Just Because You're Vegan, Doesn't Mean You Can't Use a Springform Pan

(5) Comments | Posted December 18, 2008 | 2:40 PM

Pumpkin cheesecake is one of my favorites, so I saved it for last. I make it every year and it seemed like the ultimate vegan challenge with a dairy product right there in the name.

First, I had to research if it was even possible to make vegan cream cheese...but...

The Vegan Holiday Cookie Bandwagon

(0) Comments | Posted December 17, 2008 | 10:40 PM

With as much as I bake throughout the year, I do not typically make a lot of cookies for the holidays. Sure, I'll pull together a pumpkin cheesecake for an office potluck or whip up a chocolate pecan tart for a friend's end-of-the-year get-together, but I am generally immune to...

The "I'm Vegan" and "I'm Not" Chocolate Pecan Tart

(2) Comments | Posted December 16, 2008 | 12:02 PM

One of my favorite desserts for the holidays is a chocolate and coconut pecan tart.

(3) Comments | Posted December 15, 2008 | 5:53 PM

After reading some of my posts, a friend said he pictured the Benny Hill theme song playing in the background as I bake. I admit it's not a totally outlandish statement. I, however, have always felt a much stronger kinship with Bridget Jones. I realize this makes the...

(4) Comments | Posted December 10, 2008 | 3:30 PM

I like to bake. And even though I've been doing it for awhile and have presumably built up a certain level of expertise, things don't always go as planned. (I once had enough material to compile my greatest hits: Lisa's Top Ten Baking Crises.)

I'm afraid such was the...

Like many things in my life, the story of my college education is somewhat complicated. I started out at UCLA because I was eligible for in-state tuition...but LA wasn't a great fit for me and when I went to England my junior year, I fell in love with the country...

Maybe Obama Wouldn't Notice There's No Eggs or Cream?

(6) Comments | Posted November 26, 2008 | 11:26 PM

I recently made my first sweet potato pie for a friend's birthday (and also as a subtle nod to Obama's reported declaration that it is his favorite pie).

After Turkey or Tofurkey for Dinner, Try a Vegan Pumpkin Pie

(28) Comments | Posted November 26, 2008 | 9:48 AM

The first time I tried my hand at vegan baking, I made a sweet potato pie for a friend's birthday. It was a disaster -- not because of the pie itself, but rather because I was in the midst of preparing for the 2007 APC Crisco National Pie Championships...
