Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

It’s been so long since I’ve posted and so much has happened! The past 6 months have been super crazy finishing up my dissertation, graduating, and starting a new job. But being so busy was worth it! Now that I have a steady schedule (and I’m no longer in grad school woo hoo) I’m hoping to make more regular posts.

No Bake Vegan Chocolate Pomegranate Cheesecake

I haven’t written a blog post in a while because it’s been crazy busy around here! I have created tons of recipes but can’t find the time to post them! I’m hoping after graduation it will get much easier to post more often.
I think the reason I’ve been so busy is because I’m consulting a few hours a week while trying to finish up a few projects and write my thesis. The good news in all of this is that I have finished the first draft of chapters 1 and 2 of my thesis. I usually leave things until the last minute so I think this is great progress.
Aside from working and writing I also try to take a breather every now and then and read a few pages of a fun book or watch a movie. Last July Eric and I bought season tickets to the Pantages theatre to see musicals. It has been really fun to go to musicals every now and then and just relax.

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

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!
