Vegan Herbed Seitan Vol Au Vents

Today, I’m most definitely thankful for my legs.  Without them, I wouldn’t be able to do half the things I do everyday. They allow me to stay on my feet for 8 hours at work; to hop on my bike and teach the Spinning classes I enjoy so much teaching; to be in the kitchen […]

Vegan Pumpkin Overnight Oats

Just in case you haven’t noticed, it’s pumpkin season.  Pumpkin spice everything is everywhere, but the funny thing is, all that “pumpkin spice” flavored stuff, most of the time doesn’t have any pumpkin whatsoever. Which is  kind of crazy if you think about it! And a shame also, because there’s so much  you’re missing out […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash. Probably one of my favorite things about fall. I do however, have a love/hate relationship with it. I pretty much love everything about it. But every time I see one in the market, I’m hesitant to pick it up. Because I know, once I get home, it’s gonna be a battle between me, […]

Vegan Sweet & Savory Sweet Potato Pie (Gluten Free)

One of our  favorite traditions when it comes to family gatherings is, by far, doing what we call recipe “makeovers”.  It’s actually something we do all the time on the blog, but it’s particularly fun to do with traditional Holiday recipes.  We either give them a fun twist, or we modify them to make them […]

Warm Pumpkin Spice Cocktail

You would be amazed to know how many people are utterly surprised to find out we didn’t grow up celebrating Thanksgiving. That we didn’t really know much about the Holiday until we moved to the US. Which, if you think about it, makes sense, since Thanksgiving is an American Holiday and it’s not celebrated in […]

Meatless Monday – Kañiwa, Swiss Chard & Tofu Bowl

One of the best things about having worked at a natural grocery store is being able to pick your former co-workers brains when you’re looking for new products to try. A few weeks ago, as I was casually strolling down the aisles looking for some inspiration, my friend Barney approached me and asked me what […]

Vegan Plantain Stuffed Jalapeño Peppers (Gluten Free)

Of all the stories and  memories we have from growing up, the funniest ones are probably the ones involving our dad, Papi. He’s just one of those people who can make you laugh, without even trying. He has also mastered the art of driving our mom absolutely crazy, which is actually pretty funny to watch! […]

Dairy & Gluten Free S’mores Bars

When life  (or in this case, Manischewitz) gives you gluten free crackers, you have a few options: snack on them, eat them with cheese, use them as a transportation device for your favorite dip, crumble them on top of stuff… Or… you can turn them into a super awesome dessert, like S’mores bars. The kind […]
