Fluffy Biscuit Topped Veg Pot Pie {plus related recipe}

Now that the holidays are over (I hope everyone had a good time) and things have settled down a little, I decided I wanted a simple, tasty, warm meal. Pot pie was the only logical answer, especially with a biscuit baked on top.  Happy New Year everyone and may your year be full of good [vegan] food.

Sticky Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

I had put off working on this recipe for a few months up until last week. Previously when I had made them, they had turned out dry, and flat, and although they were still pretty good, I wanted them to be perfect. Mother’s Day approached and while thinking about what to make my mom I had come up with an idea. She likes apples, and well you can’t have apples without caramel, right? [At least in my mind] .. so I got to work. I took my time, did the math and what I ended up with blew my vegan mind, it was exactly what I was looking for. Not only did they taste like an actual caramel apple, they were the fluffiest rolls I think I have ever eaten, vegan or not.

[Microwave] Sponge Cake in a Mug with a Side of Fruit

I am a huge fan of brownie in a mug, so I thought I’d expand a little. This makes a great, quick dessert that you don’t have to invest hardly any time into. Plus, mugs are fun to eat out of, so don’t blame me if you start eating out of a mug full time.

Cinnamon Apple Breakfast Brown Rice with Raisins and Almonds

Like I have mentioned before, I get so sick of oatmeal. Even though I recently discovered an awesome and flavorful brand, I still get bored with it. I figured I would try and brew up some brown rice in my crock pot with a random apple I had lying around. It came together to form a super soft, fluffy satisfying breakfast dish. You can add anything else you’d like, too. I plan on adding some pecans and bananas next time. This brown rice is super nutritious, and it keeps you completely full until lunch time rolls around. I apologize for forgetting to take a picture, so you’ll just have to look at my cat’s instead :

Bold “Cheezy” Broccoli and Potato Soup

I will be honest. I bought too much broccoli, I don’t know why I bought so much, but somehow I did. I had no idea what to do with it and I was tired of just eating it as a side dish. This is what happened, and I thought it was delicious and seriously filling. Hope you enjoy ~

Green Bean Casserole

” Who’s bringing the green bean casserole ? ”  is a commonly asked question around holiday gatherings in many homes. The week after Thanksgiving last year, around my first few months of going vegan, I made this casserole and thoroughly enjoyed it. It gave me a little hope that there could be some delicious vegan food in my future. At first it was looking pretty grim, but almost one year later, I still love this recipe.

Vanilla Nutmeg Donuts with Dark Chocolate Espresso Sprinkle

The one thing I get asked often is … ” What do vegans do about Donuts ? ”  Where I live no one gives a hoot about making any vegan friendly donuts, so I have to make them myself. Truth is, I never really ate many in the first place. I never bought them. Never worked in an office where they were readily available.. only probably ate about 12 of them my whole life.  Now, of course it would be easy to fry some up and make them taste fairly close to the “real deal ” which will always be scarred into my taste bud’s memory. But I decided to tackle the challenge in a somewhat healthier way, by baking them. If you want a more traditional method with some added calories from frying, might as well Google it, because I’m not in too big of a hurry to write a recipe up for that. I’d rather have a cupcake or a pie if I want some guilty pleasure.
