Made from the ingredients on display by YOU KNOW WHO!

And you know where to come for the best!

To CHEF SHARON’S Animal-Free Kitchen! That’s where it all happens!


FEATURE INGREDIENTS:

1 – SO DELICIOUS HOLIDAY NOG

2 – RICH’S WHIP TOPPING

HOLIDAY NOG AND APPLE CIDER PIE

Ever wonder why the people over at Kraft foods didn’t expand the JELL-O brand? They make a gelatin, a pudding and a pie filling for cream pies. For three separate desserts. Why didn’t anyone try to combine the qualities of gelatin with the qualities of pudding? Well, tradition never stopped AFC Global from experimenting with a new concept. Here are the results! Combining a juice with the cream produces a gelatin-like cream. You don’t need the actual gelatin nor agar to produce something unique yet familiar and enjoyable!

Oh, and served in a carob cookie cider pie crust! Topped with dairy free whip cream!

Makes 1, 9 inch pie







 

Häagen-Dazs Releases 4 New Vegan Ice Cream Bars and Pints

HÄAGEN-DAZS RELEASES 4 NEW VEGAN ICE CREAM BARS AND PINTS

Editorial Assistant, LIVEKINDLY | New York City | Contactable via: kat@livekindly.co

Posted by Kat Smith | Apr 4, 2018

Popular ice cream brand Häagen-Dazs has just expanded its line of vegan ice cream products to include four new desserts: chocolate-covered vegan ice cream bars and dairy-free pints that feature cookie crumbles.

The new pint options are Crunchy Peanut Butter and Coconut Cookies and Crème, both of which are part of the Trio Crispy Layers collection. Both flavors feature the company’s non-dairy ice cream base layered with crispy cookie crumble pieces. And for the first time ever, Häagen-Dazs will offer vegan versions of its signature chocolate-covered ice cream bars in Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge and Coconut Caramel Dark Chocolate.

“We start every non-dairy dessert from core ingredients like rich peanut butter, velvet coconut cream, or real pieces of chocolate to create a creamier, more authentic experience,” the company stated.

Last summer, Häagen-Dazs released its first four vegan ice cream flavors: Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge, Coconut Caramel, Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle, and Mocha Chocolate Cookie. To start, the flavors were available only at Target, but earlier this year, the brand expanded distribution to include grocery stores across the nation…

Lotus Paste Moon Cake

CECE MOON CAKE 1

My friend CiCi knows I like moon cake, so dropped some by the other night when Steve was in hospital and she was delivering food to the complex. So good. Not too sweet, which is how I like desserts now.

MINI MOONCAKE

MINI MOON CAKES

A friend gave me these a few days ago.

Even though they’re not as sweet as American desserts, they really are quite good – actually so good that Steve and I ate them all at once. I like that they’re not so sweet-tasting – just enough to satisfy.

The dense, smooth, creamy, elegant texture is unlike any cake-type dessert I’ve ever tasted. These were the lotus paste variety, but mooncakes are made with many different ingredients and are usually most popular during the mid-Autumn festival in China.

Next time I’m at a Chinese market, I’ll definitely buy some.

UPDATE: Well, my friend gave me more, a different brand.

MOONCAKE

WOW!

“The Mooncake Name

Mooncakes (月饼 yuèbǐng /ywair-bing/) are named after the moon goddess (Chang’e), who is said to make this kind of cake.”
