I Just Don’t Think I Could Ever Go Vegan

"I just don't think I could ever go vegan." I honestly can't count the number of times I've heard this statement since going vegan. Just mention the fact that you choose to eat this way, or that there's no butter or eggs in the cookies you brought to the BBQ, and it's guaranteed that at… Continue reading I Just Don’t Think I Could Ever Go Vegan

Vegan Quesadillas

So as you may remember, I recently perfected a Plant Based Cheese Sauce. It's freakin' delicious and if you haven't tried it yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. Since I created that cheese sauce, I've been playing around with how it can be used in various recipes (see my Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole recipe).

The process of trying to figure out another chef's creation and customizing the recipe to my preferences (something I hope you do when you try out my recipes) is fun for me. That's exactly what I did when I tested Lauren Toyota's Nacho Cheese Sauce from… Continue reading Plant Based Cheese Sauce

My Vegan Story

I haven't always been vegan. Shocking, I know. But in all seriousness, I grew up eating some meat and TONS of dairy. Meat was never really my favorite, but I ate it if it was put in front of me.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

I love a good veggie burger. Anytime Kyle and I go out to dinner, that's the first thing I look for on a menu. Now that we live in a new town, it's like a game trying to find the best veggie burgers. The problem is, very few of the restaurants (only 2 so far)… Continue reading Black Bean and Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

Baked Oatmeal Varieties

A few weeks back I posted this recipe for Baked Berry Oatmeal. I am mildly obsessed with this baked oatmeal and have made it every Sunday for the last four weeks. No joke. It's that good. This oatmeal is the perfect make-ahead breakfast. I bake one batch on Sunday and that's enough to get me… Continue reading Baked Oatmeal Varieties
