10 Vegan Thanksgiving Desserts

What kind of Thanksgiving planner are you? Do you wait until the last minute and go with the flow, or do you have a detailed spreadsheet like me that includes every detail of the whole dang meal? I’m too Type A to go without planning every piece of the meal out (including what burner or oven space we have left), but in case you are still thinking about your vegan Thanksgiving desserts, I’ve rounded them all up in one place! These range from slightly more effort to super easy (those boozy truffles will be the best decision you’ve made for the meal) and go from chocolate filled to everything pumpkin. I hope these help make your Thanksgiving planning a little easier as we come up into the week ahead. Almost all of these can (more…)

He’s 100% a chocolate or die kind of guy, craving the kind of desserts that are chocolate on chocolate (like these sweet cookies), while I’ll gladly take any chocolate dessert, but also love a fruity dessert thrown in there occasionally too. Really, I’ve been testing these vegan deep dish brownies to celebrate (more…)

Happy weekend! I’m popping in quickly today to share a winter citrus quinoa salad that has been a staple for me the past few weeks. In an effort to keep with my intentions¬†for the year, I wanted to find a salad that is filling, easy to throw together and hearty enough that I won’t be hangrily tearing through the cupboards for a snack in an hour. Mixing in a handful of pre-cooked quinoa and drizzling over a creamy lemon tahini dressing that even a tahini hater like me can love all seem to do the trick. (more…)

Well, we came out of the other side of Thanksgiving, everything intact!
