It’s Valentine’s Day weekend! Or wait, is it wrong to refer to an entire weekend by the holiday that only takes up one of its days? Probably. But, bear with me. Commercial though it may now be, Valentine’s Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the people that you love. At my office, we did […]

Summer Strawberry Sherbet with Lemon Zest – v, gf

Strawberry season is upon us! The Farmer’s Market has row upon row of beautiful red strawberries, and given that we’re in a stretch of hot weather, a frozen dessert seemed really very advisable.

Avocado Lime Ice Cream (vegan, gluten-free)

The flavours seem so summery, and since baking delicious summer zucchini and carrot cupcakes that also contained avocados, I’ve been reawakened to the joys and possibilities of turning avocados into tasty desserts.

Heavenly Vegan Chocolate Chip, Coconut, and Zucchini Muffins

Baking with coconut milk feels so luxurious to me, like the equivalent of taking a bath in milk like Cleopatra – if the milk were non-dairy, of course, and bathing in it weren’t so wasteful and excessive. But you get my point. There is something decadent about coconut milk. It’s the velvet of the non-dairy milks, […]
