Chocolate-Drizzled Vegan Cannoli with Fresh Peaches

I think one of the absolute best things about summer is the peaches - never at another time can you get one that tastes as perfect as it does in mid-August. There is just something about that perfectly juicy, ripe and fragrant fruit ~ nothing else can compare to it. So this is how I… Continue reading Chocolate-Drizzled Vegan Cannoli with Fresh Peaches

(Mostly) Raw Blackberry-Lavender Ice Cream

Now it's the middle of August, and I'm wondering where the summer has gone - didn't it just begin? Somehow it passed without my even realizing it.

Carrot Cake Waffles

What was breakfast like when you were a child? I remember lots of little flavored oatmeal and cream of wheat packets, cold cereal, and the occasional Pop Tart (when I could convince my mother to buy some). And very occasionally, there were frozen waffles or those little toaster pastries with the frosting that you can… Continue reading Carrot Cake Waffles

Quick & Easy Vegan Corn Chowder

A couple of years ago, when I first started teaching vegan cooking classes, I developed a recipe for vegan corn chowder based on one by Tal Ronnen in The Conscious Cook. It's a great recipe, but a bit on the heavy side, filled with thick cashew cream, Daiya cheese, potatoes, etc. This recipe is very… Continue reading Quick & Easy Vegan Corn Chowder
