I have to be honest and tell you that I never actually had buckeye balls (a.k.a. buckeye candy, a.k.a. buckeyes) growing up. I had heard they were essentially peanut butter and chocolate—the very best dessert combination in my eyes. Continue reading
Annnnnd we’re back. I had to follow up that b-a-n-a-n-a-s vegan caramel puff corn recipe with something a little closer to my vibe: easy roasted broccoli. It gets perfectly charred and fresh, drizzled with lemon juice and zest, just like my roasted Brussels sprouts. This is another veggie recipe you’ll have to resist eating straight off the pan!
Happy April Fools’ Day! In honor of today, I thought I’d share a bunch of silly behind-the-scenes photos of my favorite fool: my golden retriever, Gordon.

I kind of hate that this vegan caramel puff corn is in my cupboard right now. Mind you, it’s because it’s absolutely delicious and I have no self control around regular puff corn, so when it’s encased in butterscotch-y goodness it’s all over.
Sauce makes everything better, doesn’t it? Hollandaise sauce was probably my first foray into sauces when I was a kid. My mom would make it on occasion for eggs Benedict and I just loved it. It is rich and buttery and lemony-bright.
You know what’s a great thing to serve to your friends that are gluten-free and/or vegetarian? Mexican food. Like this super flavorful Sofritas Skillet Dip! You know the vegan option Chipotle added to its menu in recent years? Well, this is my riff on it in dip form.
Brussels sprouts are one of those foods that kids announce they hate before they’ve ever tried them because lots of people just think they’re gross. I was one of those kids, but I’ve since had the courage to taste them and dang! Was I wrong. The best way to get people excited to eat them? Make these roasted Brussels sprouts and serve with flavorful vegan honey-sriracha aioli for dipping!
