Christmas Spice Cookies (V/GF)

As I sit here on my couch typing this up on my tablet, while watching Christmas movies, and munching on one of these cookies, there are snow flurries outside (snow in Texas, what the heck!?!). I can’t help but think, It can’t get better or more Christmas-y than “this”. These cookies taste very similar to…

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…

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.

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 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)

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…

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….

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,…
