easy cinnamon rolls

These are delicious and pretty easy to prepare. The homemade dough actually goes together much quicker than I thought it would.

I was craving pot pie yesterday. That creamy, gravy-like filling in a buttery crust. Yum! But how to recreate it now that I’m vegan? I had to get to work in the kitchen. Time to develop a recipe to satisfy the craving. I also wanted to make something easy enough to pass as a weeknight…

vegan bulgogi + easy steamed bao buns

I was inspired to make this dish after enjoying vegan bulgogi at a restaurant on our last vacation. They served theirs in corn tortillas and topped the tacos with chunks of avocado. It was delicious, but I decided to make my own version and use more traditional toppings. I also wanted to develop a recipe…

creamy mexican street corn salad {elotes}

This is one of those salads I could make all summer long and never get tired of it. It’s slightly sweet corn crunch blends well with the fresh flavors of cilantro and veggies, and I added smoked paprika for a little depth. Some may want to top their salad with fried bacon crumbles and crumbled…
