Cinnamon rolls, and any yeast based recipes, have always been very intimidating for me. I don’t have a cooking thermometer and am always certain that I will kill the yeast and be stuck with hard, flat cinnamon rolls. A few months ago I decided to overcome my fear and began scouring the internet for different recipes. I read all sorts of recipes and tips/tricks AND made about 4 dozen cinnamon rolls before I had a recipe that I liked AND was easy to make. The result was these delicious One Bowl Vegan Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Almond Icing.
Back in February I had the honor to help host one of my good friend’s baby shower. I was in charge of food which was perfect as she is vegan too. It turned out great and was so much fun! One of the treats I made were Vegan Rice Crispy Treat Baby Rattles. This version gives a slight fruity twist to the classic recipe and is super easy to make. To give you an idea of how easy, after I trialed the recipe once, my boyfriend made and assembled all of the rattles with minimal assistance from me.
