Animal Style Patty Melt

I grew up eating at a lot of diners, and one of my favorite things to order was a patty melt.  It's like a burger and a grilled cheese sandwich all in one... like how much better could you make it?  I wanted to make a vegan recipe for a patty melt but wanted to [...]

Tahini Stuffed Dates

I don't know about you, but dates are one of my favorite things to snack on.  They're like an all natural caramel candy & are so delicious.  Sometimes I get bored eating dates by themselves, so I like to try out random combinations of things with them... and when I created these a few weeks [...]

Breakfast Sandwich with Sriracha Maple Syrup

Who doesn't love a good breakfast sandwich?  They're one of my favorite foods, and are so versatile.  You can make it on toast, a bagel, or English muffin, with whatever fillings you'd like... really giving you the power to fully customize it to your liking.  I always like a classic "sausage, egg, & cheese on [...]

Rosemary Maple Broiled Grapefruit

I'm usually the type of person who likes big hearty breakfasts consisting of full platters with tofu scramble, toast, sausage, pancakes, etc.- so getting me to indulge in a 'healthy' breakfast isn't always appealing to me.  One of the only things that gets me are these broiled grapefruits with rosemary maple glaze & a side [...]

White Chocolate Pistachio Granola Bars

So I'm going to be honest with you guys...  I've never made granola bars before.  Ever.  It seems like something that people make all the time, but I don't eat them very often so never thought about making my own.  My boyfriend on the other hand... he eats them on a daily basis.  I was [...]

Garbage Plate

Right out of high school, I lived in Rochester, New York for about 2 years.  If any of you are from Upstate New York, you've probably heard of the infamous Garbage Plate.  The perfect late night drunk / early morning hungover meal consisting of macaroni salad, home fries, chili meat sauce, either 2 cheeseburger patties, [...]

Vegan Cheese Board

With Super Bowl Sunday approaching, I wanted to create a recipe for you guys that's something you can easily serve to a party full of guests, but still is fancy and decadent at the same time.  I know at Super Bowl parties you usually find things like dips, sliders, and finger foods... but how awesome [...]

Crispy Tofu Tacos with Cilantro Avocado Pesto & Chipotle Mango Salsa

Now that it's the new year, I know a bunch of you are looking for super healthy recipes that pack a big punch of flavor.  Tacos are a go to for me, because you can make them healthy very easily, and you can put just about anything you have lying around in them.  I wanted [...]

French Onion Burger

Have you ever had a craving for French onion soup & a burger at the same time?  I have, and well, that's how this recipe came about.  I've always loved French onion soup, I mean, who doesn't, but I never have found it to be filling enough for a whole meal.  Combining these flavors into [...]

Honey Mustard Pretzel Turkey Burger

Growing up, one of my favorite snack combinations was pretzel sticks dipped in honey mustard.  They just make the most perfect pairing, and I could literally eat them all day.  I already created a recipe using The Abbot's Butcher's Turkey Burgers on here, and I wanted to create another one to show how versatile they [...]
