Vegan Pecan Bars

This festive recipe is posting just in time for you to add it to your shopping list for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or whatever else you want to call your up coming holiday food fest. I was planning on making a Vegan Crumble Top Apple Pie to take with me to my in-law’s Thanksgiving day lunch, but…

Apple Maple Bread (V/RSF)

To be perfectly honest this recipe was created on a whim. I usually have a recipe idea in mind for at least a week, if not much longer, before I even test it. With this one I got the idea, drew up the rough draft, tested, and photographed all in the same day. It sure…

Alfredo Pasta with Peas & Sun-Dried Tomatoes (V/GF/NF)

This recipe is the beautiful result of me having to get creative with the few ingredients I currently had in the house, to make myself something for lunch earlier this week. I needed to go grocery shopping but didn’t have the energy nor the time that day (who can relate?). The sauce is based off…

Roasted Garlic & Spinach Pinwheels (Vegan)

This is a super flavorful recipe that is perfect as an appetizer, side dish, or in place of dinner rolls, especially for Holiday parties.  With only 5 main ingredients plus 2 optional ones, this recipe is a winner for all Holiday events. I made this recipe with a peter rabbit themed baby shower that I…

Dark Chocolate Almond Brownies (V/GF/RSF)

This recipe is a healthier alternative to get your brownie craving fix, opposed to eating brownies loaded with tons of refined sugar, dairy and gluten.  While these may be “healthier” then the traditional brownie they are just as tasty. These Dark Chocolate Almond Brownies are; Rich Super Chocolatey Nutty Vegan Gluten-Free & Refined Sugar-Free I…

Creamy Mushroom Risotto (V/GF)

Mushrooms are definitely an acquired taste. Honestly, I didn’t like them very much until after I became a vegan. Once vegan, mushrooms became my main meat substitute. I tried them in so many different meals, burgers, lasagnas, soups, enchiladas, tacos, and so much more. One of my early vegan favorites was stuffing portobellos with navy…

Roasted “Turkey” Seitan Sandwiches

  This recipe starts with making a juicy, and garlicky,  Roasted Turkey Style Seitan from scratch. Raw seitan isn’t the most appealing thing to look at -as you can see from mine pictured below- but it is a tasty alternative to eating meat. I could have probably spent more time on rolling my dough into…

Roasted Vegetable Pasta (V/GF)

This is one of my new favorite weeknight dinners. It can be made in 30-Minutes, super easy, filling, and loaded with veggies. Oven roasting vegetables is my most favorite way to cook vegetables and I LOVE pasta, so why not combine the two? I decided to go with a sun dried tomato sauce that is…

Healthy No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecakes (V/GF/RSF)

The taste of pumpkin pie without all the sugar and guilt of eating something unhealthy, yes please! I have been trying to cut back on sugary treats as of lately which is SO difficult for me, curse this hereditary sweet tooth. Creating healthy little sweet treats like this one has definitely been helping a ton….

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….
