Why My Kids Aren’t Vegans

Why My Kids Aren’t Vegans

This has been a question that I've had to answer quite a few times since I went vegan. Are your kids vegan now? And the short answer is no, they're not. But if I think that veganism is a better diet, better for the economy and the environment then why on Earth would I be [...]

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). For me, soup has to have pieces of something in it like potatoes, onions, corn, celery, the works. That's why butternut squash soup recipes that I've read in [...]

Vegan Hot Cocoa Cookies

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 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

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

This recipe isn't totally healthy but it certainly has a leg up on the competition. 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 [...]

DIY Oat Milk

DIY Oat Milk

Remember that little joke I cracked about not milking the almonds? Well, I may have milked the oats instead. The other day I was scrolling through a Facebook group when I came across a video from A Virtual Vegan on how to make your own oat milk. Now, I've always found making your own milk to be [...]
