Pineapple Coconut Milk Cobbler

Pineapple Coconut Milk Cobbler (Vegan)

Pineapple Coconut Milk Cobbler is a simple and delicious dessert that goes together quickly, and bakes perfectly in the oven while you make the rest of your vegan meal on the stove top.  The inspiration for this cobbler is our easy nectarine cobbler and our canned fruit cobbler.  Neither of those recipes were vegan, so I decided to adapt the recipe to see how it would work without any animal products.  When I realized that I would be using coconut milk, I immediately thought of a pina colada, so I  chose a can of pineapple for my fruit. What will […]

Vegan garlic and herb butter

Vegan Garlic and Herb Butter

Vegan Garlic and Herb Butter was a necessity.  We love garlic, and we couldn’t enjoy pasta dishes or certain soups without a piece of garlic bread.  Technically, we could have eaten them, but we really like having garlic bread with our pasta dishes.  I mentioned in my previous post about vegan butter that once I had mastered vegan butter, it would be possible to make a compound garlic and herb butter that I could then use to make the garlic bread that all of us here at Patty Cake’s Pantry love. I had linked to my garlic Parmesan butter recipe, […]

Vegan Easy Blueberry Apple Crisp (Gluten Free)

This Vegan Easy Blueberry Apple Crisp is a re-make of one of my oldest dessert recipes.  I love to make my Easy Apple Crisp because it’s simple to prepare, and it’s a family favorite.  This recipe is very easy to modify, too.   I’ve already created a  gluten free version of this apple crisp for a friend with gluten intolerance.  That version also happens to be vegan.   Having this recipe By using different fruits, or mixing different fruits together, you can create an entirely different dessert using this same recipe.  I’ve used this recipe to create a Blueberry Pear Crumble […]

Coconut Oil Bark

Coconut Oil Bark

Coconut Oil Bark is a recipe that’s  part of a tale from the “Transform in to Wellness” journey  Do you want to hear the story?   Ready or not, here it comes!

Easy Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Easy Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

My Easy Apple Crisp recipe is very popular here at Patty Cake’s Pantry, and we eat it often.  I have a friend who can’t tolerate gluten, and we needed to bring a dessert to her for dinner.  I decided to see if I could modify my original Easy Apple Crisp to make  a gluten-free version.  It turns out that the modification was also pretty easy.  The recipe was a huge success,

Perfect Grilled Vegetables

Perfect Grilled Vegetables

Simple to make, grilled vegetables are loaded with the flavor of summer.  These vegetables are extremely versatile, and depending up on your choice of seasoning, they can be made to be the perfect accompaniment to a variety of meat entrees.   Of course, there is nothing quite as delicious as these grilled vegetables, so you’ll want to eat them by themselves, too. Since I was grilling pork chops coated with a Cajun spice rub, I opted for Cajun seasoning for these vegetables.  I tend to treat all of the vegetables basically the same, when seasoning a batch for dinner.  Only […]
