Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Individual Spinach Artichoke Flatbread Pizza

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 […]

Purim Lessons and Vegan, Gluten-Free Hamantaschen

Purim is coming! Purim has always been my favorite Jewish holiday, probably because it’s one of the few where you can make noise in synagogue and it’s not only ok, it’s encouraged. Everyone gets noisemakers called groggers and you can stamp your feet loudly. It’s the most fun you get to have in temple. Over […]

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 […]

VeganMoFo #19: Vegan Products I Love – More on The Vegg Baking Mix

I already reviewed The Vegg Baking Mix last week and shared a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. Since writing that post, I used The Vegg Baking Mix to make Challah and Challah Rolls for Rosh Hashanah. Well, the Challah is for Rosh Hashanah tonight but the rolls were for last night. They were the softest, […]

VeganMoFo #18: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Challah Rolls with a Few Vegan Products

In this last week of VeganMoFo, I’m posting recipes and they probably use some vegan products I can give a shout-out to. It’s a little detour from my theme of highlighting vegan products because tomorrow is Rosh Hashanah and I wanted to get in a few holiday-specific recipes. Be sure to check out my Rosh […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free Biscuits: Pumpkin Feta and Garlic & Rosemary Cheddar

A couple of years ago I attempted baking gluten-free biscuits. This was when I had first started eating gluten-free. They were terrible! Either they came out dry and crumbly or as heavy as a hockey puck. I chalked it up as a loss, reaffirmed my hatred of baking and moved on to other recipes. But […]
