Hello There and Welcome!
Hi Everyone! I am so happy you are here! My name is Chelsea, and my nickname is Peachtree due to it rhyming with my last name. Most people don’t even realized it is not my last name, including half my friends and my old professors.
About the blog!
I am a recipe developer, food photographer and content creator. My goal is to provide you with simple, straight forward vegan recipes that have normal ingredients you can read. I will (almost) never post a recipe with crazy ingredients you have to hunt down at the food specialty store, nor will I make a recipe with an ingredients list the size of the Gettysburg address.
Here, you will find a mix of “junk food” vegan recipes and healthier plant based recipes, as well as fun cocktails!
I stopped eating meat when I was 5 years old after visiting a farm during a school field trip. I never knew my animal friends were actually the food on plate! I am the only vegger in my family, and therefore, I have always cooked for myself. In February 2020, I began to eliminate dairy from my diet and explore the vegan lifestyle. I slowly learned that vegan baked goods and meals are easy to make and taste just as good! Eliminating dairy was scary for me because I always thought vegan recipes had to have a crazy list of exotic ingredients. This prompted me to make my blog; to show individuals that you can make plant based and vegan meals with normal ingredients!
A little more about me…
I live in a one bedroom condo in downtown Stamford, CT (45 minutes from NYC) with my fiance, Gabe, our long-haired tuxedo cat, Louis (King Louis), and our shepherd mix, Liberty Bear. They all make frequent cameos on my instagram, even though they all hate the camera. I also have a family dog that lives an hour from me, Callie Bear, who loves the camera and attention.
I am an attorney and have worked in family law, personal injury and insurance defense. I studied law in CT and also in Dublin, Ireland. My passion is cooking, and I still wonder why I did not go to culinary school instead of law school, but here we are!
