Every vegan home cook needs a solid cheesy sauce that they can use for everything from nachos to burgers to pasta or even as a stand-alone dip. This is that sauce. We enjoyed it most recently over a Mexican Lasagna (recipe coming soon). Best part is […]

Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots

Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots

Leek and potato soup.  Whether you add the carrots or don’t (they do add a nice pop of color), you just can’t beat this type of soup, especially on a cold and rainy day like the one we’re having here today. These are the days […]

Dairy-Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

Dairy-Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

Today is the first official day of fall which means it’s time for all-things pumpkin! Which makes me think… Have you started your fall decorating? Is there a “rule” regarding when to do that? I’ve heard some say Labor Day weekend but that just seems […]

We’re on a smoothie kick lately and they’re not just for breakfast anymore. We’re making smoothies after dinner and enjoying them as a healthy dessert! And this vegan version of the classic strawberry and banana smoothie is definitely one of our many new favorites!
