This has to be one of my favorite meals, vegan or not. It’s even better in the summer when the vegetables are in season and you can wash it down with a glass of crisp white. By the way, still on the Daniel Fast. One. More. Week. So, here’s the meal. First I make homemade [...]
Sugar-free and chocolate-free truffles? Yep, officially doing the Daniel Fast and I so far feel great…physically.

Bloggers have been going crazy over these things for months. From what I gather the craze began with Bakerella, who is a massively talented baker/blogger, and she [...]
This has been on my to-do list for two years now. With all of the chocoholics in my family I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get the few ingredients together it takes to make my own chocolate. Now you might look at the list of ingredients and be tempted to file it [...]
Okay, listen up. This may be the most important culinary secret you ever hear. Many people believe the true test of a chef’s talent can be judged by their ability to make an omelet. Well, the equivalent test for a baker is the chocolate chip cookie and let’ s be honest, that is far more [...]
I have spent the past week engrossed in a new book and I just have to share it. I went to Local Burger a few weeks ago and saw a copy of Growing Roots: The New Generation of Sustainable Farmers, Cooks, and Food Activists sitting on the shelf and I was intrigued. Well if you [...]
