How to Successfully Veganize Boxed Brownies (And Make Your Vegan Friend Happy)

That's right. You'd think it'd be easy, but more often than not you end up with an oily pile of brownie goo instead of delicious fudgey brownies. You'd think making something from a box wouldn't be that hard, but think again! I recently discovered this trick after...

Quicker Pierogies Using Wonton Wrappers!

Vegan MoFo Day #10! Back into the realm of Polish food, we have one of my favorites: Pierogies. Dudes, when I was in Krakow this year there were literally 24 HOUR PIEROGIE PLACES. Heaven! The idea of a pierogie is simple, you have a basic flour dough wrapper, with...

Guest Post: Let’s Jam! Brian’s Lemon Vanilla Peach Jam

Now that the last few days of summer are slipping away, it's time for some autumn-goodness. My good friend Brian has a jam-tastic recipe for you, the pictures of which have me drooling. He's going to walk you through the process of making your own lemon vanilla peach...

Brownie Cheesecake With Coffee Frosting

Vegan MoFo Day #15! It was my friend and former flatmate from Prague Andrea's birthday today and her and her boyfriend Vojtech were visiting us in Berlin for a long weekend. Yesterday Vojtech and I schemed a secret birthday cake plan every time Andrea went to the...

Savory Mochi or Rice Flour Gnocchi

Vegan MoFo Day #11! Yes, you read that right. Savory mochi (rice flour gnocchi). We're talking garlic, onions, peppers and olive oil, kids. Get ready. Some of you may remember my foray (read: obsession) with the rice gnocchi I could buy in Prague. I was really...

Vegan Truffles

If you thought truffles were difficult to make, think again. I was also under the same impression until I found this recipe off of Food.com. Now truffles fall under the "really impressive looking but actually hella easy" category in my repertoire. The hardest part is...

Fetteh: Yogurt & Chickpea Dish (Veganized)

Vegan MoFo Day #10! Halfway there! This is a recipe I came across on The Hummus Blog and have been meaning to veganize and try forever! Thanks MoFo for the motivation! On one hand it sounds totally weird, chickpeas and yogurt, on the other the photo looked soooo good....

A Good Cuppa Chai

Vegan MoFo Day #16! I had the best chai ever yesterday morning. Previously I'd just throw a chai tea bag in some hot water with milk and call it done, but taking the extra few minutes to simmer it really makes it amazing! I'd love to mix my own chai, but I'm not that...

Sweet Potato Coconut Garlic Mash

This happened by accident this morning. I'm experimenting with eating more gluten free things, or rather, trying to drag myself out of the spaghetti-filled haze I got stuck in since winter due to lack of time and brain space! I'm not usually a big fan of sweet potato,...

Sourdough Bagels

Okay, so this recipe isn't really my own making as I followed this one over at the Fresh Loaf exactly, but as a pretty amateur bread-baker a lot of the stuff on that post is over my head, so I thought I'd summarize it here with my pictures. For more details, you...

TEA GIVEAWAY and a Review of Teavivre teas (open to all countries)!

At my flat, we have over 40 boxes of tea. It's an addiction really, but my flatmate and I are both obsessed. Thus, when Alison from the lovely TeaVivre got in touch with me about testing out some teas and even offered to host a giveaway for any of you readers out...

Vegan Ramen: 3 Ways

Yes, this is a post about ramen. Don't judge me. I figure since I've been eating so much of it, I may as well write a blog post about it. Some of it is homemade, so I'm not ashamed! The one in the picture above came from a packet though, are you shocked?! Plus,...
