Slow Cooker Apple Pecan Blondie Oatmeal

appleBlondie

I think there’s something about the cooler, rainy weather, as well as the orange and red leaves that makes me crave the butterscotch-y flavor of blondies. There’s nothing wrong with brownies, but there’s so much more you can do with blondies. They are the blank check of the dessert world in my opinion. You can go with fruits, nuts, chocolate chips […]

My aunt used to make the most wonderful applesauce cake every year in the fall. It was unbelievably moist and had the perfect blend of spices to get you in the mood to take a drive to look at the fall foliage. I love the color changes of the leaves. This is my attempt to get […]

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Coffeecake Oatmeal

I’m back on my oatmeal obsession just in time for Vegan Month of Food. I realized fall and winter will bring even more flavors into my oatmeal mix. Plus, is it really an obsession if it doesn’t raise its head every once in a while? In case you didn’t already know this about me, I […]

kheer-SM

I’m on a summer dessert kick and I started thinking about kheer because it’s such a great cooling dessert that deserves to be veganized. I’ve made kheer oatmeal, but I had never made proper kheer. Kheer is an Indian rice pudding flavored with cardamom that’s speckled with nuts and raisins. One of the things I like […]

Vegan Creamsicle Tapioca Pudding

It’s been the hottest June I can remember and all I can think of is eating something cold and not heating up the house. I wanted to try cooking something with the new Sugar Free Vanilla So Delicious Coconut Milk. Since I use unsweetened milk as my go-to I found the sugar-free vanilla milk to be a […]

Slow Cooker Banana Creme Pie Oatmeal

bcp

We’ve been eating a ton of bananas. So many, in fact, that I haven’t been able to cook much with them. Last week we didn’t eat any, so be prepared for a few banana oatmeals this week. This oatmeal gets its ‘crust’ from a topping of crushed graham crackers. If you don’t have any try some granola […]

wedOats

I lived in New Orleans for 12 years. One of the things I looked forward to was the snowball stands re-opening when the weather got warm. They had dozens of flavors and even more combos. My favorite was the wedding cake flavor which is a mostly vanilla almond flavor. Every good snowball stand makes their […]
