Recipe: Indulgent Macaroni Salad

Hello everyone,img_4255

The air is crisp, the leaves are getting crunchy, but for some reason, the weather hasn’t quite turned to fall just yet.

I recently needed to make an appetizer for a weekend potluck. During the fall, I love to make winter squash salad and more ‘hearty’ foods. I took this opportunity to make one last “feel good” summer flavored appetizer. I made  my indulgent vegan macaroni salad. Check out this quick and easy (under 30 minutes!) recipe below!

Hello everyone!PiggyBankSavings

Happy fall!

This is my absolute favorite season – from the clothes to the weather to the food – it’s simply the best. I love going to the farmers market and buying way too many root vegetables and squash to roast. Plus, how can you go wrong with pumpkin flavored everything?!

I spent this weekend doing yard work, running errands, and scouring the internet and rebate apps to find the best deals so you don’t have to. Check out my latest coupon round up below.

Old Fashioned Vegan Coleslaw

Hello friends!IMG_3671

What’s more American than some good old fashioned cole slaw? Well…maybe apple pie, but I’d say this traditional side dish makes the top ten list. Being vegan, cole slaw is something I don’t eat very often. However, it’s a side dish that I used to love as a kid. Since Hampton Creek has such an amazing line of faux mayos, I decided to give this old fashioned dish a vegan spin.

The recipe is simple, using just seven main ingredients and taking about 10 minutes of prep time. Why not give this a try? It’s sure to satisfy vegans and non-vegans alike!

Let me know what you think!
