Ten Favorite Vegan Skincare Products

Last year I posted about my battle with hormonal acne (spoiler alert: switching to natural skincare and beauty products helped – a lot.) Since then, I’ve found a few new favorite products that really work well for me and my sensitive skin, so I figured...

Vegan Tamales Unwrapped: Red Chile Jackfruit Tamales

Vegan tamales are a hug your mouth gives your belly. Anyone who’s ever attempted to make them at home knows this isn’t a dish to be taken lightly – and if you make tamales, you do it from a place of love. So I was super stoked to have the opportunity...

Veganized: Christina Tosi’s Corn Cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar

Vegan Bowl Attack! Loaded Potato Breakfast Bowl Recipe

Friday the 13th Slasher Smores Cupcakes

It’s Friday the 13th, y’all! Tonight I plan on cuddling up in front of the TV with a cup of cocoa and a cupcake and relaxing to the sweet crackle-crackle sound of campers being cremated alive in their own sleeping bags. Ah yes, the horrors of summer camp,...
