BANANAS N’ NUTSCAKES

it’s been a while since i baked anything other than emergency microwave brownies and muddy buddies (which aren’t baked at all, actually), so today i decided to make something yum. enter banana cupcakes with vanilla frosting topped with wet walnuts. they’re sweet and moist and purdy good if i do say so myself.

GINGER GLAZED MATCHA MUFFINS

i don’t love green tea, but for some reason i’ve really wanted to bake with matcha green tea powder for a long time. when i took my first bite of these muffins they were surprisingly tea-y, and by the second bite i was hooked. they’re very subtle and faintly sweet with a nice leafy green color. nummmmm.

CHARRED CHICKPEA POPPERS

i tried a few things with the fresh chickpeas, and my favorite by far was charring them. i didn’t really have high expectations for them, but they were great. they’re even more fun to eat than edamame because the pods are filled mostly with air and they pop as you squeeze the chickpea out.

CHOCOLATE SALTED ALMOND COOKIES

these cookies were inspired by an especially yummy chocolate bar i once had. they’d be REALLY good with chocolate chips (or chopped up dark chocolate ritter sport, my choco of choice) but it was 10pm when i made these and i didn’t have any. these really did the trick though, and they’re especially good fresh out of the oven.

BEER BATTERED FRIED PICKLES, DUUUUUUDE

before today, i had only had fried pickles once. i’m not sure how that happened, considering pickles and fried things are two of my favorite food groups. frying batters are rarely vegan in restaurants, so i don’t eat battered things out, but i can’t believe it’s taken me so long to make my own version of this majestic invention.

FRIED CHICKPEAS ARE THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD

seriously. i’ve always loved chickpeas, but my life was changed forever when i had my first fried one. they’re crispy and crunchy and nutty and ridiculously delicious. i eat them mostly in salads, but the leftovers make a really addicting snack.

WHITE BEAN KALE SOUP

i could eat this soup in a hundred degrees i love it so much. i can’t take full credit for it though.. i used martha stewart’s 15 minute white bean soup as a base and added kale and altered the amounts of things a little to balance out the added volume. it’s great for a quick, light meal and it is SO GOOD.

CHEWY PIGNIOLI SUGAR COOKIES

my first attempt at pignioli cookies was a miserable failure and i have not touched almond paste since, but once i made almond milk i needed something to do with the pulp-turned-almond meal. these cookies are basically an almond flavored sugar cookie covered in icing and pine nuts.. not really a pignioli cookie, but who cares? they’re crunchy and chewy at the same time and i think they’re pretty freaking tasty.
