Vegan Homemade Dog Treats!

Recipe from: My Sweet Vegan by Hannah Kaminsky - Page 84

I made this recently for my dogs and they loved them (at least I think they did because they devoured them so quickly). 

I made a double batch and put the batter in a mini muffin pan, so that they would be a good size for dogs of all sizes and last a couple of days. These treats were quick and easy to make, vegan, and homemade!

The ingredients are so healthy that even humans can eat these treats!

Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste With Baking Soda

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

This is a great toothpaste! The ingredients are wonderful and it really works. I love that this toothpaste doesn't contain xylitol - many other toothpastes do, but I prefer ones without it . It cleans my teeth really well and leaves my mouth feeling fresh. I have the mint flavor, but Desert Essence also sells Wintergreen, Fennel & Ginger. This toothpaste isn't very minty and, even though I like it, I would have preferred it to be more minty. I love the new design - the flip cap is really nice! The toothpaste is also 100% vegan!

Ingredients (from

Calcium Carbonate, Glycerin (Vegetable Derived), Water (Aqua), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Distillate, Sodium Coco-Sulfate, Carrageenan (Plant Derived), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Sodium Bicarbonate, Eco-Harvest Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Sea Salt. 100% Vegan.

Dr. Tung's Stainless Steel Tongue Cleaner


I really like this tongue cleaner, it's by far the best that I have tried. It's really good at getting the tongue clean of unwanted matter. I think the quality of this is great and will last for years. The rubber-like handles are really nice as well. This is a great tongue cleaner.

Happy Mother's Day

This is the cake I made for my mom for Mother's Day this year. I think it turned out good, considering I'm a novice in decorating cakes. 


For the cake, I used the 'Chocolate Cake' recipe (page 72) from 'The Joy Of Vegan Baking'. 
I frosted the cake with 'Chocolate Fudgey Frosting' (page 259) from 'La Dolce Vegan!' & used 'Butter Cream Frosting' (page 261) from ' La Dolce Vegan!' for in-between the layers and for decorating. 

I like how it tastes - sweet, but not too sweet.  I think it's especially delicious with a glass of Silk Soymilk. 

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!!!

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream....Update

Recipe from - The Vegan Scoop

This is my absolute favorite ice cream! I have made double & triple batches. As I've said before, I find that this ice cream tastes way better if you minimize the peppermint extract to 1/2 tablespoon (otherwise it is way too minty). The picture on the left is from when I added chocolate chips that I chopped in a food processor. It turned out great, but it's really hard to tell which way I like this ice cream better (with whole chocolate chips or with chopped chocolate chips). This way there are chocolate pieces in every bite, but with whole chips it's a lot more refreshing and smooth. Either way, I really love this ice's delicious!!!
