    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…

    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…

    Vegan Pasta Bake + Tofu Ricotta

    I used to roll my eyes when a food blogger talked about tofu ricotta and how it was so similar to traditional ricotta. I didn’t believe them to be honest. Cheesy lasagna and pasta bakes were something that I missed from before I was vegan. So I started experimenting with tofu ricotta. The first time I made it, it was garbage. It tasted so bad, but I finally have a recipe that tastes good and performs similarly to traditional ricotta.  Pin This For Later ⇓♥ This recipe is also gluten free. I used a pasta that was made out of green lentils and that’s why the picture has a green…

    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. Last year, I posted recipes from Thanksgiving and I thought I would continue the tradition this year. Here is a rundown on what I ate… Pumpkin and Maple Scones. Apple and Pear Crisp. 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…

    Inauthentic Vegan Falafel

    I researched a lot of falafel recipes. Many of them said things like “you must use chickpea flour” or “canned chickpeas WILL NOT work”. That’s a bit dramatic. I enjoy authentic falafel; but when I make it at home, I am not going to go out of my way to make a glorified veggie patty. So if you are wondering why “inauthentic” is in the title, it’s because this is a more Americanized and forgiving recipe. Nonetheless, it is delicious and healthy. PIN THIS ⇓♥ On to what you came here for, the recipe… Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Medium Difficulty Print INGREDIENTS: 2 cans of garbanzo…

    Vegan Recipes for Fall (Sweet and Savory)

    PUMPKIN EVERYTHING has been my mindset of late. Most of my free time has been devoted to cooking, baking, and recipe creating. Since it’s colder outside, I naturally find myself in the kitchen more. Like all of the other food bloggers, I have many autumn recipes to share. Today, I have 10 fall recipes that I am particularly proud of. All are vegan as per usual and some are sweet and others are savory. Guaranteed to fulfill all of your fall food dreams. … PIN THIS FOR LATER ⇓♥ ~ Sweets ~ PEAR AND APPLE CRISP A slight twist on a fall favorite. This serves around 4-6 and it is…

    Vegan Hamburger Helper

    This brings back memories! As a kid, I had some sort of hamburger helper dish about once a week. I always looked forward to it. I haven’t seen a vegan version in grocery stores, so I decided to just make one up. This recipe is family friendly, easy, and it’s great comfort food. I hope you enjoy it! Pin This ↓ Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Difficulty: Easy Cuisine: American, Vegan Printer Friendly Version Here Ingredients: ½ box of whole wheat macaroni or penne pasta. 1 block of Daiya Cheddar Cheese or other preferred vegan cheese. Meatless crumbles or other vegan meat (I used half a package).…

    High Protein Breakfast Recipes // Vegan

    “But where do you get your protein?”. Immediately roll my eyes. Every vegan hates this question because nearly every whole plant food has protein. “But Kaley…What about essential amino acids?”. If you eat a variety of foods, then you have nothing to worry about. The only time you wouldn’t get an adequate amount of protein is if you are starving yourself (eating well under 1000 calories). Every vegan on the planet probably hears comments or questions like these. Most people don’t realize that plant-based foods/meals can still be high-protein. I try to eat higher protein in the morning because my days are busy. I do not necessarily recommend a high…

    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…
