Cranberry Orange Pistachio Biscotti

The third biscotti recipe in the trilogy with Triple Chocolate Vegan Biscotti and Simple Vegan Almond Biscotti is my favorite: a cranberry orange pistachio biscotti. I love the orange flavor the zest adds to the dough. The cranberries are chewy and sweet and the pistachios add rich flavor and a little saltiness. These are a […]

Simple Vegan Almond Biscotti

I’m just thrilled to have “remade” this simple vegan almond biscotti recipe. Years ago, I made almond biscotti and variations on a regular basis. I always marveled at how easy it was to make and swore I would make it regularly to keep on hand. Fast forward to 20 years later and I was not […]

Flavor adding garlic […]

This recipe from Connoisseurus Veg is perfect just the way Alissa has written it! […]

Pumpkin Donuts & Spiced Glaze

Homemade cake donuts are so good for weekend breakfasts, and these pumpkin donuts and spiced glaze are some of the best! At my house we make a dozen donuts for the two of us, then we can have them for a few days. No leaving the house early just to find the donut shop is […]
