It does exist. I know, I'm a horribly mean blogger for posting another vegan ice cream recipe when many of you don't have ice cream machines and others are still freezing through a long, cold winter... but ohmigod its sooo freakin' tasty I can't help but scream about it. Plus its our 3rd wedding anniversary today so we're entitled to a little chocolate, right?

I didn't carefully measure when I made it, so you may need to adjust a little (esp. if you use a different syrup). I followed the Tofu Ice Cream recipe, adding a pinch of ground cinnamon (essential!) and about 3 tbsp vegan chocolate syrup

Recipe:Tofu Ice Cream


This basic recipe was developed by the chefs at Goodbaker Gourmet; I found it somewhere online and have been playing with it to make all sorts of flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, banana, cinnamon, strawberry and blueberry.



Combine all ingredients in a blender and whiz until smooth. Transfer mixture to an ice cream machine and allow the machine to run until ice cream has formed, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Mini Cupcakes

This weekend Scott & I were invited to a kick @$$ vegan pizza party. (If you have not yet tried Teese, you must!) I thought the party guests would like a sweet treat after all the delicious homemade pizza and I was right. These beauties disappeared in 15 minutes flat! Aren't they CUTE? We served them with tubs of vegan chocolate and vanilla icing.

The great thing about making these mini's (and letting people pick their frosting) is that most people got to enjoy several different cupcake combos! Double Chocolate, Vanilla-Vanilla, Chocolate with Vanilla Frosting, Vanilla with Chocolate... plus it made "transport" much easier! 

Vcon: Beanballs

I've made beanballs before but had forgotten about the recipe until I was reorganizng my pantry and noticed I had an insane amount of kidney beans on hand.

I omitted the oil called for in the recipe and baked my beanballs on a cookie sheet instead of frying them in oil. I also omitted the soy sauce and used a mock beef boullion cube instead for the "beefy" flavoring. The beanballs were good (especially once swimming in tomato-basil marinara) but don't hold a candle to Grammy's Meatless Balls!
