Hello & Happy Monday!!








With the new spring season upon us I thought I would feature a recipe round up encompassing concepts from 2017/2018 and some of my oldies! Out of hundreds of recipes, these are my top favorite 55 that scream spring to me!


From cookies to trifles, pancakes and pasta salads, I’ve got you covered!


Tutorials coming soon for some of my classics, stay tuned!





Rose Gummies

For those who crave rose, these gummies will be your saving grace this spring! The texture is a tad softer than the traditional gelatin varieties, but oh so fun to make!





Lemon Blueberry Cake

Everyone needs a staple lemon blueberry concept and this cake is mine! Quick, easy, fluffy, made with bananas, you can’t go wrong!






Tomatoes & “Mozzarella” Salad

There are no words for how much I love tomatoes and balsamic vinegar! For those that had an affinity for caprese salads, this recipe will make you swoon! 






Italian Pasta Salad

I once feared pasta, but it’s actually a wonderful medium to get tons of veggies on your plate and it’s very filling. Needless to say, I have 2 favorite pasta salads, and this is one of them! You can’t go wrong with this dish. It’s quick, easy, affordable, and good for any season!






Chickpea Tuna

Chickpea tuna salad is one of my go to’s no matter what the season. If you long for tuna salad or simply just love effortless recipes that are game changers, you have to try my staple Chickpea Tuna! (one of the first recipes I ever produced)




Lemon Poppyseed Zucchini Bread

Poppy seeds are one of the few foods that I have an aversion to. I took the Pinner Test and tested positive for not having the enzymes to break down poppy seeds. Perhaps it’s a good thing I don’t bake with it a lot lol, but this loaf is worth it! I’m going to be remaking this one asap as it was so good!






Quinoa Falafel

So easy, flavorful, crips and packs quinoa! If you need a staple falafel recipe, this is it!





Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes

If you love champagne, this recipe will be your new best friend. Perfect for spring and a breeze to make!






Raspberry Almond Scones

I never really was a scone person, until this recipe! This was one of the first scone recipes I explored and it was featured in Thrive magazine. These are flourless, quick, easy, packed with flavor, and I loved the texture! I’m going to be testing some new varieties and perhaps creating a new tutorial for this one. Stay tuned!




Sour Citrus Peels

So easy, sweet, and sour! So easy to make, wonderful for  spring and makes for the perf homemade gift!






“Lobster” Roll

I’m actually remaking this recipe today as it’s ne of my personal favorites and I wasn’t crazy about the images or tutorial. It’s a game change, hands down!






Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

This recipe is one to always have on hand. It’s packed with flavor, carrots, golden raisins, pecans and just so easy! 





Italian Quiche

Just like scones, I was never a quiche person lol. The quiche era I feel like was a midst the 80’s and 90’s and today you see it less and less. However, I love a homemade crust (I don’t do crustless quiche), you can pack it with tons of veggies, it’s tofu based, aesthetically pleasing, filling, and one of my favorite concepts! I’m working on a new one this week!







Tropical Quinoa Granola

Packed with all of my favorites, quick, easy, packs quinoa, you can’t go wrong with this granola! A must try!






Lemon Lavender Pound Cake

If you know me, you know I love all things lemon. If you know lemon, you know it pairs perf with lavender!  Light, fluffy, flavorful, and easy, you have to try this cake!






Coconut Lemongrass Soup

This recipe was also featured in my prior round up, but it’s been revamped recently, and just oh so good! If you love lemongrass soup, this one will be a game changer for you. Packed with veggies and noodles, it’s filling and so easy!







Romaine Wedge Salad w/shiitake bacon & homemade blue cheese dressing

Made with my homemade tofu feta and shiitake bacon that are perf for countless recipes, a must try! 






Eggplant BLT with basil aioli

My first try at eggplant bacon and this sandwich came out so good, I made it multiple times within the same week. A must try!






Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

If there one concept that is just seamless with endless options, it’s a fruit crisp! If there is one flavor combo that resonates with spring and summer, its strawberry and rhubarb! This recipe needs no explanation and I guarantee a new tutorial is coming because I could make this, again, and again, and again lol. 




Caramelized Onion Tart

Last year I discovered that frozen pastry dough is actually considered vegan! While I love danishes, I’m a sucker for savory concepts with pastry dough! What’s fab about this recipe is that it combines both savory and a hint of sweet with the onions! 





Key Lime Pie Cheesecake

After seeing countless cashew cheesecakes, I wanted to venture outside of that to explore tofu varieties. It’s both accessible, affordable and creates the perfect cheesecake texture without having to freeze it! Rich with lime and a graham cracker crust, this recipe is a staple!




Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish

A midst my danish obsession, I had to explore a raspberry cream cheese option. As you would imagine, it’s just as amazing as you would imagine! If you love quick and easy recipes that can literally be thrown together in minutes, you’ll be head over heels for this recipe!






Peach & Blueberry Galette with thyme

I would equate a galette with a fruit crisp! It’s so quick and easy, gorgeous, the options are endless with the variations you can do, and pairs seamlessly with ice cream! I’m going to produce another tutorial for this dish as is it’s just that good!






