Ma'amoul date filled cookies

Vegan Maamoul Cookies

I recently found a mason jar filled with old dried dates in the pantry. They looked like they had been there for a long time. They didn’t look very plump but I knew that if I rehydrated them I could at least make some date paste or syrup. What can you do with that? You […]

Flourless oatmeal quinoa bars

Ultimate Flourless Oat Quinoa bars

Flourless cookies are quite popular these days. White flour may be cheap and practical but it does have its toll on our gut health over time. That’s the reason why people have come up with some very creative alternatives. You can use a combination of gluten-free flour, nut butter or ripe bananas. If you are […]

Matcha tea vegan ice cream

Creamy Dairy-free Matcha Tea Ice Cream with Mango Coulis

Since most of the country is currently under an advisory heat wave, what better time to make ice cream! Sure, you can buy some but it could be melted by the time you get home! Making it from scratch is fun, healthier because there are no additives. It gives you the ability to experiment with […]

Baked pear

Baked Pears in Agave Lemon Syrup

Pears make great deserts, whether you add them to tarts, turn then into sherbet, or poach them.  Poached pears are usually cooked in red wine. It wasn’t until I decided to make them that I realized how much wine is needed to poach 4 pears! I even used my favorite non-alcoholic red wine, Fre Rouge and […]

vegan Indian cardamom ice cream

Creamy Dairy-Free Kulfi Ice Cream

The first time I tasted kulfi, I thought I died and went to heaven. After a rich and spicy Indian meal, it cleansed my palate, delivered just the right amount of sweetness, and creaminess.  What I loved was that every bite was infused with a lovely cardamom and pistachio flavors, and yet I couldn’t see […]

Apple Muffins

Best Chunky Vegan Apple Muffins

Back in the days when we lived in the California Bay area, we discovered the best apple muffins at our local farmer’s market. They were in fact the first vegan and truly light and fluffy cakes we had since we became vegan. They were so big that we used to split them in half for […]

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 […]
