 the origin story 

Hi, I'm Destinee.

Born and Raised Austinite.

Baking Addict. Pastry Chef.

I have been in the kitchen since before I can remember; it is like I would gravitate toward it.

So naturally, I attended pastry school in 2013, and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made!

I learned so much and loved getting paid to bake and work in kitchens full time.

But after I went vegan in 2016, I noticed that there were hardly any vegan desserts available in my area. I searched high and low for a decent vegan cupcake or cookie and was unsatisfied with the majority of what I tried.

That is when I decided to make and share my own desserts. I do this in the form of recipes on my blog, and here, straight from my kitchen. 

wait, this is vegan?

I started creating these recipes when I was a new vegan, so I still remembered what non-vegan desserts tasted like. I worked hard to make sure my desserts didn't taste "vegan" or feel like they were lacking anything. 

It took almost 2 years, but I have finally created a handful of crowd-pleasing, foolproof, delicious, vegan dessert recipes. 


My friends and family call my desserts "The Vegan Gateway Drug". Because when people who are not vegan eat them, then find out it is 100% vegan, they become more open-minded & realize that the vegan diet isn't as boring or restrictive as most people think.

You don't need to use eggs or dairy to create delicious cookies or cakes, and if you have an allergy, you won't have to sacrifice flavor or miss out on the most important meal of the day. 

(Which is dessert if you were wondering. <3)
