Easy Vegan Snicker Bars You Can Make At Home!

Everyone loves a good chocolate bar that they can sink their teeth into. Going vegan can make this satisfying moment a distant memory as there really aren't any vegan chocolate bars out there that replicate the ones you remember. But who says you can't make them from scratch at home?! These easy vegan snickers bars are so dang good you'll be able to bring back those memories again! What I love most about this recipe is that the caramel tastes just like a traditional recipe- its thick and chewy and you could probably even make them into little candies on its own. It's so important to have a tasty caramel for a snickers recipe and this one (in my humble opinion) definitely has it! This ...

The Best Glazed Lemon Cake Donuts

Spring days are coming and there’s nothing more refreshing than lemon flavored anything! I know I love the smell of lemon essential oils diffusing in my home for that bright and fresh scent.

Vegan Apple Fritters (Better Than Tim Hortons!)

It's APPLE FRITTER TIME! If you've been following along in my Instagram stories you'll know that when I was pregnant with Elias, I had the HUGEST sweet tooth. Nearly everyday while pregnant, I'd take the kids to school and b-line to the nearest Tim Hortons and grab an apple fritter and coffee to go. Truthfully I'm shocked I didn't have gestational diabetes with all the sugar I ate when I was pregnant with him, but I do think it explains how incredibly SWEET he is! When you switch to a vegan diet, you quickly realize how the world isn't catered to you. Gone are the days of driving through many a drive-thrus (maybe that's a good thing?!) and I often find myself wanting to find vegan ...

Best 5 Things I’ve Done For Me in 2021

Hello my sweet friends, I knew when I went into my stories this afternoon to ask you whether or not you read regular ole blogs anymore that most of you would say no, LOL. But what I didn’t know is how many of you would be sweet enough to say, “I love following you but I just don’t have time to read these days!” This compelled me even more to write even though despite the response on the poll. Truthfully I was going to write anyways. 😂 2021. 25 days in and as much as I wanted it to feel “different” in the ways most New Years do, it doesn’t- at all. I’m sure we can all relate that even though we’re all moving forward in some shape or form, every day just sort of feels like a repeat of ...
