Vegan Ranch Dressing Recipe! Quick and Easy!

As promised, I said that I would share my homemade Vegan ranch recipe with you guys. I mentioned this in my last post where I made the Sweet N Spicy Cauliflower Bites. (You can find that recipe HERE). If you know me, then you know that I absolutely LIVE for dips and sauces. I am totally that person that drowns her food in dressings, and dips my chips way too deep in any dipping sauce. You do NOT wanna share chips and dip with me I promise! Just ask my husband or sisters. I just prefer my food a bit…wet. ;p  Anyway, because I love dips and dressings, lately I have been making my own, and wanted to share the vegan ranch recipe that I found that only requires 3 main ingredients. Just 3! Continue reading “Vegan Ranch Dressing Recipe! Quick and Easy!”

Sweet and Spicy Cauliflower Bites! Vegan and Good AF!

Hey Fabbies! It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some of my favorite vegan recipes on this blog. I do A LOT of cooking these days, and share my cooking pretty often on my Snapchat and Insta-story.

Detox Mondays! Are You In?

Happy Sunday Fabbies! Of course you guys know that I love fashion and all things girly, but recently I have been deep-diving in research on nutrition and health. As a vegan, I am no doubt the healthiest I have ever been, but I still have days where I feel sluggish or more tired than normal, get the occasional pimple or breakout on my face, and I KNOW it is due to what I have been eating. Yes I have a plant-based diet, but let’s face it: Some days, even for ME, I don’t get enough fruits and vegetables. What am I eating instead you ask? Let’s see: chips, vegan hot dogs, vegan cheese dip, pasta, and whatever else “quick” little snack that I can get my hands on.  Of course, these are not nearly as bad as eating “real meat and cheese”, but it is equally important to CONSISTENTLY eat a healthy serving and fruits and vegetables EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

My Exclusive Interview with Eva Cannon: She Changed Her Diet, then She Changed Her Life!

For this blog post, I decided to do something a bit different than I have ever done before. I decided to wear the hat of radio slash television host, if you will, and interview a friend of mine, Eva Cannon, 23, who switched her diet to a predominantly plant-based lifestyle over a year ago. Cannon is a professional chef that I met while I was living in Los Angeles. At the time, Eva was one of the chefs for the Los Angeles Clippers (and at the time, Chris was playing for them), and she also prepared vegan meals for us at our home a few times! She also used to make these “cake-in-a-jar” deliciousness that I used to be OBSESSED WITH!

Vegan Rotel Cheese Dip Recipe

Happy Friday Fabbies! Recently in my household, we have begun a tradition where every Friday evening we have movie night as a family at home. This means, we move a spare mattress in our TV room so the kids can lay down/roll around/watch the movie on it. We usually either rent a movie from On-Demand, or watch an already saved movie from our DVR. (Don’t get me started on how they request to watch The Peanuts movie every Friday, but that’s a whole ‘nother story!) They bring their pillows and blankets, they get their trays to put their snacks on, they put on their favorite pajamas, I cook their favorite cheese dip, and let me tell you honey, IT IS A THING!” It’s a big deal in the Douglas-Roberts household. Huge. Big. Monumental even. Zé and Vito look forward to it every single week. Well, really, Chris and I low-key look forward to it too, because ALL of us are kind of obsessed with rotel cheese dip. And we all know that every Friday, Mommy’s making rotel dip, and if you had it, you would know why we are obsessed!
