Vegan Doggie Birthday Cake

Today's post is for our four-legged friends. We have 2 dogs named Jolene and Townes, and both of them are Vegans.  Jolene is almost 5 years old and Townes is celebrating his 1st birthday this week.  Jolene has been Vegan for about 3 years and Townes has been since he was 3 months old.  They are very healthy and happy and full of energy.

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Vegan Sausage Patties

I used to really enjoy the Morningstar Sausage Patties in my Vegetarian days, but since they are not Vegan friendly I decided to try my hand at making my own.  I know there are other brands that are Vegan, but I just prefer to make my own.  This list of ingredients looks long, but keep in mind that most of it is spices and you can omit a couple if you do not have them.  The fennel is a must, as is the Cayenne and Black Pepper, but the rest is just the combination I came up with...

  In honor of the approaching Mardi Gras season, I decided I needed to veganize the traditional King Cake.  I see them all around me this time of year.  Every grocery store has them, and without fail someone always brings one to a party.  For myself and my fellow Vegans, it sucks that we can not take part in this tradition. So I took it upon myself to study up on how to make a King Cake and veganize the recipe.  For anyone not familiar...
