Vegan Protein Breakfast Smoothie

Since being on summer vacation, I've been reveling in my slow, lazy mornings. During this past school year, I was getting up at 4 am to get to the gym by 5. The gym I was training at is 30 minutes away and I needed all the time I could get to wake up fully… Continue reading Vegan Protein Breakfast Smoothie

Homemade Pasta Sauce

If you know anything about my family, then you know that on Sunday, we eat pasta. Growing up, I thought everybody ate pasta on Sundays. Apparently, they don't. But now you can enjoy pasta Sunday with a traditional sauce. When I started writing this recipe, I did so thinking of my sweet mother in law.… Continue reading Homemade Pasta Sauce

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). I've tried… Continue reading Vegan Quesadillas

Vegan Nice Cream

I wasn't really a big fan of sweets until my competitions last year. The cravings for sweets were REAL. No joke, I bought 4 different pints of the Non-Dairy Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream for after the shows. Ever since then, I've still had a bit of a sweet tooth. Every now and then, I… Continue reading Vegan Nice Cream

Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

This. Recipe. Is. Bomb. Let's be honest, I love anything that is cheesy, but this recipe really is delicious. It's the perfect, healthier alternative to traditional broccoli and cheese casserole. This recipe calls for  brown rice, broccoli, and one batch of my very versatile Plant Based Cheese Sauce. Lots of checks on Dr. Gregor's Daily Dozen!… Continue reading Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

Plant Based Cheese Sauce

I love finding someone else's recipe and trying it out. 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

Buffalo Tofu Sandwiches

I have been obsessed with buffalo tofu lately. It's been such a long time since I've had buffalo wings. I always loved the buffalo flavor, so it's nice to have a meaty, yet vegetarian substitute for buffalo chicken wings. This recipe is extremely simple and can be adapted to make patties (as shown below) or… Continue reading Buffalo Tofu Sandwiches

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

No, really. This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. I've hesitated to share this recipe. Not because it hasn't been thoroughly tested or because they aren't truly the best chocolate chip cookies. I've hesitated because I'm sort of known in my circle of family and friends for these cookies. I make them for most… Continue reading The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
