One of my favorite traditions each year is to make a King Cake to celebrate Mardi Gras. The King Cake tradition came originally from medieval France and Spain. Later, it was celebrated in Louisiana, where Creoles celebrated the king’s ball with a fancy cake in which a bean had been placed randomly inside. According to […]

This recipe is a bit fussy but I thought I would post it anyway. The idea was to create a cheaper and easier brioche using margarine (instead of Earth Balance which I think has a weird taste, or homemade vegan butter). The problem is that margarine does not firm up in the fridge the way […]

This recipe is a mashup of the two yogurt recipes Miyoko Schinner has given us in Artisan Vegan Cheese and Homemade Vegan Pantry.
