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 [...]

Sweet Potato Turmeric Soup with Zhoug & Crispy Green Garbanzos

It has been really cold in Los Angeles lately (I know, you're thinking it can't be that cold.. but for being used to the 80 degree weather here, 50s are pretty cold haha), and all I've wanted to eat are hearty, creamy, warming soups.  This one sure does deliver, trust me!  Creamy Sweet Potato Turmeric [...]

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 [...]

Carrot Cake Muffins with Cream Cheese Icing

Carrot Cake is always one of my favorite fall desserts, but honestly I've always been annoyed with how difficult it is to pass around and carry with you because usually it is very moist & can crumble easily.  I wanted to create something that was a little easier to bring to potlucks or holiday parties, [...]

Pumpkin Pasties

For those of you who don't know, I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan.  I've always wanted to try all of the delicious treats described in the books, and Pumpkin Pasties were always the ones I was most excited about.  If you haven't read the books, Pumpkin Pasties are essentially handheld pumpkin pies.  Now there is [...]

Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki

So in Buffalo we have the most amazing grocery store to ever exist... Wegmans.  Growing up, it was the primary place we shopped for groceries & they always had the coolest store brand items there that were so delicious.  I remember buying these Spinach & Feta Turkey Burger Patties from them when I was in [...]

Roasted Red Pepper Crescent Rolls

It's been a big craze around the internet that crescent rolls are 'accidentally' vegan, and I've been getting so many requests to make things with them!  I wanted to spice them up a bit, literally, and make them more unique & super tasty.  I stuffed these crescent rolls with some homemade roasted red pepper sauce, [...]

Tom Kha Gai Soup with Rice Noodles & Beech Mushrooms

I've always loved Asian Cuisine, the basis of it being some of my favorite ingredients.  Almost every dish has some combination of ginger, garlic, scallions, chiles, and coconut cream- and those alone are ingredients I try to use as often as possible.  Asian food also is so healing and beneficial nutrient wise, as its usually [...]

Blueberry & Salted Caramel Pancakes

It's been a rough week you guys.  To try and cheer myself (and hopefully some of you) up after this election, I wanted to treat myself to a nice breakfast.  I was just working with things already in the house, and decided to whip up some blueberry & salted caramel pancakes (trying to be pun-ny [...]
