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...
Cinnamon Streusel Mini Coffee Cakes

Cinnamon Streusel Mini Coffee Cakes

Remember when you were in college and those times when you would crave something sweet to eat? You would scrap up a chunk of change from anywhere you could find it, put your sandals on, and drag yourself out of your room down the hall to the vending machine to grab yourself a 3 pack of those Hostess Cinnamon...
Raw Vegan Banana Splits

Raw Vegan Banana Splits

This weekend here in Los Angeles we were experiencing a record-breaking heat wave. It was 90 degrees. Look, I’m not saying that to rub it in. That heat is miserable to me. I’m like a cranky old woman in desperate need of a nap when it’s that hot. (Not to mention I wasn’t all that fond of...
Homemade Cheerios

Homemade Cheerios

DISCLAIMER:  I’m still working on figuring out how to make these cereals not get soggy too quickly when immersed in nondairy milk. So if you make these, you have been warned. I haven’t quite figured out how the cereal factories do it. If anything, just enjoy the pictures and possibilities.  The process of making homemade Cheerios...
The Best Gluten-free Vegan Cinnamon Roll

The Best Gluten-free Vegan Cinnamon Roll

I know that some of you are afraid of using and proofing yeast and tend to avoid it but today I am going to hold your hand through this. Here’s my logic: If you are afraid of yeast then you can’t make today’s incredibly awesome recipe…and believe me when I say that this is the BEST gluten-free vegan cinnamon roll...
Vegan "Cool Ranch" Dip

Vegan “Cool Ranch” Dip

  It’s the sophisticated chip dip for St. Paddy’s Day. I mean, it’s peppered with parsley and chives so that counts for green, right? This vegan “Cool Ranch” Dip won’t be pinched either because of it (note to those who don’t know the St. Patrick’s Day rule of thumb: If you aren’t wearing green on March 17, it gives...
Thin Mint Oreos

Thin Mint Oreos

So I finally put on my St. Paddy’s Day spirit on; an ode to the day of all-things green. Riddle me this: What do you get when you marry homemade Mint Oreos and Thin Mints? Besides one of my favorite cookies that I have created to this day, you get Thin Mint Oreos. I’m sure...
Homemade Moon Pies

Homemade Moon Pies

I made you a special treat and wrapped them up in plastic. Can you guess what they are? Can you? Oh who am I kidding. You already know the answer since I gave it away with the title of this post. Note to self: Make these questions less obvious and more difficult. The answer is...
Homemade Vegan Doritos - 3 Different Flavors

Homemade Vegan Doritos – 3 Different Flavors

The idea of making Homemade Vegan Doritos really originated from this Vegan Nacho Cheese Dorito seasoning recipe (pure genius) from Vegan Richa, which in return inspired me to take it one step further. I had to make them into chips! I know, shocker right? If you know me, you know about my chip obsession. So I...
Gluten-free Vegan Nutter Butter Bites

Gluten-free Vegan Nutter Butter Bites

Oatmeal Cream Pies, Animal Crackers…and now gluten-free vegan Nutter Butter Bites?! I’ve gone mad, I tell you, MAD. I’m a woman obsessed with all-things childhood favorite treats. Even Matt took a bite out of one of these and with eyes wide open he said, “Dude, those taste like the real deal.” No, actually he said...

Homemade Animal Crackers

Okay, have a seat my friend. Then again, you probably are already sitting down as you read this so humor me here and re-enact the motion of sitting down. So I’ve been super inspired this week. I’m reconnecting with my original roots here on Fork & Beans. Through this mini facelift that I just underwent–the...
Gluten-free Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pies

Gluten-free Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pies

Today I’m visiting an incredible blogger friend Sarah of Sarah Bakes Gluten-Free and I really wanted to make her an ultra-special treat. What better way to spread baking cheer than with homemade gluten-free vegan Oatmeal Cream Pies? I knew that you would agree. I’m surprised it has taken me this long to recreate Oatmeal Cream Pies. Probably...
