Vegan Blueberry Muffins

blueberry muffins2How is it already THURSDAY?!  Wait…it’s almost 10pm which means it’s pretty much Friday.  This week has been such a blur.  My website has been giving me issues and I haven’t had one bit of inspiration in the kitchen… So, I did the only thing I knew to do…I baked muffins and pulled out my old culinary school books and searched for healthy inspiration!  Stay tuned… I’m feeling inspired!

Cornbread Pancakes & a Cranberry Cinnamon Compote

cornbread pancakes2OMG – this recipe is HEAVEN in my mouth.  A friendly reminder: I am from the south and to say that I love cornbread would be a huge understatement.  I will tell you, my mom makes THE BEST cornbread you’ll ever eat.  Hands down.  THE BEST.  Sadly, I’ve yet to perfect her cornbread.  My problem with cornbread is this:  I refuse to make a big pone of cornbread (unless I’m making it for a large group of people, which normally gets turned into dressing) because I would literally sit and eat the whole thing with lots of butter smeared on every single piece (or bite) I eat.  What man wants a wife that sits around eating cornbread and butter all day long?  That’s not an attractive quality, K?!  Continue reading “Cornbread Pancakes & a Cranberry Cinnamon Compote”

These Apple Raisin Cinnamon Rolls are a PERFECT way to start off your weekend!  Trust me on this.  My hubs called me yesterday while I was in the middle of making them… I said, “Babe!  Guess what I’m making you?!”  Him: “I don’t know, what?”  Me: “Cinnamon Rolls!!!!”  Him: “Really?!  Awesome!”  Me: “Yes!  And they’re VEGAN!!!”  Him: “Total silence…followed by a BIG sigh….” Continue reading “Apple Raisin Cinnamon Rolls”

Vegan Strawberry Muffins

We are some strawberry eating people in the summertime!  Gaby LOVES them!!  And loves to eat a bowl of diced berries every day.  When she opens the refrigerator and points at the strawberries with a BIG smile, I have no problem at all giving her as many as she wants… Here’s a few reason why we eat a handful or two of strawberries everyday: Continue reading “Vegan Strawberry Muffins”

Vegan Banana Pancakes

My 18 month old little girlie, Gaby is pretty much living off of what I call the “4 P’s” – pasta, potatoes, peas, and pancakes.  And occasionally she will eat some wild salmon.  I make these pancakes for her in big batches because she LOVES them!  She knows exactly where I keep them in the refrigerator, so when she gets hungry she pulls me into the kitchen (only to open the refrigerator door) and she helps herself to a pancake or two!  I normally don’t put any syrup on hers because these are sweet enough if you use a super ripe banana, but every now and then she’ll let me smear a little bit of almond butter on it for her and she eats it right up!  I have to find ways to sneak some protein in her diet since my little diva isn’t a big meat eater.  😉 Continue reading “Vegan Banana Pancakes”
