Cookies were definitely my favorite thing growing up - and making cookies for santa seemed liked a nice gesture and all but I really just wanted to make them so I could also have cookies on Christmas Eve.
Tacos… a genius invention. I was never a huge fan of tacos until about a year ago. Even now I don’t have them often, but I do find it’s a fun way to get people to try new vegetables and sauces that they might not have otherwise tried.
With Thanksgiving being 2 weeks away, I am getting all kinds of questions like, “Well, what do you do for Thanksgiving?” or “How do I stay on track and not feel miserable while also partaking in Thanksgiving festivities?”
This soup is incredibly filling which is nice for the warmer months or for when you want a simple meal to eat on throughout the week. It is a great addition to dinner parties and will leave your guests asking for the recipe!
Typically I am not a huge fan of traditional oatmeal because it often leaves me feeling heavy, but sometimes, overnight oats are the perfect in-between. You can have them hot or cold and tend to feel more filling and nurturing in the cooler months.
One of my first “challenges” as a vegan was to create a healthy, plant-based version of meatloaf. I tried and tried and tried until I finally figured it out with this bad boy. This recipe was actually published in the Vegan Food Share Cookbook back in the day.
If I’m being honest, I haven’t had traditional cheesecake in over 7 years, so I really don’t remember what it tasted like. All I know is that I have served this cheesecake countless times, and I have NEVER had anyone complain.
You know how sometimes you have memories from your childhood that make you want to eat certain things? For me, that's Alfredo. I've been vegan for 7(ish?) years and never once have I craved cheese, but I do have a soft spot for Alfredo.
If you'd like the inside scoop on my diet during the fall and winter, I hope you're ready to hear about a lot of soups and chilis, and I mean a lot. AND, you know what goes perfectly with chili? CORNBREAD.
This very well may be the absolute BEST dessert I have ever made, and no I am not exaggerating. It's rich, it's gooey, and is likely something I would take a bite of and think, "This has got to be so bad for me." But ya know what? IT'S NOT.
Though I love smoothies and salads, I also love soups and stews when the temperatures drop. When I first switched to a plant-based diet several years ago, this lentil chili is what got me through the winter, and it's safe to say that it is still one of my favorite Fall staples.
