Korean Fried Cauliflower Wings -on skewers!

Hi friends! It’s almost Super-bowl Sunday, meaning there will be a need for easy access snacks on that day. My favorite game day snacks are usually Buffalo or BBQ Cauliflower “wings”, Spinach Dip or guac and chips. If I’m really in the mood to cook I’ll make some Vegan Burgers for the whole family. When coming up with a fun appetizer for this year’s game I thought it would be fun to make some KOREAN FRIED CAULIFLOWER WINGS *inserts heart eyes*.

Orange Poppyseed Mini Loaves

Hello friends! Citrus season is in full affect here in California so I have been taking full advantage. This week at the farmers market I found some BEAUTIFUL locally grown Cara Cara oranges. First things first was to make a nice tall glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Secondly my mind went straight to baked goods (per usual) – que these amazing orange poppyseed mini loaves.I love lemon poppyseed muffins so I thought it would be fun to do a play on that recipe by switching lemons for oranges. Also no mini loaf is complete without a complimentary glaze on…

Vegan Sofritos – (Chipotle Copycat)

Hola mi amigas, today I’m here to share with you an easy, and delicious recipe for vegan sofritos. I recall that when I first became a vegetarian my boyfriend and I took a trip to AZ to visit his family. When we first landed we were STARVING and there were very few veg friendly options near where we were so we opted for Chipotle. (I was never a HUGE fan of them, but it’ll do in a crunch.) – so I decided to get a burrito with the sofritos and some other goodies, when we arrived to our destination…

Vegan Pecan Pie

So I know you guys didn’t think I would let the holidays slip by and not share a recipe for pecan pie! ( You know we love pies on this site.) I was debating for a long time whether or not I would share a recipe for vegan pecan pie or a regular one. When I worked for the clippers I would sell pies and cakes during the holiday season. My most requested pie from players and coaches was the pecan pie. It was literally addictive, it was what I would have previously called the perfect pie. UNTIL NOW, this…

I don’t know about you but cornbread is one of those side dishes that is very much needed for many meals. As a side dish for soul food, sopping up chili, or cut up into cubes served over milk. (<–yes that’s some real country sh**, but thats how my family gets down.)Just like most of the other recipes on this blog this recipe is super simple to make…
