Vegan Jamaican “Beef” Patties

I’m going to start this post by saying no – I’m not producing these again.  It was fun while it lasted, but I no longer produce food in mass quantities for sale. That being said, a good friend of mine is slowly testing out plant-based food options and asked me if there way any way …

The Ultimate Tofu Scramble

Let’s be honest here, eggs are a hard thing to replace. And whenever I’m asked “what’s the thing you miss most now that you’re vegan?”, my answer is almost always eggs. They were always an easy go-to dish, and incredibly versatile.  But, knowing what I do about them, I prefer to let them be chicks, and …

Pumpkin Spice Cereal Bar Treats

Happy first day of Autumn! I’m celebrating it with a sick kiddo this weekend. So, to cheer her up, we decided to play around with these new Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and make a new cereal bar treat! Regular Cheerios are a go-to cereal in our house. They are vegan (obviously), low in sugar, and fun …

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Muffins (Gluten Free)

TGIF! For my kids, this means super-special treat day in their lunch.  I usually try to keep sweet treats to a minimum during the school week, but on Fridays, the kids get an extra yummy treat in their lunch.  And they look forward to it all week! Of course, extra special doesn’t have to mean …

No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Granola Bars

Ahh…the granola bar. A lunchbox staple since the beginning of time.  Okay, maybe not.  But definitely since the 80s when I was in school.  They’re self-contained, quick, kid-friendly, and nowadays, available in a million nut-free versions that are safe for school.  Sadly though, it can be tricky to find ones that are nut-free AND vegan.  …

No Bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

With back to school just around the corner, extra curricular activities starting up again, and the general easy-breezy-lazy days of summer fading away, I’m starting to prepare myself for the busy days ahead. Which, if you’re like me, means a whole lot of running (ok, driving) around shuffling little people to and fro, and constant trips to the grocery store, Walmart, etc., all while still trying to manage a career.

Morning breakfast rush, school lunches, after-school-on-the-way-to snack – all perfect examples of times where quick, make-ahead, healthy snacks (like these no-bake, low sugar chocolate chip energy bites) are a lifesaver.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

School mornings…they are just around the corner now.  And if they are anything like my house,  they involve a lot of rushing around  trying to get everyone out the door and on the school bus/dropped off at school on time, while searching for lost shoes, misplaced homework, the pink-with-purple-sparkles-and-a-unicorn hair clip that MUST be worn …

Maple Smoked Tofu Bacon

We call this ‘Bacon Candy’ in our house. For any herbivore missing the sweet, smoky, chewy taste of a good strip of bacon, this recipe is for you.  We prefer it with tofu (my kids haven’t quite hopped on board the tempeh train yet), but you could absolutely swap the tofu for tempeh. We use …

One Pot Garlic Butter Pasta

We are in the dog days of August, where the air is so thick and humid you can cut it with a knife, and the mere thought of turning on kitchen appliances makes you break out into even more of a sweat, but yet somehow, that wasn’t enough of a deterrent for this carb-loving mama …
