Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes

This is the first time I haven’t had a recipe posted at 8:00am (CT) on a Friday. This one is just a little late. I worked on this recipe the week before I left to go on vacation but I just wasn’t happy with the texture or sweetness of the cupcakes… I may be a…

Chia Chai Muffins (V, RSF)

This recipe is a result of one of my completely random ideas. I was thinking of how to incorporate more chia seeds into my diet because of the Omega-3s they contain. I already sometimes add them on top of my oatmeal but I was wanting something new to add them to. Somehow the idea for…

Pineapple- Coconut Scones (V, RSF)

When I was a child, around the age of 12-14, there was a small local bakery in my home town that my mother would take me to. It was our time to spend together just the two of us, It was definitely nice having some time with my mother without having to fight my three…

Vegan Coconut Mud Pie

If this isn’t your first time visiting my blog I’m sure you realized by now that I changed my blog name and web address. I changed the name to something I feel better defines my blog and it’s contents. I don’t think “Health Conscious Housewife”,  as cute as it was,  explained what my blog is…

Vegan Black and White Cake

THIS CAKE, I think that’s all I have to say…. but I’ll write some anyway 🙂 I came up with this cake recipe at least six months ago and I’ve been making this cake for birthdays and other family events since. It took me SO long to finally make it for selfish (maybe not so…

Peanut Butter Oat Cookies (vegan, GF)

These cookies… I’m literally eating one right now, they are currently a day old but still SO soft and just as delicious as when they were fresh out of the oven. I’m normally not a huge fan of peanut butter cookies, and in fact only make them when I am craving them specifically, which so…

Vegan Chinese Chews

I love December, because Christmas, Why else? The lights, decorations, shopping, Christmas movies (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is my favorite!), spending time with family, but most of all the FOOD.

Ooey-Gooey Vegan Lemon Bars
