Snickers Brownies (*vegan*)

Why is it that it’s only acceptable for kids to eat their weight in candy come Halloween? When I was younger, I used to have the perfect method to eating my Halloween Candy. The first step took place on Halloween night itself: I would visit the neighborhoods with the highest percentage of houses with bowls…

Vegan Cereal Bars

My sister has recently decided to go vegan. Which has meant that while I already have a bunch of vegan recipes on SST, I’ve had to create a few more savory recipes for her to enjoy with the family. (Because no matter how great it seems to me, she doesn’t just want to eat dessert…

Unfortunately, said best friend is in Italy right now on vacation– where she discovered, might I add, that banana gelato is…

Almond Butter Overnight Oats

I’m going to keep this post as simple as these overnight oats. Basically, these oats are healthy yet delicious. They’re filling and will keep you satisfied til lunch, but won’t stuff you so much that you’ll feel queasy (as the 1 1/2 buttermilk waffles I ate for breakfast today did to me). They’re gluten free,…
