Friends, the time is almost here. The big meal, where I can eat 3-4 servings of mashed potatoes, followed by more vegan peanut butter pie than I care to admit, is almost here!

I have to admit, much like the rolls I posted earlier in the week, this vegan peanut butter pie recipe was born out of not finding something that could quite fit my needs. I know there are about 3454 variations of chocolate peanut butter pie out there, (more…)

Are you one of those people who already has their Christmas shopping done? As in like, you were already out and doing it before Thanksgiving even got here? I have to tell you that I am NOT. As much as I like being a planner, Christmas shopping just doesn’t come easily to me. I either find the perfect gifts at odd times (middle of summer, no where near the persons birthday, etc.) or I just can’t think of a dang thing to give them that they haven’t bought themselves already (more…)

When I first set out to make this pie, I was sure I didn’t want it to have a traditional knead and chill crust, one that took time and a little too much effort for this particular week for me. Not wanting to forgo the crust completely, my mind turned to a crumbly, streusel topping that had rolled oats, brown sugar and lots of crunchy bits, which are always necessary. But that was for the top, right? (more…)

Heyo! How was your long-er weekend? Mine was filled with brunches on patios, long walks, and beers on an (enclosed) rooftop patio. The weather was a little crummy on Sunday here, but yesterday and Saturday were textbook gorgeous, so I drank a beermosa and made all our friends brownies. I’ve made these vegan rice krispie treats twice in the last couple of weeks. The first time was for (more…)

Vegan Key Lime Pie with Coconut Crust

Before you even start, I know that key lime pie is totally not is season right now, I know! While everyone else is drowning in pumpkin and apple everything, I’m just reaching for a piece of the long gone summer, trying to hold on to my favorite warm weather dessert. I’ll admit that I’ve been meaning to make this pie ever since my cousin got married in Florida in August (I know, it’s been a few months..there were tacos to be eaten and stuff to be done!), especially since I hadn’t tried my hand at vegan key lime pie just yet. A lot of the recipes I found involved cashew soaking or just freezing the filling, both of which were just things I wasn’t really into. I love cashews in desserts, but for this one, (more…)
