IT’S FALL!

🙆🍁🍊 I even had my mom send me her famous pumpkin pie recipe! It’s not vegan, but I intend to make it that way very soon and of course, share it with you all as soon as it’s perfected! As soon as Ryli Ann gets up from her nap (because I wouldn’t dare do it … More IT’S FALL!

Becoming Vegan

The beginning of September will mark ONE YEAR for our family as vegans. It seems like it has been so much longer. It’s been fun and the best decision I’ve made, seriously. I feel as great as I can imagine I could at 25 weeks pregnant and I have a happy, healthy, and compassionate family. It felt like a good time to get a little into OUR story.  … More Becoming Vegan

Why WE Don’t Drink Other Animal’s Milk

When my daughter turned 1, the big topic of conversation became about milk. If we were vegan, she could never thrive without whole cow’s milk.  I mean, where on this big green earth could she get her calcium, proteins, vitamin D, and fats from? She needed these things to survive and grow healthy and strong. Well, my friends, I am here to tell you a secret… not only do toddlers NOT NEED cow’s milks to grow into healthy children and adults, they don’t NEED ANY milk! … More Why WE Don’t Drink Other Animal’s Milk

Substituting with VEGAN Food Alternatives

You can have all of your favorite meals while still being a vegan, seriously. Our family rarely eat salads… and we love salads! While some of the substitutes are still not necessarily healthy, they are still better than the alternative of animal flesh or by products, health and ethics wise. This is a breakdown of some vegan alternatives to some of your favorites! … More Substituting with VEGAN Food Alternatives

Loaded Vegan Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

If you’re from the south, you likely love sausage gravy, over some delicious buttermilk biscuits. If you’ve ever been to a Huddle House, maybe you’ve even had their loaded biscuits, which are quite similar to these… except these are vegan (and possibly even yummier)! 

This is actually a few separate recipes in one. You can use the pieces of them for other things, if you’d like, but this one is a true southern staple!  … More Loaded Vegan Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

Vegan Buttermilk Biscuits

This is going to be a quick and easy, but perfected buttermilk biscuit recipe. These things are so simple, with just a few ingredients, but are better than any other vegan biscuits I’ve ever had! I have to give credit where it’s due. This is actually Will’s recipe. Whenever we have these, I always make him make them, but he taught me this time. Probably so I’ll start doing it, but whatever … More Vegan Buttermilk Biscuits

Mushroom Roll Ups with Roasted Vegetables

Most of my recipes come from food from my pre-vegan days. This week’s recipe is inspired by Zoës Kitchen steak roll ups with their roasted vegetables and dipping sauce, one of my very favorite meals from before becoming vegan! Mushrooms are such a great steak alternative, because they soak up flavor so well, but also have a steak-like texture. … More Mushroom Roll Ups with Roasted Vegetables

Vegan Pumpkin Egg Nog

Egg nog has always been one of my holiday favorites, but I haven’t found a good one or a great recipe since being vegan. I’ve made a few, but they are never the right texture. Egg nog is thick and creamy and although some of the ones I’ve tried have tasted great, they have never gotten the creaminess quite right. Well, I figured it out you guys! … More Vegan Pumpkin Egg Nog

Vegan Mexican Rice

One of my, not so sweet, cravings this pregnancy has been Mexican food. Any and all Mexican food, really! Today I actually had my 32 week pregnancy appointment and you know where we went after? You guessed it! Mexican! So, I thought what better recipe to post than my go-to Mexican rice recipe? It’s rather simple, and sooooo good and filling! We actually make an entire meal out of just this recipe itself sometimes.  … More Vegan Mexican Rice

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

It has been one of those weeks. You know, when things just keep going wrong as soon as you fix the last problem. Yeah. We’ve managed and I haven’t lost my mind yet, but I haven’t really been focused on cooking and truthfully, Thursday just snuck up on me. Don’t you worry your little tails off though. I still have a recipe for you this week!  … More Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Vegan Eggplant Parmesan

Okay, THIS recipe has been anticipated and requested by so many that I had to get it up for you guys (and it was a great excuse to have it for dinner)! It’s seriously one of my favorite meals and even my meat-loving brother loves it! You can’t go wrong here!

Eggplant is one of those things that is hard to get just right. You have to get the bitterness out of it, but you don’t want it chewy or soggy. You have to find that sweet spot, right in the middle. Really it was a trial and error thing for me, but this recipe has it perfected, I swear by it!  … More Vegan Eggplant Parmesan
