Yes, you heard me correctly. Vegan Milk and Cereal Cake. I had this crazy idea to make a cake where the batter was filled with cereal and instead of frosting, I would use coconut milk whipped cream to give you the flavors of eating milk and cereal in cake form. Would this work? Does this work? Damn right it does. Not only does this work, it is amazing. You can use whatever kind of cereal you want, just make sure it is vegan.
Have you ever had the French Toast Sticks from Burger King? I looooooved them when I was a wee child. We were always pretty busy when I was a kid, my dad worked really long hours, and we had a lot of fast food breakfasts. My dad was always into eating right and staying active, but didn’t know exactly what that meant until more recently. He eats better now, and is more active than most people I know. I digress though, back to childhood, there were many a morning I chowed down on some French toast sticks, dipping them into the little container of maple syrup they came with.
Everything bagels are my favorite bagels. That is all I used to eat, and I didn’t branch out until I got a little older. I love the flavor combination, it is so delicious. It is comforting and perfect. I have been wanting to make my own everything bagel spice blend for a while, and use it in an imaginative way! When I finally realized that the best thing to go with this particular spice blend, is cheese. A cheese ball with everything bagel spice mixed in, and then crusted in the spice was what I decided, and it is so G.D good.
I was not a huge fan of ricotta when I was young. I didn’t love lasagna or stuffed shells. As I got older, I thought I would try again, and started using ricotta for various things when I was a vegetarian. I slowly fell in love with ricotta, and then became a vegan, and that abruptly stopped. My husband is part Italian and grew up eating stuffed shells and other dishes that are ricotta heavy. We both decided, we needed things that include ricotta back in our lives. These vegan ricotta, basil and sausage stuffed shells are life!
My husband loves fried pickles. He calls himself a connoisseur of fried pickles, and tries them everywhere we go. He has given them bad reviews, good, and excellent. I wanted to top them all though, and make the most delicious fried pickles he has ever had, that just happen to be vegan. He hates fried pickle spears, and I can understand this. To get maximum crunch, your really need the a chip, it is thin and you can get the ultimate amount of batter on them. So they had to be dill chips! These vegan fried pickles with Mississippi comeback sauce are his favorite fried pickles thus far.
There are an overwhelming amount of birthdays in my family in March. I wanted to find some way to honor them, something totally amazing to show some love. These vegan birthday cake ice cream sandwiches definitely do the trick! Cake batter ice cream is my favorite, there is a local old school soda fountain that has amazing vegan ice cream, and I love their cake batter ice cream. I was thinking I would make it easy by creating a no churn ice cream, and then make it even better by turning it into a sandwich!
Okay, guys. Hear me out! This is the greatest pasta salad of all time, and lucky for you, this recipe makes a lot, so you can share with friends. Just in time for some Spring and Summer cookouts! When I was a kid, my dad used to take us to Sweet Tomatoes all the time. They have a tuna tarragon pasta salad. It was my favorite thing ever, and frankly one of the only things I have truly missed after going vegan. Yesterday, I smiled, I was so damn excited! This tastes exactly like what I have been missing all these years, and I am so happy to share it with you!
Spring is upon us, which means this is the start of my two favorite fruit seasons in a row. Spring and Summer are the times my favorite fruits are in season, cheap, juicy and itching to be used in some recipes! Strawberries and watermelon are the reigning champs in my love for fruit battle. I actually really like the cold weather, so fruits and veggies are really the only reason I look forward to Spring and Summer. These, vegan strawberry buttermilk biscuits are definitely sweetening the pot. Strawberries are every where right now, and I HAD to make something amazing with them!
Have you ever been to Wingers? They have this chicken appetizer called Sticky Fingers. The sauce looks and smells amazing. I have always wanted to try all their sauces, but alas, they have no fake chicken. Come on everyone. Every place should have a vegan option for me, geez. Well, I can just do it myself then. Here is my take on their signature chicken made vegan. The sauce is out of this world, I baked them instead of frying them. Paired with the best damn vegan blue cheese sauce. YES!
