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…

Pineapple Mango Sorbet

I bought myself this fancy pants attachment for my KitchenAid mixer that makes ice cream. I justified this purchase because of all the money I save by being allergic to everything. (Note the snark) Needless to say, you’ll need some sort of ice cream maker for this recipe. You will also need to make a…

Turbinado Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

In the last week I have only managed to churn out food that was beige both literally and figuratively. I have been having some belly problems that I recently got checked out. I need more medical tests, but I am going to have to figure out the whole insurance thing before I can even think…
