I get so bored of having the same drinks, so I try to mix things up based on what’s in season! Right now, I’m craving all the fruity, light flavors. There are only 5 simple ingredients in this blackberry bourbon smash and they’re all so fresh. This is such a refreshing cocktail for spring and the warmer months. I can see us sipping this out in the backyard now that it’s staying light out for longer and it’s finally getting hot. The blackberry is a unique take on one of my favorites. Hope you enjoy!

Vegan & Gluten Free Caesar Pasta Salad

This vegan and gluten free caesar pasta salad is the perfect healthy side dish! I can’t wait to bring this to a bbq this summer! It’s so tasty, people won’t even know that it’s vegan and gluten free. Packed with fiber, nutrients, and flavor. You can use any caesar dressing but I like to make an extra creamy, homemade version.

Vegan Queso (Nut Free)

A nut free, vegan queso! Most vegan queso recipes use cashews or almonds which are great options but for a queso lover like me, the cost adds up quickly. Plus I know there are nut free people who can’t have them at all! So this recipe is for you guys and the people like me who just like saving money (because then you can spend more at Target! haha). This recipe is also paleo and gluten free. Hope you enjoy!

Vegan Buffalo Mac & Cheese

It’s meatless Monday today and I’m sharing the most delicious, creamy vegan buffalo mac and cheese. This mac and cheese is SO creamy, you won’t even know the difference in the textures. Plus the buffalo sauce gives it a nice kick. A fun twist on a classic dinner. It’s easily made gluten free too if you follow a gluten free diet.
