Baked Zucchini Fritters (inspired by latkes)

In honor of the first night of Hanukkah, I thought it appropriate to share a recipe I made for a friend’s holiday party last weekend. Let me preface this post by saying that I LOVE potatoes and this recipe should not be thought of as complete substitute for traditional latkes. The holidays are a time…

Citrus Creme Patissiere Croissants

Today is a special day at Garlic Head… we have a guest poster! I’d like to introduce my friend Lauren . She lives a gluten-free lifestyle and I’ve always admired her fun and delicious-looking photos on Instagram. When I saw this croissant recipe, I knew I had to ask for the recipe! It’s the perfect thing for…

Vegan Broccoli Cheddar Soup

It’s officially December, which means I am SO ready for soup season. Bring on the chili, black bean, lentil, split pea, squash…a different one for every evening of December perhaps? OK…let’s not get ahead of ourselves. If you’ve ever visited a Panera bread, you may be familiar with my inspiration for this dish. When I…

Autumn Pizza with a Tuscan Pumpkin Sauce

Have I really not posted a pizza recipe yet? Consider this a formal introduction: Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Making a pie that is vegan-friendly, however, can be a challenge. One does not simply omit cheese and have a delicious end result! I was determined to create a savory, flavorful pizza that was…

Apple Crumble Donuts

Quick question: do you prefer “donuts” or “doughnuts”? The other day it occurred to me that I had no idea which variation was correct. What Google revealed proved extraordinary. How did people live prior to the age of Internet search engines? Apparently, both spellings are acceptable. In this country, “donut” holds preference. Perhaps because Americans…

Pumpkin Baked French Toast

Hi friends! It’s been years! OK, not really. It feels that way though. Between work, an internship, and studying for the GRE, this is a very busy season of life. Not that I’m complaining! All good things coming down the pipeline. Good news for you all is that I HAVE been cooking and photographing a…

Baked Granola Pears (six ingredients!)

Looking for an elegant dish that literally involves five minutes of prep time? These walnut pear boats are the ideal solution! To be honest, pears have always been one of my least favorite fruits. I can’t put my finger on why, but I just don’t normally find them that exciting. Perhaps it’s a texture issue?…

Apple Rose Tarts

Hi friends! Happy fall! It’s officially getting cooler here and I am not mad about it. Bring on the squash, potatoes,  soup, and of course 🍎🍏🍎🍏! Lately I have been really into the single-serving dessert format. Perhaps this is because these recipes are much easier to share? I love pies + cakes as much as the…

Carrot Ginger Quinoa Pepper “Jacks”

As kitschy as some find it, I absolutely love holiday “themed” foods. Here in America, Halloween is about two weeks away and I’ve already seen a decent showing online of different party foods. When I was growing up, a big trend in our family were witch finger cookies. Some people may find it cheesy, but I…

Chai Latte Baked Donuts

Yes, another “latte-inspired” recipe. Am I a true millennial? So be it! This post will be a break from you regularly scheduled pumpkin programming. Still full of cozy fall goodness. If you really do want pumpkin (I can’t blame you, honestly), I do have a version here! These donuts are lighter than the typical fried version…

Almond and Berry Stuffed French Toast

Can we all agree that the first meal of the day is the most fun? At least, I think it should be. I think I would like to host a brunch wedding just so my guests can indulge in waffles, scones, muffins, or whatever other carb-y delights their hearts desire. Mimosa bar, anyone? Let’s not…

A Peek Inside my Hungry Harvest Delivery

So I’ve written about my partnership with Hungry Harvest (here) on this website before, so please read that if you’re not familiar with who they are! Hi friends! I thought I would give you all a specific peek into what a typical order from Hungry Harvest looks like. In the past few months, HH has introduced…
