Five-Spiced Coffee Carrot Salad

I don't know about you, but before I was vegan I LOVED any meats that were "coffee crusted".  It adds such a unique depth of flavor that works well with so many things.  I feel like people are scared to coffee crust vegetables... but let me tell you, you won't be sorry you did.  Carrots [...]

Ale Cornbread Biscuits

Now that fall / winter is here, I don't know about you... but I'm living my best life & eating all the soups / stews.  I love having some kind of bread with soup, for dipping mainly... but also because, bread is fucking amazing?  These Ale Cornbread Biscuits combine a few of my favorite breads [...]

Rosemary Peach Pop Tarts

Poptarts were always a favorite of mine growing up.  They were the perfect breakfast / sweet treat, and I loved that I could take them anywhere.  I never realized how easy it was to make them yourself until recently, and oh my gosh I just want to make so many, with a million flavor combinations.

Winter Harvest Pasta

So a few weeks ago, I went to the farmers market in hopes of getting some produce to make dinner... but didn't have any kind of game plan in mind.  I just knew I wanted to get whatever looked good at the moment and make something with that.  When I got there, they had the [...]

White Chocolate Pistachio Granola Bars

So I'm going to be honest with you guys...  I've never made granola bars before.  Ever.  It seems like something that people make all the time, but I don't eat them very often so never thought about making my own.  My boyfriend on the other hand... he eats them on a daily basis.  I was [...]

Garbage Plate

Right out of high school, I lived in Rochester, New York for about 2 years.  If any of you are from Upstate New York, you've probably heard of the infamous Garbage Plate.  The perfect late night drunk / early morning hungover meal consisting of macaroni salad, home fries, chili meat sauce, either 2 cheeseburger patties, [...]

Vegan Cheese Board

With Super Bowl Sunday approaching, I wanted to create a recipe for you guys that's something you can easily serve to a party full of guests, but still is fancy and decadent at the same time.  I know at Super Bowl parties you usually find things like dips, sliders, and finger foods... but how awesome [...]

French Onion Burger

Have you ever had a craving for French onion soup & a burger at the same time?  I have, and well, that's how this recipe came about.  I've always loved French onion soup, I mean, who doesn't, but I never have found it to be filling enough for a whole meal.  Combining these flavors into [...]

Honey Mustard Pretzel Turkey Burger

Growing up, one of my favorite snack combinations was pretzel sticks dipped in honey mustard.  They just make the most perfect pairing, and I could literally eat them all day.  I already created a recipe using The Abbot's Butcher's Turkey Burgers on here, and I wanted to create another one to show how versatile they [...]
