Guacamole from Oaxaca

Guacamole from Oaxaca by John Spottiswood

This is an easy to make, flavorful, and slightly spicy guacamole. Previously I never blended the onion, garlic and cilantro into a puree as this calls for, and I think it does a better job of distributing the flavors evenly. It also reduces the amount of fine mincing required. Even if you've got a trusted guacamole recipe, you…

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. This is a keeper. You need to put this on your site!” At the risk of appearing unashamedly self-congratulatory, I have to agree with my discerning…

Jamaican "Beef" Patties

Jamaican "Beef" Patties by Kiki Thompson

Coming from a Jamaican background, many times my palate craves the blended flavors of curry. So I veganized one of my favorite treats, Jamaican Beef Patties. These are kind of similar to Mexican empinadas, but spicy I was kind of skeptical at first, but you can not tell the difference…it’s all about the seasoning when it comes down…

Cinnamon Swirl Cheesecake

Cinnamon Swirl Cheesecake by Kiki Thompson

I had tested many vegan cheesecakes and came really close to the dairy form, but this is it! The flavoring and everything is just perfect! It's decadent. It's probably not the best option when it comes to staying healthy, but it's nice to know that I have an option when I get those cravings for cheesecake :)
