My Vegan Thanksgiving Menu

What I ate Wednesday – The (Vegan) Cheese Edition

I’m happy to be hosting The Lusty Vegan blog tour today!  The Lusty Vegan is a project I’ve been close to, as I do freelance work for the book’s publisher Vegan Heritage Press, and I designed the cover! I enjoy working on projects like this because it
