SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Macaroni and Cheese

WHAT?! MACARONI AND CHEESE?! YES! Of course! It wouldn’t be the holidays without this luscious, creamy, pasta-y, cheesy goodness we all know and love. In fact, a bad macaroni and cheese has been known to ruin an otherwise delicious family dinner (same thing with mashed potatoes, but that’s for another post). Thankfully, this macaroni and…

APPS ALL AROUND! Queso Blanco

This is literally the easiest vegan queso blanco recipe ever. So easy, in fact, I’m not even going to add a story to it. Just know that you can thank my queso cravings for this one. P.S. This is perfect for your Game Day bash, ESPECIALLY if you have any vegan attendees. I got you…

SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Pumpkin Cornbread

Now, I know I said I would keep Scrumptious Sides to 5 ingredients or less, but I had to make an exception for this. It’s practically impossible to come up with a delicious, gluten-free, allergen-friendly cornbread recipe with just 5 ingredients. Too many substitutions. It might be possible, but I have yet to come up…

COOKIE CORNER! Double Chocolate Crinkles

Alright, my first cookie recipe! I love making these cookies because everyone loves chocolate and everyone loves sugar, so the fact that they’re basically a chocolate ball rolled in powdered sugar makes them practically irresistible. One quick note about these cookies is that they are an oil-based cookie, so they are automatically dairy free. In…

Spinach Dip (Always A Crowd Pleaser)

You know how each family has their own little food traditions that everyone follows, NO MATTER WHAT? Yeah? Well, ours is spinach dip. And it’s not just any type of spinach dip. You can’t buy this spinach dip in the store. No. You have to make it. Well, not you specifically. Just any family member…

Ranch Dressing

Okay, I am actually very happy with this recipe. When I first learned I had developed a dairy allergy (like, no animal milk what-so-ever… Goodbye goat cheese! 😥 ), I was really heartbroken because it was the one allergy I felt like I was impervious to. I really don’t know why, I just did. Anyways,…

A Quick Review: Black Bean Pasta

  It’s weird. It tastes chewy. BUT, it cooks like regular pasta. Remember to always salt the water. Unlike gluten-full pasta, you’ll never make too much of this just because it is impossible to do so. The thickness and length of the noodles are so small, an entire bag could just feed a family of…

Paleo-/ Vegan-Friendly Cream of Carrot Soup

It’s that time of year again where soup becomes a viable option for body sustainability. It is warm, comforting, and above all, easy to eat. Really. All you have to do is swallow. Any true lazy person would agree with me. Soup is the ULTIMATE lazy person food. You just throw stuff into a pot…

Vegan-Friendly Banana Bread Pudding

Now, I will eat anything that has come from an animal. Eggs, milk, cheeses, meat, and even the foot if I’m in the mood. My mom is Jamaican, so I grew up eating pretty much almost every part of an animal. I enjoy it all, but there are times where it does get to me…
