Almond & Cinnamon Creamer

Creamer is one of those things you'll always find on my fridge. About 8 months ago I made the switch from milk based creamer to nut based creamer, be it coconut, almond, or soy. Not only does it have less calories and sugar but it's easier on my stomach and doesn't...

On The Table: Vegan Chocolate Glazed Donuts

Still in a coma from Thanksgiving? Me too. But I can make an exception for these chocolate glazed donuts. Since AJ is vegan, we went dairy-free with these because no matter HOW ambitious I am feeling there is no way I'm putting away a half dozen donuts on my own. The...
