Maple Bacon Cupcakes

Adapted from Maple Cupcakes in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. The concept of the Maple Bacon Cupcake is not original. I didn’t know this until I sat down to write this blog post. A lot of people have made this cupcake, but they seem to just put bacon bits into the batter or they…

Homage to Sunnyside Farms – Banana Ice Cream

When I was a little girl, my family and I would take trips to a place called Sunnyside Farms. It was a farm that had acres of land and stinky cows. Though they did smell, I remember their smell fondly. You couldn’t smell it until you got on that stretch of road that led out-of-town…

Vegan Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I have been sick these last few days. I randomly woke up with sinus issues and I think it’s because I ate a lot a of dairy leading up to the day it hit me. JCB and her husband call this the Dairy Threshold. I found it and ran way, way past it. Anyway, Tuesdays…

Chocolate Orange Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache

Last night, I was thumbing through Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (because I read cookbooks at bed time like a true fat kid) and I decided to make chocolate orange cupcakes.  I have not successfully made a cupcake in a while, so I figured now was a good time to try again. I was…

FKF – Peach Melba Sorbet

First, I need to say that this recipe is a mash up of several I have encountered. The biggest contributor and inspiration for this recipe is the lovely Nigella Lawson. I saw her make Peach Melba on one of her ridiculously sexy episodes of Nigella Feasts. The second person to inspire this recipe was Alton…

FKF: Blood Orange Sorbet

Blood oranges are in season. I love them because they are so, well, bloody. From the outside, they look like oranges, but when you peel them, they look like this: They are sweet and tart. They don’t really taste like what you’d expect from an orange. Think grapefruit and orange, but not really. Blood oranges…

FKF: Ginger Snap Ice Cream Sandwiches

I have not abandoned you! My semester JUST ended and I am officially back with a recipe that is sure to please your loved ones. I made this lovely dessert exactly one month ago, but now is the perfect time to debut them to the world. Though I did use vegan ginger snaps, the coffee ice cream…

FKF: Vegan Nut-Free Banana Bread

I am a sucker for a good banana bread. Sadly, most banana bread is not Nina-Friendly. Honestly, neither is this one. I made this bread for my mom because she wasn’t feeling well and I like to think it made her feel a bit better. I didn’t use any added sugar. It is vegan and…

Fruity Green Juice

A friend of mine suggested that I do post on juicing. I bought a monster cucumber from Wolff’s Apple House and I said I was going to juice it. She said she had no idea one could juice a cucumber. You can juice pretty much anything. Most fruits and veggies have very high water content…
