Nobi’s Kitchen- Baking Up A Storm in Plantation, FL

by jem614

I am in love with the healthy ingredients in Nobi’s Kitchen’s bakery items (most are vegan by the way).  She makes cakes, cupcakes, cookies, breads- the challah she bakes is way better than you’ll find anywhere.  And moms that are nursing?  No problem!!  She has lactation cookies that are not only great for building up your supply but are tasty too.

I recently ordered a dozen zucchini muffins for myself and my son as a way to get him to eat more veggies.  He is the pickiest eater on the planet and he loved them!  They tasted moist and flavorful, sweet even though they have only about 1/4 cup of sugar- IN AN ENTIRE DOZEN!  That low sugar content is so hard to find isn’t it?

The name “Nobi” is actually an adorable mash-up of her children’s names.  She started her business baking in her gorgeous rustic kitchen so she could spend more time doing what she loves: baking and spending time with her family. She’s an entrepreneur and a great mom!

Quickie Post: Jumping Kitchen Bakehouse (Yum Vegan treats)

by jem614

Just wanted to share what we found this weekend at the Commercial Beach Farmers Market in Fort Lauderdale:

This “bakehouse” sells at a farm to table restaurant in Broward but there isn’t much information online for them.  Looking forward to seeing where they will go from here…

*Update- they have a Facebook page now! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jumping-Kitchen-and-Bakehouse-LLC/874731802551930

Aunt Pat’s Texas Cookies (Ancestral Recipe #1)

by jem614

By Jessica Michael

I’m finally going back to my roots and sharing those recipes I received on my wedding day.  Aunt Pat is no longer with us but her memory will always be!

 

As you can see, Aunt Pat’s cookies are not vegan.  She was a believer in eating whatever she wanted- my best memories of her were going to City Market in Grand Junction, CO to buy Ice Cream then heading to the Video store for a full night of scary movies!  She indulged us as kids and loved us as if we were her own, I miss that about her.

My husband still talks about the Thanksgiving and Christmas we went up to visit our cousins and my aunt.  He misses the over the top food spread that we would never be able to accomplish between the two of us ;).

Aunt Pat’s Texas Cookies are meant to be big and fat and delicious.  Unfortunately because I used coconut oil and reduced it, it didn’t turn out to be the big monster cookies I expected (so please be sure to use the butter- of course use the Earth Balance if you want it to be vegan).  Also, you might want to use a little extra egg replacer if it’s not moist enough.

Here are my replacements (the cookies still turned out delicious, just a little dry):

Coconut oil (reduced by 1/4)
Ener-G Egg Replacer
Oat Flour (because I’m allergic to wheat)
Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips (dairy free, gluten free, Vegan)
Brown Sugar (not sure this was a good change but I would stick to regular sugar till you know for sure)

So, this ended up being my dinner last night because I literally could not stop eating it.  It is delicious and because it has nuts and coconut and chocolate and oats; it was like eating a granola bar.  Plus! It had no eggs in it so eating it before it was baked was not a problem.
