Vegan Home Cookin’ with Gillian: Popsicles

5 May, 2015  |  by Gillian Kreft

When the days get longer and the smell of fresh cut grass is in the air, the only thing I can seem to think about is popsicles. Here in Colorado, our weather comes and goes, but lately it’s been consistently above 50 and we had a couple days last week that were in the 80s. That meant I got to pull out all of my sundresses and resurrect my favorite popsicle recipes from last summer to share with you guys! I love experimenting…

Meatless Monday with Vegan Girlfriend: Caesar Salad Dressing

3 Mar, 2015  |  by Guest Post

Here’s another guest post from our pals at Vegan Girlfriend. This one is from Megan and you can see the original post here. I worked a brief stunt in appetizer and dessert preparation at Swiss Chalet when I was in high school. That being said, I couldn’t touch a Caesar salad for years afterwards. Now I’m absolutely hooked to the vegan version! Yeah, I don’t understand it either. Ingredients… 1 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight + drained) 1/2 cup cold…

Vegan Home Cookin’ with Gillian: Oatmeal Cream Pies

3 Mar, 2015  |  by Gillian Kreft

If you’re a vegan, you have probably heard of the holy mecca that is Native Foods. If you haven’t, it’s an all-vegan chain restaurant that serves up some great vegan food that can fool even the most devoted of meat eaters. The restaurant has a dessert aptly named the oatmeal cream pie: two cookies, about the size of your face, filled with twice as much cream as one person could consume in a sitting. It’s their most popular dessert, proven by…

This post comes to us from Jenny Roger, the mom of a fan. We’re always astonished when people get in touch to get involved and we really loved Jenny’s take on family holiday foods.  This past year I have been able to meet, talk to, and hear presentations by some of North America’s top celebrity chefs such as Michael Smith, Vikram Vij, Chuck Hughes, Rob Gentile, Mario Batali, and Giada de Laurentiis. These chefs are responsible for and have access…

Boozy Little Black Book: Pumpkin Shandy

9 Sep, 2014  |  by FGFSadmin

Contributor Vanessa Kunderman is back with her weekly tips on making your own alcoholic bevvies. In her third piece she’ll teach you how to make a seasonal drink that’ll keep you warm all fall long.  I’m one of the many people who fall victim to needing everything to be pumpkin flavoured as soon as fall begins. To celebrate the first week of autumn I poured myself a pumpkin shandy… and lit pumpkin spice candles, made pumpkin soup and wore a pumpkin-hued scarf…

Boozy Little Black Book: Cherry Noir Collins

9 Sep, 2014  |  by Guest Post

Contributor Vanessa Kunderman is back with her weekly tips on making your own alcoholic bevvies. Here’s her second installment, this time on a fruity little ombre drink.  I admit it, this recipe calls for those gloriously plump black cherries, but a good old-fashioned red maraschino will do the job. After all, the cherries will be drunk, and they won’t know if they’re black or red. Ms. Collins is bright on the palate, but she totally revolves around the creamy rich taste of…

She’s a design and writing freelancer, with a financial column targeted at Millenials, and her latest fantasy and sci-fi novel will be out this fall. This is the first installment in her Boozy Little Black Book, a series of delicious and easy drink recipes.  There is nothing more satisfying than drinking cute bevvies on the patio. And with summer making a beeline for fall, it’s time to test as many new…
