Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies

Oops, wrong Whoopi! Ahh, that’s more like it. Oh carrot cake, how you fill childhood dreams. Wash away unrest in the contents of one bite. How you torment the ever LIVING HELL OUT OF A VEGAN, SUGAR FREE, GLUTEN FREE FOOD BLOGGER. Ehem… I apologize. It’s just, if you knew how many test trials of…

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

CCOOOOKKIIEESSS. Who doesn’t love cookies, right? I mean, sure, to some extent or another, we all try to avoid them – but only because we love them so much that if we eat one we’ll be tempted to eat a hundred. And we all know eating 100 cookies isn’t good for us. I’ll say it…

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins (Vegan & Gluten Free)

If there’s one thing I’ve learned through the process of creating this recipe, it’s that perfection takes patience and persistence. We made six test batches of these muffins before we achieved a recipe we’re proud of. SIX BATCHES. Do you know how many lemons & poppy seeds dedicated their lives to the perfection of this…

Tempeh Bacon

  Being the first type of “vegan bacon” I ever tried, tempeh bacon holds a place in my heart- a place that’s more satisfied by tempeh bacon than actual bacon. Growing up I always thought bacon was great on hamburgers, but if I were to order a plate of breakfast, sausage was my protein of…

Portobello Summer Tacos

These tacos are a fresh & vibrant invitation into a warm Summer. I understand that some of y’all may have been experiencing warm weather for a couple months now (#jealous), but I live in the Pacific Northwest, where the sun just made his first guest appearance a few days ago. Needless to say, we are…

Spicy Peanut Butter Thai Noodles

I’ve been craving Thai food for about a month now, and when I crave Thai food, I get Thai food. While I do love a trip to a take-out restaurant, I can’t always rely on them to deliver me a piping hot plate of noodles; I have to take matters into my own hands. With…

Easy Vegan Brownies (Gluten Free too!)

Writing a brownie recipe while contemplating a sugar-free diet is ironic, aye? None the less, brownies are essential to existence. Can you imagine living the rest of your life without having another brownie??? I mean, after all, chocolate was deemed “food of the Gods” by the Aztects. Surely, brownies are never to be eliminated entirely;…

BBQ Sloppy Joe’s (V + GF)

BBQ Sloppy Joe’s was the first dish I ever publicly shared a recipe for. This is a rendition of that recipe updated to fit the times: simpler, quicker, cheaper, tastier, not to mention perfect for family dinner or meal prep (lots of leftovers). I first fell in love with vegan sloppy joe’s after sinking my teeth…

Chai Toasted Oats (Gluten-Free & Stomach Friendly)

Oats. They’re the centerpiece of many a vegan food blog. To be honest, I haven’t caught the wave of hype yet. Two hours after engulfing a bowl of oats leaves me feeling like a blob of setting cement, AND they don’t deliver much in the department of texture or flavor (yeah, maple/brown sugar is cool, but…

Double Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Kim is fond of saying “I don’t like chocolate.” Well then, it’s certainly a curiosity why she couldn’t stop eating these cookies. Baking (and eating) these cookies on a rainy day, locked inside your house is a sure way to elevate the feng shui of your day – which is exactly the circumstances I created…
