Vegan Enchilada Lasagna Redux

Hello there,

I know we’ve all been there. A certain is in aroma in the air, and all of a sudden, in comes the grand idea to make a hearty Mexican meal. After a few minutes of mental conversation,  you decide you really want enchiladas, but you just don’t have the patience. Well, I’ve got the recipe for you!

Enchilada lasagna has all of the flavor and goodness of regular enchiladas but only 10% the hassle. I absolutely love this recipe because it’s simple. You sauté a few ingredients, you create layers, and you pop it in the oven. Simple! So simple in fact, it’s become one of my go to meals when I’m having company over. I’ve cooked this vegan meal for so many omnivores who are down right shocked that it is completely satisfying without any animal products.

Still not convinced? It tastes just as amazing, if not even better, as leftovers! Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Cheers & happy eating!

Jocelyn

Sunday Savings: Kite Hill, Newman’s Own, Carr’s Crackers and more!

Hello everyone,

I’ve been busy preparing my vegetable seedlings for summer. I’m so excited to garden this year—albeit slightly intimidated by the seemingly never-ending steps in the process. My basement officially looks like I’m a doomsdayTasty Bite Channa Masala, Set of 6 by World Market prepper, complete with 3 hanging shop lights and over 100 plants. I’m hoping that even in my first year I’ll ‘break even’ by producing my own vegetables, but I’ll admit it’s not the cheapest hobby to start.

I took a break from separating my seedlings to round up the freshest savings for the week. There are many new rebates and coupons right now, including one for $1.00 off Kite Hill vegan cheese! If you haven’t tried Kitehill, I urge you to pick some up on your next grocery run! The cheese has a light, rich texture that doesn’t disappoint!

Additionally, I know I’m probably late in the game, but I recently started going to Aldi’s for limited canned goods and produce. This week they even had three packs of tri-color peppers for $1.89. That’s way better than other grocery stores, including Trader Joes. I’m also pleasantly surprised by the quality. They were fresh and lasted over a week! Check out all the latest coupons and deals below!

Happy shopping & eating!

Recipe: Homestyle Green Bean Casserole

DSC_0283.JPG

Hello everyone,

 It’s 6:30pm on a weeknight. You got stuck at work, and then in traffic. You’re tired, you’re hungry, but not to worry—dinner is already done! Casserole is a perfect goto meal for busy weeknights. You can make it in advance and simply reheat and serve on the spot.

Growing up, I know that green bean casserole was a popular staple at family get together and holiday events. However, I just couldn’t get excited about the dish. It’s soggy. I don’t like mushrooms. The list goes on.

I finally decided to give traditional green bean casserole a vegan twist, using vegetable broth and nutritional yeast instead of cream of mushroom soup! Check out the step by step pictures below.

What’s your favorite weeknight recipe?

Cheers!

Savings Websites: Swagbucks Review

Hello everyone,freemoney

PSA Savers! Who doesn’t love earning points for things you already do? I’m an avid couponer, rebate app aficionado, and deal scavenger, but I cringe when it comes to web-browser plug ins.

Ebates Coupons and Cash BackAfter years of “thinking about it,” I finally signed up for Ebates, and yes, it has saved me over $100 without any additional effort on my part. So why did I wait so long? Well, fool me once I suppose…. I recently learned about Swagbucks—a very similar platform to Ebates—but with even more ways to save, and I didn’t hesitate.
