Jamaican "Beef" Patties

Jamaican "Beef" Patties by Kiki Thompson

Coming from a Jamaican background, many times my palate craves the blended flavors of curry. So I veganized one of my favorite treats, Jamaican Beef Patties. These are kind of similar to Mexican empinadas, but spicy I was kind of skeptical at first, but you can not tell the difference…it’s all about the seasoning when it comes down…

Mexican Beans

Mexican Beans by Spicie Foodie

Frijoles,Beans are an essential part of Mexican food, I remember when I was growing up my Mom always had a pot on the stove or ready made in the refrigerator for our weekly meals.

Cinnamon Swirl Cheesecake

Cinnamon Swirl Cheesecake by Kiki Thompson

I had tested many vegan cheesecakes and came really close to the dairy form, but this is it! The flavoring and everything is just perfect! It's decadent. It's probably not the best option when it comes to staying healthy, but it's nice to know that I have an option when I get those cravings for cheesecake :)
