Decadence!

chocolate peanut butter truffles

Oh myyyyyyy. Made this delicious little candies of chocolaty goodness for Christmas and everyone absolutely loved them. This recipe is a keeper! These chocolates are better than any you can buy in a store. I personally don’t enjoy store bought chocolates anymore because I think they all have a faint flavor of chemicals and plastic,…

vegan italian antipasto skewers

We cooked up a vegan Italian Christmas this year and it was so incredible. My vegan lasagna turned out better than ever and I can’t wait to go in and tweak my recipe so you can all try this new version. The old version is great, but ohmygosh. Every non-vegan loved it which I consider…

candied pecans

Candied pecans make a wonderful addition to salads and desserts. They also make a wonderful snack! I like to make up big batches around the holidays for hostess gifts and as an addition to Christmas gift baskets. They’re easy to prepare and so delicious! 1/3 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg…

best vegan banh mi {saigon sub sandwich}

Before I went vegan I was a banh mi FANATIC. I made my own version of the traditional banh mi, and a crock pot banh mi. Also knows as the “Saigon Sub,” the banh mi sandwich is one of those unforgettable, delicious, and oh-so-addictive flavor combinations. People who love them are passionate about them. I…

vegan mushroom fettuccine alfredo

This is definitely the time of year when I need my comfort food. Hearty soups and stews, chili, lentil loaf with a pile of buttery mashed potatoes, and for SURE creamy pasta dishes! There’s nothing quite like a warming, cozy, meal at the end of the day. Especially if you’ve been out and about in…

best vegan banana bread

Who doesn’t love the smell of banana bread baking in the oven? I have a hard time waiting for it to cool all the way before slicing off a thick piece and slathering it in vegan butter. This banana bread is wonderful as a tea time treat, or after school snack. Kids love it with…

best vegan ranch dressing on the planet

I have been searching for really GOOD vegan ranch dressing and have yet to find one that meets my standards. I’ve bought them all, and they’re all pretty meh. Just brand made a decent one that was the best one I could find as far as the store-bought stuff goes, but I haven’t been able…

{vegan} fried green tomato BLT

Ohmygosh. Have you ever had a fried green tomato BLT? I had one a few years ago (before going vegan) and I was craving one like crazy a couple weeks ago. I couldn’t stop thinking about it! I had just made a batch of my VEGAN SEITAN BACON and, as fate would have it, I…

best vegan bagel & lox

I had a craving. Bagels with cream cheese and lox with a cup of French press coffee. One of my absolute favorite things to eat. Since I don’t eat fish anymore, what in the heck was I supposed to do? I looked up vegan lox online and found a bunch of recipes for carrot lox.…

zhoug

Being an adorer of Italian pesto for most of my life, I’ve recently been playing with new recipes for similar condiments. Mind you, they all taste vastly different. The process is much the same though. Throw some fresh herbs, some sort of nuts or seeds, extra virgin olive oil, something citrusy and/or acidic, and a…
