Banana Maple Cake ( Vegan & GF)

Natalie Alice Zigdon6 comments

It doesn’t take much to hide the fact that I am pretty much of a regular sweet tooth person, and as it turns out the more the Air Conditioning is on the more you’ll be able to hear me cry for help i search of tea, and as a firm believer of you can’t have tea without cake (I’m awful, I know), I just had to have something feed my sweet tooth need.

Vegan Oreo Ice Cream Cake

Natalie Alice Zigdon7 comments

News says (if you haven’t heard yet) that Oreo, that darn perfect little cookie, is vegan. And what better way to celebrate this deliciously awesome cookie but with an ice cream cake?  I know what you’re gonna say – ‘Hey Allie, an Ice cream cake made of Oreos is probably not the healthiest sugary sweet in the bunch!”, and yeah, You’re absolutely right about it.

Baked Falafel Goodness

Natalie Alice Zigdon6 comments

I think one of the most undeniably annoying things you’ve got going for you as a vegan is the lack of variety you get when you are actually on a budget.You crave for some substance but most of the store-bought patties can cost a fortune.

The matter itself goes pretty much haywire when you actually have a chef for a brother and an amazing  mom that cooks mouth throbbing foods every Friday, when everybody is just clobbering away during dinner and you end up eating salads and some rice for like the hundred time.

Making Matcha White Chocolate

Natalie Alice Zigdon1 comment

I’ve been Vegan for about half a year now and one of the things I’ve missed most would probably have to be white chocolate. I’ve searched high and low and could not for the life of me find a non dairy version of white chocolate, And if there one thing any of you would probably have to know about me is that when I crave something, I would run miles and miles to get it. So I have tinkered with a couple variation and thought I’d share them with you. FYI, the ingredients are not at all cheap, quite the opposite actually. But if you wanna treat yourself, you might as well do a good job out of it.

The No WiFi Experiment

Natalie Alice Zigdon1 comment

I have been so so bad lately, failing to even get a glimpse of my little rainy haven here and I am so terribly sorry about it people but I promise, it was not without reason.
For the last couple of weeks I have been sick with the flu, babysitted my nephews and nieces and got back to a week packed full of delayed work stuff so as a rule I promised to let my body rejoice without meddling too much and decided to stop touching my computer every tiny second. Conclusion? It can be hard – you know what? Scartch that. It can be very hard but as most worthwhile stuff are, it’s not without its perks 🙂
Now my day-to-day non bloggery job is everything techy and computery so it was obviously not altogether absolute but for this addict here it was an absolute big deal. Trust me, you’ll be surprised how much more you can do once you turn of your WiFi off for 2 weeks 🙂

Vegan Pecan Lotus “Cheesecake”

Natalie Alice Zigdon19 comments


I have been a vegetarian for most of my life, but have only recently turned Vegan. Though it appears that recent changes did nothing to affect my sweet tooth as my cravings don’t seem to subside as easily. Now I have always loved cheesecake, I mean seriously, who doesn’t? So when my niece turned out to be lactose Intolerant I figured I’ll go all out and made up this bad boy right here, and to be frank? This Saturday morning was the test run and half a cake had managed to disappear in only one sitting. And nobody, and I do mean nobody, could have guessed that it wasn’t the “cheesy” kind of cheesecake. So if you’re looking for a vegan delight, you should definitely give this a try 🙂
