Sometimes you develop a recipe idea from old ingredients you forgot were in the pantry. Last year, towards the end of winter, I found bags of Dandies Pumpkin Vegan Marshmallows in the clearance bin. Never one to turn down a sale, I bought several, gave a couple away, and promptly forgot about it until I… Continue reading Primetime Snack: Cannabis-Infused (or Not!) Vegan Popcorn Balls
It is the final week of Vegan MoFo! Just like last Wednesday, this is another feature celebrating the Vegan Month of Food, and this week, the theme is travel. It was certainly difficult to nail down exactly what to explore with this recipe - should we travel to the Mediterranean with a delicious mezzo platter,… Continue reading Vegan MoFo Week 4: Coconut Coffee Freeze!
Once upon a time, I had a website before this one. To be fully honest, I had several websites. My parents even let me purchase a domain in middle school; it was called PlanetNica.net.
