Easy Eggless Banana Bread

Easy Eggless Banana Bread

My goal was a simple one; make a gluten-free vegan banana bread that was straightforward, easy, something that my 7-year old would eat, and that looked and tasted like the banana bread I see in every local café.

Salted Caramel & Pretzel Cheesecake

Salted Caramel & Pretzel Cheesecake {vegan, GF}

It’s funny how this social isolation business can mess with your brain. I almost went mad last weekend. I just could not stand another minute with my beloved family!

Lemon Poppy seed Almond Cake {vegan, gf}

Vegan Cake Nirvana. I’ve reached it. I seriously thought my quest for the perfect citrus poppy seed cake was to be a never ending one. The key to success was so elusive, it was driving me mad. I caved at various points along the way, sharing a recipe that was ‘almost’ the one… There are…

Garlic Za’atar Irish Soda Bread {vegan, GF}

Ah, the smell of fresh, home baked bread! Is there anything quite like it? That irresistible scent wafting through the air, filling the nostrils with warmth and causing the mouth to drool in anticipation of a thick slice or two, smeared with peanut butter and jam. The memories tumble together of a time long past……
