Tofu “cheese”cake?

Banana coconut tofu cheesecakeA long time ago, I made a delicious tofu “cheese”cake that was “almost vegan”. I hated explaining that it was “almost vegan” because it had contained chocolate. I think that recipe isn’t even posted on here at all — it was way before Umami & Me’s time! But ever since then, I have been on a mission to make a completely vegan tofu cheesecake and I think I have finally created it. And not to mention this one is not only vegan, but it is also gluten-free AND (for the most part) sugar-free as well! Oh. My. God.

I would like to introduce to you my banana coconut tofu “cheese”cake.

It’s never too late for pumpkin pie.

Raw pumpkin and kaya pieYes, I’m aware that it’s nearly mid-March but that has never stopped me from making pumpkin pie! But this time, I tried to put a healthier twist on it and made it a no-bake raw pumpkin and kaya pie.

Quiche is not just for breakfast.

Corn, bacon and onion quicheAHHH. I’M FINALLY CAUGHT UP IN BREAKING BAD. And Flickr stopped being annoying! What does that mean for you? That means new blog posts, yay!

And since I recently made a post on frittatas, I thought it would only be fair if I made an entry on quiche as well…a corn, bacon and onion quiche. Oh baby.

Raw pie?

Summer berry pie with raw crustWell, almost. I cheated a little…but it’s possible!

I’ve been wanting to do a raw for ages but just never got around to actually doing it. I was finally inspired to do it when I bought a lb of raw hazelnuts and got my bi-weekly shipment of fresh blueberries from my friend G. It was time — time to make a summer berry pie.

I’M BACK!!!

Almond butter honey tartsI’M BACK FROM VACATION!!! And seriously so behind on my posts. Can’t wait to gush all about my vacation in Korea and the Philippines. Let me just say that I am so inspired to make my own versions of my favourite dishes in each country. I most certainly ate very well when I was there (5lbs heavier now…some people suggest that I have eaten both South Korea and the Philippines whole!) and I cannot WAIT to cook some dishes from my own heritage and my favourite spicy country. Stoked!

In the meantime, the next few days will be some older posts that I didn’t get a chance to finish while I was away. First up? Almond butter honey tarts.

Party pleasers.

Mini chive and bacon quicheWe had another family BBQ over this past weekend as my brother and sister-in-law and my super cute nephew were in town. Of course, a family party was in order. With the gorgeous weather, sangria, and BBQ, I couldn’t have asked for a better set up! And this time I wasn’t bringing dessert!!! I decided to bring some mini chive and bacon quiches.

Je suis une pizza.

Stinging nettle pesto, kale, feta and free range egg pizza
Anyone remember that song from elementary school!? We used to sing that song in French class, alternating in both French and English back when I was a little kid. Oh, how that seems so long ago…

Well, the reason that song popped up in my head was because I was in the mood to make pizza today! And these pizzas were not only delicious but also very simple to make. I’ll teach you how to make easy rustic pizzas from scratch in a couple of flavours – stinging nettle pesto, kale, garlic, feta, and free range egg as well as tomato sauce, caramelized onion, goat’s cheese, and Italian flat leaf parsley. Fun little pizza pies to kick off spring with!
