Coconut Milk Fudge

Coconut Milk Fudge with Walnuts

I was invited to a vegan potluck this weekend and wanted to make a dessert along with a salad. I wanted to make some of my no bake brownies, but then found out there was a recall on the almond butter.

I had to come up with something quick and easy. I found a recipe from my friend Lauren for her raw-coconut-chocolate-fudge but didn’t have the ingredients, so I came up with my own fudge recipe. Continue reading “Coconut Milk Fudge” »

Cheese and Tomato Pide

Cheese and Tomato Pide

We love our pides! I have a variety of recipes for them on the blog, this one is simply made with tomatoes, cheese and peppers.

You can use what ever pepper you have on hand, you can also just make it with cheese. For this pide you will need Spanish or Chicago cheese found at Middle Eastern or Mediterranean stores, if you can’t get your hands on it you can use mozzarella (or bocconcini)  or a white cheese that is squeaky and salty, that is the best way to describe it.  Continue reading “Cheese and Tomato Pide” »
