Gluten free vegan brownies
modified from this
makes a lot.
I make recipes like a lazy person so I throw everything into the bowl starting with dry, mix that, then add the other stuff. I don’t want to wash two bowls.
Bake this at 350 degrees F in a greased pan for at least half an hour until a fork comes out clean from the center.
this is a really good recipe because at the farm, we have to deal with soy allergies, gluten allergies, nut allergies, and vegan food restrictions. you can use milk instead of coffee if you’re not vegan or don’t like coffee.

Ensalada de nopales con queso fresco
Cactus salad with queso fresco
craving nopal! anyone out there have any good recipes?
One morning last winter I decided to get up and make myself some hollandaise sauce. I’m sure my plan was to just eat it all alone in one sitting. Anyway, it curdled in the double boiler I had rigged up so I tried again in the same pot, even though the pot I was using was the problem. Lo and behold, my second batch curdled right before my eyes. I ended up crying about it in the bathtub, you know, like you do. The point is, if you have fragile feefees and love hollandaise like I do, the blender-method (below) is a life saver. There is literally no way to fuck it up and it takes all of 5 minutes to make.
serves 2, or 1 if you’re trying to drown your feelings in butter
2 egg yolks
1 tsp-1 tbs lemon juice
pinch of salt
4 tbs butter
pinch of lemon zest (optional)
Blend yolks, salt, as much lemon juice as you’re into in blender for 5 seconds.
Microwave butter until it’s completely melted & bubbly.
Pour bubbling hot butter in thin stream into blender mixture as it’s blending on low.

submitting my own guacamole recipe, my family tears it up when I make it and my coworkers have commented on how good it is. I hope you love it too!
4 ripe avocados, peeled and of course, that big pretty seed** put to the side for a little plant maybe?
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 lil scoops of finely chopped onion OR about a 1/2 tsp of onion powder
another two lil scoops of mashed garlic (I peel and mash in a pilon) or 1/2 tsp of garlic powder will do
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
3 strips of crumbled up bacon (I let them cook on the pan till they’re kinda crispy)
1/4 cup corn juice from the can and use about 2 tablespoons or so of corn kernels
I mash up all of the ingredients with the juice except the bacon and corn kernels which I stir in afterward.
the seasoning is pretty much to taste, I don’t even follow my own recipe word for word every time. :)
** Editors note: Save the avocado pit for your guac! Putting the pit back in the guacamole when it’s ready to eat will keep it fresh longer/stop it from getting brown as it oxidizes…I guess it tricks the avocado into thinking it’s still alive? Any way, enjoy! -LQC
