Strawberry Lemon Donuts

Is there anything prettier than glaze dripping down a donut? Maybe not. These Strawberry Lemon donuts are spongy, light, and have a delicious strawberry glaze. They’re vegan, gluten free, and oil free as well! I tried to make them as healthy as possible to have a no guilt donut breakfast option and still include as…

Vacation Worthy Meals

We’re at the beach for the week and we like to stay in for dinner as much as we go out while we’re here. My parents aren’t vegan, so we had to come up with a menu that could incorporate things that everyone would enjoy. When you’re cooking for a crowd, it can be hard…

Vanilla Lime Donuts

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! I wanted to be festive and come up with a green (yet still appetizing) breakfast today and came up with these vanilla lime donuts. Naturally green without the crazy amount of food coloring usually used today. They’re simple with a zing of tangy like flavor and you’ll feel lucky when…

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes

It’s my birthday week and I wanted to start it off with a bang! I used to ask for chocolate covered strawberries instead of birthday cake because I love them so much, so why not make a pancake version?! Yum! Sliced strawberries get soft and caramelized when they’re cooking on the griddle and the chocolate…

Lemon Blueberry Baked Donuts

Lemon and blueberry are best friends in my eyes, so these donuts are unbelievably scrumptious! They’re baked and oil free, so you’re able to have an indulgent breakfast without the saturated fat involved. They’re tart and tangy but also sweet and soft and the lemon glaze is the perfect topping to these treats. I’ve made…

Vegan Cinnamon Swirl Cake

I made this delicious Vegan Cinnamon swirl cake from Vegan Richa on Saturday and it was such a tasty treat! It has common ingredients that I already had in my pantry and I whipped it up in my kitchen aid in about 4 minutes. You make a simple vegan vanilla cake and layer it with…

Meal Planning 12.29.18

I can’t believe it’s my last week of meal planning for 2018 and the start of 2019! This year has been thankfully full of mostly positives which is amazing. We’ve traveled to Bahamas, Las Vegas, my parents’ beach house, Italy, and the mountains. Josh just started a new job geared more towards his career of…

Cranberry Banana Muffins

I felt like baking again this morning, as most weekend mornings. I looked around the kitchen to see what I had and I found some brown bananas, Craisins, and my usual baking ingredients. I wanted to come up with some tasty muffins and I also used some lemon juice. The lemon juice didn’t really come…

Vegan Blueberry Pancakes

These were so delicious! Josh’s parents spent the night with us last night and we slept in because it’s rainy. We had a slow morning and I made these blueberry pancakes. I looked up a recipe on Pinterest and it was perfect. All I did was use 2 cups of all purpose flour and I…

Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal

Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal I’m always looking for a way to get oatmeal into my diet, so this morning I decided to try something new! I used what I had to make this blueberry lemon oatmeal and it was so good I finished my bowl! It tasted like a tasty blueberry lemon muffin. I added a…

Meal Planning 11.25.18

To say I stuffed myself to the brim on Thanksgiving and the day after would be an understatement, yet I still want another piece of pie since I was too full to have it last night! That means it’s time to get back in a healthy eating routine before Christmas parties and goodies arrive! Yesterday…

Meal Planning for the week of Thanksgiving!

It’s Thanksgiving week! Time for family, food, and beautiful fall weather. Thanksgiving has always been big in our family. I’m from a huge family (my mom is one of six) and when I was little we used to go to my grandparent’s house with my grandma’s siblings as well so it was a big, fun…

Vegan French Toast

Frigid, fire, football, French toast, and food memories! My grandpa always made the grandchildren French toast when we were over for breakfast and now it’s become a food memory just like everything else he used to make. Now when I make those things, I’m basically crying by the time I sit down to eat it….

Meal Planning 10.28.18

I’ve been meaning to try this Miyoko’s Un-Lox Your Dreams vegan cream cheese since I spotted it in Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago so when trying to come up with an appetizer for Saturday football games, I thought it was my time to try it out! For the game I sliced a ciabatta baguette…

Apple Pie Oatmeal

Apple cinnamon everything right now! I always try to make up new ways to make oatmeal more interesting because I use to HATE it. I couldn’t stand the mushiness, the bland taste, and it just tasted like goop, especially when I made it from scratch instead of the sugary packets. Now I realized that if…

Cinnamon Apple Banana Oat Muffins

I woke up this morning with fall crispness in the air and was inspired to whip up some fall baking goodies! I’ve been loving using oatmeal flour instead of regular flour in my baked goods and I’ve been experimenting with getting vegan things to rise. I had some apples with spots on them and decided…

Meal Planning 9.30.18

Well after a week in the beach and the mountains, we’re relaxed and thankful for a nice week of vacation together. Josh and I went down to Blue Mountain beach and even though it rained most of our trip we loved getting a massage, playing Yahtzee, and hanging out together which doesn’t happen much since…

Meal Planning 9.9.18

By the time Saturday rolls around, our fridge is pretty empty and it’s time for another Trader Joe’s run. I wanted to find something to make a yummy hot breakfast (since every work day I have fruit for breakfast lately) and the only thing I could find was some quick oats and some fruit. I…

Apple Spice Pancakes and Meal Plans 8.19.18

I woke up this morning wanting to make something extra yummy for breakfast. I’ve been having a bowl of watermelon for breakfast lately, so a stack of fluffy pancakes sounded like a treat! I’m still working on my vegan baked goods (my banana bread from yesterday was a total FAIL) so I thought pancakes are…
