Potatoes: Two Ways

Potatoes: Two Ways

The best part about Thanksgiving, to me, is mashed potatoes! Seriously, who doesn’t love potatoes? Mashed, roasted, steamed, fried…Give me them all. Before going Vegan we would always buy these pre-made (I know…We’re terrible people) maple whipped sweet potatoes just because they were SO good!

No other way to really describe it.  Roasting Garlic is actually SUPER SIMPLE! It also tastes so delicious! It… View Post

However after going Vegan, I have developed a whole new love for food and I knew that this would have to be a recipe I attempted for the holiday season.    I have always loved cornbread. I grew up with my grandmother making her own and I’ve always cherished that family memory. My grandmother is still alive but has sadly declined in the past few years so… View Post

Fall Apple – Quinoa Kale Salad

Fall Apple – Quinoa Kale Salad

Keeping on the apple trend for my newest recipe by adding it to a delicious Kale based salad. It wasn’t until recently that I gained a love for adding fruit to my salads. Whether it be Strawberries during Summer time, to Apples now that we reached this Fall season, fruit can really compliment a bowl of salad greens.  Did you know that today (October 5th) is National Kale Day? How exciting is that? Kale is such an amazing green with tons of health benefits so it’s only right to celebrate it.  Quinoa is also a delicious seed that is high… View Post
