Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

What is your favorite type of cookie? Are you a classic chocolate chip person? Or are you a double chocolate lover? Better yet, are you one of the rare oatmeal raisin fans? Personally, I answered yes to all of the above. I rarely meet a cookie that I don’t like! However, there is one cookie…

Vegan Taiyaki (Japanese Fish Shaped Waffle)

Are you team pancakes or team waffles? I like pancakes for an everyday breakfast, but waffles are definitely my go-to for special occasions. They seem more like dessert to me, probably because of waffle cones for ice cream, plus the rise of Hong Kong-style bubble waffles in NYC. Speaking of which, what is with those…

Banana Bread Donuts With Maple Glaze (Vegan)

Everybody knows what to do when bananas go brown: make banana bread. But is that really the only use for overripe bananas? Isn’t there anything else you can make with them? Yes, there is! Banana bread donuts are my current obsession. They’re quicker to make than banana bread, more portable, and well… they’re donuts! Who…

Vegan Zucchini Walnut Cake With Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Back-to-school season is upon us, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. Although I’m sad that summer is coming to an end, I’m also ready to get back to having a daily routine. Last week, I began my senior year of high school, and so far all is well. College applications and…

Fudgy Vegan Brownies

There are a lot of weird vegan brownie recipes out there. Black bean brownies, sweet potato brownies, and even zucchini brownies all exist… and they’re actually pretty good. However, sometimes you just want a good old-fashioned chocolate brownie. Something fudgy and sweet, with no secret ingredients. That’s where recipes like this one come in! Unlike…

Vegan Mango Coconut Mousse

During the summer, I hate turning on the oven. It makes the house way too hot, and it’s honestly just not worth it. I prefer eating cool, refreshing meals like salads, sandwiches, and wraps! The same goes for dessert: I’d so much rather have something cold than go through the trouble of baking something. My…

Vegan Strawberry Muffins With Lemon Glaze

Last week, I completed my school’s leadership program for juniors. To celebrate, everyone in the program brought in food, and we all had a big breakfast together. I signed up to bring blueberry muffins, since I knew I had a bag of blueberries in my freezer. But when I went to make the muffins, I…

Vegan Salted Caramel Pretzel Blondies

Salty-sweet desserts have been a subject of debate in my household for as long as I can remember. I have always loved anything salty- sweet, particular when caramel is involved. Salted caramel is my jam. My dad, on the other hand, is not a fan of salty-sweet desserts. He despises chocolate-covered pretzels and claims to…

Baked Pumpkin Donuts With Cinnamon Sugar (Vegan)

One of my fondest childhood memories took place during my family’s annual visit to a local farm, where we picked pumpkins, navigated through corn mazes, and went on hayrides. Every year, as we pulled up to the farm, the aroma of freshly made pumpkin donuts fromĀ  the donut stand would hit me, and I would…

Vegan Gingerbread Cookies With Royal Icing

Christmas is only 3 days away now, which means that in just 48 hours, it’ll be time to put out cookies for Santa and his reindeer! I’m not exactly sure where this time-honored tradition came from, but I sure am glad it exists, since making holiday cookies is one of my favorite winter activities. Today,…
