Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream

Hello everyone,

Looking for a place to grab an iced soy latte, vegan-friendly lunch, or perhaps a sweet treat? Check out my updated list of my favorite vegan-friendly places around Northeast Ohio under Vegan Cleveland. Just added—Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream.

Mitchell's Homemade Ice CreamAh, summer. A time to relax, spend time with friends, and enjoy ice cream on a hot day. Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream serves up summer treats using only the best locally sourced organic ingredients. Plus, they generally have two vegan flavors, currently vegan salted caramel pecan and chocolate. Looking for a fruiter option? Mitchell’s also makes sorbet (lemon, mango, and raspberry) without dairy and it’s fat free!

I highly recommend getting a single scoop of the vegan salted caramel pecan on a sugar cone! The rich coconut milk flavored with homemade toasted pecan butter, caramelized brown sugar and sea salt is delicious! You’ll fool all your dairy loving friends with this sweet treat! Next time you’re in Northeast Ohio be sure to give this local ice cream parlor a try!

Cheers,

Jocelyn

Restaurant Review: Townhall, Vegan Brunch!

FullSizeRender

Hello everyone,

Imagine, it’s a Sunday morning. You’re hungry. You don’t want to get ready and stumble around your kitchen to prepare a meal. So what do you do? You put some pants on and goto brunch! If you’re in Cleveland, there is no shortage of amazing places to eat brunch — even if you’re vegan!

I recently went to brunch at Townhall on W. 25th St.for the first time. Townhall is a popular bar and restaurant in a ‘hip and up and coming’ area of town, on the same block as the historic West Side Market. Their menu is full of designated vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options and includes a variety of local ingredients. As an added bonus, the restaurant is in an old renovated warehouse space and is warm and welcoming with open brick walls and a cozy patio!

Recipe: Vegan Salted Sesame Cookies

Hello everyone,

A friend sent me a recipe for Salty Sesame and Dark Chocolate Chip cookies from Joy the Baker. It certainly wasn’t the easiest recipe to ‘veganize’ considering if called for quite a bit of butter and an egg, plus an extra egg yolk. However, it was worth the hassle!

These are the perfect cookies for anyone who likes things sweet and salty. They came out of the oven warm and chewy. Honestly, these had a consistency rarely found in vegan cookies. Plus, they taste even better! The sesame seeds add a unique twist on a salty chocolate chip cookie.

So here it goes, below is my highly modified version of the Salty Sesame and Dark Chocolate Chip cookies from Joy the Baker. Give them a try. Your tastebuds will thank you!

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.
