The Beauty of Scrambled Tofu

noFeatured

In my pre-vegan days eggs were often my go to ingredient for a quick dinner. Now that I’m vegan, I still make some of the same convenience foods only I use the magic of tofu instead of eggs.

Crockpot Lavender Rose Cocoa

I originally made this as a Valentine cocoa, but romance shouldn’t be limited to just one day. Surprise your someone special with the yummy dessert cocoa. The lavender and rose flavors blend together to form its own taste that’s not as floral as you think. I used lavender extract which I got at Savory Spice Shop, but […]
