Every year around
the holiday season, I begin to panic.
Not from the fear of ghosts and goblins, but from the fear that I will
have to sit through another Halloween party or event with limited food choices.
And, apparently, there are only so many apples that you’re allowed to bob for
before someone starts complaining. I often find myself shifting back and forth
around various rooms hunting for something, anything cruelty-free that I can
snack on. For many, the answer is simple: candy, chocolate, or other party
For vegans, like me, the choices aren’t so easy.
I constantly find
myself checking the labels for everything from hidden milk and egg ingredients
to monosodium glutamate and animal fat. And if there’s not a label, then I hope
that you’re prepared to list your ingredients like an elevator pitch while your
guests dance in the distance. Now, when I’m in these situations, I feel that I
only have two choices: on one hand, I have the quick option of running to Imagine Vegan Café or Muddy’s for a quick dessert fix; while,
on the other hand, I realize that I should’ve been better prepared and brought
my own snack-age to share with everyone. So, after my advanced search through
Pinterest and Google, I’ve found a few last minute recipes to satisfy every
vegan and non-vegan party goer.
