Quick & Easy Onion Barley Loaf

Quick & Easy Onion Barley Loaf

I’ll be the first to admit:  I don’t love onions. Not unlike Beets, I know they’re good for me, but I just can’t get over my dislike of their texture. Maybe that’s one of the reasons that I’m constantly coming up with new ways to use them in my recipes that will change my mind some day about the texture of one of the World’s most popular vegetables.  I love the smell, particularly around holiday time with butter and celery simmering away along side them in a pan.  I love onion rings. Unless the breading comes off and I get a mouthful of that slimy strip of thick onion.  Not my favorite.  I love toasted onion seasoning, onion soup (without the onion), and I even love onion bread as witnessed here in this lovely pan of Onion Barley Bread I have for you today.  If I can’t feel that onion texture in a bite, I’m in love with everything else about the old onion.   I hope this simple onion loaf will help to change anyone’s mind about using onions in your cooking.   If you love Onions, you’ll love this simple, hearty loaf already.  If you don’t love Onions,…

Vegan Shoo Fly Cake with Pomegranates

Vegan Shoo Fly Cake with Pomegranates

1 year ago – Vegan Sweet Potato Cheesecake Featured in the Sunday, Sept. 23 round up for Vegan MoFo, thanks! Anyone who’s familiar with South Eastern Pennsylvania in the United States will most likely boast about the traditions of the Amish and Mennonites.  Home-baked cakes and pies have their roots in the hard working people of this area of the U.S.   ‘Shoo-Fly Pie’ is said to have originated from the pools of molasses which form in the top of the pie while baking. The sweet smells of caramelizing sugars attract insects as they do the rest of us. A sweet treat, made a little fancier here with a sprinkling of pomegranate berries mixed in with the batter in drizzled on top. I wanted to add the pomegranate berries to add a little more nutrition to this treat.  It is just that:  a treat, not to be eaten so regularly that you’ve added a few pounds on along with the benefits of the pomegranates….maybe for a special get together with friends or to cheer up a friend with a small slice of delicious, moist, sugary cake?

Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Blondies

Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Blondies

  I’ve always wondered what the difference between ‘brownies’ and ‘blondies’ is.  Now I know, it’s just a little molasses.  Or Brown Sugar.     Creating a Vegan Blondie wasn’t too tricky, but this version is also Gluten Free so I was very pleased that it turned out moist and cakey.  Gluten free and I are not friends yet in the kitchen………..but we’re talking at least The flax ‘eggs’ worked well, I added both yeast and baking powder to make sure the batter had some lift.  And homemade brown sugar makes them as fresh as possible. I mixed up my first batch of brown sugar last year and am truly addicted to the difference from store bought.   If  you’ve never tried your own, here’s some details on how easy it really is to mix up and have fresh on hand anytime:         Homemade brown sugar makes up in about 5 minutes and only has two ingredients. You can make it dark or light, store it just like store bought and more importantly you’ll know what’s in it……….you can use the molasses of choice and sugar of choice for that matter.  Check here for more details.  It’s…
