Vegan Pop Up Dallas No. 1 | Dinner + Floral Workshop

Finally, I’m sharing the highlights from this Dallas vegan pop up event that I went to back in November! My apologies for posting this so late–grad school has been my only priority these past few months. My finals ended last week and I still don’t feel caught up on rest yet. But enough about my life as a design student–let’s talk about this amazing event!

Harry Potter Butterbeer Macaroons // The Plant Philosophy Collab

ICYMI, Margaret (The Plant Philosophy) and I have been getting magical in the kitchen with some Harry Potter themed treats, including Polyjuice Potion and Felix Felicis Potion!

 

Last week when Margaret and I got together to collaborate on more Harry Potter recipes, we had some issues with our initial recipe ideas. Plus there was a torrential downpour most of the day, so we struggled to get good lighting for our photos. Maybe we would’ve had better luck with a sip of Felix Felicis. 😉

Harry Potter Felix Felicis Potion // The Plant Philosophy Collab

To say that I love Harry Potter would be an understatement. I grew up reading the series and it will always hold a special place in my heart…the stories and the characters will stay with me, until the very end. *sobs* I love it so much.

Naturally, when Margaret (The Plant Philosophy) and I decided to meet and hang out this month, I immediately suggested a Harry Potter recipe collab, in the spirit of Halloween! We decided to put our own spin on a couple of potions from the books: Polyjuice (on Margaret’s blog) and Felix Felicis (below). It was too much fun!


If you’re behind in potions class, don’t worry, I’ll catch you up to speed. Felix Felicis, also known as liquid luck, is a golden concoction that enables the drinker to be successful in everything they pursue.


“Then, slowly but surely, an exhilarating sense of infinite opportunity stole through [Harry]; he felt as though he could have done anything, anything at all…” – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince


Now, this Felix Felicis juice recipe won’t guarantee you magical luck, but it will certainly make you feel refreshed and ready to take on whatever challenges lie ahead in your day. The flavor starts off fresh with bright citrus notes, ending with an invigorating kick of ginger.

In the series, Felix Felicis is a difficult potion to brew, taking at least six months. Thankfully for us, this recipe takes almost no time at all to whip up. If you’re making it for a Halloween party, feel free to multiply the recipe to your needs.

4 Ingredient Chai Latte Ice Cream (Nice Cream)

It’s almost the end of October and I’m frustrated because fall still hasn’t really hit Texas yet. It’s not hot anymore, but today was humid and muggy. I ran outside this morning and was feeling all kinds of nope.

It seems like we only get a total of ten days of pleasantly crisp fall weather, before we are plunged unceremoniously into the despairs of winter. But let’s not dwell on that inevitable doom and try to make the best of things…

Kimchi ‘Bella Burgers

This post has been at least a year in the making. Last summer, I made some Asian-inspired portobella mushroom burgers for a friend and he told me they were the best burgers he’d ever tasted! I’ve since then made the recipe several times, tweaking things and adding different toppings.

This year, I’m participating in #VeganMofo for the first time! I’m mostly posting quick micro-blogs on Instagram, because grad school is my #1 priority at the moment. My life since last week: studying + studio all day every day (with breaks for food *photography* + quick runs to the gym). However, Vegan Mofo’s theme for Day 5, “best sandwich ever,” prompted me to create an entire blog post dedicated to this beautiful burger. 🙂

Burgers are sandwiches, right? 😉 I stepped up my game this time with double the ‘bellas, a creamy avocado basil sauce, and delectable caramelized kimchi (inspired by this dish made by ELY of Buzzfeed). This may be the best reincarnation of this burger yet!  Continue reading
