Rich & Nostalgic Vegan Eggnog made with Soy Cream

I have quite an endearing history with eggnog. For one, it’s the first alcoholic drink I’ve ever tried and every year when November rolls around, I can’t get enough of this stuff. Talk about starting a sugar and alcohol problem at a young age. Pass the half gallon, pour me a glass, hand over the…

Apple Bourbon Breakfast Bread (vegan & gluten-free)

Two of our biggest hits last year were our Cornless Bread and Cornless Cake, both of which mimic the pleasantly gritty texture of cornbread without any of the corn. The secret is sorghum flour, a whole grain flour that has a similar texture to fine cornmeal, making it a unique ingredient for those who try…

Mom’s Sweet Potato Casserole w/ Sweet Vanilla Crushed Pineapple Topping (vegan)

In our last post I mentioned that we don’t know what’s in store for November, which is still 100% true. Most months we have all the recipes finished by the first week – yeah, not this month. Originally, we were going to make a bunch of Thanksgiving style recipes but… what if we still wanna…

Rice Krispy Tombstones (vegan & gf)

It’s our last party favor before HALLOWEEN! I’ll neglect the fact that it’s the end of the weekend and you’ve probably had all your Halloween parties already… Ehem, anyways, you can still make these to get into the spirit on Halloween day, or make ’em for little ones running around your neighborhood, or you know,…

Petite Charcoal Crepe Cake with Matcha Whipped Cream and Smooth Chocolate Ganache (vegan)

This crepe cake is one of the most tedious things I’ve ever made. Side note: this crepe cake is one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever made. Third side note: if you thought making a couple crepes was hard, try making 15 crepes. Final side note: if you thought one crepe tasted good, try…

Vegan Cookies & Creme Ube Cheesecake

Despite it’s flashy name and color, this cheesecake is a classic. It’s filling is rich, creamy, and sweet with the perfect amount of tang while the crust is crunchy, chocolate-y, and well, cookies and cream-y. The filling’s base is cashews, vegan sour cream, and boiled ube – a purple yam prominent in Filipino cooking. Don’t…

Crisp & Flakey Puff Pastry Beignets (vegan)

Disclaimer: these aren’t really beignets. They’re beignet-like things. Things that are equally as delicious – albeit different – and wwwaaayyy easier to make than actual beignets, which are essentially yeast-raised donuts. These “beignets” are made by cutting pre-made puff pastry dough into 1 ½ x 2 ½ inch rectangles, deep frying them until they’re airy & lightly…

Eerie Pumpkin Streusel Muffins (vegan & sugar-free)

These muffins have all the qualities of a white girl’s favorite Fall product: pumpkin, sugar, and something that looks like it came out of a Starbucks pastry case. Who cares though? We’re on board! These muffins are fluffy, moist, hearty, and not too sweet, making them perfect for a quick breakfast or on-the-go snack! If…

Bourbon Chocolate Crusted Purple Sweet Potato Galette (vegan)

This is one of those dishes that dances on the boundaries of savory & sweet. Like, is it dessert or dinner? Sure there’s chocolate, marshmallows, and caramel, but the crust is only lightly sweetened, the filling has hearty sweet potato slices, and the caramel is salted! Either way, its a dinner dessert thing perfectly suited…

Toasted Rice Horchata w/ Salted Caramel Drizzle & Coconut Charcoal Whipped Cream (vegan & gf)

Horchata is probably my favorite daytime drink. Why? Because it’s creamy, sweet, laced with cinnamon, and no one judges you for drinking it at 3pm (although I won’t look at you sideways if you want to drink a milkshake midday either). If you’ve never tasted it – prepare your tastebuds for a life changing event.…

World’s Best Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls (vegan)

Cinnamon rolls are quite possibly my favorite baked good of all time – sorry brownies. Soft layers of cultured dough, sweet cinnamon brown sugar rolled into a spiral, and an aroma better than any candle. Because it’s my favorite baked good however, I’m VERY picky about my cinnamon rolls, meaning four out of five I…

Vegan & Sugar-Free English Bread Pudding

Good bread pudding is like good french toast. It’s a careful balance of thirsty bread, rich custard, and just the right amount of cooking. Like all simple things, nailing good bread pudding requires a solid understanding of how each element interacts with each other. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Chocolate Marble Tart with Toasted Hazelnut Date Crust (vegan, gluten-free, lectin-free)

Little words can describe this tart. It’s one of those recipes that was carefully concocted in my mind over the course of two months, each piece awaiting to be assembled into its rightful spot. We even got a pan specifically for this dessert – now that’s dedication to the cause. And it all started out with…

Rich & Sweet Cassava Cake – Banh Khoai Mi (Plant Paradox-friendly, sugar-free, and vegan)

Who woulda thought that you could make a sweet cake using an underground tuber that looks like a root vegetable from Mars? Certainly not me, but some smart person in Southeast Asia did, and for that, I’m thankful. This cake contains no flour – except for a touch of starch – no added oil, no…

Good Ol’ Southern Raspberry Sweet Tea (sweetened with Swerve!)

Did you guys have a go-to diner spot growing up? You know, the one that was a little sketchy, had the cheapest food with the largest servings, was open 24/7, and had really nice, older waitresses who probably smoked a lot in their youth and went to church every Sunday? I know we did, and…

Easy Vegan & Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins (lectin-limited & mostly sugar-free)

‘Hol up, let’s pause our barbecue train for an early Summer sweet, ya fig? Oh wait, that’s a late summer treat. I berry even caught my mistake! We thought you might like something to do with all those in-season, antioxidant powerhouses, other than popping them in your mouth by the handful (guilty).   These blueberry…

Mango & Lemon Poppy Seed Upside Down Cakes (vegan, gluten-free, lectin-limited, & mostly sugar-free)

It’s been too long since our last dessert recipe – by now we’re fiending for something sweet. The idea for this recipe came from Pineapple Upside Down Cakes, which are fluffy – oftentimes cornmeal based – cakes, that are cooked atop of a buttery, glazed pineapples. When you flip the cake out of its pan, the…

Vegan Strawberry Shortcakes (lectin-free, gluten-free & mostly sugar-free)

You guys, Summer is quickly approaching. You know what that means, right? Berries, peaches, sunshine, extra smog, and did I mention berries? Berries are probably my favorite fruit to keep around (aside from avocados) as they’re loaded with antioxidants, not loaded with sugar, they’re darn versatile, and they taste friggin’ delicious with chocolate. As you…

Moist Coffee Infused Cake w/ Spiced Chai Frosting & Dark Chocolate Drizzle (Plant Paradox-friendly, vegan, lectin-free, sugar-free, grain-free, gluten-free)

When I think of grand desserts, I think of cake. Something about those layers of creamy frosting sandwiched between layers of fluffy cake, decorated with other edible delights like chocolate, more frosting, whipped cream, more frosting, and… well, you get where I’m going. To add to my infatuation, cakes/cupcakes are one of the few pastries…

Plant Paradox-Friendly Coconut Cream Pie (sugar-free, lectin-free, vegan, keto & paleo)

Classic coconut cream pie, made for everyone. A few weeks ago I put up a poll on Instagram asking what kind of pies you guys would like to see us make. There was a plethora of options, but it turns out what you guys want to shovel into your mouth is: coconut cream pie, chocolate…

Sea Salt & White Chocolate Glazed Cookies (vegan, lectin-free & sugar-free)

Baking is really fun… when it goes right. And when you’re making recipes from scratch without basing them off other existing recipes, things don’t always go right. That’s 10 times the case with cookies. You guys, I don’t know what it is. Why are vegan, gluten-free & sugar-free cookies such a hassle to make? All…

Keto-Vegan White Chocolate (sugar-free, gluten-free, & Plant Paradox-friendly)

White Chocolate is kind of that one food that’s forbidden by every single diet ever. It’s high in fat, it’s full of dairy, it’s mostly sugar, blah blah blah. You know how it goes. Well I say: fuck that. We can make anything fit our lifestyle – white chocolate is no exception. Thus, it’s my…

Fluffy Vanilla Funfetti Cupcakes (mostly sugar-free, vegan & gluten-free)

What birthday cake did you beg your mom to make you for your birthday? For me, it was carrot cake, so this post obviously isn’t about me. Nope, this is about Kim. Well, indirectly, I’m not going to talk about Kim the whole time, I’m going to talk about cupcakes. If you can’t tell already…

10-Minute Avocado Smoothie Bowl (sugar-free, lectin-free & vegan)

For the past two years, avocado smoothies have been one of my go-to breakfast & post-workout foods, as they’re creamy like a milkshake, nutritionally packed (depending on what you add, of course), and loaded with healthy fats, which fulfills every part of my body – not just my stomach. Having gone through changes in dietary…

Matcha Scones with White Chocolate Frosting & Pistachios (vegan, gluten-free, & sugar-free)

It’s time to get green y’all – and I ain’t talkin’ bout bud. I’m talkin’ bout matcha and pistachios, because it’s St. Paddy’s Day, and heck, we can all use a little bit more green in our lives (and diets). Honestly, I thought making scones would be hard. I guess because I see them so…

Sugar-Free Red Velvet Cupcakes with Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting (grain-free & Plant-Paradox friendly)

Red velvet cupcakes are the epitome of a perfect dessert. They’re decadent, pretty to look at (that’s half the point of confections, right?), and they’re personally portioned, so it’s even better if they’re jumbo sized. Sadly though, cupcakes are often disposed to boxed cake-mixes or in-store purchases, both of which can be sickeningly sweet and…

Homemade Coconut Yogurt Parfait (grain-free, vegan, & Plant Paradox Friendly)

Little sings a cute breakfast for two like yogurt parfait. Bbuuttt, with the dairy, grains, and sugar, it’s not quite the healthiest Valentine’s breakfast, which is why we’ve made some fitting altercations to make this parfait a breakfast of champions. The first dilemma to deal with is yogurt, which is best solved by using coconut…
