Hummus Pesto Bruschetta Dip

This was requested by my bestie Dakota for Galentine’s night and I’m so glad she introduced me to this combo. It’s such a perfect combination of flavors. She usually buys it but to make the vegan pesto I decided to make it. I served it with toasted sliced baguettes and pita crackers. It was a…

3 Layer Mexican Dip

For Super Bowl I made this 3 Layer Mexican Dip for Josh and I and it was so tasty! Its so easy you can make it in 5 minutes! I got all of the ingredients from Trader Joe’s so it’s a one stop shop. You just need a can of the Fat Free Refried Beans,…

Super Bowl Meal Planning

Before I indulge in all of the finger foods I’m planning on making today, I started the day off right with a delicious nice cream bowl. This has been my favorite kind because it gets so fluffy and light. I’m not sure if it’s from the packet of JuicePlus powder or the combination of fruit…

Chinese Style New Year’s Eve

For the last three years we’ve just stayed in for New Years and I’ve made dumplings from scratch. Now it’s a tradition! We have our own little party and reminisce about the year and things we want to accomplish in the upcoming year. Last year I made dumplings and they were so awful I ended…

Vegan Christmas Ideas

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you had a very merry day and have been enjoying the season. We had a great time the last few days spending time with family and friends. As always, the key to being vegan at events is being prepared. You can’t just go with the flow or else you’ll go…

Different Dips

Sick of the same old dips every football Saturday? Want to be the one to break the boring streak and take something new and exciting over to your friend’s football party? YES! I made these two dips the other day and they are wonderfully different than my same old hummus and salsa I usually bring…

Weekend Goodies

We had a really busy weekend so I threw together things that were easy and quick to put together. On Saturday night we got together with 20ish family members and they had BBQ so I wanted to bring something that was similar, but easy to make. Luckily I had a can of Trader Joe’s organic…

Super Bowl Food

Well it wasn’t the yummiest assortment I’ve ever made, but I tried to come up with some oil free Super Bowl foods that would fit within the starch solution guidelines. Chili was something simple that is healthy and can be made without oil, but I just threw a bunch of beans and diced tomatoes in…

New Year’s Eve Epic Fail

As I said in my prior post, I was so excited to make dumplings from scratch for New Year’s Eve again this year because last year they were amazing. Well… this year’s were so bad they ended up in the trash. I can probably count on one hand the times that has had to happen…

Classic*ish* Hummus

I feel like hummus has become my new staple snack for any occasion: after school, at parties or get togethers, and sometimes it’s even lunch. It’s simple, naturally vegan, healthy, and you can pretty much use anything as a dipper and it’s delicious. Hummus can get expensive when you buy it at the grocery all…
