This was the first time I’ve ever cooked with tempeh and to be honest, I was super nervous that it was going to gross. But I was totally wrong! I made a variation of an amazing vegan sloppy joe recipe I found on Vegan Dad! For those of you that may not be familiar, tempeh, like tofu, is made from soybeans. However, unlike tofu, the soybeans remain whole and undergo a fermentation process,...

Last night I made the most incredible blue cheese burgers on the grill, but of course, forgot to take a picture of them!!! 🙁 Let me start off saying that I am usually not the biggest fan of blue cheese, I only like it in SMALL amounts. However, I thought I would give these a try and they were to die for! That being said, I will most likely make them again before the summer is over and...

Kabobs are so easy, you can put just about anything you have available in your kitchen on a kabob stick! Last...
