Rustic Onion Dill Bread

When I was a child, a family that occasionally watched me had a painting in their dining room that I would often stare at. Years later I learned this painting was actually a retouched photograph titled, Grace, by an artist named Eric Enstrom. It shows […]

Brunch Waffles

Brunch Waffles

My kitchen is on the small side , so I can’t keep a lot of unnecessary, one-use gadgets lying around. This challenge of limited space kept me from making waffles for a long time, until I purchased some lovely silicone waffle molds that were easy […]

Vegan Creme Brûlée

Some of my all-time favorite foods have copious amounts of egg in them, such as quiche, creme brûlée, and flan. Since developing an allergy to eggs, I have turned to recipes that use various types of egg replacements, and often these recipes are total kitchen […]

SPAM, glorious, SPAM. In case you didn’t know, Hawaii LOVES it’s SPAM, as a matter of fact, over seven million cans a year are estimated to be consumed in the Aloha State. We even have an annual festival for it on the Island of O’ahu. […]

Vegan Fajitas

Vegan Fajitas

I feel like I’ve cracked some mysterious code to preparing dinner with this fajita recipe. Bold Tex-Mex flavors seem to be an all-around crowd pleaser, and these fajitas are no exception. This recipe was so ridiculously easy to make, and there was not one single […]

Spooky Potion Bottles

For our 2018 Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to honor the 20th anniversary of our beloved Harry Potter, and of course, have a Hogwarts-themed dinner, complete with the most wizardly decorations. I wanted to get an early start on making the decorations because […]

Pizza Dough

Pizza Dough

Like a taco salad, pizza is the kind of thing that you can dress up anyway you want. It is a clean slate onto which you can build a slice of perfection to your own personal taste. It was especially helpful this past ‘Mostly Vegan […]
