Simple Savory Vegan Crock Pot Chili Recipe

So the temperature has started to drop here in NY and this vegan crock pot chili recipe is just the thing for cool fall evening dinners.

Savvy’s Blueberry Overnight Oatmeal

It took me awhile for me to get into this trend, because I was confused as to why anyone would want to eat cold oatmeal. But after some trial and error, and a comment on my Vegan Chocolate Breakfast Pudding, I am now one of the converted. This stuff is not just for breakfast either.

It’s still delish.  Continue reading
