Lilly concocted three flavors of popcorn.

  1. Coconut – coconut oil, coconut flakes
  2. “Cheese” – Nutritional yeast, Earth balance butter
  3. Caramel – Brown sugar, Earth balance butter

Slynn: Brookies

Trying to recreate something Ramon found while on tour, Slynn made these brookies by first making a recipe of chocolate chip cookies and a recipe of brownies. Then she put the brownie batter into a muffin tin and scooped cookie dough on top. After realizing she had forgotten to add sugar to the brownies, she mixed up a caramel sauce that was poured onto the brookies after baking. Little workarounds like these are what make baking special.


Ramon: Baby Boomstix (baked corndogs)

Ramon made the Skillet Cornbread recipe from Veganomicon but added Daiya® Cheddar Style shreds, green onions, bell peppers, and Tofurky® Hot Dog pieces. Then he baked them in a muffin tin for easy to eat corn dog treats.

Billy: Chili “Cheese” Fries

Billy made a nutritional yeast based queso sauce, adding soyrizo, Mama Kettler salsa, soymilk powder, and probably several other things. He served it with some store-bought seasoned fries.

Lauren: Classic Soft Pretzels, Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

Like Mark and Morgan, Lauren made pretzel dough from scratch. She served one batch seasoned with coarse sea salt and another batch tossed in cinnamon and sugar.
