Pumpkin Risotto

Pumpkin Risotto

                  Hello & Happy Thursday!!         In all honesty, I think it’s been since 2007 that I first experienced risotto, and it wasn’t the vegan kind. If you’ve ever tried real deal, it’s amazing, rich, cheesy,..but heavy. While there are a myriad of vegan cheese options, some things are just hard to replicate.    A good risotto...

Gingerbread Loaf

                      Hello & Happy Tuesday!!           Believe it or not, I’ve never been fond of gingerbread. I don’t mind it, but I never craved it..    Until now that is!   While gingerbread cookies are a typical holiday go to, I find them to be too hard, dry, and harsh in flavor.

Vegan Green Bean Casserole

                    Hello & Happy Thursday!!         If there is one dish that was always a staple in my home growing up..    Its green bean casserole.      Whether it be the taste or appearance, I was not fond of this dish as a child.

White Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Pops

White Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Pops

                        Hello & Happy Tuesday!!           I’m truly not a cake person, as the texture of cake icing has to be “just” right. Too much icing and its too rich for me, not the right distribution of ingredients in a vegan cake and the texture can be too wet or too dry..      But if done just right, you can have...
