Sweet Designs Chocolatier – Review

Puffed Quinoa Bark

Looks yummy, right? “Mmmm, chocolate!” was the first thing I thought when I received the sample package from Sweet Designs Chocolatier to review. The company isn’t vegan, they also make milk chocolate, but they have a nice selection of certified organic, vegan and gluten-free 70% dark chocolate barks and an assortment box—with truffles and other goodies!

It still looks pretty much like it did... Read More

Vegan Casseroles – Review & Giveaway

Vegan Casseroles

Plant Power Cookbook by Nava Atlas – Review

Curried Chickpea & Escarole

I’m a big fan of Nava Atlas’ cookbooks. I had a few in my bookcase already and love how straight-forward and easy to make her recipes are. I had the immense pleasure of meeting Nava in person last year, and again this year, and found that we have the same style of cooking. Her books are so intuitive to me, but I also found that they’re intuitive, period. When I... Read More
