Classic German Apple Cake with Almonds

I’m so glad I made this classic German apple cake with almonds, a.k.a. Apfelkuchen mit Mandeln. It makes a nice pastry for breakfast, or a lovely dessert cake with coffee. The cake is dense, so it can be sliced in small wedges when serving guests. The vanilla cake has additional flavoring from lemon zest, adding […]

Puffed Brown Rice Cereal Treats

These puffed brown rice cereal treats are a slightly healthier alternative to Halloween candy. Even though my diet was healthy before becoming vegan, we always bought a bag of Halloween candy for us each year. This year we didn’t want to go off the deep end, so we’ve tried to think of reasonable snacks that […]

Reduced Sugar Blueberry Peach Crisp

I’ve cut the sugar in half in this reduced sugar blueberry peach crisp recipe! Each serving now contains 1-1/4 tablespoon of sugar per serving, which is plenty! The crisp is still a nice, sweet dessert. You’ll actually get some nutrition from the fruits and oats, too. I’m sure that other fruits can be used with […]

Chocolate Chip Vegan Ice Cream

This original chocolate chip vegan ice cream recipe tastes like old-fashioned dairy ice cream. It has a smooth and rich flavor. Your non-vegan friends and family won’t even know it’s dairy-free. Make it in an ice cream maker and you can eat it soft serve style. Or freeze it for an extra five minutes and […]
