    Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan)

    This is scandalous to say, but these are just as good as your mom’s chocolate chip cookies. GASP. “How can that be when they are vegan?”. Well, I will show you how. This recipe doesn’t have chickpea flour or any other strange baking ingredients. This is just a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe that is made for vegans or anyone that likes tasty cookies. I deem this a down to earth recipe. Pin this for later 🙂 I adapted this recipe from the Nestle Toll House original recipe. You know, the one that’s on the back of the chocolate chip bag. It’s a classic and there’s no point in ruining…

    Pear Crumb Muffins (Vegan)

    I’m going to be 100% real with you. I am not a fan of muffins. I have two exceptions. I enjoy pumpkin muffins and the other exception happens to be this recipe. If you are anything like my sister; then you are probably thinking, “what about blueberry?”. Blueberry muffins are meh. Lemon poppy seed muffins are alright. But pear crumb muffins are by far my favorite. Pin This For Later 🙂 You might be wondering, “why pear?”. Pears are the superior fall/winter fruit. Pears enhance vanilla and cinnamon flavors. I also feel like they release more sugary juices in comparison to apples. However, if you don’t feel this way about…

    A Vegan Valentine’s Day & Chocolate Cupcakes

    I think I need to give myself kudos on this one because this is a twofer and I am actually getting it up before Valentine’s Day! As the title suggests, I have a cupcake recipe to share. I also wanted to share some vegan-related Valentine’s Day ideas. Although I am single, I don’t despise Valentine’s Day. I think that it can be a time to show gratitude to your loved ones; whether they are a significant other, friend, or family member. Pin This For Later 🙂 I don’t know if I have talked about this here, but I bought a cookbook secondhand and I thought it would be cool to…

    Vegan Baking: Triumphs and Fails

    Baking takes practice and vegan baking takes even more practice. The basics revolve around substitutes like: flax eggs, soy milk, mashed fruit, etc. I guess I’ll start with some of my vegan baking “hacks”. To substitute eggs, I use either a flax egg or a mashed banana. When I want to imitate the structure eggs give, I use ground flax seed mixed with water. I typically use 1 tablespoon in place of one egg and mix this with 2-3 tablespoons of water. In most of my recipes, I use 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed with 4-6 tablespoons of water. I let it rest for about 5 minutes or until…

    Cranberry Cinnamon Buns (Vegan)

    These are some nice buns! My baking game has elevated and I am now using yeast. Let me warn you, yeast is a fickle beast. Sometimes everything goes great and other times- it’s a complete disaster! The bright side of yeast is that traditional baking ingredients like eggs, are not required to raise the dough. Which is great news for all of us eating plant-based. Pin This For Later 🙂 Homemade cinnamon rolls have always intimidated me. In the past, I would just go for the kind that came in an aluminum cylinder. You probably know the kind. I’m always looking for new things to veganize. There are store bought…

    Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Scones (Vegan)

    These exceeded my expectations! This recipe is not something I had planned. I was making some basic scones on a Saturday morning, as one does, and I just so happened to have dried cranberries and vegan chocolate in my pantry. A star was born. Some of the best scones I have made, truly.  Yum, Yum, and Yummy are three words to describe these scones.  Pin This For Later! I used a blend of oat flour and wheat flour. You can use all-purpose if that is easier. For the fat, I used coconut oil. This made nice layers, but chilled margarine will have the same effect. The rest of the ingredients…

    A Vegan Thanksgiving (2018)

    I went overboard this year… I cooked and ate way too much over Thanksgiving. The holidays are for binge eating though, at least in the US.

Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip. Vegan Stuffing. Salad. Sweet Potato and Bean Chili. Tempeh (sautéed). Some of the recipes I have already posted, so I will link to that specific post. Pumpkin and Maple Scones The recipe can be found here: Vegan Recipes for Fall (Sweet and Savory). Pear and Apple Crisp This…

    Sweet Treats for Vegans

    Following a vegan lifestyle shouldn’t feel limiting! You don’t need to say goodbye to your favorite treats when you adopt a plant-based diet. Only a few easy substitutions are needed! I have three sweet treats that I want to share. They are fully vegan and beginner friendly. Pin This ⇓♥ 1. Lemon Blueberry Bread I cheated on this one because it’s barely homemade. This is more of a food hack. Most baking mixes are accidentally vegan. Instead of using eggs use a flax egg (1 tbsp of flax seeds with 2-3 tbsps of water = 1 egg) or 1/2 of a mashed banana. If the box calls for milk, just use…
