Recipe: Vegan Zucchini Muffins and Zucchini Recipe Resource!

I love Zucchini, and it seems to be one of those garden veggies that simply thrive no matter where I’ve seen it grow around the Pacific Northwest. I prefer the delicate young ones for eating with pasta, or on the grill. Once they get bigger and tough skinned, the only way I like to eat […]

Recipe: Applesauce Cookies

By

After researching vegan cookies, I came up with this recipe. It is egg-less, and butter-less, but tastes light and is surprisingly soft. You can easily make these more crisp by baking longer. And, since it is so simple, it lends itself well to whatever additions you want. I have thought that crushed Walnuts, Pecans or […]

I found the initial recipe at myvegancookbook.com, but modified it to this one. […]
