It’ll be so long until it’s soon; it’ll be so long until it’s June.

It’ll be so long until it’s soon; it’ll be so long until it’s June.

Holy Cannoli! Vegan Cannoli!

It had to be done. Veganizing cannoli. I had a recipe from The Vegetarian Site in my task box since January. In light of my sister, a long-time cannoli queen, and my Pop’s July birthdays, I would finally give it a go. After great success […]
