Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  I fell in love with the oatmeal raisin cookie back in 2009 while my husband was working for a Financial Investment Firm in Latham, NY.   The firm had a cafeteria, and he would frequent it for mid-morning snacks, or on days that I did not pack him a lunch.  I am not sure when he…

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Summer is in full swing and that means our crops are flourishing, harvesting is happening on the daily, and food preservation has begun.  We’ve already canned a few Springtime goodies, but with summer here and the berries abundant, let the jamming begin. When it comes to making jam, in past years we have always depended…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

This recipe is often misunderstood because one of its main ingredients is scary to most people.  For some reason people run from Tofu.  I think it’s because they havent had it prepared by someone who knows how to cook with it. Tofu is actually very versatile and delicious, and it’s packed with loads of great…

Chocolate Cream Pie (Vegan)

Every night at about 7:30pm my sweet-tooth having husband walks into the kitchen and says: “I need something sweet, what do we have?” To which my usual reply is: “Jelly”. Laugh all you want, but we try really hard not to keep any sweets in the house as Jeremiah cannot control his urges. If, for…

The only thing in the fridge was yesterday’s leftovers which happened to be 2 oven-roasted sweet potatoes. In a pinch, I grabbed the blender, threw in some…

It’s no secret that my husband has an unquenchable sweet tooth.  He got it from his mama!  If I bake a batch of brownies, they wont last two days in our house…and remember, it is just him and I. No one else to blame the disappearing goodies on but him.  Bless his sugar-coated heart. One…

Blueberry Muffins

Sometimes late at night while I am lounging on the couch and watching tv, I get a hankering for something sweet.  It’s not often, but when it happens I usually start looking through the pantry for inspiration on something yummy.  Last night was no different.  The pantry is looking pretty slim pickings these days and…

Chocolate-Cherry Banana Bread

We had a few extra-ripe bananas lying around earlier this week and since everyone needs a sweet treat every now and again, we decided to indulge and make some decadent chocolate-cherry banana bread.  My husband has an unquenchable sweet tooth and so the banana bread didn’t last two days.  He ate it for breakfast, lunch…

Our surprise guest chef has finally arrived, and she comes bearing a delicious vegetarian dessert recipe to share! Our very first guest chef is…….. None other than my very own Mom!
