Gluten-Free Plum Cake

 
Hello, autumn! Today’s feature is a gluten-free plum cake, a lesser-known but nonetheless quintessential harbinger of fall.

Maybe you’ve heard of Marian Burros’ famous plum torte via the New York Times. A longstanding tradition, the recipe has appeared in the Times every September since 1983, and no one is tired of it yet. After a month of baking plum pies at work, I’m just now getting around to experimenting with the last of the stone fruit at home. If I baked one thing with plums this year, I reasoned, a simple gluten-free plum cake would be the best use of my time. Continue reading…

Village Salad

 

August! Where to begin with all this produce? Nightshades (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers) are here in abundance, zucchini and cucumber and green beans are still going strong, and sorry, kale is going to be around forever. And the fruit! Peaches, plums, blueberries and blackberries? Honestly, it’s overwhelming.

Good thing there is salad. And not just any salad, mind you. My favorite salad from the Yemeni restaurant next door: the Village Salad. Read on for the recipe!

{Vegan} Chia Banoffee Pudding Parfaits

Oh dear, bikini season. 

It always comes as a bit of a shock, because for the most part I’m pretty covered up. (Modest is the hottest?) Reason being, sweaters are awesome and I am so, so tired of conversations about whether I play volleyball or tennis (Answer: Stop imagining me in tiny shorts, creep). 

I’m also somehow without a full-length mirror (more tall girl problems), so really, the only time I get a good look at myself is the odd photo.
