A great topping for our weekly or so vegan meals, also tasty right out of the jar. I may or may not sneak a spoonful while walking from the table back to the fridge.

Fancy Toddler Crackers

A fancier take on the simple toddler cracker recipe, with just a couple bonus ingredients that you do. They do have a slightly nicer flavour, but are not quite as simple, just due to how many ingredients involved, so I don’t make them quite as often.

Vegan Maccy Cheese

A hybrid of Isa Chandra Moskovitz’s Broccoli Mac & Cheese and America’s Test Kitchen’s Vegan Nacho Cheese Dip. What I’ve done here is basically double the amount of sauce by adding a medium potato blended past recognition, and some coconut oil.

My hommage to the Pressed Halloumi sandwhich from a little take away that I think is now long gone, in Tenleytown DC.

Miso Nuts

A craving and some detective work lead to this recipe. Sweet, salty, bright with citrus and ginger, but with depth from miso and sesame oil. A moreish snack that feels healthy enough.

Easy to work with dough that yields crisp, crunchy cookies. This is my mom’s adaptation of McCall’s cook book’s “Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies”. They’re the Christmas cookies I grew up with.
