Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie with Coconut Cookie Crust

Have you heard the notion that we live our lives in chapters? I'm thrilled with today's chapter in my life because I'm calling it my "Vegan dreamy, chocolate creamy" chapter. Yes, going vegan is not without it struggles...but it's not without its triumphs as well. And Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie with a Coconut Cookie Crust? That's seriously what I refer to as a triumph!

Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies bring together two seemingly diverse flavors, coconut and oatmeal, with a little chocolate added for good measure. Patty Griffin sings about making pies as a way of connecting socially in the kitchen.

Avocado and Jalapeño Grilled Cheese Sandwich

You may not have all the ingredients on-hand, but once you do, you can delight in the simple steps to make this delicious vegan sandwich over and over again.

Mounds of tender homemade pizza dough with a crunchy, garlicky crust infused with hearty slices of spicy pepperoni and cheese is what this Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread is all about! I know today is the beginning of Lent which means a time of sacrifice, but that's the beautiful thing about begin vegan. Every day is a meat-free, dairy-free, cruelty-free Fat Tuesday when you're vegan!

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Covered Pretzels

February is a time for love which means you might not want to spend all your time in the kitchen. Peanut Butter and Chocolate Covered Pretzels. Dark chocolate infused with peanut butter dipped over a salty pretzel and decorated with a few sprinkles to set the mood. It's enough to make the faint of heart grab their smelling salts, fan their face and say, "Oh my!"

Easy Vegan Rangoon Dip

Today we're talking about unrequited love. Specifically, the kind of unbridled passion that leads a person to create a vegan dip replacing a long-lost, but not forgotten desire for a less than healthy, less than vegan dip. I know we all have our own version of guilty pleasures, this dip just takes the guilty out and focuses on the pleasure part!
