Are you feeling refreshed after getting an extra hour of sleep last night? Say what you want about Daylight Savings Time, but I think everyone enjoys getting an extra hour of sleep once in awhile! I’m not sure it makes up for the super early evenings though… So I’m spending this rainy, gray day planning for my week and reviewing finances. What fun! I also spent some time checking on current promotions for my favorite rebate apps and savings websites. Check out the fall perks and full November Savings below!

And, I am sooooooo excited that Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo is now being sold online via. Amazon.com. I was distraught when Target pulled these products earlier this year. I just orderly an embarrassing large amount of Just Mayo Light – it’s my favorite!

Alright, go get ready for holiday meals and gift giving while saving a buck or two! Cheers and happy savings!

There are so many “accidentally vegan” baking items on the market that are perfect for this recipe. Just grab a boxed cake mix, follow the instructions, add icing, and then decorate your ghostly graveyard cake!

Recipe: Vegan Elote-Style Roasted Corn Salad

Hello everyone,

My partner and I traveled to Mexico last year, and ever since, he has been on a roasted corn kick. He has been grilling corn on the cob all summer long and recently made a fabulous Vegan Elote-Style Roasted Corn Salad.

What is elote? It is a popular street food found throughout Mexico and parts of Central America. Generally, the corn is served boiled or grilled in the husk, but it is customarily eaten while skewered on a stick. The husk can serve as the “handle.” While it is known as a street food, it is also served in many upper scale Mexican dining establishments as an appetizer. Elote can be served smothered in everything from butter to cheese, even mayo! Traditionally, the corn is then topped with chile powder and a healthy squeeze of lime juice.

We opted to create a hybrid spread utilizing vegan butter, mayo, as well as, lots of lime juice and chile powder! This vegan elote-style roasted corn salad is so satisfying! The flavors work well together, and opting to create a corn ‘salad’ eliminates all the problems of getting corn stuck in your teeth. I think this is going to become a quick favorite in my household! Why not give it a try?

Cheers and happy eating!

Recipe: Zucchini Cream Cheese Tart

Hello everyone,

I don’t know about you, but for me, it is a summer of squash! I’ve eaten more zucchini and yellow squash the past two months than I had in two years. Contributing to my massive increase in squash consumption is the fact that I planted a plethora of zucchini in my garden, and my parents brought me some beautiful vegetables from a relative’s garden in West Virginia.

I’ve also been eyeing the “just so happens to be vegan” puff pastry from Pepperidge Farms. I put two and two together and decided to put a vegan spin on a classic cream cheese tart. Admittedly, I had no idea what I was doing with the puff pastry, and it was nothing short of a miracle that this recipe worked out. It was quick, it was easy, and if I could do it, you can, too!

There is something so comforting about a flaky crust smothered in faux cream cheese and  olive oil lightly drizzled over zucchini with herbs. Ahh. This really is a perfect recipe for your next summer get together. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

Cheers & happy eating!
