    Vegan Nacho Cheese, or as Eric Likes to Call it: Dorito Dip

    What do you call a nosy pepper? Jalapeno business! That joke literally makes me laugh every time. Anyhoo, I’ve recently dipped back into veganism, after getting some serious vegan eats in Texas two weeks ago, and one of the hardest things about veganism is the lack of cheese. Or at least it used to be! I became vegetarian 24 years ago, and back then the only vegan cheese available, was awful. Cardboard awful. Cardboard mixed with paste awful. Things have definitely changed though, I was floored when I tried Chao Creamy Original last week, it legit tasted like sliced mozzarella. I’ll admit, my favorite nacho cheese, is Tostito’s Salsa Con…

I blame it all on Adam Driver.  The Lead Brownie Why did I go to bed so late, you ask? Well, I intended to go to sleep at my usual time, maybe a little later. I had a midnight deadline for work that I had to rush to meet because I procrastinated, searching for vegan brownie recipes. Don’t fret y’all, I found one that was phenomenal.

    Vegan Eats in Texas (+Bonus Rant – I Swear, if You Say Protein One More Time…!)

    All my exes live in Texas! Well, not really any of them…that I know of. Also, last week was my first time in Texas! My coworker joked that I wouldn’t be able to find anything vegetarian there, and he was waaaaaay off. Then I got reprimanded by a Facebook friend for saying that I surprisingly found vegan eats in Texas. I can’t win, y’all. Yeah, I say y’all now too. I travel often for work, close to once a month, and I try to do something different or exciting on each trip. I’ve been to the Indie 500 track, to the top of the Space Needle and Mt. Rainier in…
