New Years Resolutions!

New Years Resolutions!
After the holiday binging and candy making I decided to start the new year off with healthy, low fat recipes. I create a lot of fun recipes but in my own life I actually adhere to a more low fat, whole foods diet.

I try to create recipes that will appeal to a wide variety of people at various stages of healthy vegan eating. But over the next couple of months I'd like to focus more on whole foods and oil free cooking so hopefully I'll have a lot of fun food for you.

Quinoa Enchilada Casserole

Oooooo this was GOOD! This recipe contains, low fat baked tortilla chips, quinoa, kidney beans, corn, salsa, spices and a fat free cheezy sauce on top! My family LOVED this recipe, it is very mild and kid friendly, but for those spice lovers you easily could add some heat to this one.

Vanilla Coffee Cake Strussel Muffins (oil free, low fat)

My husband LOVED these muffins, he is my sweet tooth tester. These muffins contain absolutely NO added refined fat. They are made with a combination of turbinado and liquid sweetener to give a delicious soft interior and crisp exterior. The topping contains no oil, it has oats, maple syrup and pecans that make up the bulk of the recipe for the topping. Icing is silken tofu, soymilk, turbinado and vanilla.

****My husband claimed these tasted like his favorite cinnamon rolls from the Mall, Yeah they are THAT GOOD!!!

Nearly Fat Free Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!

Cookies are extremely difficult to make without oil or some sort of fat, but these cookies are amazing.

My husband LOVES chocolate chip cookies, he is very picky about his chocolate chip cookies and he has never been a fan of my low fat versions, until this recipe!!

This was actually an accident, I used the recipe from the muffins and created this recipe and oh my is it fantastic!! They even have a little bit of a crunch like full fat cookies!!! Truly amazing!!!

They dark tint comes from the whole wheat flour, turbinado sugar, and maple syrup. 

Christmas Candies & Desserts

Christmas Treats

After a little break for the holidays with my parents I decided to post my newest holiday creations. Starting from the bottom: peanut butter cups, peanut butter fudge, english toffee top: chocolate carmels, turtles, peppermint truffles and the center is mint truffles.

These were delectable!!! Recipes will be coming to the website soon:

Coconut Cream Pie

I am very proud of this recipe, it was extremely rich and creamy. It had a beautiful coconut flavor and the cashew whip cream turned out light, fluffy and delicious!!

I'm usually a die hard chocolate fan but this was truly delectable!! YUM!

Blueberry Surprise
My husband's mom makes a very good blueberry jello with whip cream, it was one of my husbands favorite side dishes. So I set out to create a vegan version and this turned out AMAZING!! The jello has lemon juice and is made with agar, a seaweed, then I added blueberries and turbinado. The cream is a cashew whip cream recipe I came up with that is light and fluffy. It took many attempts because cashew cream tends to be sticky and thick. This was divine!

We had a delicious Christmas dinner similar to Thanksgiving. My parents were here for a week and so I fell behind on my blogging. These recipes will also be coming out soon.
