Vegan Milky-Way Ice-cream Bars

So, this recipe is so easy, and absolutely scrumptious! My favorite, pre-vegan candy bar was a Milky-Way and I have been craving ice-cream so badly lately, so what better than to make some milky-way ice cream bars? So, that’s just what I did!  Continue reading

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!  Continue reading

Vegan Cheesy Italian Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes and Broccoli

I remember coming up with this recipe on a day that I just didn’t plan anything and used whatever I could find around the house and it was a hit! (I know it’s hard to believe, but that doesn’t always happen.) I love when food just comes together so easily! I just adore pasta of all sorts, so we often have some on hand, and I had leftover cherry tomato and broccoli from earlier on in the week that I needed to use up. Everything else in this recipe are things I always keep stocked in the house.

Savory Vegan Mushroom Melt

This recipe started off by Will requesting a vegan version of an Arby’s French Dip and Swiss; one of his favorite fast food meals from our pre-vegan days, but I’m not sure it qualifies as a copy-cat recipe because I used mozzarella and a onion bun, but it is surely inspired by it and is even more delicious!

Vegan Almond Joys

I know, anoooother sweets recipe? C’mon Amanda. Aren’t we trying to be more healthy?
Well, you’ll be totally over it when you try these vegan versions of the candy Almond Joy!  You can thank me later. 🙂 One of my favorite candy bars from before becoming vegan was an Almond Joy, for sure, and I just loooove coconut.

This recipe is actually a staple at my family events because I always bring it. It’s so easy to make, includes ingredients that I usually have, and is just so delicious! Everyone always raves about them, so I know you’ll love them too!  Continue reading

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.  Continue reading

Perfect Vegan Brownies in Only 30 Minutes!

You didn’t think I’d start off with a big, healthy salad or something, did you? I hope not, because it’s brownies ALL THE WAY! Being pregnant has had my sweet tooth in overdrive. I won’t lie to you, I was just buying the Duncan Hines box of brownies and substituting the eggs with a flax egg and calling it a day. While they are delicious, there is nothing like homemade brownies and so I decided I needed my own recipe.

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! Continue reading
