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…

Pulled Mushroom Barbacoa Tacos (V, GF)

This recipe is my vegan version of Barbacoa Tacos, made with pulled mushrooms! I worked on this recipe (in my head) for about a month before actually attempting to make it, mostly trying to figure out what kind of mushrooms I wanted to use. I decided on portobello mushrooms because they are available in most…

Bar-B-Q Jackfruit Sandwiches with Crispy Fried Onions (V, GFF)

Good-ole Texas barbecue, vegan style! When I think of good Texas barbecue I think of Stubb’s Bar-B-Q sauce so I used some in this recipe. You can of course try this recipe using any vegan friendly barbecue sauce of your choosing (be sure to let me know if it’s super delicious with any other brand)…

Vegetable Fried Rice (V, GF)

Simple, easy, and delicious recipe this week. This Vegetable Fried Rice pairs great with last week’s recipe Sesame Cauliflower. I’m usually partial to white rice since it cooks up faster, but white rice causes more of an insulin spike due to its very low fiber and fat content. Brown rice also increases insulin release, but…

Sesame Cauliflower (V, GF)

This is by no means is a “healthy” recipe considering there is frying involved. I tested several different batters for the cauliflower and cooked them in the oven which would have been a healthier choice but none of those oven fried batters turned out the way I was really wanting. I was wanting this Sesame…

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…

Jalapeno Cashew Cheese Ball (V, GF)

I am currently in vacation mode, and by time you see this post I will be halfway through my vacation. I really pushed myself and worked hard this month to make sure you would have a new recipe to check out even though I will be gone, so I really hope you love it. This…

Garden Pasta Salad (V, GF)

What inspired me for this recipe was I was trying to come up with a tasty lunch that my husband could take with him to work. For his job he drives around all day, rarely has a lot of time to stop for lunch, and always eats out. It is difficult for him to make…

Cracked Pepper & Olive Dinner Rolls (Vegan)

I’m going on a cruise in two weeks, I’ve been thinking and stressing a little over the whole food situation, as a fellow vegan I’m sure you can relate. They have done alright accommodating my diet in the past but I’m trying a new cruise line for this trip. On my last cruise I remember…
