Vegan Sourdough French Toast

Sourdough is all the rage these days. The fermentation process makes it easier to digest than other types of bread, and it also yields more nutritional benefit. With the trend towards healthier eating, people are constantly looking for better alternatives to their favorite foods. Zoodles and bean pastas have replaced wheat spaghetti, smoothies have taken…

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…

Vegan Double Chocolate Muffins

Lately, I’ve been starting and ending each day with chocolate in some form, and it has honestly improved the quality of my life. You may think I’m making this up, but it’s true: chocolate is scientifically proven to make you happier! Apparently eating chocolate releases phenylethylamine (AKA the “love drug”) and serotonin in your brain and…

Vegan Avocado Quesadillas With Black Beans and Vegetables

When I was in fifth grade, my family took a cross country road trip. We traveled all the way from Ohio to California and back in the span of 18 days, all in our little Prius (I don’t recommend it). We drove anywhere from 3-18 hours each day, which, as you can imagine, drove my…

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…

The Best Vegan Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my favorite foods. They come in so many flavors and varieties, and they make it socially acceptable to eat cake for breakfast! Every Sunday morning, I make a vegan breakfast for my dad and I. Sometimes, my mom will join in, although she’s usually pretty skeptical of vegan food. However, there’s…

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,…

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re all having an amazing holiday season. Also, for my fellow students who are taking exams this week, I wish you all the best of luck! I know how overwhelming it is to study for finals, as I’ve been doing it all week. In the midst of my studying, however,…

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…

Easy Vegan Pumpkin Pie

  The holiday season truly is the best time of the year. There are so many fun traditions, like spending time with family, listening to Christmas music, and sitting by the fireplace. However, my favorite traditions are the ones that involve food. When I first went vegan, I was afraid I would have to give…
