My favorite black bean soup

On this first day of winter (can you believe it?) I’ve decided to post the recipe for my favorite black bean soup. This is a perfect vegan winter dish, and it’s so hearty that even my dad and brother love it. If you can eat sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, they are great toppings … Continue reading

Holiday potluck dish: Sweet potato casserole

Have you ever had a cookbook from which you only ever used one recipe? Well, I have a lot of those, so during a recent move, I decided to get rid of a few. Naturally, one of them would have come in handy this past weekend, but the recipe was so simple it turns out … Continue reading

Thanksgiving 2011 success #2: Gluten-free stuffing

I never was a big fan of bread stuffing — it was either the texture or the spices or both. So when I found out I was allergic to wheat in 2005, I figured I could go without stuffing. But I realized it’s nice to have an alternative to such holiday staples, just so I … Continue reading

Thanksgiving 2011 success #1: Gluten-free, vegan, soy-free pumpkin pie!

My favorite breakfast: Banana smoothie

She’s never been big on junk food, and this was a good way to make sure overripe bananas didn’t go to waste. I high school, my preferred breakfast was very similar: peanut butter … Continue reading

The Dairy Dilemma — Or, ‘What can I do when I’m allergic to both dairy and soy?’

Before starting my allergy-friendly diet, I loved dairy products. I drank milk with many meals; I ate yogurt and cheese all the time. I never understood people who didn’t like dairy products. Because I have never cared for eating a lot of meat and I’ve known about my egg allergy since 2005, dairy products seemed … Continue reading

BabyCakes attempt #1: Pancakes

Do you ever wake up craving pancakes? I often do. I usually wake up hoping someone else will make them for me. :) A few days ago, I decided to give in and try a pancake recipe I’ve been wanting to make for a while. It’s the first recipe in “BabyCakes Covers the Classics,” the … Continue reading

Alicia Silverstone’s sinfully amazing chocolate (nut)butter cups

I always get a crazy craving for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups just before Halloween (and just before Easter, when they release the awesome egg-shaped cups). So last week, I finally tried Alicia Silverstone’s vegan chocolate peanut butter cup recipe — making appropriate allergy-friendly substitutions, of course. I first heard of Alicia’s recipe when she was … Continue reading
