Super Easy Vegan (aquafaba) Mayonnaise

A great man once said, “We never buy what we can make.”  That great man was Alton Brown. I love mayonnaise.  I know there are a lot of people out there (eg. my sister) who do not agree with me, but I can always find a use for mayo.  It’s great on a sandwich, ideal…

Moving house (plus a “guest” recipe!)

So we are moving!  Moving is at the same time stressful and exciting.  There is something about a new place that bring a feeling a freshness.  Don’t worry, though.  The kids will find a way to make it un-fresh really quickly! Because we are moving, I’m taking a short break from posting recipes.  I just can’t…

Aquafaba

Enjoy Life!

Have you ever just been sitting around and suddenly you think, “I need some chocolate…”?  No?  Just me?   Hm….. weird. Anyway, I grew up in a house with chocolate.  I don’t mean sometimes we had S’mores, or that we have ice cream and with Hershey’s syrup in the summer times.  I mean, don’t get…

Lennox and Reese’s SunButter Cups

My son Reese can’t have peanut butter (or dairy, or eggs, or soy, or nuts, or……). But he can have these! Without question, my favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. In fact, any peanut butter based candy is going to top my list. Unfortunately, two of my kids are allergic to peanuts, so I…
