Vegan MoFo: Spiced Sweet Potato and Greens

     Today's prompt is everything that I love about this time of year: SPICES! Not that spice...      I love warm spices.  They always seem to find their way into my recipes in some form or another.  I use cinnamon in almost everything.  As I developed a taste for other spices, I discovered… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Spiced Sweet Potato and Greens

Vegan MoFo: Bulldog BBQ Tofu Salad

     I think as vegans, we can all relate to Lisa Simpson on one level or another.  Whether you're at work, with friends or family, or at a wedding (ugh), you can bet that you will be in the dietary minority (unless you're only around fellow vegans all the time, which, congrats).  I get… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Bulldog BBQ Tofu Salad

Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Do you even protein, bro?      So today's prompt is asking how I get my protein.  I would imagine my question to this ever present question from non-vegans would be to show them a bit of a double whamey: a protein-packed breakfast. It's very difficult to come by vegan breakfast foods that are prepared… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

Happy Vegan MoFo, everyone!  I'm proud to say that I'm participating again this year.  I hope to contribute some solid recipes while following the prompts (somewhat, due to scheduling and general interest).  I couldn't, however, ignore the first day!  I love this idea: re-inventing a standard vegetarian option.  All too often, as many vegans know,… Continue reading Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

Date Carob Rock Cakes

     Rock cakes immediately remind me of Rubeus Hagrid, the lovable half giant from Harry Potter.  When I looked for a rock cake recipe ages ago, I was shocked to see how simple they were to make.  As a child, I always pictured rock cakes as something unappealing to eat that people always made anyway… Continue reading Date Carob Rock Cakes

Gluten Free Beet Orange Pound Cake

     It's been a while! 😊 After making some drastic life changes and moving (again), I've gotten back into the kitchen for more fun!  If anyone has been checking out my Instagram feed, you can see that I've been all over.  I'm exploring my new area's vegan offerings, seasonal produce, and local markets for delicious… Continue reading Gluten Free Beet Orange Pound Cake
