Time to eat ice cream for breakfast! Next week it’s going to be over 100F in Paris. (That’s almost 38C for you celsius peeps.) That’s hot. As fond as I am of steel cut oats in the morning, sometimes you need something frozen to cool you down. And, unlike oats for example, today’s recipe can ...

vegan gluten free sesame cookies

Chewy, crispy, nutty… words that speak to my food-lovin’ soul. Yours too? Excellent. Today’s cookie recipe was born out of my constant craving to consume sesame seeds. I absolutely love sesame – it’s one of my top flavors of choice. Bubble tea? Sesame. Mochi? Sesame. If sesame is an option, I’m gettin’ it. I may ...

(Ask me ...

vegan gluten free sushi

Imagine you’re on a beach. Ocean breezes are tickling your hair, the sun is high, and you’re cozy in the shade with an iced lemonade and a plate of fresh, vibrant, crunchy and chewy, veggie-filled sushi rolls.
