When she first started following a plant-based diet, she found vegan recipes complicated and involving highly processed ingredients she had never heard of. So she set out to create and share her own recipes for family-favorite comfort foods using easy-to-find ingredients and pantry staples, as well as simple, straightforward cooking techniques for no-fuss vegan and gluten-free recipes anyone can make and everyone will enjoy.
