Vegan Recipes Made With Your Favorite Kitchen Gadgets
With a late November anniversary, an early December birthday, and Christmas just a few weeks behind, Irving often takes advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, and gifts me the latest and greatest kitchen appliances. While I know that appliances don’t seem like the most romantic gift in the world, this girl loves them, and my sweet husband knows it! In the 14 some years that we’ve been together he’s given me a food processor for Christmas, a blender for Mother’s Day, an Instant Pot for a birthday, an Air Fryer for another birthday, a dehydrator for another Christmas, and countless little gadgets in between! Let’s just say that I have a well stocked kitchen. Are you looking for some new kitchen gadgets for the people on your shopping list this year? How about some yummy vegan recipes to go along? Here are a few of my favorite recipes and kitchen gadgets to go with them!

Oh….and mashed potatoes!!! Once you get over the (semi irrational) fear of it exploding it will become your favorite appliance! Get one NOW!

My Air Fryer is the newest appliance in my collection! It cooks foods at a high temperature in a basket so that the air can cook from all sides, allowing it to stay crispy!
