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

Zucchini Fries

I don’t think this needs much explanation because zucchini is delicious, so of course if you fry it, it only gets better! These are so super easy and absolutely scrumptious! Continue reading

Ultimate Vegan Banana Bread

Not to toot my own horn here, but I have never in my life had a banana bread this good! I have worked and worked on this recipe to have it just perfect and I have no doubt that I have accomplished just that! You will not be disappointed! Not to mention, its super simple with only 10 ingredients (well, 11 with the walnuts.).

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, lol. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

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

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
