I love to cook, but one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is recreate some of my favorite pre-vegan foods. It’s especially cool when I can recreate something that no longer exists, vegan or otherwise.
There are certain things in life that we expect to hate but end up loving. Take fruitcake, for example. Dense, heavy, chunky… not how most people would describe something delicious, right?

So you’ve got just a couple more days until Thanksgiving, everything’s ready to go. But there’s something missing. A little color. A little crunch. And a LOT of garlic!

Writing recipes is not easy. That is to say, translating recipes from “a bit of this and a splash of that” (ie my usual method of cooking) to actual measurements to be understood by the rest of the human population is, for me, rather tricky. However, I have chosen to set aside my aversion to exactitude to bring you my favorite vegan Thanksgiving recipes!
Yes, I am one of those people obsessed with all things pumpkin spice. In fact, there are times when I just need the good stuff. I can’t wait for a pie to bake. And I DEFINITELY can’t depend on everything pumpkin spice to be vegan (I’m looking at you, Starbucks). Sometimes, I’ve just gotta take things into my own hands. Read more
A word of warning now: my camera/lighting situation is abysmal. I just really enjoy cooking and thought it would be nice to share some recipes that I love. If you’re looking for a beautifully-crafted food blog, this is NOT it. If you’re after a super-easy vegan French Onion Soup, keep reading!
