Vegan Meringue Frosting with Aquafaba

Vegan Vanilla Meringue Frosting Made with Aquafaba

I gave my unsuspecting mother-in-law a cupcake with vegan vanilla meringue frosting made with aquafaba.  When I finally told her what it was, she said, “Oh, I read something about that aquafaba stuff and I thought, ‘Yuck!’  But, this didn’t taste like yuck at all.”  Score!

How to Turn Leftover Hot Dog and Hamburger Buns Into Sweet Breakfast Pastries

Extra buns are the missing socks of the food world.  No matter how carefully I shop, I somehow always end up with more buns than meat after a party. Leftover hamburger buns and leftover hot dog buns can be used for sandwiches, but why do that when you can turn them into a breakfast pastry that […]
