Gluten-Free Vegan Baked Cheetos

Gluten-Free Vegan Baked Cheetos

Look, no one claimed that I was sane. I think I just proved this point by taking a stab at recreated a gluten-free vegan baked version of Cheetos. And what a delight I had doing so. Am I weirdo for giggling whilst piping out a Cheetos dough onto a baking sheet?  Do they taste exactly the same?...

Gluten-free Vegan Homemade Ding Dongs

   Blah, blah…gluten-free vegan homemade Ding Dongs. Blah, blah, read more words. Words. Words. I know, this is a ridiculous intro but I am serious when I say that there is really no use in reading anything I have to say about this recipe. All you need to know is that you need to make these....

Hostess Cookie Sandwiches

Ever completely lose your baking groove for days on end, leaving you wondering what in the world are you even doing in the kitchen?! Sometimes I wonder if that is just the Universe passing along that mojo to someone else who desperately needs it because they too just experienced a week of complete and utter...

Raw Pad Thai from Choosing Raw

Raw Pad Thai from Choosing Raw

Dinner is served with this incrediblly tasty Raw Pad Thai from the cookbook all-star Choosing Raw by Gena Hamshaw. Look, let’s get real for a second.

  These cookies. These stinkin’ Iced Oatmeal Cookies. It’s my first day back in the kitchen in about two weeks and I feel like a newbie all over again.

Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Three years ago I sat in a little French café, trying to explain to my mom what a blog was and how I planned on starting one despite the fact that I had no experience doing anything like that. Though I am sure at the moment she had no idea what I was talking about, she,...

S'mores Ice Cream Sandwiches

S’mores Ice Cream Sandwiches

I have and always will have a super soft spot for S’mores. There is something quintessential about the flavor combination that brings me back to acting like a 7 year old girl. I used to eat Pop Tarts, cereal, granola bars, or any dessert (heck, make that a breakfast food too) that was a combination of chocolate,...
Raw Vegan "Skillet" Brownies

Raw Vegan “Skillet” Brownies

I started non-baking raw vegan brownies two years ago when I began to fall in love with raw desserts and the possibilities it presented. I had always been intimidated by the concept of raw foods but the draw had been there for years. I distinctly remember sitting on my bed eight years ago scouring the...
Healthy "Otter Pops"

Healthy “Otter Pops”

 You know that I am a sucker for a good copy cat recipe. Heck, I gots an entire section dedicated to childhood favorites that have all the gluten, eggs, and dairy taken out of them. Dare I say that it gives me the biggest kick when I create these recipes most of all.  I about...
