Vegan Pumpkin Bread

By |October 20th, 2015|All Recipes, Party Food, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Vegan pumpkin bread, in my opinion, is just as tasty, if not better than pumpkin bread made with butter and eggs. It's certainly lighter and fluffier while still being dense and hearty. Spread some hazelnut spread on a slice, or drizzle the entire loaf with a spiced glaze and you're good to go! Add some [...]

My mother-in-law went on an international trip. As a thank you for a ride to the airport, she unloaded all of the leftover produce she had harvested from her garden and gave it to us in one glorious veggie heap.

I love to experiment with vegan and gluten free baking. I admit that I prefer savory over sweet, but if I do say so, I think some baked goods taste just as good without animal and wheat products. Notice, I said SOME. This recipe would fall under the category of "just as delicious as" in [...]

Football season is in full swing! I went to THE Big Ten school and live in the city where it's based, so EVERYONE, it seems, is in the college football spirit. I cheer on my team with the best of them, but mostly I like to watch the games for the social aspect...surprise, surprise! And [...]

Butternut squash soup is the creamiest, most comforting food in my opinion. There are a ton of ways to use butternut squash in soup and I've never met a butternut squash soup I haven't liked. It can be sweet; it can be savory. It tastes good with some spice, or a kick of cumin. It's [...]
