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…

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 :)

The thing I LOVE about this recipe is that it’s quick, easy & Italian It’s one of those dishes that you can whip right up when you’re really not feeling the jive to make a feast after a long day of work (that’s what I did).

These are awesome served with heavenly hot dip, a plate of spinich and…
