Recipe: Raw Vegan Blueberry Muffin Bites

I bet you never in a million years expected to see the words “raw vegan” on this site. Bake and Destroy – a celebration of refined sugars and white flour. Have I gone health vegan on you? Are overflowing mason jar smoothies just around the corner?...

Smith & Daughters Cookbook: Sopa Seca Peruvian Pasta Bake Recipe

I received an advanced copy of the highly anticipated Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (That Happens To Be Vegan) and, as a combo chubby vegan and bibliophile, have been drooling over the gorgeous photos and black-edges pages of this hardcover cookbook ever since....

Recipe: Nacho Chee-zee Toasted Quinoa Casserole

In the Midwest we call ’em casseroles, other parts of the country know them as “hot dish.” No matter what you call it, the concept of a handful of nutritious ingredients, smothered in some kind of sauce, and baked until bubbling hot is universally...

Vegan Tamales Unwrapped: Red Chile Jackfruit Tamales

Vegan tamales are a hug your mouth gives your belly. Anyone who’s ever attempted to make them at home knows this isn’t a dish to be taken lightly – and if you make tamales, you do it from a place of love. So I was super stoked to have the opportunity...

Vegan Bowl Attack! Loaded Potato Breakfast Bowl Recipe

Duuuuuude I love Jackie Sobon. She’s the phenomenal photographer and blogger behind one of my longtime, very most favorite food blogs, Vegan Yack Attack. I am beyond stoked that she’s put her recipe developing and photography skills into this amazing book...

The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur: Lemon Cornmeal Cookies

In many ways, Kelly Peloza and I are opposites – she is a patient food stylist and talented photographer, and on social media she is thoughtful and reserved, not feeling the need to Instagram every vegan nacho she has ever eaten, or punching out epic Facebook...

Bake and Destroy the East Coast

Between June 4 and June 11, Tony and I will be celebrating ten years of unholy matrimony (we were married on 6/6/06) by leaving our beloved Chicago to tool around New York and Philly for a week. I travel to New York pretty often on official I Heart Keenwah business,...

Friday the 13th Slasher Smores Cupcakes

It’s Friday the 13th, y’all! Tonight I plan on cuddling up in front of the TV with a cup of cocoa and a cupcake and relaxing to the sweet crackle-crackle sound of campers being cremated alive in their own sleeping bags. Ah yes, the horrors of summer camp,...
