Hi! I’m Amanda and this is my little family!
aaaand yes, we are vegan!
I am Amanda and I love playing around in the kitchen and testing my limits (there are none). It started from someone practically giving us a brand new, beautiful oven. It was broken, but I promised to learn how to cook if Will fixed it, so he did! We weren’t vegan then, but I also couldn’t boil pasta without somehow burning it…. so I’ve come a ways. I have a 2 year old daughter, Ryli Ann and a son, Benjamin, who was born at the end of November 2017. RA was actually the reason we finally took the plunge into veganism. We had done the research, but lacked the willpower to change our lifestyle (Becoming Vegan). It seemed like so much work. But, when my precious, innocent daughter started solids… I couldn’t bare the thought of putting what I knew to be so awful into her. We decided one night, gave everything away, went grocery shopping and never looked back. It has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made; for me and my family.
Besides being passionate about cooking and veganism, I am also passionate about motherhood. Growing up, I never saw myself as a mother… but here I am, doing it and feeling so complete. It’s hard, but oh so much fun! So, along with the recipes, expect to see some motherhood posts, whether they are vegan related or not.
I write this blog, mostly for myself. I enjoy writing and I also love getting the vegan message out there, whatever way possible. I just happen to enjoy cooking and feel like the best way to show you that the food we eat isn’t gross… and may actually surpass your expectations or fool you into thinking it’s not even vegan, is to let the world in on my recipes!
Feel free to contact me anytime! I will get back to you as soon as I can!
