Easy Vegan Creamy Pasta with Kale

Easy Vegan Creamy Pasta with Kale

Okay, remember when I confessed that I’m the biggest fan of kale? And then I made this recipe, guaranteed to win over any kale-hater (like it did for me…well, let’s not go too far. I’m still not craving the stuff but I am buying it weekly to find different ways to cook with it. So there!) Well,...
Halloween Owl Sugar Cookies

Halloween Owl Sugar Cookies

Growing up, there was a house on The Hill (a neighborhood in my town named so because it sat on a slight slant) that had the great pressure of living up to its reputation every Halloween. This home sat on the corner of the block with its huge bay windows–it was the perfect setting for the re-enactment of the...
Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Bread

Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Bread

This recipe has been stored up in the F&B’s archives for a while now but seeing the influx of pumpkin recipes out there recently, I figured now is a great time to share the tastiest gluten-free vegan pumpkin bread out there. I feel a bit all over the place with recipes lately. In fact, life...
No-Bake Pumpkin Patch Cookies

No-Bake Pumpkin Patch Cookies

What is a holiday if you cannot celebrate it in style? For me, the whole point of enjoying Halloween is being creative and simply being gluten, egg, and/or dairy-free is no excuse as to why you can’t get down and dirty in the creativity! Now I’m totally for going all out in the kitchen and spending...
Creamed Kale

Creamed Kale

I’m taking a step back from Halloween posts (*gasp* – a girl can’t live off of Halloween foods…well, she can but she shouldn’t…) to talk about a particular vegetable that is all the craze these days: Kale. I’m not the biggest fan of kale. I feel like I should be because it’s all people have...
Flying Bat Halloween Cookie Pops

Flying Bat Halloween Cookie Pops

There are a couple of places that make me squeal like a little girl. No, I’m not even kidding–on my way to said places, I have actually screamed like a fan-crazed tween. One of them being Michael’s craft store. I tell you, one of the reasons why I had a difficult time adjusting to living in L.A. was...
Autumn Harvest Veggie Soup (from Vegan Slow Cooking)

Autumn Harvest Veggie Soup (from Vegan Slow Cooking)

Yup, it’s true. Kathy Hester of Healthy Slow Cooking does it again! It’s her third cookbook and I’m not even exaggerating when I say that this is her best work yet. Vegan Slow Cooking for 2 (or Just For You) is a beautiful collection of slow cooking recipes that are eclectic at best–ranging from dinner...
Fork & Beans Halloween e-Book

Fork & Beans Halloween e-Book

Friends, you should know by now that I am completely crazy over Halloween. I mean, I have an entire section dedicated to all things creepy, disgusting, and eerie.  So it is of no surprise to you that I will take any excuse to celebrate my favorite holiday a good month in advance. What better way to celebrate with all...
Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Twix

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Twix

It’s the last day of Vegan MoFo and I am celebrating with a big ol’ batch of homemade gluten-free vegan Twix bars. Who’s with me? Sometimes the annoying thing about making homemade treats that are without gluten, eggs, and dairy is that they end up being time-consuming. A lot of people ask if I will...

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Kit Kats

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Kit Kats

I’m not even kidding when I say that this gluten-free vegan Kit Kats candy makeover has been 2 years in the making. Over the past 24 months I have been retiring the idea that there is a gluten-free wafer-like food item that is easily accessible to most people that could be placed inside the mid...
Homemade Lemon Drop Candies

Homemade Lemon Drop Candies

I have a special soft spot for Lemon Drops.   There are few memories I have of my grandmother but one that sticks out the most in my mind is how she always had Lemon Drops candies waiting for my sister and I whenever we came to visit. Now it is of no surprise to all of you that as a...
