Vegan Carob Sunflower Seed Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Dairy-Free Carob Sunflower

This dairy-free ice cream recipe is for the carob lovers, or the carob-curious. ‘Cause if you think carob is an inferior imitation of chocolate, you’ll be mightily disappointed (and I won’t be offended if you use cacao powder instead of carob). And all you carob fans: Can I get a ‘whoop whoop’? Maybe an arm […]

Ice Cream Friday: Vegan Dulce de Leche

I am a firm believer that cooking food from scratch is far less expensive than eating out or buying prepackaged foods. In my e-book Healthy Eating on a Budget, one of my top recommendations to save money is preparing meals at home. But the exception to that rule? Homemade vegan dulce de leche ice cream. […]

Ice Cream Friday: Dairy-Free Matcha Chip

I decided there aren’t enough dairy-free ice cream recipes on this blog, so I’m going to remedy that by instituting ‘Ice Cream Fridays’. ‘Cause everyone loves ice cream on the weekend. This means I’m gonna burn through a whole lot of coconut milk and maple syrup, but I’m totally okay with that. I usually lean […]

Passover Lemon Coconut Macaroons (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

Gluten-Free Vegan Ramen in a Mason Jar

Gluten-Free Ramen in a Mason Jar

Mason jar salads have become immensely popular and I think they’re a fantastic idea. And yet I’ve never made one because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a fan of raw salads –  and no adorable mason jar is going to change that. Then a few weeks ago, a friend posted this recipe for travelling […]

How to Make Dairy-Free Chocolate

There is a lot to love about chocolate. To state the obvious, it tastes incredible and euphoric. The culinary equivalent of being rowed down a warm, breezy river at sunset by Ryan Gosling, if you will. Chocolate has a load of health benefits, too. It helps us relax, reduces inflammation, combats free radicals, improves our […]

Slow Cooker Vegan Split Pea Soup

Three-Ingredient Vegan Split Pea Soup

This easy vegan recipe came to be for two very important reasons. One, I was down to my last few scraps of produce in the fridge. And two, I wanted to create a recipe that our dog Daisy could also enjoy. You see, I’ve been trying to get her to eat more vegetables. Most dog […]

Gluten-Free, Vegan Avocado Toast

Simple Avocado Toast + A Vegan Omega-3 Giveaway

Writing a food blog pushes me to innovate and create, because I’m a creature of habit. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not the meticulous kind of gal who eats the exact same things over and over, like your ‘ol Gramps who begins the day with a bowl of oatmeal and a handful of prunes. I […]
