Crispy Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Some foods need a little extra love to make them taste good. Brussels sprouts are one of those foods. They tend to get a bad rap, as people always make jokes about how bad they are. The truth, however, is that brussels sprouts can be really tasty, as long as you prepare them correctly! The…

Vegan Tempeh Bacon

There’s a million responses I get when I tell people I’m vegan, but the most annoying one is when people say “But what about bacon?” Honestly, it’s incredibly rude to just discredit someone’s beliefs with a joke. Most ethical vegans care very deeply about animals and don’t feel that this topic is a laughing matter….

Oil-Free Black Bean Dip

The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and you know what that means: snacks! If you’re anything like me, there’s only two reason to watch the big game, and neither of them has to do with football. The first reason to watch the Super Bowl is the commercials, which are always quite entertaining. The…

Rosemary Cornbread Muffins (Vegan/Gluten-Free)

Lately, with the cooler weather, all I’ve wanted to do is cuddle up in front of the fireplace with a blanket, a good book, and a mug of my pumpkin spice hot cocoa. The chilly temperature is giving me all the cozy feels! Of course, another thing I’ve been doing now that it’s fall is…

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

We all know that French fries aren’t that good for us. They’re deep fried in unhealthy oils, have almost no protein, and provide little in the way of nutrition. Unfortunately for our health, they taste so good! Because of this, many people have tried to replace fries with a “healthy” alternative at one point or…

Moroccan Spiced Roasted Baby Carrots

I love eating raw carrots, but I have always hated cooked carrots. They just always seem mushy and too sweet, especially the honey-glazed carrots that are served at Thanksgiving. Unless it’s dessert, I do not want any added sweetness in my foods. Marshmallows and brown sugar on sweet potatoes? Gross. Regular roasted sweet potatoes? Delicious!…
