Allergy-Friendly Vegan Apple Cinnamon & Raisin Muffins

Allergy-Friendly Vegan Apple Cinnamon & Raisin Muffins by The Blender Girl

I just don't think you can go wrong with the combination of apples, cinnamon and raisins. In fact, if you are baking egg-free sweet breads, cakes and muffins, apples are one of your best culinary friends. They help to bind and add texture and flavor that is not too overpowering (you could use an extra pinch of cinnamon if you wanted…

Mika’s Vegan Seaweed and Cucumber Salad

Mika’s Vegan Seaweed and Cucumber Salad by The Blender Girl

I post this simple little Japanese seaweed salad in honor of my friend Mika. Mika is a phenomenal cook, with a natural flare for flavors.

Creamy Vegan Potato Salad by The Blender Girl

I recently shared this potato salad with my friends Kris, Michelle, Emily, Nicole, and my father-in-law, Bob; and the reaction was unanimous–“Oh Wow! I could eat this salad every day.

Allergy-Friendly Vegan Lemon Shortbread

Allergy-Friendly Vegan Lemon Shortbread by The Blender Girl

So, when I set about creating an allergy-friendly shortbread recipe that my niece could indulge in this Christmas, it was quite a frustrating endeavor. Thankfully, there are some wonderful vegan spreads on the market that work quite well. My favorites are the Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks and Nuttelax spread. Both work well in…

This home-made cranberry sauce can be made in minutes; it is ridiculously easy; and absolutely scrumptious. Once you make this, you will never be caught dead buying a jar of pre-made cranberry sauce again. I have always loved cranberry sauce, and this blend is a winner. I have deliberately kept it very basic. I just love the…

Gluten Free Blender Pumpkin Pie

Gluten Free Blender Pumpkin Pie by The Blender Girl

As with my pecan pie and lemon pie; this pie is crustless. Those of you who have a penchant for pumpkin pies with decadent crusts - my profound apologies. You could try pouring this blend into a prepared crust in order to satisfy your culinary sensibilities. Beyond that - my suggestion would be to look elsewhere at some of the other…
