Fooduzzi’s Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I declare this to be THE best gluten-free vegan cookie recipe. And to be sure my claim was true I tested the recipe three times in the last two weeks 😉 It feels pretty much no-fail, and to make things even easier we tried it as a bar cookie recipe and it was fantastic. We…

There is just one problem with this granola, and that is keeping it on hand because it’s just so delicious! The good news –  making a double batch is no extra effort.

Here’s my take on this yummy mushroom soup that appeared in a New York Times recent fall soup feature.

Could it have been the unusual streak of grey, watery skies in Austin, the cans of cannellini beans stacked in my pantry or my anticipation of a loosely planned Saturday with plenty of time for play in the kitchen? Not really sure – but whatever the…
