Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake

Life can get pretty crazy sometimes, and time can seem to slip through your fingers in the blink of an eye. For example, the past few weeks, I’ve been a little lax on posting because amongst preparing for college, traveling to visit two different sides of my family, attempting to fit in a few  last…

Toasted Coconut Banana Truffles

Girl Scout cookies are my absolute weakness. Samoas especially. There’s never been a better marriage made than that between toasted caramel and chocolate.

But otherwise, why would you ever substitute anything for the buttery, flaky crust that makes apple, pumpkin, and chocolate…

Pumpkin Spice Cake

Are you good at carving pumpkins? I have the most vivid memories of my dad helping my sisters and me carve pumpkins when we were younger. We would have a chance to think up designs, then we may attempt to cut out the stem-part of the pumpkin before our dad took over with his giant…
