A Veritable Vegan Smorgasbord

Hi blog! It’s been a while since I updated, so I have a lot to share with some recipes coming soon. All vegan, all delicious. Enjoy the photos. Chamomile Cake: Advertisements

Plums, Pluots, Pie & Farewell to Yingst Ranch.

Last year, news broke that the beloved Yingst Ranch would be closing after the 2014 season. The news was a huge bummer, considering what a beautiful and wonderful farm Yingst was. They were a U-Pick operation in Littlerock, sorta out in the middle of…

All of the foods. All of them.

Aloha from Maui! I sit here looking out into some stormy weather, which has been making its presence known all week. It can’t get me down though, you know? Because Maui and it’s hard work being down when you’re here, no matter what the…

Throwback Thursday: Thanksgiving 2013.

Hello there. I meant to post about ol’ T-Gives last year, but never did. Highlights: Cheddar Quick Bread loaded with Cranberries, Pecans, Daiya. Then there was this masterpiece salad. I baked homemade ginger bread and subsequently turned most of the loaf into croutons. Add…

Catching up.

So many. So many treats do I have in store for here. But for now, some things I’ve been working on: Hawaiian Chantilly Cake.

Breadfruit Nachos.

The first time I laid eyes on breadfruit was when my friend and I were driving the road to Hana. After we grubbed on some Coconut Glen‘s vegan ice cream, we continued to drive until I saw a sign that said: lava tubes. I…

Huli-Huli Tempeh.

I’m happy. I’m off to Maui early next month and I simply cannot wait. Coconut bagels, fresh lilikoi, picking strawberries on the bright green Kula hillside, a long horseback ride through the jungle are filling my thoughts and dreams. It feels so good to…

Hey there, Pamplemousse: The One Where I went Grapefruit Picking in the Valley by Myself and then Made Cookies.

Thank goodness for Vegan Yack Attack. I had no idea Vegan MoFo (Vegan Month of Food) was approaching in September. I’m glad I know now as I’m headed to Maui September 2nd and now I have time to prepare some posts for when I’m…

A Mix of Things for the Blog that Time Forgot.

Greetings long lost blog. Did not intentionally take a month off, but summer is packed with busy. Good busy and work busy. Lots of farm trips for the the most exceptional produce one has ever tasted. Thrifting and brewery visits. Planning my next Maui…

Mango Lilikoi Sunshine Pie.

Sometimes this blogging escapes me. I’ve been having a lot of wonderful adventures lately and I want to share them. I still have so many Hawaiian recipes to share too. I guess I will get around to posting them all at some point. Once…

Possibly Persimmons. Possibly Persimmon Bread.

Persimmons. The first time I had one I bit into an unripe Hachiya persimmon. The tannins and my tongue did not agree. At the time, I was ignorant of the differences between our two main persimmons, the Fuyu and Hachiya. The Fuyu can be…

Yingst Ranch + Pear, Quince & Wild Blueberry Pie.

Back before I went to Hawaii I made one last farm trip. I wasn’t sure if we’d find the super secret persimmon farm (future post) I had heard about upon my return. So, what I’m saying is this could have my last CA farm…
