Creating the perfect unsweetened cashew milk

I’m here to tell you that I’ve done the testing, and I’ve found the creamiest, easiest, and fastest way to make your own homemade cashew milk, without the soaking time! I did quite a bit of testing a few years back on the best homemade non-dairy milks and the results were mixed. Oat milk came in with a solid ‘no’ (too slimy), pistachio milk was too specific tasting (does that even make sense?), and almond milk is always a good standby, but it seems to go way too quickly.

We all had little quirks growing up, right? Weird things we ate or did that now seem totally crazy and kind of gross (well, they were in my case). As for me, I used to suck on lemons and eat chunks of butter right off of the butter knife (told you it’s gross!), but of course now, those habits seem totally crazy. We have a friend who used to eat sugar sandwiches, and AJ used to eat bologna and ketchup sandwiches. I mean, to each his own, right? (more…)

Chocolate Almond Vegan Granola Bars

Chocolate Almond Vegan Granola Bars

A quick and easy chocolate almond vegan granola bar recipe perfect for snacking or dessert! Vegan and can be made gluten-free.

I’ve always struggled with finding the perfect vegan granola bar recipe. I can bake a cake or cookie, like nobody’s business, but the perfect vegan granola bars still proved to be a struggle. I wanted a perfect combination of easy, no bake, and ready to throw together. I don’t usually have a ton of nuts and dried fruits on hand in my pantry, so I wanted something I usually have (chocolate, always) and packs a little protein punch (almonds, FTW). I also didn’t want them to be overly sweet or complicated, so I think the short seven ingredient list hits the nail right on the head.

I will say these homemade granola bars require some chill time, but honestly, it was super easy to make these, freeze for a few hours and then cut them up before popping them into a bag. I really needed something that was going to break my chips and salsa every day after work addiction, and these chocolate almond vegan granola bars did just the trick! (more…)

10 Vegan Appetizer Recipes

There are plenty of reasons to watch March Madness, but I personally show up for the apps. Surprise, surprise. Filling out a bracket is a yearly ritual – and so is losing every single year. I always pick the wrong upsets because I just love a Cinderella team. But if I did it to win, I would’ve stopped by now. No, no. I do it for the apps! It’s impossible to watch multiple basketball games at once without proper sustenance. Please excuse me while I try (and fail) to avoid using sportsball puns in all of these recommendations. Enjoy!
