Lemons are in season! Summer seems to bring the best lemons to every corner of the United States. My 9-year-old grandson, unlike other kids his age, loves anything lemon. He, like his grandmother, is not a huge chocolate fan and prefers sweet and tart flavors.

We were celebrating his birthday and he requested a lemon cake. The recipe is entirely vegan and makes a super moist and delicious dessert. Since the frosting contains cream cheese (I used Trader Joe’s brand), I recommend storing it in the refrigerator under a covered cake stand.  However if refrigerator space is at a minimum and you don’t have a cake stand, opt for putting the leftover cake in a deep bowl and covering it with wrap.

ENJOY!

Absolutely amazing…if I may say so myself!

I am so thankful to Kite Hill for inventing Vegan Ricotta. My Italian life is so much easier and happier!

These cookies are fairly simple to make and a little cookie is just the right amount to satisfy your sweet tooth…although it is hard to eat just one!

Feel free to add more lemon zest to the recipe but I personally think this recipe has just the right amount, without being overpowering.

Enjoy!

Ask anyone that knows their beans, especially vegans, just how nutritious and delicious chickpeas are, and they are low in fat! One cup contains 269 calories and a whopping 14.5 grams of protein with only 4 grams of fat. In addition, if you are looking to increase your fiber, chickpeas contain 12.5 grams along with 80.4 mg of calcium and nearly 80 mg of magnesium.

Chickpeas contain all nine essential amino acids which make them a complete protein, necessary building blocks that keep bodies functioning properly.

And, with the spinach, this soup is one of the healthiest in my repertoire and is also fantastic when you have a cold or flu.

ENJOY!
