Vegan Blueberry Cornmeal Cake

Blueberry Cornmeal CakeThis blueberry cornmeal cake has really been a recipe in patience. In the end it almost turned out to be humorous. Actually, I guess it was pretty darn funny along the way.

The last time Eric’s mom was in town she took us to a little cafe that I had been wanting to go to for ages, Huckleberry. I was super excited to try it out and of course it didn’t let me down. While at Huckleberry we tried a blueberry cornmeal cake that is popular there and I fell in love. The recipe was in the Huckleberry cookbook that my mom bought me, but is not a vegan recipe. So alas, I set out on a quest to alter this recipe to be vegan friendly. Continue reading

Vegan Tofu Scramble

tofu-scrambleI had this tofu scramble planned for breakfast this weekend, but we ended up not needing breakfast. Eric had the brilliant idea to make the scramble into breakfast burritos and save them for weekday breakfasts! This was an amazing idea. We are usually so slow to get out of bed in the morning. We try to get every last second of sleep we can and generally end up only taking 15 minutes from getting out of bed to walking out the door. Already prepared breakfasts are really our go to. 80% of the time we eat overnight oats because they are just so darn easy. I see a change in our horizon with these breakfast burritos!

Rum Balls Recipe – Vegan

Rum ballsWho doesn’t love rum balls?! Combining rum and chocolate is like the ultimate dessert, right? These vegan rum balls were actually inspired by a complete failure in the kitchen I experienced last weekend. We’ve been watching the olympics the past few weeks and I was inspired to try to make a traditional brazilian dessert, brigadeiros (but make them vegan). They are usually made with butter, sweetened condensed milk and cocoa powder. I recently found vegan sweetened condensed coconut milk in Sprout’s and really wanted to use it in a new recipe. Brigadeiros just seemed perfect. Continue reading

Vegan Enchiladas

Vegan Enchiladas
We’ve been on a Mexican food kick lately and I think these vegan enchiladas are my favorite so far. I don’t really like the vegan cheeses that you can buy from the grocery store so I decided to stuff these with with a potato filling and a tofu filling. Let me say that these enchiladas really hit the spot.

Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake Bites

Cheesecake Bites

Since getting  back from Brooklyn life’s busy busy busy and these cheesecake bites were the perfect quick and easy treat to satisfy my sweet tooth! After dinner my taste buds beg for a little bite of sugar, so we are constantly looking for new treats that are easy to grab. When we don’t have anything planned we usually just default to cashew ice cream, but it is nice to switch it up. I really like these bites because the filling is super creamy and a chocolate coating makes everything better! Continue reading
