Every Christmas when I was a kid, I would help my mom make stuffed mushrooms. When they’re freshly baked, the soft juicy mushroom blends with the crunchy cheesy topping to make a party in your mouth. Here’s a vegan version we made this year for our holiday festivities.
We’re not Jewish, but we still love to make latkes when Hanukkah time comes around. The salty potato and onion mixed with sweet applesauce is a special treat that keeps us wanting more.
If you’ve ever wanted to try a Canadian-American-style holiday meal that doesn’t have turkey or ham in it, here’s what we’re cooking up this holiday season. I’d also love to hear about any traditions your family follows, to help spread the joy of a plant-based holiday.
When holidays like New Year’s Eve or Easter roll around, we brew up a homemade chocolate fondue to dip all kinds of yummy things in.
Chocolate almond bark is a winter holiday treat in our family, but we figured why not make it all year round? It’s a wonderful mid-morning pick-me-up.
Inspired by a fun DisneyWorld vacation this past summer, we wanted to re-create a meal we ate at the Norway pavilion of Epcot Center: swedish meatballs, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, and lingonberry sauce (or cranberry works too).

My mom makes a chocolate log cake every year for Christmas. This year we had our own smaller family get-together with the kids so I thought it would be fun to make our own chocolate log.

The texture mellows and gets less crunchy over time, so they’re actually just right a day or two after baking them. Feel free to freeze leftovers, if there are any! This is partContinue reading “Linzer Cookies (aka Jam-Jams): #93 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”
For a fun holiday treat, we made two versions of these decadent truffles: one with eggnog for the kiddos, and one with Irish cream liqueur for the adultos. 🙂 It’s actually very easy to make these, you just need a few hours to let the mixture set in the fridge. Hope you enjoy! This isContinue reading “Eggnog and Irish Cream Truffles: #89 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”
We decided to try our hand at cooking a traditional holiday meal from scratch – roasting our own chicken, making our own stuffing, mashing our own potatoes, steaming green beans, the whole bit. My husband even whipped up an amazing onion gravy, which I’ll have to ask him about. We cooked so much food that itContinue reading “DIY Roast Chicken: #79 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”
