Top 13 Recipes of 2013!

Top 13 Recipes of 2013

It wouldn’t be the end of the year if there wasn’t a top recipe list on here, right? Last year’s was awesome, but we may have topped it! Take a look at which recipes I made this year were most popular. Warning: You may need a tissue for that drool dribble by the end of it. ;)

13. BBQ Party Pack- The perfect solution to bring some delectable food to your friend or family’s BBQ! No need to eat a tasteless, rubbery burger patty.

12. Vegan Ceviche- I can’t believe it took me this long to make a vegan ceviche, but I am SO glad that I did. This came out insanely good!

11. Mini Pizza Pies!-  Fun, kid and dad-friendly, not to mention DELICIOUS! Also, get ready for a few more pizzas on this list. ;)

10. Mediterranean Pesto Pizza- Need a change-up from your red sauced-veggie pizza? Try out this Pesto Pizza!

9. Mozzarella Mac Deep Dish Pizza- When I see that people actually made this pizza, I have to say, I get SO incredibly excited. It was definitely one of my favorite recipes from Born to Mac MoFo.

Vegan Cuts Snack Box Review + Gift Ideas!

Obviously, there are a lot of holidays happening this month. So, I thought that now would be a great time to review Vegan Cuts Snack Box! I’ve done this once before, many moons ago; but the season of giving is upon us and this subscription makes for a fantastic gift. I’m going to cover some things that I’ve gotten in the last few months, as opposed to one box, and I hope that it gives you an idea of how awesome these are.

Plus, I’ve eaten many items that I didn’t have a chance to photograph before devouring. Oopsies! Before I get down to specifics, let me tell you some general info about these Snack Boxes. Vegan Cuts offers these as a monthly subscription box, meaning you get one delicious box of snacks every month. You can cancel your subscription at any time, although I’m not sure why you’d want to!

Some of my favorite items from the last couple of boxes have been the Black Pepper Snap Pea Crisps (which had a label misprint, by the company), the huge container of Go Veggie! Vegan Parmesan, and seriously, I fell in love with Michy’s Pumpkin Eater Cookie. After eating some of those Snap Pea crisps on my drive to Lake Havasu, I bought another bag of them THE SAME DAY. My dad was even a fan of them (that says a lot). The Stash Tea has been perfect for the cooler weather, here.

The variety of snacks in these bags is pretty fantastic, and I certainly think that it’s worth the price. There is almost always a bag of chippy-goodness, different brands, etc.; while the rest of the items range from sweet treats to raw bars to cool condiments and samples of pancake mixes. I definitely can’t forget to mention the coupons that come with it; one month there was a coupon for a free, full-sized bottle of Califia Non-dairy milk! That’s an extra 4-5 dollar value, and it keeps shipping costs down for us.

Over all, I’m super happy with this monthly snack delivery, and it’s something that I look forward to each month. Vegan Cuts also has a pretty incredible Beauty Box that showcases cruelty-free, vegan beauty products. Finding vegan snacks is one thing, but finding high quality, vegan beauty products is a feat in itself. I find that box super helpful!Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Review

Full Disclosure: I received these snack boxes for free, because I am the photographer for Vegan Cuts. There are affiliate links in this post. This means that if you order through my link, I get a small percentage. This helps me to keep this blog going! All opinions are honest and my own. :)

Almond Joy Cookie Bites

As I said before my blog is going to look a tad different this month than most others in the past. You may have seen that I’ve done guest blog posts on other blogs before, but in January, I’m going to have a few great bloggers post on mine! Today, I’m hosting the hilarious, creative and adorable blogger, Ashlae from Oh, Ladycakes. While most of her posts involve incredible-looking baked desserts and breakfasts, she also comes up with gorgeous savory dishes every once-in-a-while. I couldn’t be happier to have her on Vegan Yack Attack today, sharing this awesome recipe for Almond Joy Cookie Bites with everyone!

Almond joy cookie bites

Hi! I’m Ashlae, the lady behind the blog Oh, Ladycakes. I’m pretty stoked to be here today to share one of my all time favorite breakfast recipes – almond joy cookie bites (in case you couldn’t tell from the photo above) (or the title of the post).

As much as I enjoy savoring a hearty breakfast at my dining room table, most mornings I’m grabbing it on the go and racing out the door. And on these particular mornings, I like a little something sweet to help jumpstart my day. This is where cookies come into play. But not butter and sugar-loaded cookies – cookies packed with natural sugars and good for you add-ins, like chocolate and coconut. And almonds. I don’t know if you’re aware but the three of them together make a pretty awesome team. A chocolatey almond coconut goodness kinda team.

But, beware! It’s easy to grab a few handfuls and shove them into your coat pockets (don’t tell me I’m the only one who does this). I’d advise against doing this, as these are meant to tide you over until lunch – not ruin your lunch. If you’re grabbing them on the go like me, pack a small bag the night before. Or else you’ll be setting yourself up for diet sabotage much too early in the day. Consider yourself warned.

If you’re looking for real deal almond joys, you can find ‘em here. And if you prefer raw foods to processed, keep your eyes peeled for a raw version of these babies on Oh, Ladycakes next week.

Thanks for having me, Jackie! You’re a gem <3
