Vegan Applesauce Spice Cupcakes With Maple Cinnamon Icing


I have a love for apples in deserts. There is no other fruit out there (except maybe coconut) that I find myself wanting in my pies, cakes, and cobblers (also my peanut butter!). Applesauce spice cake is especially good to me because it’s so moist, it’s like eating a decadent pound cake…without all the pounds! Using apple cider vinegar in this recipe helps bring out even more of the apple flavor, but make sure that it is unfiltered and organic!

Vegan Pink Lemonade Champagne Cupcakes


When I asked my friend Chelsea’s boyfriend what sort of things she was into, for the cupcakes, his only response was “pink”. I thought to myself, “That is such a guy response,” but I needed more.

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting and a Cinnamon Date Caramel Drizzle on Top


I can not speak enough words to tell you how delicious, moist, and absolutely delightful these cupcakes were. I keep going back for more…but it’s ok because it’s my birthday! Well, not today but they are FROM my birthday, so that should count for something. I brought these cupcakes over to my parents house today so that my Dad and I could have a mini co-op birthday cupcake moment (his birthday is on the 17th) and he ate two of these cupcakes in nearly two bites! I have never seen him eat cupcakes that way before Read more »

First post and it’s for those HOT summer days, CANTALOUPE SORBET the easy way

cantaloupe sorbet

I already have a lot of things to write about, but the first post is going to be about something to keep us all cool during these long hot summer days (and nights!!!), cantaloupe sorbet. Sorbet is one of my favorite iced treats because what it lacks in milk, it makes up for in dynamic palate shaking flavors. I have always felt that milk can take away from the effectiveness of an iced treat when the temperature is above 100. Read more »
