Quick and Easy Vegan Corn Fritters

Let’s talk appetizers. Everybody loves finger foods, but for hosts they can be a nightmare. What can you make that everyone will enjoy? Does it fit the rest of the menu? Will it be too filling? Not to mention trying to please a wide variety of ages. If you are hosting a dinner that both…

Cranberry Oatmeal Scones With Vanilla Glaze

Does anybody else always seem to have a bag of dried cranberries in the pantry leftover from Thanksgiving? No matter what time of year it is, those darn craisins just continue to sit there. You don’t even remember what recipe you bought them for; you probably just threw a handful on a salad or something….

Banana Nut Pancakes (Vegan)

Pancakes are my favorite food of all time. They’re fluffy, sweet, and come in a wide variety of flavors! Not to mention the endless combinations of toppings you can add. Syrup, whipped cream, chocolate, fruit… you name it, I have put it on a pancake! Part of the reason I love pancakes so much is…

Sautéed Garlic Lemon Kale With Pine Nuts

I love vegetables. Bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes… they’re all so refreshing and delicious! There is one category of veggies I don’t eat too often though, and it just happens to be the most important: greens. Dark green leafy vegetables are great sources of nutrition, according to the USDA. They’re low calorie, yet packed with…

Blueberry Almond Scones With Almond Glaze (Vegan)

Scones are underrated. You see them at coffee shops, and maybe enjoy one with your afternoon tea if you’re British, but for the most part, they’re just not popular. I used to agree with the general consensus that scones are boring until, one day, I actually tried one. Panera was out of my go-to cherry…

Vegan Sweet Potato Gnocchi With Cherry Tomatoes

Have you ever heard of gnocchi? It’s a potato-based pasta that originated in northern Italy. I first tried during my middle school years, when I went on a European tour with my school’s choir. We didn’t visit Italy, but we were served gnocchi at one of our group dinners in Slovakia. I was hesitant to…

Vegan S’mores Tartlets

We may be in quarantine, but I’m still excited for summer. So what if I won’t be making any beach trips or attending any concerts? There’s plenty of summer activities I can participate in alone. Soaking up the sun, backyard campfires… don’t forget about s’mores! Nothing screams summer more than the combination of toasted marshmallows,…

Spicy Sesame Peanut Noodles (Vegan/Gluten-Free)

Hello everyone! So much has happened since my last post, namely the coronavirus pandemic. Here in Ohio, we have been in quarantine since mid-March. It looks like I’ll be finishing my senior year of high school from home! Though this whole situation is quite scary, it’s also an opportunity to take a step back from…

Tempura Green Beans With Soy-Lime Dipping Sauce

I was a picky eater as a kid. Foods couldn’t be touching on the plate, salad had to be dressing-free, and condiments other than ketchup were off limits. Despite my mom’s best efforts to get me to try new foods, I was set on eating French fries and PBJ sandwiches for the rest of my…

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…
