Vegan Cuts Snack Box Review!

Vegan Cuts Snack Box Review!

Have you heard of Vegan Cuts?  They offer great deals on vegan products, as well as monthly snack and beauty boxes.  They were kind enough to send me the March snack box to review.  Let’s get right to the goods! Since I’m such a sweets addict I decided to start off the review with these [...]

C’est La Vegan on Instagram

C’est La Vegan on Instagram

I’m the first to admit that I’m not the most technologically savvy person, and I feel like I’ve been out of things for over a year, so cut me some slack when I tell you that I’m just finally starting to use Instagram.  Yes, I’m very behind the curve here. Now that I’m up to [...]

C’est La Video: Green Smoothie

I’ve been wanting to do a post about green smoothies for a while, and I was way overdue for shooting a new video, so I figured I’d tackle both at once!  With the New Year upon us and so many people making resolutions to eat a more healthy diet, I thought I’d show you guys [...]

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread Mix

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread Mix

As much as I love to bake, I just don’t have the energy to do it lately unless it’s for an order.  Cooking in general, as well as walking, standing, breathing…  they’re all much harder these days as my belly continues to grow. When we were doing our Sunday shopping at Trader Joe’s I saw [...]

Breakfast for Dinner!

Breakfast for Dinner!

We had some friends over for dinner this past weekend, and I thought it would be fun to make breakfast for dinner.  Fortunately, they were totally up for it, and not even knowing that we were planning on making mimosas, they brought me some non-alcoholic champagne!  Needless to say, I was very happy about that.  [...]

Ryan and I are headed out of town next week for a MUCH needed vacation to Walt Disney World!  The trip is to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday, and we’ll be meeting my parents and my sister and her family down in Florida.  I’ve been doing a ton of research on vegan options in the [...]

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones

This recipe comes from the book Simply Scones that I was telling you guys about on Monday.  The name of this one had me at hello, if you know what I mean.  I have to admit that I don’t think I would have ever thought to make a peanut butter scone, as much as I [...]

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

My mom recently gave me an adorable little cookbook called Simply Scones that has recipes for the titular biscuit-like treats and spreads to serve alongside them.  Both my mom and I love scones (and bread, and cake, and cookies…).  It’s really out of our hands I think; it must be the Bohemian blood or something. [...]

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I made these muffins over the weekend as a quick breakfast before we headed out to the Huntington gardens with Ryan’s parents.  If you live in the L.A. area and you haven’t been to the Huntington, you should definitely check it out.  They have some great exhibits going on right now, and the gardens themselves [...]

Mint Sugar Fruit Salad

Mint Sugar Fruit Salad

I’m still working my way through showing you guys everything I served at our Bears’ Brunch, even though we’re long past Bears talk since they blew the game last weekend.  My nephew is a Steelers fan (we’re not sure where that came from), so we’ll all be rooting for them in the Super Bowl. I’ll [...]

Pumpkin Crumb Cake with Pecan Streusel

Pumpkin Crumb Cake with Pecan Streusel

I wanted to make a coffee cake for our Bears brunch a couple weekends ago, and after scouring my cookbooks for a suitable recipe (easy to make, feeds a small crowd, tasty), this one from my beloved Veganomicon seemed perfect.  I’d never made this before, but it sounded so good that I had to give [...]

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

It’s been pretty chilly here in the mornings and at night, at least by L.A. standards, and I’ve been trying to keep warm with lots of hot tea and cocoa. My mom used to make a homemade hot cocoa mix that I would drink all winter long back in Chicago.  I need to get the [...]
