Needles to say I had been looking forward to her new cookbook for months and months. The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook offers, as the title suggest, a bunch of recipes to make for different holidays, ranging from appetizers to deserts. Continue Reading

Gooey Vegan Pecan Pie

One of my favorite pies ever is pecan pie. I have made it at least twenty times, starting off with existing recipes, adjusting and creating my own recipe along the way. To me, this is the perfect pecan pie. It is caramelized, gooey, and soft with a crunchy, flakey, buttery crust.

Review: The Oh She Glows Cookbook

Today I will be reviewing a cookbook that every vegan in the world should own: The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon.

I’ve had this book for about a month now and after trying thirteen recipes, I am ready to give my opinion about it. The good and the bad, here we go. Continue Reading

Talking about cookbooks

A few days ago, I posted my very first recipe on Black-Luck. I honestly had some doubts whether a recipe would be appropriate on my blog or not. After some thought, I decided to go for it and I introduced this new genre of posts here, on my special place on the internet. You might not know this about me, but I am pretty passionate about food. When I was a kid, I used to watch my mom bake and cook in our kitchen for hours. It looked like magic to me. Every Sunday, she took her time to make an extra luxurious meal for us, baking loafs, making jam, chocolate spread, savory salads and hot cocoa. I was her partner in crime, cutting vegetables, laying out all of the ingredients needed and following her simple orders. Continue Reading

Marinated Tofu with Spinach & Mushroom

Hi there readers! Today I am doing something completely different: a recipe post. Whaaat, no cosmetics? Nope, not today. I’ve gotten so deep into vegan cookbooks lately, that I felt inspired to make my very first recipe post.

Today I am serving you a basic, yet very filling and crowd-pleasing meal: marinated tofu with spinach and mushroom. The process of creating this dish is rather easy, yet it takes a little planning in advance since the tofu needs to be marinated before you start cooking. Ideally you’d want to marinate the tofu in the morning, leave for work, school or whatever, and then cook the dish in the evening.
