Product Review: Sirabella’s Vegan Cheesecake!!!

Today, May 26th, is National Blueberry Cheesecake Day so it’s the perfect day to sing the praises of Sirabella’s Vegan Cheesecake. Growing up, my mother always made cheesecake with ricotta and cream cheese. Everyone loved it. I wasn’t a fan of cheesecake; it was too tangy for my not-yet-grown-up taste buds. Since I’ve been vegan […]

Lately, I’ve been craving pizza. A lot. But I didn’t want to make a giant pie with yeast and kneading and the oven. I wanted pizza that was quick, easy and cooked on the stove top. And crunchy. I like my pizza crispy as opposed to chewy. That’s where flatbread pizza comes in. I’ve shared […]

Raw or Almost Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake

I don’t post a lot of raw recipes. In fact, this may only be the second one in the years since this blog began. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for raw food but except for salads, I prefer my food hot.  The hotter, the better. Cheesecake, however, is one food you don’t eat hot […]

Flourless Nut Butter Cookies and Tofu in Spicy Peanut Sauce Plus a Review of Once Again Nut Butters

I do not like peanut butter and jelly. Nope, never have, never will. It’s probably because I don’t have a sweet tooth. I do, however, love peanut butter and cream cheese. When I was in grade school, every Friday the cafeteria would be closed for the upcoming Shabbos and each classroom would get a tray […]

Vegan Caramel Popcorn and G.H. Cretors Popped Corn Review

You know the saying on the potato chips commercial about how “you can’t eat just one”? Well, I’m sure they wrote that for me because I love salty, crunchy snacks and when I get near a bowl or bag of potato chips, it won’t last very long. My best defense is to not buy any […]

They were the softest, […]

In this last week of VeganMoFo, I’m posting recipes and they probably use some vegan products I can give a shout-out to.

How to Make a Vegan Passover Seder Plate Plus a Recipe for Charoset

  Anyone who has been to a Passover Seder knows that the Seder Plate is the centerpiece of the table. It is rich with symbolism of the Exodus of the Hebrew slaves and is a main part of the Seder’s ceremonial rituals. But some of the items on the Seder plate are not vegan-friendly and […]

Vegan Apple Mini-Galettes and Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pie Crust Mix

  “Easy as pie.” I’ve always had issues with this saying. Tom uses it a lot and it’s become a sort of bit between us. He says something is as “easy as pie” and I reply, “Pie is not easy!” Because to me, baking is not easy. While I am not as baking-challenged as I […]

Gluten-Free Cookies For Santa: Chocolate Hazelnut Drop Cookies and Chai Spice Cookies

Did you hear the news about Santa? If the word on the strip mall circuit is correct, Santa has gone gluten-free! Apparently, all the flour from all the cookies all these years has taken a toll on his intestines. Maybe Santa’s round belly is filled with more bloating gases than jelly. I also hear that […]
