Trisha's Lasagna with Ricotta

This is food television at its best. We are actually learning how to use brand new ingredients to adjust a familiar dish into one that is good for us. More of this.

Also, Garth Brooks prefers her Tofu Ricotta to the real thing - the world can stop making Ricotta now.
Plus! How to press tofu & how amazing nutritional yeast is.. nbd.
The biggest thank you to Trisha Yearwood, Ellen Rakieten & Food Network for savin our health by cookin outside the box.

Royal Q's Mini Soft Cakes

Green Tea Walnut Cake // Nations Fresh Foods Hamilton

What do you call those foodstuffs that seem 'meh, ok' upon the first few bites, but then you can't stop eatin 'em until they're all gone.. then you can't stop thinkin about how delicious they were. 
For days. 
You know.

Debi's Guacamole + Gabriele's Beets

Hold the phone. Don't salt your beet chips until after they come out of the oven? Otherwise they'll get soggy!? This changes everything about everything. And Gabriele Corcos says he's not a chef.
But 1 Question: what does he say at 0:35?!
Thank you to Zero Point Zero Productions for the food tv gorgeousness that is Extra Virgin.

Giada's Pumpkin Cookies

Accidentally vegan baking's the best. Giada's the best. So here we are getting best best. 
So allergy aware too! No dairy, eggs, nuts or soy. Yes oats, raisins, pumpkin. Make lil health nuts outta yourselves. 
Endless gratitude to Scripps & Food Network for the inventive simplicity that is Giada at Home.

Rachael's Chocolate Cupcakes

A sincere thank you to The Rachael Ray Show for the classiness, loveliness and info-fullness it brings to daytime tv.

The easiest chocolate cupcake recipe: if these two can do it, you can too! (No seriously. They both don't bake).
p.s. The frosting is made of tofu, so it not only is packed with protein, but it won't melt in the sun (this is why Rachael has a show: she smart).
You can find Mayim Bialik's vegan cupcake recipe here: Fudge Cupcakes
p.p.s. Many semi-sweet chocolate chips are accidentally vegan, especially store brands.
