Recipe: Homemade Pita Bread

Hello everyone!dsc_0432.jpg

Who doesn’t love bread? I know we all feel like Oprah in that commercial, “I Love Bread. I. LOVE. BREAD!”

While we enjoy the carb-filled goodness, many of us don’t love making bread. It can be time consuming. It can be frustrating. But, my partner and I have been slowly been perfecting a recipe for our favorite kind of bread—pita bread!

Is it worth making pita at home? Absolutely. Store-bought pita is often several days old and simply doesn’t taste as good as hot out of the oven bread. Warm, toasty home-baked pita is worth the effort. It puffs up perfectly for ‘pocket pita’ sandwiches and pairs great with your favorite hummus.

This pita bread recipe produces a nutty,  rich flavor along with a light, airy consistency. Once you taste it, you won’t be buying pita bread at the store again. …  Okay, at least not when you have the time to make your own.

What are you waiting for? Give it a shot!

Cheers & happy cooking!

Recipe: Vegan Homemade Pasta Dough

lasagna_2Hello everyone,

Over the holidays, my partner and I did a lot of binge watching. You can relate, right? One of our new favorite videos is Pasta Grannies on YouTube.

The premise is simple. A British woman goes around recording Italian grannies making pasta. So simple, yet so entirely addictive to watch!

I don’t have any memories of my grandparents making pasta from scratch from my childhood, but my mom does. She told me all about how her childhood Sundays were a full day of rolling out gnocchi and simmering sauce. I suppose watching Pasta Grannies is comforting and helps me feel more connected to my Italian side. Plus, I was happily surprised that many of the pasta recipes they used were vegan.

Vegan in Vienna

DSC_0718.JPG

Hello fellow travelers,

In December, I was lucky enough to head to Vienna, Austria for a few days. I was so excited to see the beautiful, old architecture and landscapes. But what about vegan food? After all, Vienna is the land of the sachertorte cake and schnitzel. I was pleasantly surprised by a wealth of vegan options almost everywhere I went and  a solid number of vegetarian/ vegan-specific restaurants. Below is my brief round up of the fantastic vegan food I tasted during my trip and some mouth watering photos, too!

Enjoy, fellow vegan travelers!

First Savings of 2017: Almond Breeze, $5 off produce, & more!

Hello everyone and happy weekend!

I’m working on a  lot of new vegan-friendly dinner ideas for the next few days. But for now, I put together a round up of vegan savings from my favorite rebate savings apps and manufacturer coupons.

I recently added a new savings app to my usual routine. BevRAGE is an alcohol-only rebate app. It’s interesting because there are savings for specific brands, but also $1 back on “any” bottle of different varieties of liquor. You can get $2.00 automatically if you sign up with my referral code “KNVOUKFS.”

I also wanted to alert you to a new year promo from Ebates. If you sign up for Ebates and use it to make an online purchase by 3/31/17, you’ll get a $10 new member bonus! I know, I know. Ebates can seem a little weird, but it works and it’s not a scam. I’ve earned over $110 for making purchases I was already planning on.

Okay, so for the first time in 2017, check out the best coupons and rebates to help you save a few dollars during your weekend shopping.

Recipe: Vegan Pumpkin Roll

fullsizerender-copy-2Hello friends!

My dad has a bit of a sweet tooth. The one dessert that his mom constantly had around the house for the holidays was a fresh, homemade pumpkin roll (and pies and cookies and all that good stuff, too). But let’s not get distracted, I’m here to talk about pumpkin roll.

I also have a strong love for all things pumpkin flavored, and I don’t believe that these baked goods should be stuck in the month of November. No, they should be enjoyed all-year long. Continue reading “Recipe: Vegan Pumpkin Roll”

Recipe: The Best Vegan Lasagna

fullsizerender_2Hello friends!

I’m Italian so the holiday season means something special for me and my family – PASTA – and lots of it! Every winter I look forward to carb-loading on delicious Italian staples that remind me of my childhood.  This year we opted for my roasted garlic vegan lasagna, aka the best damn vegan lasagna. I hesitate to say that, but it’s meatless, it’s dairy free, and it will fool any omnivore.

I know, I know. Lasagna can be a lot of work. I mean there are layers. There is prep work. And there is a lot of time in the oven. But I promise you, for this recipe, it is all worth it. Plus, if you make extra servings, lasagna keeps well – some might even prefer it as leftovers! I added a few time saving, multi-tasking steps below, but this recipe certainly isn’t for a quick week night meal. Why not give it a try for your next special occasion? You won’t regret it!

Cheers!

Jocelyn
