Vegan Banana Ice Cream

Here is something very easy. You know how bananas don’t last very long. You only have about a two or three day window of time to eat them when they are just right. They are usually either too green or too ripe and that “just right” time is very slim. Well, just before they get to the point when you have to throw them out and if you know you won’t be eating them, peel and cut them into chunks. Put them in a baggie and freeze....

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies weren't served for dessert that night, just the traditional chocolate chip cookies. Thin, crisp, grainy and delicious.

Apple Dumplings

There is only one big apple, but here are a few varieties of the baked kind. An Apple Dumpling Story or, in Pennsylvania Dutch, “Eb’l Dumplin’” The year was 1969. The month, October. That’s what is on my recipe card.
