My Vegan Thanksgiving Menu

I had grand ideas of creating a whole new menu of vegan Thanksgiving recipes, taking lovely photos, and posting throughout November. I even went grocery shopping for ingredients! Time got away from me though, and I got busy with consulting work and then caught a little cold. The

What I ate Wednesday – The (Vegan) Cheese Edition

Today I want to talk about a subject near and dear to my heart: vegan cheese. When I hear people say that they could never go vegan because they can’t give up cheese, I get it. I’ve been there. I had a really difficult time ditching cheese.

The Lusty Vegan – Recipe and Giveaway

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
