Vegan Deep Dish Brownies

Vegan Deep Dish Brownies are a sweet, chocolate filled treat for a special occasion or easy enough for a weeknight treat!

If there’s going to be one thing that my husband and I agree wholeheartedly on, it’s chocolate desserts.

What do you remember about your first float? I know I remember that mine was root beer (obviously) from the A & W Drive In in my hometown. I thought that place was the coolest because we got to eat in the car and they just brought the food to (more…)

During the summer it always feels like I have a lot of lemon desserts going on around here, but you will forgive me, right? I can’t get enough of the bright, light lemon flavors before we transition into fall, so look out for just a few more lemon centered sweets before we pull out of the sweaters for the season. I’ve had a version of these vegan lemon cakes on my mind for a couple of years now, picturing a sweet, (more…)
