Vegan Rocky Road Cookies

Chocolate. Marshmallows. Peanuts. Mini-chocolate chips. It really doesn’t get any better than this. Over the weekend our family really got into the spirit of fall. We made time to visit a local sanctuary where we had the opportunity to hang out with some absolutely beautiful animals. The boys filled their lungs with fresh, crisp air…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

A couple weeks ago when I went to grab a handful of groceries I found Nestle Simply Delicious chocolate chips that advertise they are free of the “eight major allergens.” Allergen-free is double good for me because that also means vegan-friendly. Now that chocolate chips are back on the menu, I have been baking a…

Vegan Hot Cocoa Cookies

Sweet, delicious, chocolate indulgence. Who said vegans can’t have cookies? Baking has always been a fun experiment for me. I love to try substituting all kinds of ingredients, playing with different combinations of mix-ins, and obviously recreating old favorites into vegan-friendly deliciousness. Ingredients: 1 cup vegan butter (Earth Balance Organic). 1 cup brown sugar. 1/2…

A Very Merry Mickey Mouse Birthday

Time to roll out birthday number two and with only one more big party to go it’s almost time to focus all of my extra time and creativity onto our impending wedding, which is only seventy-seven days away! Who’s panicking? Are you panicking? *Nervous laughter.* I wish there were more hours in the day, especially…

Vegan Favorites

Veganism is not what it’s cracked up to be (in the best way). When people find out that I am a vegan they start asking about what I eat, if I get enough protein and if I miss cheese. The truth is I have never felt better and my food choices are certainly not suffering…

Christmas Cookies

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house the kids were on a sugar high. Well, I suppose not just the kids, after all someone has to eat all these cookies and milk. I really wasn’t feeling the idea of trying and potentially failing at creating my own vegan cut out recipe, so…

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Nothing beats a homemade cookie, unless that’s a homemade cookie with minimal effort. This is the recipe for what I tossed together last night and believe me it’s worth the half an hour of your time it will take to complete. This recipe yields roughly thirty cookies (I would have a more appropriate count if…

Cookie Monster

Baking has been my number one hobby lately, partly because making my own is easier than searching for vegan store bought and partly because my kids won't stop asking for cookies. My sweet middle little, Baby J, just came up to me about an hour ago asking for a "giant cookie." I told him that…

Chocolate, Double Peanut Butter Cookies

My fingertips are stained a vibrant yellow from the turmeric I added to my stirfry and my stomach is filled to the brim with pasta and cookies. Though I have a headache waving in and out I still wanted to get this recipe posted. In recent years I haven’t had much of a sweet tooth…
