Vegan Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

Cake is where it all started for me. I learned to bake before I learned anything else in the cooking world. It’s where my love for the kitchen began and it still is my favorite today. Partly because I am a sweet-loving gal, but also because it’s so much more of a reward when something you bake comes out scrumptious!

Hearty Vegetable Soup

Vegetable soup is an easy and delicious way to get your vegetable intake! There are so many benefits of a good vegetable-filled soup that I’d be here all day if I tried to cover it all! It’s just so hearty, comforting, and flavorful!
I have tweaked this recipe to perfection and you’ll, no doubt, believe me when you get a taste of your own!

Long Lasting Teething Cookies

The thing I hate about the “teething rusks” that you buy at the store are how quickly they fall apart. I mean, I understand why… nobody wants their baby chocking, but they don’t really do much for teething. A good, hard but also chewy, bar is exactly what a baby needs when they are cutting teeth. These will feel so good on their gnawing gums, keep them busy, and they love the taste!

3 Quick & Easy Vegan Breakfast Recipes

I am often asked about vegan meal ideas, but most commonly I am asked about breakfast foods in particular. These days, people are going, going, going. So many people don’t even eat breakfast because they “don’t have time”. Well, here I am, once again, to save the day!
I came up with 3 quick breakfast meals that can be put together quickly and even taken on the go, if needed.  Continue reading

Avocado Pesto Pasta – Zucchini noodles

About a week ago I posted a picture of some food I put together that actually came out to be a delicious and rather healthy meal that I just HAD to share! I am the queen at vegan-izing meals, especially the greasy, fattening foods I loved growing up! But with the summer creeping up on me, I thought I should also focus a little more on my health and a little less on making vegan fried chicken, you feel me? Continue reading

Fried Oyster Mushrooms

This is one of our new favorites, for sure! We had it twice just last week! I have no doubt in my mind that it’ll blow you away too! I used oyster mushrooms because they are the perfect shape and texture for a “fried chicken” copycat. They are big and hearty, but thin enough that they aren’t “mushroom-y”, if that makes sense. The breading is delicious and crunchy and just to die for!

Vegan Hushpuppies

I am going to be honest… this is a recipe that I usually would just whip up on a limb and it always turned out great. When we I decided to make it a recipe and measured everything, it seemed impossible to get just right. Isn’t it funny how life works that way? I honestly figured this would be one of the simplest and quicker recipes, but turned out to give me more trouble than I’m sure hush puppies are typically worth. But after making a million horrendous batches (after never having a bad batch before that), I couldn’t give up. They were daggum’ HUSHPUPPIES for that matter. Surely I was going to figure out what I was doing wrong.  Continue reading

Dairy-Free Whipped Cream

This is probably the easiest recipe to date. Just 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes and you have yourself some homemade, delicious, dairy-free whipped cream! This stuff is SO GOOD and easy that I made enough for all the desserts (15 cans of coconut milk worth!) last Thanksgiving and I had to make more for leftovers!

Yes, you can buy coconut whipped cream from the store, but you’re going to pay for it and truthfully… you won’t be saving much time either because this is SO EASY! Continue reading

Vegan Cornbread

I will start this by saying that this is not sweet cornbread. Will does not like sweet cornbread, and would probably prefer if I didn’t add any sugar to it, BUT you can easily just add an extra tbsp or 2 to make it that southern, sweet, cornbread, if that’s what you like. The extra sugar won’t hurt anything and the cornbread will come out the same, except sweeter!
On that note though, this has been my staple cornbread recipe for a while now. I never measured anything before I decided I just had to share this recipe for the world. So, I made an excuse to make these with dinner so I could get all the measurements, just for you!  Continue reading
