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…

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 from  the donut stand would hit me, and I would…

Rosemary Cornbread Muffins (Vegan/Gluten-Free)

I feel like cornbread is the underdog of side dishes. Many people favor biscuits or dinner rolls over cornbread, saying that cornbread is too dry and bland. However, I’d like to make an argument in favor of cornbread. When prepared correctly, it has a delicous buttery flavor, with just a hint of sweetness. Adding different…

Ultimate Vegan Mac and Cheese

If you’ve ever searched the internet for vegan mac and cheese, then you probably know that there’s tons of recipes out there. I’m guessing you’ve also noticed that they’re all extremely similar. They usually include cashews, some sort of orange vegetable (like carrots or sweet potatoes), and nutritional yeast. All these ingredients are blended up…

Vegan Pumpkin Graham Bread

There’s something so wonderful about baking during the autumn. The heat of the oven provides warmth on chilly days, and the desserts in the oven fill the house with a delicious smell, particularly when baking something with cinnamon in it. One of my favorite treats to make when I want the house to have that…

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies With Cream Cheese Filling

Carrot cake is one of the most underrated desserts of all time. The fact that it’s made with a vegetable turns a lot of people off, but you’d have to be crazy not to love the taste. Honestly, it’s pretty much exactly the same as spice cake, just with some carrots folded in. I’ve also…

Vegan Maple Pecan Cinnamon Rolls (With Maple Cream Cheese Glaze)

Lately, I have been watching a lot of TV, mostly the show Shark Tank. Although I’ve seen nearly every episode already, I’ve been continuously rewatching episodes over and over again. I’m obsessesed with the show, mostly because I hope to journey down the path of entrepreneurship one day. Seeing other entrepreneurs and the businesses they…

Fishless Tacos With Easy Vegan Sour Cream

Long before I ever considered going vegan, I went through a phase of pescatarianism. In fact, I avoided all meat (except seafood) for over a year after my dad made a joke about cows being hamburgers. Although I did eventually go back to eating meat – mostly due to my mom’s exasperation at having to…

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!…
