TWWRM Part 2 – The Women Long Gone

Codependency starts with someone who is lost. We’ve all been there before, we find ourselves in a friendship that is no longer serving us but we’re so dependent on that person for support and love that we can’t seem to let go. As I’ve become surer of who I am as a person, I’ve become…

TWWRM Part 1 – The Women Who Managed Me

The Women Who Raised Me – Intro + Dedication

I think a lot of women my age think it’s a big deal to turn 25. Some feel like it’s the end of their days of carefree fun, but for me it’s just the beginning. I’m finally coming into my own and I don’t feel like I’m tripping through life anymore. In honor of this…

Soyrizo Stuffed Poblano Peppers | Vegan

First things first, this recipe got a solid approval from a self proclaimed “picky non-vegan”, so yeah patting myself on the back.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Pudding Pie | Vegan

I LOVE cooking and creating new recipes. However, I’m still trying to get the hang of vegan baking. It can be finicky, substitution ratios can be difficult, and ultimately it’s hard to salvage if something it wrong. BUT THIS PIE IS EVERYTHING. It has a slight spicy flavor that is cooled with the coconut cinnamon…

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Candy Cane Buttercream | Vegan

These cupcakes are ALL KINDS OF HOLIDAY YUMMMM!  Disclaimer – candy canes are technically not vegan because they’re made with honey, and honey is a product of bees. Since bees are an animal, honey is an animal byproduct. HOWEVER, this frosting can easily be made without the candy canes!  Ingredients 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour…
