There are matches that are made in heaven, and just off the top of my head I can think of a few: fries and ketchup, cookies and milk, chips and salsa, and yes... the famous... peanut butter and jelly. It's a childhood classic for a reason, and for me, the fun of eating means going back to those early favorites. The recipe we're sharing today, which was filmed and created specially for our friends at the amazing non-profit Vegan Outreach, is the perfect combo of one of Carlos's favorites (French toast), and mine (pb and j). This means that just in time for Valentine's Day, we decided to make a love hybrid-love baby-breakfast goodie.... 'cause nothing is more romantic than breakfast. Enter the pb and j stuffed French toast, trust me when I tell you you're not prepared for the amazing layers of flavor you'll get with this dish. It's pure bliss on a plate.Read More
One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is what do you eat on a daily basis as a vegan. For me it's a no brainer since I actually have more variety in my diet now than before I was vegan, but I completely understand how this can be a complete mystery to someone eating a standard meat centered diet. I can understand it because I was once that person that thought all vegetarians and vegans ate were beans and rice. Breakfast especially can seem daunting if you are anything like I was, a bacon and egg breakfast eater all the way. Today I'm de-mystifying vegan breakfasts for you, and trust me it's quite possibly the easiest meal to veganize with just a couple of adjustments. It's also a meal in which you'll get to eat vegan versions of your favorites more than you ever thought possible.

Is it just me or does everyone else feel like making cookies the second December hits and we get the first glimpses of the Holidays in action? I used to love making Christmas cookies as a kid with my mom. There's something so special about that smell coming out of the oven, not to mention the utter bliss of eating cookie dough. Especially, when it includes one of my favorite ingredients on this planet, peanut butter. These are so simple to make and you can use a standing mixer to make the process even easier, but a bowl and wooden spoon will also get the job done. These are rustic and so delicious you'll be making batch after batch.Read More
