Black Bean Plantain Veggie Burgers with Avocado

Happy May everyone! I promise you summer is JUST around the corner and all those backyard veggie burger bashes are yours to be enjoyed. Well I think Cinco de Mayo is a perfect holiday to kick off my summertime veggie burger spirit. And this new recipe is one I am kind of swooning over.

The Best Ice Cream. Dairy-Free.

Today I am sharing my recipe for the bowl that wins the "most likely to be devoured" award for all of spring and summertime months. At least that is the consensus in my house, that is. Just dip a big spoon into this big bowl of frosty pink deliciousness and I think you will agree. This is my favorite.

The best ice cream is.... Watermelon Blender Soft Serve! Get my recipe, a how-to video and a book launch update..


HHVK is Here.

We made it! The day is finally here. April 28th has arrived. Well almost, since I am publishing this a day ahead of time. But that means that right now the bookstore elves are unpacking my book from those large caramel-colored boxes and preparing to stock those freshly printed babies in the "cooking" section of a bookstore near you. For me, today, the night before book launch feels like Christmas Eve. Except this time, I get to be Santa Claus and bring my one shiny new toy to YOU guys.

To celebrate the arrival of Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen I have a few things to share!

- Two cookbook trailers, and one that is quite "magical" and maybe a bit "enchanted."
- Some new photos of me and my new BFF book.
- TWO cool virtual parties on the 28th that YOU can attend!

So pour yourself a smoothie, frost some cupcakes, whip up some avocado toast, warm up a matcha latte or pop some cookies in the oven because I want to celebrate this day with YOU guys, the amazing people who have truly made this possible for me....


BIG Vegan Cheese Guide + Reviews!

I am SO excited to finally bring you guys this post: my BIG Vegan Cheese Guide and Review! Over the past few months (and years really) I have been doing extremely intensive research, all in the name of blogging, on the topic of vegan cheese brands. Yes, I dove in cracker first to sniff out and nibble every vegan cheese brand under the sun. All for you guys. OK, and I TOTALLY loved this research project too!

I tried some new brands and also chat about brands I have used for a while now. Get all the info in my big vegan cheese guide!...


10 Amazing Things You Will Find in My New Cookbook

The muffins above are a batch I made yesterday in my brand new jumbo muffin tin. Love that thing. Because really, one regular sized muffin is just never enough, right? Jumbo sized: perfect. The recipe I used was my Orange Glow Muffins from my new book. I love cooking from my cookbook and sharing the photos with you. I cannot wait until you guys can share your HHVK photos with me!

One Week! In less than a week (April 28th) Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen will be in bookstores and I really hope you can snag yourself a copy very close to the release date! I will be having a few virtual PARTIES to celebrate the book. Lets just say that the 28th is going to be a "party" kind of day online. I am doing a Facebook party, details in yesterday's post, and I might be hosting a, wait for it, Periscope party. Because I LOVE that new App. Still brainstorming ideas though. More details on that in my next post.

But for today, I wanted to share with you guys ten amazing things you will find in my new book to get you excited about diving into the pages. And delicious recipes are just the beginning!..
