cute food

Cooking in layers

CSA season has not yet started, which means that I'm not drowning in vegetables. Even without all those fresh veggies, I do cook throughout the year.

The other day, I made shepherd's pie. But instead of topping it with mashed potatoes, I topped it with sweet potato casserole.I liked this combination and might repeat it.

And in other cooking news: coconut cake.This cake look and tastes rich and creamy, but is dairy free. It was the first time I made dairy-free frosting instead of dairy-free royal icing. Coconut milk was a helpful addition to the cake, and coconut cream to the frosting. Also, shredded coconut. Because there cannot be too much coconut.
