Lemon Poppyseed Scones

I’m pretty amused that a good portion of my posts are food-related, since I initially set out to make this a mostly-craft blog. But cooking is edible crafting, and lately it seems to be the only creative thing I do, given that my hands are swollen and stiff in my last month of pregnancy. (See […]

Awesome vegan, soy-free pumpkin pie!

I love pie! Despite the fact that I’ve relaxed my diet a bit during pregnancy and I’m now much more omnivorous, all my baking is still vegan. I don’t like eggs and I don’t drink milk, so why have them in the house just for baking? It’s too much trouble!! So this Thanksgiving, I wanted […]

Scones Aplenty

Aside from having a delicious vegan tofu scramble that I can order right off the menu with no modifications, Berkeley’s Sconehenge always (and not surprisingly) makes me crave scones. The last time I ate there, right after Halloween, I finally resolved that I would make some vegan scones, and right when we got back from […]
