LIV-Cheddar Cheese

When I saw the recipe at Loving It Vegan, I had to try it. My husband likes to have vegan cheese around in the house, but we’ve been out of it for a while. I’m not a huge fan of store-bought cheese (I’m a strong believer that homemade is always better!), and I thought I […]

Orange Melon Buns

I was at a newly opened Mexican bakery the other day, and I had a Concha for the first time in my life. As soon as I saw it displayed at the shop, I remembered the melon buns. (They are, however, quire different. The top of the concha is softer and almost melts in your […]

Country Autumn Muffins

Last weekend I made muffins because… I got Baker’s Field‘s flour! Baker’s Field is a local bakers that bake bread AND mill flour for other bakers. When I first tried their bread at Fig and Farro, a vegetarian restaurant, I absolutely loved it. Then I quickly found out that they sell their bread at selected […]

Piled High Breakfast Sandwich

When it comes to the sandwich, I’m all for “the higher, the better”. My husband and I used to like to get the sausage breakfast sandwich in the skyway. It was delicious. I’m not a huge fan of “fake meat”, but I liked their sandwich because their vegan sausage was house-made. So when I found […]

King Roll

Doesn’t my King (mushroom) Roll look good? I really love everything about king mushrooms. Its firm texture is so unique and substantial that it can easily take the leading role. I’ve never tried king mushrooms with mayo together, but it was so good. Homemade vegan mayo is really a game changer. First I cut the […]

Matcha Marble Bread

This was my first attempt to make this type of marble bread. You make a separate Matcha “sheet” first, and then you roll it with regular bread dough to create the marble pattern. This was before going into the oven. Just out of the oven. I was so happy to see the beautiful marbles, because […]

Almond Sticks with Double Icing

I did not know how much I liked almonds until my recent trip to Portland. This Almond Ring at Sweetpea Baking Company was one of the best pastries I’ve ever had, and I went to the bakery three times during the three days we had in Portland! My Almond Sticks were created with the inspiration […]

Moroccan Eggplant & Cucumber Salad Pitas: MAGAZINE vs. I Vol.1

This is an ultimate one plate dinner, if you ask me. Warm homemade rosemary pita bread just out of the oven, served with Moroccan spiced eggplant and tempeh ragu and cool cucumber-mint salad. The idea came from a magazine. My mother-in-law always has a stack of magazines for me to take home whenever I visit […]

Mom’s Pullman Bread

It’s been a while since last time I baked pullman bread. Last weekend I was in the mood for a good toast and decided to make a loaf. I only use my mom’s recipe for pullman bread; well, I have veganized it, quite successfully. When I bought this pan, I thought it was big enough […]

Farmers Market Strawberry Toast

This is what I’d like to see on my dining table when I wake up on weekends. Well, unfortunately this does not magically appear, so I do have to do some errands first. First, go to a local bakery for freshly baked crusty bread. Next, go to the farmers market. These strawberries I found at […]
