Vegan Gluten-free Black Bottom Cupcakes

Black Bottom Cupcakes {vegan, gf}

Brrr! I don’t recall being this cold in a long time! Winter is finally here, though it’s sunny still. I love how where we live, the seasons start slowly. Often it will be a full month into summer, autumn, winter or spring before the weather really sets in. What that means for today, is that…

Extra Nutty Vegan Fudge Brownies {gf}

Light is so incredibly important in photography. Not just any light, mind you. Not harsh, bright sunshine, not blue shadow, either. The right light – soft, natural, filtered light reigns supreme and is hard to come by, at least in my house. For several months, I’ve used a corner by the kitchen as my “studio”…

Vegan Apple and Banana Pancakes

Eggless Apple and Banana Pancakes {vegan}

All’s well that ends well. My son had been sick and only attended preschool two days instead of three. He got bitten on the first day back and came home early. On the last day, I had a class to teach and was very anxious. We talked about seasons and months of the year, and drank…

Then there are those still in the early throes of parenthood, where…

Cruelty-free Marshmallow (Wagon Wheel) Slice {gf}

It’s taken me a while to get my head to agree to doing this. Several months of being inspired by the Aquafaba (Vegan Meringue – Hits and Misses) group – a positive, encouraging band of vegan bakers who try, try and try again to experiment with creating not just meringues, but all sorts of vegan products using…

Easy 30-minute Choc Chip Cookie Bars {vegan, gf}

First up, I can’t lay claim to this recipe; at least not to the original. That belongs to another member of the ‘Aquafaba (Vegan Meringues – Hits and Misses)’ group on Facebook. She posted a photo of some very wholesome looking biscuits, but it was the mix of gluten-free flours that got me hooked. I…

Soda Pancakes with Roasted Balsamic Strawberries {vegan}

If food was a love language, pancakes would be mine. They are my ‘go-to’ meal on the weekend when I’m too tired/lazy to cook. They are also my son’s first request whenever I ask what he wants for dinner. We tend to provide a savoury option to begin with, and then we enjoy dessert! Both…
