Portion of Cranberry Jam (with fresh fruits)

Fresh Orange Cranberry Relish

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas, you can find fresh cranberries in grocery stores making it the perfect time to make orange cranberry relish. They are only available from mid-September to mid-November in the US so you have to get them while you can. Apparently the American cranberry is a native to the Northeastern United States and […]

Vegan Tarte Tatin

Fail Proof Vegan Tarte Tatin

Growing up in France, I have enjoyed so many wonderful apple tarts in little bistros or more fancy restaurants. Some had big chunks of apples, others were made with paper thin slices and all were out of this world. Tarte Tatin is an impressive and comforting dessert with a gorgeous glossy top and a delicate […]

vegan brownies

3-ingredient flourless Brownies

The art of baking is really more like a science than an art really.  It requires using specific ingredients and measurements, the right timing and order, and lots of practice. Truth be told, that’s probably why since I became vegan I have had a number of epic failed cakes that came out a little too […]

Hazelnut spread with nuts pieces

Easy Hazelnut Chocolate Spread

Growing up in France, I had my fair share of Nutella! This smooth, rich, sweet hazelnut chocolate spread goes on crepes, bread, “biscotte” a type of brittle bread that crunches in your mouth, on apple slices, and of course, by dipping your finger straight into the jar for instant gratification! Ok, so it was not […]

Lemon chia parfait

Refreshing Lemon Chia Parfait

So we made it through the unusual heatwave that hit Portland and Seattle this week! 110 in the Pacific Northwest! That was just crazy! Thank God we have air conditioning! All we wanted to eat was cold and refreshing food. Definitely no baking during these few days! The key is to stay hydrated and mineralized. That’s […]

Dairy-free Indian rice pudding

Dairy-Free Cardamom Rose Rice Pudding

Before I became a vegan, I used to order an incredibly rich Indian cardamon ice cream called “kulfi” at the end of a meal, to end on a sweet note and to refresh my taste buds from all the spices. I also loved the cardamon rice pudding that is usually served with the lunch buffet […]

Perfect Candied Orange peels

I have always enjoyed savory over sweet food. Growing up I didn’t really crave sweets and there weren’t a lot of sweets laying around the house. My mom made great delicate deserts. This being said I have fond memories of a store in my hometown called Maiffret. They had every possible fruit that had been […]

Vegan Low-fat coconut macaroons

Low Fat Vegan Coconut Macaroons

Vegan coconut macaroon are a great low-fat replacement of the traditional macaroons because they are eggless and don’t contain any dairy products. So in this case you can have your macaroon and eat it too! If you are ever tired of chocolate chip cookies and want something a little less sweet and more exotic, go for eggless […]

Gluten-free crepes

Best Gluten-Free French Crepes

  I am not allergic to wheat, although with maturing, I can’t eat as much bread as I used to when I grew up in Europe! Since several of my friends and a number of my students are, I wanted to experiment with different recipes, types of flours, and starch and see if I could […]

Baked strawberry rhubarb crumble

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

  My only memory of rhubard as a child was with jam, a friend used to make and give to my mom. She had a huge vegetable garden bursting with all kinds of edible treasures. I remember helping her around huge cooking pots with long fibrous stems slow cooking in her kitchen. Carefully removing the foam […]
