    Soy Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Zucchini Tacos with Cashew Queso

    It’s Taco Tuesday! This super simple recipe features my favorite filling for tacos and Isa’s Cashew Queso which I’ve been obsessed with since she posted it on the PPK.

    Vegan Donuts!

    Originally posted April 29, 2008. For our April potluck, the theme was breakfast. I decided to make donuts, I used the recipe found on Vegan Yum Yum (but added a few touches suggested by The Urban Housewife) The recipe was super easy and the donuts came out great. I can’t wait to start experimenting with different options (like a chocolate cake donut). Donuts Dry…
