Pasta Salads are one of my favorite things to make, not only because they're really easy, but since they're meant to be eaten cold it means eating the leftovers is even easier.

Butternut Squash is one of my favorite fall vegetables to cook.  I've seen so many recipes floating around for hassleback squashes, and gosh they are just SO pretty.  Theres one I saw, I forget who posted it, it sounded absolutely delicious... but unfortunately wasn't vegan.  So I took inspiration from that to bring you this [...]

Carrot Cake Muffins with Cream Cheese Icing

Carrot Cake is always one of my favorite fall desserts, but honestly I've always been annoyed with how difficult it is to pass around and carry with you because usually it is very moist & can crumble easily.  I wanted to create something that was a little easier to bring to potlucks or holiday parties, [...]
