Vegan Summer Rolls With Peanut Coconut Dipping Sauce

No one seems to want to turn on the oven or the stove these days, and I can’t say I blame them! It’s sunny, it’s warm… who wants to be stuck in a hot kitchen? For those of us living on the East Coast,  summer is short and we try to make the most of […]

Vegan Strawberries & Cream Popsicles

One of the things that makes the process of creating recipes so much fun, is that you can literally mess up many, many times, and still come up with something good. As long, of course, as you’re creative and flexible enough to be willing to change gears! Take this recipe as an example. Our initial […]

Cherry & Walnut Goat Milk Ice Cream

  Things I’ve learned about the art of making homemade ice cream: – The process can be as unpredictable as life itself: the moment you think you have it all figure it out, it will throw you a curve ball that will make you rethink the whole thing all over again. – Not all milks […]

Vegan Avocado BLT Toast

Ok, so it’s confession time again. BLTs.  We’ve never had them. Never. I mean, it kinda makes, sense since we don’t eat bacon… and we’re pretty sure they’re an American thing, since we  don’t remember ever seeing BLTs on restaurant menus in Spain  (at least not when we grew up!), right?? They do sound good […]

Summer Breakfast Bowl

I’ve never been a morning person. Ever. When I was younger and still lived in Spain, my mom and sisters had to turn on the light in my room and call my name for like, an hour for me to wake up… At noon! When I started my first job, I used to literally wake […]

No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cheesecake

We have a confession to make: that peanut butter and chocolate combo most people love, well… we really don’t care for it. And maybe it’s because growing up, we didn’t have peanut butter in Spain, I don’t know. But neither one of us can have peanut butter with something super sweet, like chocolate. Peanut butter […]

Cucumber-Melon Paletas

Last year, right around this time, a friend of mine came to me asking for help with a business idea . She wanted to get a food truck and drive around selling nothing but homemade “paletas” (Spanish for ice pops) and gourmet coffee. Problem was, she knew a whole lot about coffee, but absolutely nothing […]
