Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I woke up this morning with no alarm at 6:30 so I figured I should enjoy my time off and start with a fun breakfast! I ordered some donut pans from Amazon and I’ve been waiting to try them out! I found this simple vegan donut recipe on Pinterest that’s oil free and they don’t…

Veggilicious Pasta

I bought a bag of whole wheat fusilli from Trader Joe’s to bring to the mountains as a back up in case we needed something to eat, but since we didn’t I got to use it the night we got home. I got some more veggies because I like to have about an equal ratio…
