Special Edition : Vegan Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

Special Edition : Vegan Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

One cupcake to rule them all! I won’t bore you with stories about how a certain portion of my life has been dedicated to searching out and locating ways to eat chocolate with chili pepper. They’re uninteresting stories about mixing soy chocolate ice cream with […]

The Betty Crocker Project : Ranch Dressing with A SPECIAL BONUS!

The Betty Crocker Project : Ranch Dressing with A SPECIAL BONUS!

I was never a big Ranch dressing lover before I went vegan. I didn’t grow up dipping my pizza or hot wings in it. There were no Ranch dressing fountains at parties I went to. To be fair, there are probably a few Ranch dressing […]

The Betty Crocker Project : Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Once upon a time in the little neighborhood of Ghent, I used to bake a lot of cupcakes. I baked dozens and dozens of cupcakes. I baked for birthdays and parties, slow Wednesday nights, whatever. I just really like to bake, and cupcakes are easy […]

The Betty Crocker Project : Spare Ribs with Three Different Glazes

The Betty Crocker Project : Spare Ribs with Three Different Glazes

When we took on the challenge of veganizing The Betty Crocker Cookbook, we knew there would be times when we’d need get creative. We’ve already mastered the Vegan Poached Egg and the Stuffed Crust Pizza, but there are still some recipes looming–menacing really–in the distance. […]

The Betty Crocker Project : Bacon Cheeseburger Hash

The Betty Crocker Project : Bacon Cheeseburger Hash

I recently read an article written by a woman who had been married for five years and worked in the wedding-planning industry. She started with a brief summary of their courtship. Of course, it had the arc of any good love story. There was the […]
