General Tso’s Tofu (V/GF)

One of -what used to be- my most favorite Chinese Restaurant dishes, made vegan! I’m lucky enough to have a plant powered Asian cuisine restaurant close, but it is a once a month treat to get to eat there, so I like to make my own versions for the in between. This isn’t the quickest…

Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lately my most favorite thing to do with cookie dough is roll it into balls, freeze them, and only bake a few at a time when I am craving something sweet.  It helps keep me from overindulging. Plus its great to have on hand when I have guest over, and want to make them a…

Southwestern Breakfast Bites (V/ GF)

I admit that I’m not a huge breakfast person -I like eating it but don’t like taking my time making it on busy days-, which is why I don’t have very many breakfast recipes that are not pancakes. I often will just grab a banana or make some oatmeal real quick, something quick and easy….

Cranberry Pumpkin Bread (V/RSF)

I am SO ready for fall and the sweater/ scarf weather, Holidays, and pumpkins spiced everything that comes along with it. Mostly I am just so over this extremely hot weather -not that the temperature drops down much during the Fall here in Texas- But I’m definitely ready for some relief. Here is a recipe…

Garlic Herb Almond Cheese (V/GF)

My husband and I have been talking about trowing a little wine and cheese party for a while now, our discussion got me thinking about vegan party food options but especially cheese options to go with the wine. I did make a Jalapeno Cashew Cheese Ball recipe a while back but I also wanted an…

Creamy Roasted Poblano Pasta (V, GF)

I started working on the sauce first, intending it to be a variation in dressing for a pasta salad recipe I made a few months ago, but still haven’t posted because it still needs some tinkering. Next thing I knew, I had made what tasted like a spicy Alfredo sauce. I may not have finished…

Soft & Chewy Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies (V, GF)

Sometimes I just need some oatmeal cookies in my life, in this case It was about 11 at night when I decided I really wanted to make- and eat- some. As with most of my baking endeavors lately I didn’t look for a recipe to use. I simply knew I wanted them to be thick,…

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits (V, GF)

I’ve been playing with the idea of making some vegan cheesy biscuits for a while now. I didn’t initially plan to make them gluten free, but when I went to finally test out the recipe I came to realize I was out of regular all purpose flour. Now, I could have easily have gone to…

Texas Style Avocado Toast

This week has been insanely busy at work and on top of that I have been helping my sister-in-law plan her baby gender reveal party, which I will be making a cake for this weekend. I’m super excited to reveal the great news to them! In all my busyness I almost didn’t have time to…

Thai Basil Tofu Stir-Fry (V, GF)

My husband took me out to lunch at a local Thai restaurant last week that was super delicious, and it inspired me to make something similar to what I ate there. This recipe is what I came up with. I seriously think I could munch on the pan fried Tofu from this recipe all day,…

Plant Power Bowl with Poblano Cashew Sauce

This is a delicious and healthy meal that is perfect for making ahead of time to pack up as weekday lunches. In my opinion it is just as delicious cold or room temp if you don’t have a way to warm it up when on the go, and there isn’t anything in the dish that…

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread (V, GF)

This Vegan, Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is delicious, easy, and is a ONE BOWL recipe! Yummy treat with very few dishes to wash after, yes please! At the very beginning of my interest in cooking (12ish y/o) I thought the idea of using zucchini in baked goods was so strange. That was until one…
