Berry Tarts with Almond Crust

Every vegan and their mom has a recipe for a berry tart. Because vegan desserts have to be fruit and plant-based, right? Nope. By the way, I learned about this crust recipe from my mother, so there. She made it in December 2012 for a holiday desserts presentation I did for Lawrence Library.

My mom made the same crust again as berry mini-pies in for Fourth of July in 2013. These are my fresh berry tarts.

Lemon Tiramisu with Limoncello

Mmm, this dessert made me realise how much I miss bread pudding-type desserts! I haven’t made any “pain perdu” situations in a while because I have rarely had leftover baked goods, if TC has had any say.

Father-in-law gave me two small bottles of Limoncello and said to make something. TC presented it to me as an Iron Chef Challenge. Evaluating what we had on hand, I quickly made a batch of vanilla cupcakes and set some cashews to soaking. Lemon Tiramisu it would be! Read more →

Zucchini Banana Coconut Paleo Bread

The second paleo recipe of late…what is this madness?! One of my neighbors gave me an entire bag of Nutiva coconut flour, and this was the first thing I made with it. The Wednesday farmers market is usually a little thin on goods, but one vendor offers an “all you can fit” bag for $10. I used zucchini in this recipe from the farmers market.

National Chocolate Chip Day: Peanut Butter Blondies

National Chocolate Chip Day is another one of those made-up holidays that must have been made just for bloggers. Actually, I’m pretty sure it’s been around since before the Internet since most sites about it seem to reference the original chocolate chip cookie. NCCD is 15 May, and my post is a day late. I went to see Mad Max: Fury Road on Thursday (the other day I usually blog) and didn’t decide what to bake for NCCD until yesterday afternoon.

There was even talk of muffins | Pistachio Strawberry Muffins

TC kept quoting this line from The Venture Bros. when I said I would make muffins on Saturday and ended up making them on Sunday.

Sesame Bundt Cake & Mass Effect Joke

The Biotics from Mass Effect 2 say, “Take your probiotics!”

TC and I couldn’t find our usual non-dairy probiotics at Sprouts this week, and he’s been playing through Mass Effect 1 again, hence this picture. Today’s recipe has nothing to do with Mass Effect, unless I said it was some ancient Asari cake recipe. LOL.
