The New Vegan: Gluten-free Orange Polenta Cake Recipe

A few years back I shared a recipe from Aine Carlin’s first cookbook, Keep It Vegan and remarked that had our cookbooks gone to highschool together, they wouldn’t have run in the same crowd, but they’d probably meet and become friends later in life....

The Plantpower Way: Strawberry Mint Cacao Cheesecake

Rich Roll and Julie Piatt are pretty cool. He’s an entertainment attorney-turned vegan endurance athlete, motivational speaker and plant-based nutrition advocate, and she’s a plant-based chef, healer, musician and yogi. Together, they are two people who...

Boston Hardcore Pie – Happy Birthday CM Punk!

Natalie’s note: Digging this one out of the archives in honor of Pie Day! The other day (October 26, to be exact,) was my friend Phil’s birthday. Most of the world knows him has the lovable jerk CM Punk, harasser of bosses and The Best in the World. I know...

Food Puncher: Vegan Carrot Cake Recipe Review

El Kabong Whoopie Pies

One of the most popular recipes in my book so far has been my Honky Tonk French Toast. I used the combo of peanut butter and banana typically named for a certain swivel-hipped singer and gave it the ass-kicking capabilities of the Elvis-impersonating pro-wrestler you...

Fruit Punch Twinkies + New Shirts!

A few weeks ago, inspired by my favorite treat from Bombshell Bake Shop, I whipped up a batch of Fruit Punch Twinkies. Now, KT’s treats are vegan, and made from scratch, but my version was about as white trash as it gets. After I posted this photo I got so many...

Redrum Velvet Cupcakes

It’s January 20th, do you know where your New Year’s resolutions are? In honor of the Overlook Hotel’s perpetual haunted New Year’s party in The Shining, I’ve put together an alcohol-fused sugar bomb that’s sure to cure even the most murderous case of...

Cowboy Cupcakes for Cool Kids

I’ll try not to get weepy when I tell you that I’ve baked for my friend Hillary’s son Bishop every year on his birthday since his very first party. Aside from baking all of Teno’s birthday cakes from scratch, it’s one of my rare little...
