It all started with Almost Instant Pumpkin Porridge the other day, and reveals itself today with these vegan and gluten-free Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Brownies. Next up are some amazing homemade […]

Granola-Topped Blueberry Pie Bars

  I’ve never really understood the expression, “easy as pie.” In the home of my childhood, it was more like “almost-unheard-of-plus-totally frustrating-and-usually-botched-results” as pie.  Although my mom was a superlative baker, the one thing she almost never made (and when she did, it wasn’t very good) was pie. Give her a cookie dough, and she […]

Marry Me Brownies*

*Just in case there’s any doubt, I meant that in the sense of, “These brownies will make him/her/you declare, “Marry Me!” and not in the sense of, “You will want to marry these brownies”–though weirder things have happened. [What’s that I see beside these squares of bliss? Could it be–?!!] Now, I know it may seem a […]

Ah, the sacrifices I make in the name of food blogging), I’ve finally developed a recipe for fudgy, dense and delectable brownies that are grain-free, gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan, stevia-sweetened and ACD-friendly. Decadence […]

Sneaky + Deceptive + Chef = Delicious

I find it fascinating how certain ideas make the rounds in the world of food, blogging or otherwise. I’ve mentioned before about how it galls me that Mrs. Jerry Seinfeld has an over-hyped, over-acclaimed, skyrocketed-to-bestseller-status cookbook in print, all because she thought to add some vegetable purees to existing recipes (Oh. And because she’s Jerry. Seinfeld’s. Wife. Right.).  No matter […]
