The Betty Crocker Project : Burger & Veggie Packet

The Betty Crocker Project : Burger & Veggie Packet

Man – I hate this picture but I love this recipe. So simple – like barely any dishes and super good. Some might think we are drifting away from BBQ season but they forget we are skipping into tailgate party season*. One of the things […]

The Betty Crocker Project : New York Cheesecake

The Betty Crocker Project : New York Cheesecake

I grew up with New York Cheesecake. Big, thick, virtually crust-less slices of dreamy creamy cheesecake. I could never finish a slice alone, and suspect they were always secretly intended to share. I’ve always had these romantic ideas of this dream date: two people splitting […]

The Betty Crocker Project : The Pink Lemonade Cupcake

The Betty Crocker Project : The Pink Lemonade Cupcake

So, if you’re flipping through your copy of Betty’s Big Red, you aren’t going to find these. They’re kinda an invention of sorts that I pieced together using 3 adapted Betty recipes. I made them for our dear friend Sarah’s birthday, and might have had […]

The Betty Crocker Project : Sloppy Joels

The Betty Crocker Project : Sloppy Joels

Just like brownies, every vegan has their favorite sloppy joe recipe. Over the years, I’ve had some very tasty vegan sloppy joes made with everything from TVP to Jackfruit. While I wasn’t too in love with the eggplant version (Amanda, if you’re reading this, I’m […]

The Betty Crocker Project – Season Finale : Potato Salad and other BBQ & Potluck Ideas

The Betty Crocker Project – Season Finale : Potato Salad and other BBQ & Potluck Ideas

Summer is wrapping up, and this weekend maybe the last time we light up the grill or pull out the picnic table until next spring. Of course, in Virginia we’re suppose to be on the lookout for Hurricane Earl, so we’ll see how these summer […]

The Betty Crocker Project : Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

The Betty Crocker Project : Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

This weekend, we went to see the all-star overdose The Expendables. We’re, friends right? So let’s be honest here. This movie made me feel old. It was like seeing all the great old action movies in some kind of Cocoon kaleidoscope–with more tattoos and stabbing […]
