As a kid, every year my brother and I would offer up cookies as a ceremonial sacrifice to Santa, so that he would gift us handsomely that Christmas. Now that I’m looking back on it, I’m kinda mad my Dad made us a lay out a whole box of cookies, only for him to keep…

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…

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.

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.

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…
