  • Extreme Chocolate Brownie Waffles

    Extreme Chocolate Brownie Waffles

    In this adapted recipe from the Veganomicon, I’ve taken a bit of reserved batter to make a brownie batter sauce to pour over the waffles for that gooey, chocolaty goodness. I did not use soy yogurt from this recipe and opted to use just a few chocolate chips, since the waffles were going to be topped…

  • What’s Coming Up, Thanksgiving 2010

    Thanksgiving is a wonderful concept — a yearly celebration often spent with friends and family to be thankful for having food on the table. As someone that enjoys preparing meals from scratch, it’s one of my most favored holidays. Butterflake Rolls, Herb-seasoned Stuffing, and Mashed Potatoes This Thanksgiving, we’re going to put together many of…

  • Roasted Delicata Fries

    Roasted Delicata Fries

    Roasted Delicata Fries have the sweet, soft filling of a sweet potato fry and are really simple to prepare. As you might expect, it’s best to serve them hot, right after coming out of the oven. There’s no need to peel the Delicata squash in this recipe, the skin softens while roasting.

I spent the better part of the day perfecting these vegan butterflake rolls, and they came out of the oven more buttery, flaky, and delicious than I could have hoped! Not only…

  • Creamy Autumn Butternut Squash Soup

    Creamy Autumn Butternut Squash Soup

    This creamy butternut squash soup is simple to make and has a wonderfully unique flavor that is not often found in a made-from-scratch soup. The sharp balsamic vinegar blends well with the light taste of butternut squash. Topping each bowl of soup with fresh dill really balances out the dish. * I use the Cuisinart Hand…

  • Caramelized Carrots

    These caramelized carrots are naturally sweet and aromatic with the perfect amount of savory spices. We enjoy this (perhaps best ever) carrot recipe year-round, especially on those brisk autumn days! Traditional orange carrots are excellent in this recipe, but I had some yellow carrots from the farmer’s market that were begging to be caramelized. Of…
