Potstickers

Dinner 01/08

Potstickers


Liz tried out a new dough recipe (which still needs some tweaks) furthering her life-long ambition to be able to hang out with women of all cultures making stuffed dough products.

Stir-Fry with Tofu Three Ways

Dinner 01/04

Stir-Fry with Tofu Three Ways

Dessert 01/01

Pomegranate Cake


Happy New Year!

(it's a pumpkin layer cake with a vanilla and pomegranate liqueur frosting and topped with pomegranate seeds, the original recipe can be found in "The Boozy Baker" by Lucy Baker -- we used the usual vegan substitutes and flax eggs.)
