How was your Thanksgiving? Did you eat ALL the things? How many kinds of pie did you have? My Thanksgiving was actually pretty low key around here and I loved it.

Chocolate Vegan Pecan Pie

I couldn’t resist one last vegan dessert before Thanksgiving! While we already hosted friends over the weekend, I’m always SO excited for the day. This year, my parents are coming to visit me and we are going to make a small meal, but I mostly love handling the dessert side of things.

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…)

Sweet Potato Salad with Mustard Balsamic Dressing

A sweet and savory sweet potato salad with pecans and dried cranberries, perfect for summer cookouts and parties! Made with a sweet balsamic vinaigrette and tart cranberries.

I know, sweet potato salad in May? But hear me out! On my recent visit to my grandparent’s house last month, my grandma enlisted me to help her in making a side for lunch one day. Putting our cooking minds together, we ended up coming up with a cold sweet potato salad, using up some frozen sweet potatoes she had and whipping up a dressing from an old cookbook that would (more…)
