Happy 90th, Gram

Happy 90th, Gram

For the 90th birthday of the grandmother of my best friend, I baked ambrosia macaroons. Gram loves coconut and I wanted to bake something special to celebrate her important birthday. She’s very special and I feel fortunate to be able to call her Gram and be a part of her family.

Vegan Broccoli Cream Soup

Vegan Broccoli Cream Soup

Unlike President George H.W. Bush, we love broccoli. During an unusually cold Southern California winter, I decided to try making a vegan broccoli soup. I turned out nicely and is a healthy contrast to the usual decadence of the holidays.

Vegan Cranberry Orange Bread

Vegan Cranberry Orange Bread

This recipe for Orange Cranberry bread is my first experiment with modifying a recipe to make it vegan. I think it turned out even better than the dairy and egg version. The chocolate was an addition suggested by my dear husband. It was an inspired idea that works well off the orange and cranberry.
