Easy Vegan Cornbread

Yes, I am a Southern woman...I have often referred to myself as a reluctant Southern Belle. But every once in a while, my roots simply cannot be denied. I was craving some cornbread a few nights ago, and I must say this is one of the best cornbreads - vegan or not - that I've tried. I like mine a little sweet, with a lot of vegan butter. (And when it comes to vegan butter, no one does it better than Miyoko's - the European Style Cultured Vegan Butter is dynamite!) This recipe was inspired by and mostly based on  this recipe on the It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken blog; I just made a couple of small tweaks to suit my tastes.

Essential Oil Spotlight: Helichrysum

Did you know Helichrysum Essential Oil is often used to prevent signs of aging? It is referred to as “The Everlasting Flower” because of its rejuvenating benefits for the skin and ability to improve the complexion. Its use in herbal health practices dates back to ancient Greece, and Helichrysum Essential Oils is still highly valued and sought after for its benefits. It is a POWERHOUSE, when it comes to its restorative properties to the skin. Read on for three easy ways to use this remarkable oil!

Buffalo Tofu Bites

This is the perfect snack for football Sundays...it's super easy, slightly sweet, definitely spicy, and oh-so-tasty. I like to use the firm tofu from Trader Joe's - you don't need to drain it, and it's nice and dense so it holds together well. I always use the whole pack so I'll have leftovers...but if you are cooking for company or a family, that plan might be moot! (Hint: I use the leftovers on pizza!)

Hash Brown Bowl with Cheesy Sauce

This is a fantastic weekend brunch dish...not exactly vegan health food - but not the worst for you either! It's chock full of flavor, thanks to the veggies and the chorizo, and the Nutritional Yeast Cheesy Sauce is the perfect topping. (Please don't ruin this with ketchup, lol!)
