Fudgy Vegan Brownies

Fudgy Vegan Brownies

For me, a recipe needs to be simple and cost-effective. I also have zero desire to go grocery shopping or on a search for the ingredients that I need for a recipe. If you were to google vegan brownies, much like other vegan baked goods, you'll find that you need some rather strange ingredients. After [...]

Vegan Favorites

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 [...]

Plus, this time of year it's always best to fill up on vitamins and try to [...]

Almond Butter Shortbread Cookies

Almond Butter Shortbread Cookies

No rolling pins, no cookie cutters. This is a shortbread recipe for lazy bakers. Yesterday I decided that I was going to try my hand at vegan shortbread cookies and to my surprise when I looked up a traditional shortbread recipe, it was already relatively vegan friendly. That being said, I'm not a super fan [...]
