Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Layer Cake
Fragrant Vanilla Cake

I think I lived on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch for a while when I was little.  I didn't really like other types of sandwiches at that point (I hated everything with lunch meat, makes sense that I am vegan now) and they were just so darn delicious!  My Mom always bought raspberry jam the chunky kind with the seeds and my Dad would always buy strawberry.  But when I went over to other people's houses and had grape that was a real treat!  I just loved peanut butter and jelly!  So much so that when they came out with that goober grape jam and jelly all in ..read more

Coffee Chocolate Halva
Fragrant Vanilla Cake

Halva is something I make every so often when I am craving candy or something sweet. I first enjoyed some at a place local to me that makes it in all kinds of amazing flavors, then decided to try making my own, because I wanted to make fun flavors too!  Sometimes I make it with different types of nut and seed butters besides tahini, which changes the texture a little (they are all good, just different).  But this time I went with the classic tahini!  I love halva paired with a cup of coffee, so I decided to make a Coffee Chocolate Halva! Halva really isn't that difficult to ma ..read more

Vegan Cookie Monster Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had bought a purple yam and cooked it, not knowing what I was going to make with it.  It was pretty delicious, and it was tempting just to eat it, but it was so beautiful I thought it needed to be used in something.  I have seen people use them in recipes before to tint things a lovely purple hue, so I thought why not?!  I decided on cookies, not knowing that they would change color as they baked, and what I ended up with was these Vegan Cookie Monster Cookies!  That is what I am calling them, because Cookie Monster loves chocolate chip cookies and he is blue just like t ..read more

Vegan Almond Praline Cake

Around the holidays I like to make candy, things like peanut brittle and almond praline brittle are one of my husband Eric's favorites! I made some almond praline brittle last weekend, because I thought it sounded good, then I thought about how good it might be as an element of texture included in a cake!  It is so delicious and flavorful, like crunchy almond vanilla scented caramel.  So I decided to make a Vegan Almond Praline Cake! I already had the almond praline made.  It is really simple, you just melt sugar and add almonds, salt and vanilla and you get the most delicious ..read more

Vegan Peppermint Fudge

Fudge was always something that my Grandma had at Christmas along with all of the other delicious treats we only got once a year, and so I think of it as a Christmas treat.  It was just classic fudge with walnuts but she loved it and I thought it was pretty delicious!  I don't have the recipe so I am not sure how exactly it was made or what all it had in it, but I am pretty sure she said it was an easy recipe with sweetened condensed milk so when I decided to make vegan fudge for the first time this year, that is what I decided to make it with.  I looked at a bunch of different ..read more

Creamy Vegan Mushroom Wild Rice Soup

At pretty much every restaurant in Minnesota you will find some version or other of creamy wild rice soup, usually with chicken, and everyone claims that theirs is "famous" and the "best".  I tried a few growing up, and I never thought any of them were that great, except for the version that my Mom made, which was pretty good.  I now make my own version, Creamy Vegan Mushroom Wild Rice Soup and I think it is pretty darn delicious!  I always cook off some wild rice ahead of time because it takes a while, so it doesn't take a super long time to make.  Some people complain ab ..read more

You know what the perfect thing to do on a snowy day is?  Bake something delicious!  Which is exactly why I decided to bake brownies this week!  It literally snowed for 4 days, and although it is really pretty (so much prettier than the brown dead plants outside), I am so not ready for winter yet, and needed some cheering up.   So I warmed up my oven and whipped up some Fudgy Vegan Mocha Brownies! Although I love vanilla I have been craving brownies lately.  When it comes to brownies, rich and fudgy is the way to go as far as I am concerned!  That and the m ..read more

Vegan Churro French Toast Sticks

   Growing up I loved french toast sticks.  We would occasionally have them with school lunch (I never minded breakfast at other random parts of the day), and I thought they were awesome.  What kid doesn't like something that tastes like dessert for lunch after all.  I don't think I had had any since middle school, because that is when I started bringing my own lunch.  But I decided to make a veganized version of them last weekend because they just sounded good.  So I made some Vegan Churro French Toast Sticks! I had some good crusty bread on hand that I kne ..read more

I am a little obsessed with pumpkins and all things fall right now.  I already have a bunch of pumpkin decor, mainly glass and ceramic ones, but I just bought another one, and then I also bought some cute mini pumpkins because I have been walking past them on display at work and they were calling to me!  I am also loving all things pumpkin flavored! I have been making pumpkin spice lattes at home, and I just decided to make a delicious 6 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream last week!  It is still warm here, we are not yet into the chilly fall weather, so it is the perfect time f ..read more

Vegan Butternut Squash Maple Layer Cake

There was a chill in the air here, but then last weekend it shot up to almost 80F degrees in Minnesota!  I have been spending a lot of time outside running, walking and just hanging out because we gotta enjoy the warmth while we can before the snow flies soon.  But I am still enjoying fall treats and baking, and I think my favorite fall vegetable is anything in the squash family.  Pumpkin gets all of the love this time of year, but did you know that you can use butternut squash in delicious desserts too?  It is slightly sweeter than pumpkin, so it actually is really good i ..read more
