Recipe: Zucchini Cream Cheese Tart

Hello everyone,

I don’t know about you, but for me, it is a summer of squash! I’ve eaten more zucchini and yellow squash the past two months than I had in two years. Contributing to my massive increase in squash consumption is the fact that I planted a plethora of zucchini in my garden, and my parents brought me some beautiful vegetables from a relative’s garden in West Virginia.

I’ve also been eyeing the “just so happens to be vegan” puff pastry from Pepperidge Farms. I put two and two together and decided to put a vegan spin on a classic cream cheese tart. Admittedly, I had no idea what I was doing with the puff pastry, and it was nothing short of a miracle that this recipe worked out. It was quick, it was easy, and if I could do it, you can, too!

There is something so comforting about a flaky crust smothered in faux cream cheese and  olive oil lightly drizzled over zucchini with herbs. Ahh. This really is a perfect recipe for your next summer get together. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

Cheers & happy eating!

Jocelyn

Hello friends,

It seems like almost every weekend I feel the intense need to bake cookies or cupcakes, even when I probably shouldn’t. This was one of those weekends. Am I alone? I suspect not. What’s better on a snowy, cold day than a warm, fresh-baked treat? Nothing. Continue reading

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Cheers!

Vegan Choco Ginger Macadamia Nut Cookies

Hello friends!

One of my all-time favorite cookies is the traditional white chocolate macadamia cookie. Unfortunately, this is a very rare cookie to find made vegan. This is probably because vegan white chocolate chips are about as hard to find as unicorns. Tonight I opened my cupboards, took a look at what I had in stock, and decided to try a new spin on the macadamia nut cookie. The end result is a gooey, moist chocolate chip ginger macadamia nut cookie.

Review: Just Cookies

Hello friends,

I hope you’ve heard about Hampton Creek Foods, and I really hope you’ve already switched to using Just Mayo. It is hands down the best vegan “mayo” in the market. But that’s not what I want to talk about it. I want to review the company’s newest product – just Cookie Dough. I know this product began hitting shelves towards the end of 2014, but it just showed up at my local Whole Foods, and I couldn’t be more excited!
