IMG_5286

There have been a few attempts at vegan soft serve over the years but Milky’s on Robertson Blvd really blows everything I’ve tried before out of the water.  Milky’s offers both regular fro-yo and a vegan version…. and the dairy-free ones that I tried were actually really, really good!  It  features 9 double machines with 18+ flavors that are rotated... Read More

After a bunch of tests, I finally am pretty sure I have mastered the holy grail of vegan desserts – tiramisu.  The lady finger recipe is in part inspired by the one on Insomniac Chef, along with a combination of “traditional” recipes I also checked out.  The filling was a lot of taste testing (such a chore, I know).
