Vegan Chocolate Layer Cake.

Chocolate Layer Cake is a dessert recipe that I think we can all agree on, yes? This vegan version uses my fluffy vegan chocolate buttercream frosting, and a bit of my fudge frosting in the center as well. This rich and super decadent dessert is perfect for a birthday, celebration or midnight-fridge-cake-snacking cravings. If you are not afraid of a little chocolate and vegan butter, press on to get my recipe. And do not forget a big fork!..


Bagel Pizzas, a la Lemon.

Bagel pizzas must be stopped. They must be stopped I am telling you. They are just too good. Too amazing. Too easy to make. Too tempting to devour once they are staring you in the face with their satiny marinara pizza sauce, glistening melty vegan cheese and crusty, oven-toasted bagel base. Too good. Too easy. Too much.

Bagel pizzas must be stopped.

Or not.

Sigh. OK. I give in. I give up. I will drape my arm dramatically over my forehead as you hand me a platter of bagel pizzas. Lets just call them dinner and be on with it. My Vegan Bagel Pizzas a la lemon coming up...

My Book Party! Celebrating Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen. {PHOTOS}

I am not a party planner. But I played one in real life .. for this amazing party. My Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen book party. I found myself so proud of my new cookbook, and grateful for my community of friends here in Los Angeles that I knew I wanted to throw a book party to celebrate.

Now the big question was: how does one do that?? Throw a book party?

Luckily, I had some advice, help and inspiration along the way and everything came together even more beautifully than I had imagined. So I am more than happy to share my book party photos with you guys!..
