Ask A Vegan Chef

 While scrolling through Instagram, I'm always in awe of the beautifully plated, drool-worthy vegan dishes people showcase.  And one particular account included in my admiration is Insatiable Vegan.  Just take a look at this: Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sammie  (kale, pesto, spinach, Riverdel cheese, avocado and fakin) Or this... Salted Chocolate Avocado Pudding (almond caramel, coconut whipped cream) I had the pleasure to interview Breck Oxford,  founder of Insatiable Vegan and discussed where she finds inspiration for her culinary creations, advice for any new vegans or vegan-curious folks out there, some of her favorite foods to work with and more!  Breck...

Vegan Beauty Must-Haves for Summer

With summer in full swing and AC on full blast, the June 2016 Vegan Cuts beauty box arrived just in time to celebrate the summer solstice! The June 2016 Vegan Cuts beauty box looking all cheery on the first day of summer!  Ofra Cosmetics Lip Gloss in "Laguna Beach" ($19.90 Value) It was love at first sight.  I'm such a sucker for mauvey-pink lip colors...you can imagine how varied my lip stash is.  Besides being named after a guilty pleasure from early 2000's and one of the first California coastlines I fell in love with, this color "Laguna Beach" is a...