Asparagus & Herb Cashew Cheese Tart

Another savory pastry dough concept that I just love! It’s packed with cashew cheese thats been infused with herbs and roasted asparagus is perfect for spring! Quick, easy, affordable, you have to try this!

This has to be my favorite cookie! It packs nuts, white chocolate, and dried mango. You can go wrong, you have to try this recipe! Tutorial coming soon! 






Lemon & Basil Blueberry Cake

We all know that lemon and blueberry go together like peas and carrots, but did you know that basil is the perfect addition to create another dimension of flavor? If you love effortless vegan desserts with intricate flavors, you’ll be crazy about this cake! (I am, I see myself recreating this tutorial as it’s such a good recipe!)






Quino Tofu Feta Salad

This recipe is one of those that’s a staple! I perhaps make this recipe at least 2-3x a wk because it’s just so simple. Packed with quinoa and greens, and  dressing that just ties it all in together.





Kale Brushcetta

Traditional bruschetta, but packed with kale! Easy, perfect for any season, and an all around pleaser for vegans and non vegans. I make tis recipe at least once a week!





Kale Caesar Pizza

I know what you’re thinking, don’t mess with pizza! However, this quick and easy concept is just as good as the typical fresh slice! Garlic crust, piled high with kale, homemade caesar dressing and shiitake bacon, my husband even loves this recipe! A must try!





Vegan Crab Cakes

This recipe was created last year and remains to be one of my personal favorites! Quick, easy, and tastes just like a crab cake!

Packed with cake, tofu pudding and fresh blueberries, it’s what dreams are made of! Simply layer the ingredients and serve! I definitely see a new tutorial coming for this dessert as it’s just so good!






Pineapple Upside Down Cake Trifle

I love pineapple, but ironically haven’t used it but in a handful of recipes. If you love pineapple upside down cake, but are craving a lighter less cake like approach, you have to try this trifle! Piled high with coconut whip and pineapple and literally just typing this is making me crave it! (I see a remake in my near future!)






Peach Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe is so quick and easy and makes me crave it just typing about it! When peach season comes in May, be sure to try this recipe! Tutorial coming soon!






Lemon Blackberry Trifle

Ok, I know what you’re thinking, that’s a lot of trifles lol. However, I’m a sucker for coconut whip, fresh cake and fruit! If you love simple dishes, blackberries, and notes of lemon this recipe is a keeper!





Matcha Madeleines

I don’t know “matcha”, but I think I had madeleine cookies only perhaps once while in NYC at a restaurant, they were amazing! However, you don’t really see them at the market or on menus and in many ways they are overlooked, but they are oh so good and oh so easy! If you love matcha, effortless recipes that will make you look like an iron chef, this is for you!





Strawberry Rhubarb Cheesecake

While going through my tofu cheesecake phase, I had to pay homage to the classic combo of strawberry and rhubarb! This cheesecake had the perfect crust, flavor, texture, aesthetics, and is something I could make ever season! If you love this combo like me, this will blow your mind!




Blood Orange & Thyme Olive Oil Cake

Once upon a “thyme” I hated orange anything. However, today I love to throw citrus into everything. Citrus also pairs seamlessly with thyme, making this cake one for the books! It’s quick, easy, gorgeous, and I can’t wait to remake it just for new images and video!. 






White Chocolate Blueberry Cookies

So basic and so so, amazing! I love dried fruit in cookies and the white chocolate just puts this cookie at the top of my list! Simple recipe, screams spring, you’ll love it! 





Citrus Pizelles with Coconut Lime Whip

Last year I explored the world of Pizeelles! I was always intrigued by them. You can make them sweet or savory, they have aesthetic appeal are a breeze to make, but you will need an iron to produce them. If you love light and crisp sweets, fresh coconut whip, and the perfect spring dessert, you have to try this recipe!






White Chocolate Key Lime Pie Bars

It’s key lime pie with the classic graham cracker crust, sans tofu or cashews, features white chocolate, and is just a fun take on the classic version, a must try!





Avocado Pesto Pasta with shiitake bacon

Effortless avocado based pasta sauce and crips shiitake bacon! Throw in some asparagus spears and you have the perf spring pasta dish!






Matcha Crepe Cake

I don’t know matcha, but this recipe came out so gorgeous that it’s one of the top viewed recipes on EDS!  Back in 2007 I had a love for crepe cakes. They were lighter than traditional cake, had more of a whipped filling than heavy icing, which I prefer and it’s just my cup of tea. Last year I decided to create this beauty and I’m just so glad I did. It can be challenging to make the perfect crepe depending on the composition and the pan you’re working with, but it’s oh so worth it! A remake is coming and so many more crepe concepts as well, stay tuned!





Lemon & Rosemary Olive Oil Cake

This cake has to be my #1 when it comes to the bundt cake molds. While citrus goes also with thyme, rosemary “takes the cake” when it comes to this category. I’ll absolutely be remaking this beauty to capture new images and perhaps a new tutorial, stay tuned!
