Dia’s Gluten Free & Vegan Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Dia's Vegan Super Duper Chocolate CookiesThese chocolate cookies turned out fantastic and quite large! I even feel making them vegan makes them taste better than my usual cookies. These aren’t fat free by any means, so prepare for an evening of overindulgence and bake away!

Vegan Banana and Chocolate Chip MuffinsLast night I baked my first set of vegan muffins. That’s right eggless muffins, I thought they would just crumble apart, but they turned out to be the perfect consistency and bound well. They tasted delicious, and it is hard to taste the difference between these and my old muffin recipe.

Mini Naan PizzasThis dish is not only healthy, but completely vegetarian. It could even be vegan if you substitute the cheeses to vegan cheeses. I will give you all of the information if you would like to do this.
These cuties are absolutely delicious and can be made for a party or for a romantic dinner for two. The naan bread gives a nice peppery taste, and added with the right topping, this can be truly exceptional!

Spaghetti with Chickpea Bolognese

Spaghetti with Chickpea BologneseMy mom was telling me yesterday how my dad would make me buttered spaghetti with chickpeas mixed through when I was little, and she told me that I used to love chickpeas. I can’t remember any of this, and I thought I only started eating chickpeas in 2004. That’s what happens when you have brain surgery after brain surgery I guess.

Anyway, I decided to make this dish to see if it would jog any memories–it didn’t, but it tasted great!
