Chocolate + mint. Could there be a more divine combination? I’m kinda partial to chocolate + caramel as well, come to think of it. And chocolate + cherry rocks pretty well, too. Oh, and chocolate + pumpkin. And what the heck–chocolate and chocolate is always a winner, isn’t it?) But yeah, chocolate + mint is way […]
It’s kind of a cliché already; you’re probably familiar with “Whole Paycheck Market” (aka Whole Foods). Or maybe you’ve heard it referred to as the grocery store where they accept “Yuppie Food Stamps” (aka twenty dollar bills). Where eco-conscious, health conscious, modern parents shop (aka rich folks. Or food bloggers).
Today I’m thrilled to share a recipe from my friend Allyson Kramer’s new book, Sweet Eats for All. Anyone who knows Allyson knows that she’s a spectacular vegan and gluten-free baker (and cook in general!) with three bestselling cookbooks under her belt.

Lacto-fermented sauerkraut–and other naturally fermented foods, like kimchi–are staples on most anti-candida diets, too. They’re bursting with healthy probiotics and taste great as […]
[photo: Nicole Axworthy] Okay, before I even begin today’s post, let me state unequivocally: I am not going to make any references whatsoever to the Super Bowl. (Oh, wait, I guess technically, I did just that. Harumph). As many of you long-time readers know, the HH and I have virtually no interest in football, or […]
It may have taken a while, but I’ve finally come to embrace my inner nerd and display her proudly (rather than try to quash her idiosyncracies, as I did when younger). Maybe it’s related to the success of The Big Bang Theory, which makes nerdiness cool; maybe it’s the effects of menopause (after which you […]
You likely already know that my diet is 100% dairy-free (a vegan diet is, by default, free of dairy). Though I grew up with milk as the primary beverage in our house, had cottage cheese for breakfast, ate cheese-laden pizza for dinner and scooped ice cream for dessert, once I switched to a vegan diet, […]
