Happy birthday Dad! It was my dad’s birthday on Friday, so I figured I’d make him a cake for the occasion. The way that I most like to show my love and appreciation is through food, and this year Dad gets a fabulous vegan lemon coconut cake. I’ve always had a sweet tooth. And nothing… Continue reading Lovely Lemon Cake with Whipped Coconut Cream Frosting
I am super pumped on the creativity that sparked on this sushi adventure. Making sushi rolls vegan is pretty easy.

I prefer the latter. Happy Two Thousand Sixteen 🙂 My New Years Eve celebrations were the tamest I’ve had in a long… Continue reading Bacon Truffles and a Happy New Year!
It has been a LOOOOONG time since I posted… I have been slacking. Mostly because I moved home and have fallen into a pattern of gym, dinner, Game of Thrones (until we caught up), then sleep.
