This week Joanna made amazing vanilla macarons. The idea came kind of last minute (which is not ideal for how long these take), so our commitment to the recipe from Crazy Vegan Kitchen is somewhat iffy. The recipe calls for raspberries and rose extract but we just ended up going with plain vanilla almond flavors,… Continue reading Macaron Madness
This week Jo made an amazing chocolate mousse from @Lazycatkitchen. The recipe calls for 70% dark chocolate, which ensured the mousse wasn’t too sweet. We added about a tablespoon of sugar, but hindsight says a little bit more would have been better. However, this turned out delicious. The secret to keeping this mousse vegan is… Continue reading Mousse au Chocolat
This week Jo is away, so I took over with a friend. We baked these delicious vegan pecan pie shortbread cookies from @emotionalbaker – no eggs means no egg substitutes, just coconut milk to replace cow’s milk in the traditional recipe. The recipe calls for maple syrup in the caramel – we were lucky enough… Continue reading You (pe)can do it!
Continuing our health kick from last week, just a little less healthy. This week Jo made peach cobblers from Chloe Coscarelli (aka @chefchloe), from her book Chloe’s Vegan Desserts. Although Summer is quickly slipping away, these tasty desserts were packed with summery flavors – the fruit can be replaced with any summer fruit – berries,… Continue reading Peach don’t kill my vibe

Cookies have always been a favorite to make, they’re almost therapeutic at this point. Anyway, these are a continuation of last week’s health kick – and… Continue reading Oat of this World!
Joanna here! Yes I am posting directly for once (but maybe not for the last time). This week I played it a little safe with a recipe I’ve made before, but in a baking context I’m not very familiar with. Or rather, a non-baking context, as these little nuggets of sweetness are raw. The beauty… Continue reading You’re in Truffle!
This week Joanna made Lemon Thumbprint cookies, from a recipe by the lovely Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Just like last week, it came straight from her new cookbook, The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook. She’s really digging it right now, there are so many new recipes to choose from. Anyway, these cookies came out really delicious… Continue reading Lemony Thumbs
