Salted Caramel Coffee Syrup

More and more I love making my own coffee at home. This is partially because I have a horrible makeup habit, and that money needs to come from somewhere. I take that money I used to spend on Starbucks three or four times a week and funnel that elsewhere. The problem with Starbucks is that […]

Strawberry Shortcake Oatmeal

I am someone who loves big taste. I enjoy things that taste like they have a ton of calories – but don’t. I also hate artificial flavors and sweeteners. This is a recipe that tastes amazing with big rich flavors, however is low calorie and healthy. When I feel like being a little decadent I […]

Cococcino – Product Review

Cococcino Coconut Milk Iced Coffee Mocha Flavor So Delicious Approx $2.49 retail Chocolate, creamy perfection, Cococcino is the coconut coffee beverage that has changed how I feel about Starbucks. Let me explain. I used to be a Starbucks consumer. I wanted a sweet chocolate coffee drink? I would run in for a mocha. But then, […]

Root Beer BBQ Sauce

Root beer barbeque sauce is a staple at this time of year. Mine has a few twists and turns. I always use a natural soda, like Virgil’s root beer. I hate artificial colors, flavors, or any of that. I also included options to use a natural version of Dr. Pepper or even ginger beer! Experiment […]

Olive Potato Salad

There is so much about this salad that I love, a lot! The saltiness of the olives and capers is delicious, but best of all is the dressing. By using dark molasses as a touch of sweetener, you are adding a huge depth of unexpected flavor. The creaminess of the potatoes with the crunch of […]

Coconut Berry Refresher

  In the picture you see, I used a combination of strawberries and rosemary. I also like blueberries with rosemary, strawberries with basil, strawberries with mint, blackberries with thyme… really the combinations are so limitless! This comes together in no time, is low calorie and yet is a nice decadent treat. Think about serving this […]

Trader Joes Potato Chips with South American Style Seasoning $2.29 Gluten Free Yesterday, while shopping at Trader Joes, Jason and I spotted a new product, Trader Joes potato chips with South American style seasoning.  I wanted nothing more than to keep you, our readership informed, so with an air of great sacrifice I grabbed a […]

Reed’s Spiced Apple Brew Review

Now that I am pregnant, having a cocktail or drink is 100% not an option. But, sometimes I still enjoy having something special to drink while I relax. In my pre-baby days, I really loved hard apple cider. When I saw this, I checked the label – this had no artificial color or flavor (score) […]

Mexican Fusion Chopped Salad

Here is an easy, refreshing dinner. Not only will this make you feel full, it is full of flavor, fiber, protein and antioxidants. It uses a lot of southwestern flavors, but I can’t in good conscience call this ‘Mexican’ as it is not authentic. I included two options for dressing – one has fat and […]

Throwback Thursday! Chorizo Sloppy Joes

We have another Throwback Thursday here at the Vegan Taste! Growing up, I loved Sloppy Joes. My mom would make them from scratch and they were one of my favorite meals. When I moved out on my own, I used Manwich. I am sure that somewhere in our lives most of us have used Manwich […]
