Vegan Chocolate Mousse: Avocado vs Tofu

I have been playing around with avocado based chocolate mousse for a few months.  It’s rich and smooth, but I found myself adding more and more chocolate, vanilla, and cocoa powder because I didn’t love that little lingering background flavor.  My taste testers didn’t even notice, and a few drops of orange oil or mintContinue reading “Vegan Chocolate Mousse: Avocado vs Tofu”

A simple one that’s worth a little work this week.  I’ve got red on the brain for the next nutrition article and the strawberries were just too beautiful at the store.  Homemade fruit roll ups are going to be more work than store bought, but healthier too and you can even make them with justContinue reading “Fruit Roll Ups – Strawberry Chia”

Papusa: stuffed corn flour flatbreads

These are Salvadorian packages of deliciousness.  A savory filling, generally including beans, is flattened inside of a corn flour exterior that’s a bit thicker and fluffier than a normal corn tortilla.  The preparation and cooking of a papusa creates a softer wrap than the dense dough around a tamale.  The outside gets toasty with aContinue reading “Papusa: stuffed corn flour flatbreads”

Granola: a Breakfast Staple

I love granola, I eat it or oatmeal probably 4 or 5 times a week!  It’s also one of the first things I ever learned to make, my mother taught me.  I have branched out a bit since then though and been amazed at the variety of recipes out there.  This recipe from Pick UpContinue reading “Granola: a Breakfast Staple”
