Adventures in Eggplant Bacon

Sometimes you get a cold and sometimes a cold gets you. If you don’t know what I mean by that – I hope you never do. But yeah I think the stress of the book coming out next week, having a little baby and ya know life caught up with me. When you get sick like…

Vegan Beer & Cheddar Bread

So I’ve been on a baking kick lately. Maybe it’s because I know summer will be here soon and I want to use my oven as much as possible before the infamous heat dome lowers onto New York City. Maybe it’s because I love bread. I had this whole post planned for today about how…

The Betty Crocker Project: Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins
