Vegan Split Pea Soup

On February 27, 2016

I’ve been making so many soups and curries this winter because they’re so great to start in the morning and just continue to add stuff throughout the day. I’ve noticed that I do this a lot more now since working from home. I can wake up, start a pot of beans, add some veggies an hour later, etc. But don’t…

Italian Homemade Bread (breadmaker recipe)

On January 29, 2016

Β My boyfriend’s mom gifted me a bread maker and I’m so obsessed with it! I’ve made bread before in the regular oven, but I’ve always had mixed results. Not to mention how messyΒ bread makingΒ can be. But this bread maker changes all of that!! You just throw in the ingredients, pick what bread you want to make, and voila! Amazing homemade…

Turmeric & Cinnamon Good Night Milk

On January 28, 2016

I made some delicious turmeric & cinnamon milk the other night. I know what you’re probably thinking “turmeric milk, yuck!” But, this isn’t your typical golden milk. This is decked out to the max and basically tastes like a Starbucks latte that you can drink at night, before bed. Sometimes I like to google health benefits of whatever food I’m…

I just started writing down ingredients that I thought would work well together, flavors that I thought would complement each other, and am so happy with the way this turned out! Finding a good, go-to vegan mac and cheese recipe has been a…

Festive Mex Lentil & Rice Soup {BONUS: Leftover Burritos}

On January 13, 2016

I made this soup one night on a whim when I didn’t have anything planned for us to eat and boyfriend kept saying how much he liked it (he doesn’t always say that lol). It was very filling and tasty. I used lentils instead of black beans because lentils are so much faster to cook in a pot and I…

Easy Peasy Vegan Banana Muffins

On January 2, 2016

My mom used to make the best muffins growing up. I love that they’re not too sweet but just sweet enough to satisfy my sugar craving. They’re perfect for on the go breakfasts with a cup of coffee and you can sneak healthier ingredients in there like chia seeds, flax seeds, and more fruit. I used agave nectar and maple…

Creamy Thai Stir Fry with Coconut Milk

On December 1, 2015

The other day I made one of my favorite dishes I’ve ever made – this thai stir fry / curry hybrid. It was flavorful, creamy, and just insanely good. It was originally going to be a Chinese stir fry, but after tasting it, I realized I was craving something creamier and changed it up to be closer to a Thai…
