Simple Vegan Hot Chocolate

With flurries heading our direction already, it's time for hot chocolate. What took me ages to find online took my husband a whole google search to dig up, but while I wait for some vegan hot chocolate packets to come in the mail I made this quick fix. It's creamy, very chocolatey, and absolutely satisfied [...]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 [...]

Better Butternut Squash Soup

Better Butternut Squash Soup

Okay, listen. It's nothing against people who want just a big bowl of creamy soup, but that's just not a soup to me (unless we're talking tomato).

A lot of this recipe is similar to the Vegan Blueberry Cobbler recipe, but I did a little more than just swapping out fruit. First of [...]

Vegan Blueberry Cobbler

Peach? Blueberry? Cherry? In my opinion, you can't go wrong with a homemade cobbler, especially when there's a little bit more of a cakey top layer than you'd normally find. I'm trying to introduce the little monsters to more fresh fruits (other than just apples and bananas) and blueberries seemed like a decent place to [...]

Vegan Chip Dip

Vegan Chip Dip

When discussing my weight loss journey and the way that veganism played into that I get a lot of questions about whether or not I "miss" things, and also assumptions that vegans must never eat junk food. To that, I [...]

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 [...]
