Vegan Sour Cream

Posted on Updated on

When you’re vegan, the creamy texture is always a challenge. Luckily, there are secret ingredients hiding in plain sight that will make this a whole lot easier. ūüôā Let’s get started!


First, we’ll need a blender. Then,

  • 1 package tofu (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2+ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4+ teaspoon garlic powder
  • sea salt to taste

Just 3 steps:

  1. Blenderize all ingredients!
  2. Taste, and adjust seasonings as needed.
  3. Enjoy!

Just like real sour cream, this is great in sauces and burritos, as well as desserts and baked goods. ūüôā

Aunt H’s Corn Casserole

Posted on

This is such an easy recipe, it’s a perfect side dish for holidays or just a big family meal.

What you will need:

3 cans cream corn      salt      pepper      1 sleeve of saltine crackers      2 quart baking dishIngredients

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Crush crackers.

The easiest, least messy way I have found to do this is to put the crackers in a plastic bag  and roll with a rolling pin. A Quart size bag will hold most of the crackers. I split mine and did it 1/2 a sleeve at a time.

Combine ingredients. I used roughly 4 tablespoons of mixed salt and pepper.

Stir in the crackers.

I use a big bowl but you can combine in the baking dish.

Bake, uncovered for 1 hour.

Serves 2-4, double recipe for 4+ people

Large mixing bowl to mix cucumbers and spinach and iceburg

Cutting board

Knife to chop Cucumbers

Salad spoons if you have them (a wooden spoon will work)

Stir well

Add in salad dressing

I just love these little things!¬† Serves 6, ready in just over half an hour.¬† These are called popovers because they ‘pop up’ over the custard cups.

This is taken directly from a 1982 cookbook called Stir Ups written in southern dialect.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Place all ingredients in mixing bowl.
  2. Stir with spoon until dry ingredients are moist.  Disregard lumps.
  3. Pour into six cold, greased custard cups, half full.
  4. Place in cold oven.
  5. Set oven for 450 degrees, timer for 30 minutes.¬† Don’t peek.
  6. When bell rings, serve glorious popovers to startled guests.

That’s easy enough, but I like to use instead:

  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 2 eggs (or egg substitute)

And in case you aren’t familiar with custard cups, they’re these little glass things:


Important note Рnot all glass is oven safe!  Make sure yours are.  Pyrex is.

If you don’t have individual cups or just don’t want to deal with the fuss, you can also use a greased muffin tin.

Enjoy!  These are best served warm from the oven.

Cookies √† la France

French Cookies


These cookies take about a minute each to cook (you’ll be using a waffle iron) and they have to be refrigerated overnight.¬† That might sound like a long time to wait, but when you’re done, these cookies √† la France will come out deliciously light and fluffy, and the most beautiful golden brown.

This recipe will make about 2 dozen mysteriously vanishing cookies.

  • 3 eggs, separated, room temperature
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cups oil.¬† Melted butter is traditional, but melted coconut oil is a much healthier option.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Beat yolks until thick and yellow.
  2. Beat whites until foamy.
  3. Combine dry ingredients.  Mix well.
  4. Stir in oil, yolks, and vanilla.
  5. Fold in whites, blend well.
  6. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  7. Shape 1-inch balls, and bake in a waffle iron a few at a time until golden brown – about 1 minute.
