First Prize Vegan Chocolate Brownies

‘Hitch Codes’ editorial by V Carre, via Pinterest Hi everyone. Long time no see! Goddamn. So… what’s up with the hiatus? The last several months have been a roller coaster but I am back on track and back to Kitchen Rebellion. Skip the next paragraph if you kinda don’t care and just want to see…

Rustic Boysenberry Lemon Cheesecake (Vegan and Gluten Free!)

  Summer is on its way in my part of the world, and the warmer weather has me craving chilled treats. One of the beautiful, fresh, sunny days we have had recently inspired me to make my first cheesecake of the season. Mmmm… cheesecake season. Come time for dessert, I tend to err on the…

Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am Banana Cake

  For the last six months I have had my head down studying Patternmaking at Fashion Tech. Today we graduated! This is the course that I had to leave, because of my health foibles, four years ago, so it has been a poignant day. I am proud of myself and excited for the present and…

Pecan Pancakes & Shortcut Boysenberry Sauce

Food photography by Lissa Davidson; header image via Pinterest   Do pecans make everything better? My vote is YES! I made this recipe when I had a craving for pancakes with a little somethin’ extra and it has become my go to recipe. Refrigerating the batter for 20 minutes might test your patience, but it…

Apricot & Berry Vegan Mini Crumbles

Art by Paul X. Johnson, via Supersonic Electronic   Strange times in our neck of the woods lately. I was on holiday in New Plymouth when the 6.3 earthquake gave Wellington a big shake last week – thankfully we arrived home to a house that was just as we left it. No cracks in the…

Berrylicious Vegan Mini-Cheesecakes

I have been meaning to make a cashew-based vegan cheesecake for a while now and let me tell you, I can’t believe it took so long. These things are damn incredible. Beware, you might end up…

Sweet & Simple Vegan Raspberry Muffins

Art by Brian Ewing via Ant Baena   I love how easy these muffins are to throw together; I made a batch while prepping a quick sauce for tonight’s dinner (tofu-chili enchiladas – damn good, and resting happily in my belly as I type). Raspberries are definitely my go-to berry, but you might want to…

Chocolate-Pecan Brownie Loaf

Kielo S/S13 via VFiles   This recipe is a kind of Frankenstein creation, part loaf, part brownie. I can’t decide whether it is a brownie-style loaf or a loaf-style brownie. Either way, it tastes damn good! Chocolately, chewy, moist and delicious, it is perfect with a cup of Earl Grey, or underneath a big dollop…

Caramel Cashew Cupcakes

Art via Ffffound |   There is something about the combination of cashews and caramel that is just so, so right. This recipe has a bunch of steps (it’s really a three-recipes-in-one deal, after all) but everything is quick and easy to whip up. It won’t take nearly as long as you might think, and…
