Gluten-free Vegan Cheezy Bunny Crackers

Gluten-free Vegan Cheezy Bunny Crackers

  Initially I had Goldfish crackers on the brain. I first attempted to recreate that fun treat in shape of bunnies for this upcoming holiday celebration but as we all know so well, sometimes our intentions don’t always work out the way we think they will. In fact, the texture and flavor of what these...

Fresh Vegan Spring Rolls (with a Peanut Dipping Sauce)

  Do I have a fun Easter meal idea for you! Okay, wait stop, this doesn’t feel right. All these Easter posts as of late and I’m trying to find a way to fit this recipe in. The truth is that it isn’t shaped as an egg, it doesn’t look like a bunny, and it’s not filled with sugar. BUT...
Vegan Carrot Cake Pancakes

Vegan Carrot Cake Pancakes

Talk about a food that is full of beta carotene and good for those peepers, it’s a carrot cake but in breakfast form. Well, then again, this is a girl who would gladly eat a slice of carrot cake for breakfast so I guess I should be a little more specific, shouldn’t I? This decadent breakfast is for the...

With a hint of citrus and packed with a soft crunch, these Lemon Sugar Bunny Cookies are a must-make for your household this coming Easter. I was so pleased with how beautifully yellow the turmeric colored the icing also! Makes me wanna buy a bunny…or maybe just bake another batch of cookies. Let’s talk a little...

Vegan Cadbury Egg Bowls

 If you have been following Fork & Beans for a while, you will note my love for holidays and foods that are shaped in celebration for it. Shoot, I have a section in my Recipes that is labeled “Holidays“ so it’s needless to say that I love getting creative with my food when there is a holiday approaching. ...
Vegan White Chocolate Mousse

Vegan White Chocolate Mousse

I have worked day and night for you sweet friends, in hopes to bring you a mighty good tasting vegan white chocolate mousse. This was no easy feat. May I share with you the agony this has caused me? Too bad, I’m going to anyway. First I thought maybe cashews would be a good base since...
Guide to Seeds (and a Nut-Free Trail Mix Recipe)

Guide to Seeds (and a Nut-Free Trail Mix Recipe)

Incorporating new changes into your diet can be easier than you think. If you are anything like me, I immediately correlate losing weight or getting healthy with what I can’t have when the truth of the matter it isn’t always about what you aren’t indulging in. It doesn’t always have to be about eliminating certain...
Vegan Italian "Shepherd's" Pie

Vegan Italian “Shepherd’s” Pie

  This ain’t your mama’s Shepherd’s Pie. Well, hold on, Fact: an actual Shepherd’s Pie is filled with lamb. Another Fact: This recipe is filled with lentils, in Fact it is also flavored with Italian spices and herbs which is (Fact) not in an actual Shepherd’s Pie. Hence the quotation marks in the recipe; hence the vegan/Italian part. Let us...
Cinnamon ABC Crackers (gluten-free vegan)

Cinnamon ABC Crackers (gluten-free vegan)

It’s official. I am entering that place in life where I can no longer do certain things with my body without negative repercussions. So here’s the deal: My job requires a lot of sitting at a computer. That, mixed with my dad’s terrible spinal genes (that’s a real thing, right? ha) causes for deep pain in my lower...

Lexie Croft's Everyday Classics Cookbook (and a Giveaway)

Lexie Croft’s Everyday Classics Cookbook (and a Giveaway)

It’s a rare thing for me to say that a cookbook inspires me. I know that sounds strange because I surround my life around food and why wouldn’t a cookbook inspire me? But the truth of the matter is there are few that truly speak to my heart. There are even fewer that I have actually woken...
