Gluten Free Vegan Pecan Squares

Gluten Free Vegan Pecan Squares

My husband’s typical reaction to my idea of anything vegan has been to grimace and turn his nose up.  So I decided to look for a “clean” vegan recipe for a healthy dessert which not only would kill my craving for something sweet and be nutritious but also show my husband one more area where […]

The lasagne […]
