Garlicky Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread with Kale and Follow Your Heart Cheeses

Today is National Cheese Lovers Day. It’s funny, before I was vegan, I was not a big cheese lover. I loved two cheeses – mozzarella and grated parmesan. That’s it. So when I became vegan, giving up cheeses wasn’t such a big deal for me except when I made Italian food. Plus, when I became […]

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 […]
