It is a quick and simple reciepe that tastes great! I used chocolate graham crackers as the base for mine since I am a choco-fiend. They taste great and are husband approved!
Keep an eye on this amazing woman, I know I will be trying out more of her amazing recipes!

The beautiful photo to the left is from the woman who came up with the recipe and she has her own cooking blog. It is a 2 layered pumpkin cheesecake and it is amazing!
I have tried many of her recipes and I urge everyone to give them a try because I have yet to come across one that did not taste absolutely amazing! I could not find the photo of my attempt at this cheesecake but when I find it I will post it.
I have since made alterations to the base recipe and made a husband pleasing lemon cheesecake. It is his absolute favorite but for me I am madly in love with the 2 layered pumpkin cheesecake.
So please try out the recipe from her site and trust me, no one will know it's vegan!

I know it sounds a bit cheesy but it's true. I can tell people how good vegan baking can be but they will not believe me, but if I show them instead they are sold!
So with that in mind, I try to ensure my presentation is as good as the taste. It could be the most amazing cookie/muffin/cake/cupcake/etc but if it looks bad people are less likely to give vegan baking a chance. The truth is, vegan bakers need to go a little bit further to entice people to try their food.

I wanted to start this blog to not only share my vegan baking experiences but to show people that being vegan doesn't mean you can't have AMAZING sweets and tasty treats! In fact anyone who tries my baking never believes it is vegan and always asks for more.
I am going to be posting pictures of my baking, recipes and reviews of baking books for everyone to enjoy:)
So to start things off, here is my most recent baking endeavour! It's a fruit shortbread tart with vegan whipped topping. my husband was so excited when he got home and he found out I had been baking. Needless to say they are all gone and he is a happy man LOL!
I will be post again soon with some of my past items and some recipes!
