Vegan avocado mayonnaise

When I was a kid, I loved my mayonnaise. Loved it. I mean, I would actually lick the spoon when I was done adding a ton of it to my tuna. It's not so bad when you're an active kid (sort of), but when you are an adult with slow metabolism, licking the mayo spoon... Continue Reading →

Microwave Chocolate Cake

The other night, Mr. W had a hankering for some chocolate cake.  Chocolate cake and me do not get along.  Or rather, chocolate cake loves me so much it wants to stay on my thighs forever despite how many lunges I put them through.  So the idea of a whole chocolate cake in the house...

Thanksgiving Stuffing

Stuffing is one of the easiest things to make for Thanksgiving, and one of the easiest to embellish. Thanks to my mom’s creativity in the kitchen, I have never made a stuffing exactly like the package recipe, but instead add to it to make it my own and create an even tastier dish for Thanksgiving....
