Super Moist and Decadent Chocolate Vegenaise Cake...
So you might be thinking: “Vegenaise? In a cake?!” But trust me, this cake will seriously knock your socks off!!! Adding the vegenaise makes the cake so moist and fluffy, it’s pretty much unbelievable. I typically don’t do much baking, but it was my best friend’s birthday this weekend, and her favorite dessert in the world is vegan cupcakes. The reason I try to stay...
Veggie 'Chicken' Sausage
Ingredients: 1 cup veggie broth 1 tablespoon soy sauce ½ teaspoon liquid smoke ½ cup TVP Optional: you do not need to add the above ingredients to the recipe, the sausages turn out fine without them, the TVP just gives them a meatier texture. If you choose not to add the TVP, omit the ingredients above and start at step two in the directions. 2 cups garbanzos beans, made into a smooth paste (I do...
I'm in Love...with Thailand
I just got home from my backpacking trip in Thailand, and I’m missing it already. Whenever I visit a new place, even if I love it, I usually don’t make plans on going back any time soon because I’d rather explore some new places that I’ve never seen before. Thailand is one of the few exceptions. I want to go back…right NOW. The food, the people, the culture,...
The Lowest Calorie Eggplant Hummus
Ten years ago, most people didn’t even know was hummus was. Now It’s pretty much a staple item in everyone’s refrigerators. Rumor has it that McDonalds might even start selling hummus (God, probably the most unhealthy, genetically modified hummus they can come up with). Hummus is healthy, but it definitely isn’t low calorie. Most store-bought brands contain anywhere from 60-80 calories per...
Reduced Fat Vegenaise!!!
So, I’m not sure when exactly this new reduced fat Vegenaise came out, but I am so excited about it! Never in a million years did I ever think I would blog about mayonnaise (so not sexy), but it tastes AMAZING and has half the calories of the original Vegenaise. It’s seriously so good I could eat it by the spoonful (ok not really, but still). Even if you aren’t vegan, you should...

The Blessed Gardens (and Grandmas!)
I payed a visit to my beloved grandmothers’ last weekend (all 4 of them), and this is what I was sent home with. They all happen to have the most amazing gardens, and an overabundance of organic fruits and veggies! I have a lot of work ahead of me trying to figure out what to do with all of this. Lots of yummy recipes to come!!! This is the car-load of fruit and veggies I came home with....
Perfect Summer Squash with Fresh Pesto
With the abundance of squash growing in my grandma’s garden right now, I’m not sure why I haven’t been posting more squash recipes. This was made with all fresh ingredients from the garden. Even the walnuts were off my grandma’s trees. Ingredients 2 teaspoons olive oil 2 teaspoons of salt ½ medium onion, coarsely chopped 1 lb green and yellow squash, sliced 1 cup...
