Peanut Butter and Banana Grilled Sandwich [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on April 14, 2015, 2 comments

If you haven’t caught on, we’ve certainly had a few ups and downs in the past few months.  There are moments that I catch myself making this all way too hard.  Like.  I need to make dinner.  And dinner sounds so complicated at the moment.  The other night I said “what if we just had […]

Easy Vegan Chocolate Pudding

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on March 24, 2015, no comments

Sometimes…you just NEED chocolate pudding.  Like, rich, creamy, extra chocolate-y, chocolate pudding.   For me, the NEED arose in the middle of February.  I knew I had to remedy it with pantry staples, and since I was on a “EAT ALL OF THE TOFU” binge, I figured perhaps the tofu could come in handy. You […]

PB&J Smoothie [Vegan/Gluten Free]

Guys.  I love PB&J.  There is something incredibly nostalgic about it.  I also love the word nostalgic…and may have started this post with this just to use it.  Opps.   For real, though.  Peanut Butter. Strawberry jelly.  Bread.  Wonderful.   In the more recent years my PB&J fix has become more sophisticated – wait for […]

Have you guys missed watching Instant Pot videos?!  Uh.  I hope so!  Because I have another one for you! Today’s vlog is done in a true “let’s just pick up the camera and go” fashion.  Sometimes that makes it more fun! 🙂  Today we are looking at making refried beans in the Instant Pot.  I […]

Banana Pecan Muffins [Vegan/Gluten Free]

Oh…Hey There November. What is November like in your neck of the woods?  Here it means the weather begins to dip towards winter.  And by dip, I mean – night time feels like early Winter, and day time feels like …Winter as well.   Late Fall is my absolute favorite – mainly because of things like […]

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies [Vegan/Gluten Free]

Oh Hey. Remember last week when I said “HEY LET’S MAKE PUMPKIN SPICE CAKE WITH A BOX CAKE MIX” and you guys all said “YEAH! LET’S DO IT”.  Uhm.  Wanna play again? This time.  With Cookies.   Because [Box Cake Mix] + Spices+ Pumpkin + Chocolate Chips = the greatest idea ever.  Or.  Close to ever. […]

Pumpkin Spice Cake [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on October 21, 2014, one comment

I keep thinking I’ll do some random posts in a row for a “series” or a “theme”.  Like…”Soup for February” or…something.  But I have realized that means that I have to eat a lot of the same kind of thing for a long time in a row.  (But.  Yeah.  Soup.  I could totally do that).  This […]

Cinnamon Cake – King Arthur GF Box Cake Made Vegan < Yes Yes Yes.

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on September 30, 2014, 2 comments

This Summer we were invited to a pot luck and asked to bring “A Dessert”.  This terrified me.  I wanted to bring something that I could eat (dairy free / gluten free) – but that everyone else would like as well.   I was also majorly short on time.  I was walking through the grocery […]

Homemade [Vegan] Yogurt Cheese

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on September 23, 2014, 5 comments

Yogurt Cheese is pretty awesome.  But, if you’ve been reading my blog..uh..at all.. you know that I love anything to do with yogurt.  And cheese.   Yogurt cheese isn’t really cheese at all.  It’s actually just yogurt that’s been strained to the point that it’s a thick, soft cheese consistency.  I would compare the consistency […]

Pecan Parmesan Crumbles [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on September 2, 2014, no comments

This recipe is so simple, it’s almost not even a recipe. But, you see, it is a recipe.  Or, perhaps, a recipe enhancer.  Vegan parmesan can be bought at the store – for a lot of money, and little flavor.  I’ve toyed with a way to make it from nuts and nutritional yeast for a […]
