starting to sprout out of the ground, plus of course the longer days.  After winter I am...

Grandma’s Banana Bread Veganized

Grandma’s Banana Bread Veganized

My Mom made the best banana bread when I was little. It was my Great Grandma's recipe, passed down to my Grandma, then to my Mom.  Written out on a recipe card, from a time long before we could look up recipes online. I have tried many different kinds, we often had...

Vegan Peppermint Marble Cake

Vegan Peppermint Marble Cake

St. Patrick's day is less than 2 weeks away, so it is the perfect time to make all things green.  Especially fun desserts.  Cakes are my favorite.  So even though I made a green cheesecake last week, I decided to make another different green cake this week.  Last year...

Vegan Grasshopper Cheesecake

Vegan Grasshopper Cheesecake

     When I was a kid, my Mom and I used to go to this local diner that had the best grasshopper malts.  I loved those things.  Smooth peppermint ice cream base, with gooey chocolate fudge, it was totally heavenly!  So sometimes now, I like to create desserts with...

Chocolate and oranges are a match made in heaven. My Mom used to buy dark chocolate oranges, shaped like an actual orange with sections when I was little and I thought they were the coolest thing ever. I mean chocolate is already the coolest, but make it shaped like...

Since it is Valentine's week, I am using that as an excuse to make all things pink and girly.  Yes, that includes making cards and whatnot, but desserts are part of that too.  I had already made some chocolate, so it was time to whip up something else so I have a nice...

Vegan Vanilla Cake

Vegan Vanilla Cake

I can't believe that I started this blog 10 years ago. Although it didn't really start as a blog.  It started out as a way to share my recipes all in one place, somewhere other than just in my Facebook notes.  I was experimenting with new recipes all the time, and...

Vegan Tiramisu Cheesecake

Vegan Tiramisu Cheesecake

     The first time I ever tried tiramisu was at an Italian restaurant with my Mom when we were on a family vacation. I wasn't a huge fan of coffee at the time, but it still sounded interesting so I ordered some.  It was fabulous!  Layers of soft cakey lady fingers...

Vegan Tahini Chocolate Cake 

Vegan Tahini Chocolate Cake 

I am a big fan of tahini.  It is good in savory applications like hummus, dressing and sauces, but it is equally good in desserts.  I had bought a bunch of tahini for making halva, and decided that a chocolate and tahini dessert will be amazing.  What I decided on was...

Vegan Raspberry Rose Cheesecake

Vegan Raspberry Rose Cheesecake

I know we are far from summer, but I am missing summer berries, so I thought I would make a raspberry cheesecake to remind me of it.  When I was little my favorite kind of cheesecake was the kind with the raspberry swirls.  Whenever someone had one of those cheesecake...
