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 [...]

Nelly’s energy Truffle Bars – Review and Giveaway!

So when I was recently contacted by Nelly’s energy Truffle Bars about doing a review and giveaway I was VERY excited.  And I’m [...]

Coconut Lemon Trifle with Fresh Berries

Coconut Lemon Trifle with Fresh Berries

A few weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that I was making a berry trifle, and I took a ton of photos so I could show you guys the process.  It’s not really a recipe per se, more like a bunch of recipes all thrown together. Once you make up each component of [...]

Derby Pie

Derby Pie

In honor of Pi Day, I present Wolfie’s Derby Pie from La Dolce Vegan.  I’ve been wanting to make this pie for years, and I finally got around to it.  This is the second pie I’ve ever baked with a real crust – as opposed to a graham cracker crust or a Crostata. After making a [...]

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Right on the heels of Part 1 of my Oscar post comes Part 2!  Here’s the “Argochoke Dip: Go Cluck Yourself”, which I posted about a few weeks ago.  This was a big hit.  We had a couple vegetarians at the party, but no other vegans.  In case you’d be worried to serve this to [...]

Oscars 2013 – Part 1

Oscars 2013 – Part 1

I did eight dishes inspired by the best picture nominees for our Oscar party this year.  I planned nine, but Pearl didn’t want to nap so there was no time for the “Zero Dark Meat Meatballs”, a reprise of “There Will Not be Blood Meatballs.”  Oh well… Above is a shot of the almost full [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 1 – Butterscotch Brownie

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 1 – Butterscotch Brownie

I was recently sent a copy of Betty Goes Vegan by Annie Dan & Shannon of the awesome blog, “Meet the Shannons.”  I’m a huge fan of the blog, so I was very excited to get this book!  If you’re not familiar with the Shannons, they’ve been veganizing Betty Crocker recipes – Annie explains it [...]

S’more Bars

S’more Bars

Continuing with my Oscar party dishes, I’ll be making these S’more Bars for the film Amour.  Unlike the Les Mis bread, we’re going full on title pun with this one.  Which means they should probably be S’mour bars for the sake of the party. These are way too easy to make for being as good [...]

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 [...]

Allison’s Gourment Artisan Chocolate Give-Away!

UPDATE: The winner of the give-away is Kari, who said – I would love to try Allison’s truffles. I’m not terribly good at making them myself!  Congratulations, Kari! It’s our last day of give-aways here at C’est La Vegan, and I think we’ve saved the best for last!  That’s coming from a chocoholic with a [...]

Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

Looking at the calendar yesterday I realized that we’re a lot further into November than I’d realized.  That means Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I’d better start figuring out what I’m going to make! With that in mind, I thought I’d go through past posts that would be appropriate for the holiday.  Let’s [...]

Vanilla Raspberry Cake

Vanilla Raspberry Cake

I actually made this cake a couple weeks ago, but I’ve been so caught up in thinking about Thanksgiving that I didn’t post it right away.  As you guys probably already know, I’m pretty fond of the baking mixes from Trader Joe’s, especially lately as I just haven’t had as much energy for baking or [...]

Spooky Witches’ Fingers

Spooky Witches’ Fingers

Our friends Shawn and Alix hosted their Fourth Annual Halloween Horror Movie Marathon over the weekend, and I made these spooky Witches’ Finger cookies to bring along.  We were both pretty beat (Ryan spent the entire day painting the nursery, and I’m just generally beat these days), but we were able to stay for one [...]
