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…

Chewy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you were to ask 20 Americans what their favorite type of cookie is, I’ll bet that at least 15 of those people would choose chocolate chip. For some reason, chocolate chip cookies are extremely popular in America. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a party or event serving desserts where there…

Southern Fried Okra (Vegan)

Have you ever shopped in the “ugly produce” section of your grocery store? If not, you should really try it sometime! Many smaller local stores offer discounts on misshapen produce or food that is a few days old. There is a local Amish grocery store in my area, for example, that has a whole corner…

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!…
