Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls!

I love the Thug Kitchen peanut butter buckeyes, but they contain quite a bit of sugar and a small amount of coconut oil. Now as I’ve mentioned a few times, I watch Nutritionfacts videos¬†frequently enough to know how bad sugar is for you, and saturated fat isn’t much better. However, as sugary as they are, […]

Vegan Fruit Jumbles

Every Christmas since we’ve been together (over ten years now!), James has made his mother’s famous fruit jumbles. The cookies are a big favourite of Em’s, so James always makes her a big box to take home. Once, several years ago, James was stricken to learn that Em’s boyfriend, Spencer, had eaten almost the entire […]

Caravaggio Plum Loaf

Aaaaand….the aquafaba craze continues at Downton Cabin. After experimenting with veggie burgers all morning, I had about a cup of aquafaba from the black beans, so I decided to try another dessert. I found a recipe for aquafaba chocolate mousse here, and thought I’d use it to experiment with little chocolate mousse bites, and they […]

Sweet Aquafaba Whipped Cream (and Ice Cream)!!

So I’ve continued to experiment with aquafaba every time I make anything with beans (which is, like, every day) and have had various failures and successes. The other day,¬† friends, both of whom are vegetarian and one of whom is gluten-free, joined us for dinner. Cloud Nine, the gluten-free bakery near us, where we always […]
