Sorghum Popcorn

Have you ever tried popping sorghum? It is amazing! Like corn, sorghum grain has moisture locked inside it so it pops when heated in a dry skillet with oil. Sorghum popcorn is much healthier than corn, it's easier to digest, and is loaded with nutrients. Popped sorghum looks like tiny bonsai popcorn. It's so cute. I'd popped amaranth before, but I'd never popped sorghum until I read Kim Lutz's Ancient Grains cookbook. Kim is a well known food allergy mommy blogger, and author of Super…

Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

This mushroom stroganoff will blow your mind! Yep, it's a big statement, but I stand by it. The mushroom stroganoff I created for my first book, The Blender Girl was epic, and I have received thousands of emails from many of you raving about it. But, this incantation may be better.... The secret? The Massel beef-flavored broth. Nobody can believe this broth is gluten-free, vegan (dairy-free and egg-free), kosher, and low in carbs and salt. It tastes just like homemade beef broth.…

Dairy-Free Iced Coffee

Javaholics, this is your lucky day! Many of you living a dairy-free lifestyle have been writing to me for a very long time begging for a vegan iced coffee recipe. I've been reluctant to post a dairy-free iced coffee recipe on the site as I'm not a coffee drinker, so I thought there was no way I could offer up a respectable iced coffee recipe that would satisfy discerning coffee aficionados. But, then I thought, I cook with coffee all the time, and create awesome coffee-flavored…

Tropical Smoothie Bowl

For those of you who've been emailing or tweeting, posting on instagram and facebook, and asking me at events to post more smoothie bowls, this delicious tropical mango smoothie bowl is for you! I love smoothie bowls because they're more filling with the toppings, and you get that crunchy textural element that many people miss when drinking a smoothie for breakfast. This smoothie bowl is super easy to throw together, and has sweet, zesty, and tangy notes from the orange, mango,…

Strawberry Bell Pepper Lemonade

Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely holiday season, and are ready for an amazing new year. Scott and I have been having an amazing time in Australia, and enjoying the hot weather and sunshine before we head back to L.A. We've been making a lot of fruit-flavored lemonades for our summer picnics, barbecues, and outside dinner parties with friends. This strawberry bell pepper lemonade was a huge hit this summer, and I had to share it with you. This lemonade is a staple in our house…

No-Bake Chocolate Espresso Torte

It's only fitting that the last post of 2016 be a chocolate cake! And, not just any chocolate cake...an epic, super-easy, make-you-weak-at-the-knees chocolate cake. You can't get much easier than this cake. Just grind the crust ingredients in a food processor and press them into a springform tin, throw the filling ingredients into your blender and blast on high until smooth and creamy, freeze until solid, and then devour. I've made this cake three times during the holiday season, and my…
