Sweet Potato Soirée
I had a Sunday Soiree to attend over the weekend, where the theme was the potato! I wanted to think a bit outside the box and whip up something special and a tad bit unique on the potato spectrum.
I love sweet potato pie, especially when it’s drenched with more than a dollop of whipped cream, so that’s the recipe I’ll share with you here.
It’s one of the easiest and quickest things to make and tastes amazing!
Ingredients are fairly few and prep takes mere minutes.
Start off with the following and add all right into a bowl together.
1 and 2/3 c (15oz) sweet potatoes
3/4 c coconut milk (180ml)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 unbaked pie crust
*I picked up a store bought crust but you can always make your own
*I have a pumpkin spice powder I substituted for the separate cloves and nutmeg as it has those plus cinnamon included in the blend.
Then, throw them in a blender until a purée has been thickly and beautifully reached. Then pour that mix into an un-cooked vegan pie crust and bake!
Bake for 40 minutes. At that point, tent the pie with toothpicks and aluminum foil to decrease chance for burning edges and bake for another 20 minutes.
I LOVE the vegan coconut whipped cream from So Delicious! Add a dollop or two or three and

The Colorful Life of a Vegan!
I am thrilled to start sharing with everyone the stellar aspects of living a vegan lifestyle! Many have reservations, wondering if they could really make the switch, if they would like it and so on. One of the biggest barriers for people is the thought there aren’t many options out there for dishes that actually taste worthwhile. I am HERE to tell you the world for vegans is FULL of colorful foods that splash into flavor like a kid doing a cannonball into the pool! There are so many things to explore in my blog and I am HAPPY to have you here. The idea is to pair my entries with my new TV segment on Arizona Daily Mix on AZTV Ch 7 at 8:30 AM. I’ll be in studio each month with a variety of stories, recipes, venues, hosting and event ideas, and talks with dynamic individuals and ideas, that will keep your eyes hungry and hopefully your mind and body FULL!
I LOVE living a vegan lifestyle and I’ll make it easy for you to do some taste-testing or cruise on over to a local venue you’ve not tried before because you didn’t know what they had to offer. I’ll act as a human GPS helping you navigate the aisles at your local grocery store to find options that are different, unique and great new additions to your cupboards and cake pans!
My idea of a good time is finding just the right ambience, just the right table by the window and just the right steaming almond milk latte. Did you know there are all sorts of dairy-free milk options, ice cream flavors and types of cheese that will have you racing to the store? And how about pastas made from squash with cauliflower cream sauce… also dairy-free!
Whether you are just curious about alternatives to meat, interested in something fresh and would like a change of pace, looking to improve your health or are in tune with moral, ethical and environmental personal reasons you are making vegetarian and vegan choices, you have come to the right place! I like having a good time, feel smiling grows a more content and giving heart and love what LIFE has going for itself! I am ready to Veg Out with #ASenseOfTaste! How about you? Let’s see what’s ahead of us!
I am an Arizona native and I LOVE all of the fun and fabulous venues this state has to offer. Living a vegan lifestyle, I am always on the search for great flavor, fabulous ambience and foods and drinks that are met with #ASenseOfTaste
