Let’s start!

1. Peanut Butter Pudding

Silky Smooth Peanut Butter Pudding, made super creamy thanks to the arrowroot starch that also makes it grain free. If you don’t have issues with grain, you can use corn starch as well.

2. Vegan Dark Chocolate Tofu Cheesecake

If you haven’t try Chocolate Tofu Cheesecake I personally think you are missing out of a super treat. I know it sounds gross (tofu! eww!) BUT you can’t really taste the tofu thanks to the magic of the dark chocolate. If you are avoiding soy, we’ve got you covered (see below)

3. Brownies

These Chocolate Brownies from Gimme Some Oven are the bomb. They are made with a secret ingredient (no so secret because you can find it in the recipe lol) that give the fudgy texture. If you are all about Fudgy Brownies, You are going to love these! Yum Yum!

4. Easy Cheesecake

Are you a fan of a classic super creamy Cheesecake… Check out this one! Amazing texture (and flavor!) but in vegan version <3 from the talented Dana from Minimalist Baker.

5. Chocolate Truffles

These delicate, chocolate-y and super decadent chocolate truffles from Baked by an Introvert are incredibly easy to make and “lazy-friendly” (in case you are lazy, or super exhausted from cooking for shabbath but still need that sweet note at the end of the meal)

6. Seven-Layers Bars

These delicate, chocolate-y and super decadent chocolate truffles from Baked by an Introvert are incredibly easy to make and “lazy-friendly” (in case you are lazy, or super exhausted from cooking for shabbath but still need that sweet note at the end of the meal)

7. Raw Mini Chocolate Cream Cakes

These mini cream pies are made with a nut base, but you can easily substitute the nuts for seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame…). If you are looking substitutes for the cashews cream in the chocolate filling, this coconut pie filling is a good alternative, that you can later lighten up a bit with whipped Aquafaba to give it more of a mousse-like consistency.

8. Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

Yet another chocolate recipe. This chocolate cake is moist, chocolaty and not too sweet, plus, you can make it easily in one bowl.

9. Apple Tart with Salted Caramel

Like it wasn’t enough to make a super decadent apple tart by adding a yummy crumble, this one is also made with salted caramel. I am drooling!

10. Napolitan N’Ice Cream Cake

If you are one of those who enjoy ice cream cake for every occasion, this one is for you! Just like a traditional super luscious ice cream, cake but 10 times healthier and vegan, to start the new year in good terms.

Lemony Potato Salad

A humble Lemony Potato Salad get a punch of flavor from lemon juice, lemon zest and parsley. Keep reading to get the recipe. 

To be honest, this recipe has been sitting on my drafts for over a month now. I made it when the days where way too hot, so it was sitting there while I tried to bring other more “summer friendly” dishes to my table and the blog. 

At the end of the day I posted a very fresh Grilled Eggplant & Avocado Salad two weeks ago, and then decided to take a week off as I was setting up the website for the home-based cake business I just started. Yay!. That was a little bit stressful. 

I think this came to be actually the perfect time to post this Lemony Potato Salad because this salad portraits the transition on the weather I am experiencing here right now. It has the bright lemony flavor characteristic of sunny days, but it is also satisfying and filling, sort of a comfort food you’ll want to eat on a much cooler, rainy days. 

Let’s talk about the ingredients…

Simple ingredients. Great results

For this Lemony Potato Salad I used the most humble ingredients you can think of, but they blend beautifully to give you the perfect, but not overpowering, tangy lemony flavor that goes very well with potatoes.  

To get the most amount of juice from the lemon don’t forget to press a little bit against the kitchen counter.

For this particular salad I peeled the potatoes, and cook until they are fork tender. The reason why I peeled is because I want to mash a bit of the potatoes, and that little mash, when mixed with the egg yolks, mayo and mustard, will add to the creamy texture without adding too much mayonnaise. 

To get perfect hard boiled eggs for this, or any recipe, place the room temperature eggs on a pot filled with water (make sure the water covers the eggs) and put over medium high heat. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat, and let it cook for 6 minutes. Get off the heat and cool off the eggs with cold water. Peel off and they are ready to use. When you cut in half you should be able to see a beautiful, perfectly cooked, creamy and bright yellow yolk. 

Mayo, mustard, onion and lemon are the main seasoning for this salad. I love how these 4 ingredients marry together to compliment the creamy potatoes. 

Yes! I also chopped the stalk of the fresh parsley

Finally, we have sweet peas and parsley. The fresh parsley has a peppery taste that goes really well with the lemon juice and zest. That combo is what gives you the bright flavor of this salad.

On the other hand, the sweet peas add a little bit of sweetness and a pop of color. I always put the frozen sweet peas to a strainer, and then add the hot potatoes on top. While the potatoes cool down, the sweet peas will defrost.
