Last week I made an attempt to roast my first batch of potatoes. Weird that this was my first go at it, considering I love all things potato-y… I guess I usually sauté them. I found this recipe here and thought the baggy idea was perfect and easy enough. 40-50 mins in the oven, and
Vegan products get a lot of flack; “ew, vegan that must be gross.” But I want to make it loud and clear, vegan desserts can and are fantastic. Aside from frozen yogurt, if you were never told it was vegan, I don’t think you could ever tell the difference. I became dairy and meat free
