Vegan Lemon Curd

Lemon curd has always been something of an enigma to me. It is tart yet sweet. It is light yet rich. It is complex yet simple.

Whipped Coconut Cream

For those on a dairy-free diet, whipping cream of coconut to use instead of whipped dairy cream is a naturally great tasting idea.

My favorite dessert in Thai and Vietnamese restaurants is sticky rice with mango. It also happens to be one of the few Asian dishes I cook at home. I used a short-grained brown sweet rice for the dish pictured. Although I used a different brand (I bought mine at a natural foods store), I noticed […]

Snow Cream or Snow Ice Cream

While growing up in the Mid-Ohio Valley, I heard my mother tell of making ice cream out of snow (snow cream) when she was a child in rural West Virginia far from any industries. It was never something that she (or I) ever considered doing in our city or farm homes closer to the manufacturing […]
