Decadence!

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…

vegan seitan bacon

I made vegan bacon. That happened. Fun fact: Did you know that pork bacon (and other processed meats like hot dogs, sausage, ham, corned beef, beef jerky, canned meats, and many others) have been classified as class one carcinogens? Other carcinogens in this category are tobacco, pesticides, and arsenic. Yum, yum. Eating just two slices…

vanilla pudding pumpkin pie cups

Craving pumpkin pie but also in a hurry and don’t have time to make one? Have no fear. This little dessert will save the day. Just make these in the morning and let them chill while you’re at work. Top with vegan whipped cream (Reddi Wip makes an almond whipped cream and a coconut one!…

sexy sun-dried tomato cranberry pesto

It’s not that I don’t ADORE classic basil pesto, because I do… but sometimes it’s nice to try a different condiment. I’ve literally made four batches of pesto this summer. Pretty big batches too, and none, I repeat, none, of the jars were frozen. To be fair, I did give some away to friends and…

best vegan pumpkin bread

It’s that time of year again! The time of year when everything is pumpkin spice and everything nice. I love it when we turn the calendar to September and the kids are back in school. My kids are done with school now, at least for the time being, and it’s a bit strange, but I…
