Zucchini muffins

My favorite vegan zucchini muffins. My community garden is in full production and every other day or so I can harvest 3-4 good sized zucchinis.

Chickpea-flour pancakes with spinach

The kitchen gods are not with me today. I started my Sunday-morning cooking with making mozzarella, which ended up as oily blob in my saucepan. I've made it many times using the same recipe but today it just didn't come together. Additionally, my oven seemed to have gone bonkers. I was preheating the oven in... Continue Reading →
