Maple Pumpkin Pecan Scones (Vegan)

pumpkin pecan sconesHappy Pumpkin Day! It’s been a while since my last post, I can even believe that it is Halloween already.

What’s more fitting for Halloween than pumpkin? At dinner one night this week we realized we ran out of dessert (truly a travesty in this house). Eric suggested making these pumpkin cookies, but I realized we had been eating a lot of oats lately and thought it was time to switch it up. So these pumpkin scones were born, and really hit the spot for me. I still plan on making those cookies soon, though. They look delicious. Continue reading

Classic Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

choc chip cookiesWho doesn’t love classic vegan chocolate chip cookies? My favorite way to eat chocolate chip cookies is to dip them (while still warm) into a glass of almond milk. Mmmmm. My mouth is watering just thinking about these. Over the past 3 years I’ve tested out many vegan chocolate chip cookie recipes and this one turned out to be my favorite.  Continue reading

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

Strawberry Shortcake (Vegan)

Vegan Strawberry ShortcakeStrawberry shortcake is such a refreshing spring/summer dessert.

And I’m so excited it is finally summer! Summer time means strawberries and strawberries mean strawberry shortcake! When I was little my Great Grandma took me strawberry picking every year. We even went picking after she lost her leg to diabetes! We brought her a stool to sit on and her and I would crawl through the field picking and picking. I remember rummaging through the fields with the smell of fresh strawberries filling the air. After we picked to our hearts content we took our bounty back home to make strawberry jam. To this day whenever I smell strawberries I think back to those days spent in the fields and in the kitchen with my Great Grandma.

Eric and I usually make jam around Christmas time, so I wanted to make a cake during the summer instead of jam. And thus this vegan strawberry shortcake was born! The cake and frosting work perfectly together along with the fresh strawberries. Look at these deliciuos berries and creamy frosting!

Vegan Boo Bites – Pumpkin and Vanilla Cookies

boo bites

Happy Halloween! We had a great relaxing day. This morning we went to brunch at Humble Bee with some friends (it was really tasty) and enjoyed a nice meal. We ran a bunch of errands and then came home to chill. I love the fall(ish) weather we have lately so whenever we get home I like to open the patio door and light a candle.

We decided to get take out for dinner and watch a movie since we usually don’t get any trick-or-treaters. I decided we needed a little sweet snack to go with our dinner, and thus the Boo Bites. Originally I had planned to use halloween colored sprinkles to make these little cookies festive, but we couldn’t find any at the stores so instead I decided to make half pumpkin and half vanilla.
