Hi, I’m Lindsay. You? Nice to meet you!
Welcome to Vegan Yumminess. Are you tired of vegan food that tastes like a strange combination of cardboard and school glue? Have no fear. You can rest assured that, while I aim to create vegan recipes that are semi-healthy, yumminess still reigns supreme here.
When I was just 5 years old, my parents adopted a plant-based diet after reading Diet for a New American by John Robbins and studying Counsels on Diet and Foods by Ellen G. White. In the 22 years that have elapsed since then, I’ve just about tried it all: the delightfully delicious (super creamy vegan mac and cheese, anyone?) and the downright disgusting (prune-sweetened carob cake). Here on Vegan Yumminess, my goal is to share with you everything I’ve learned about making vegan food taste yummy to both vegans and non-vegans alike, so you don’t have to do any guesswork.
Wanna know more about me?
I’m married to the sweetest man in the world, Jonathan, who is the tall and handsome guy in the picture above. We have
2 (now 3!) precious daughters–Big girl M, Little K, and Baby G.
I love food, cooking, photography, HGTV, friends, mommyhood, quirky light fixtures, bamboo plants, shoes, singing in the shower, and maintaining a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Hi, my husband and I have recently begun *thinking about* switching to a vegan diet for it’s health benefits. We are big food lovers, so this would be a big step for us. I look forward to trying some of your recipes. Keep them coming!

I just discovered this site through Pinterest & I am so thankful! My husband & I have just decided to become vegan. We are in the process of trying to switch out our pantry staples & stock up on vegan stuff. We figure it’s going to take a while because vegan stuff seems to be fairly pricey, so tips on how to save money will be very helpful!
I am adding you to my blog-list. :)
Thank you, Eden! Yes, I’m sad to say that many vegan items can be quite pricey. I’m always looking for ways to save, as well. I’ll be praying for you as you adapt your new vegan lifestyle. You won’t be sorry! Lindsay
Oh!! And congratulations on graduating & your new baby! :-D

I enjoy these cookies. But i have tired making them twice now. I have followed in instructions both times and both times they feel apart. What did i do wrong. I don’t believe i left any steps out or forgot any ingredients.
I’m a vegan Christian who’s also in college, so I find your blog really inspirational and awesome Lindsay. Good luck and keep up the good work!
Why thank you, Zoe! I really appreciate that!

I’m overjoyed to discover that you’re SDA. After noticing a scripture at the end of a recipe, I hopped over to your bio to confirm my suspicion. It’s fantastic that you’re using the food blog craze to share the health message. Greetings from central California!
Thanks, Jake! Greetings from the Northeast! :)
Leanne White says

Lindsay @ VeganYumminess.com says

Melissa Osuna says

Thank you so much for this ministry! My family loves everything I cook or bake from here! May God continue to bless you!
Thanks, Melissa! So glad you’re here. :)

Jaime Huff says
Hi Lindsay – I want to thank you SO much for blessing us with this website! I am also Adventist and am always looking for new ways to make vegan food tasty and enjoyable. You have amazing recipes that are delicious and easy to prepare (which is important to me because I was not blessed with the cooking gene ;) Thank you again!
Thanks for stopping by, Jaime!! Glad you’re here. :)
Hello Lindsay – I like the look of your site and the recipes are just what I have been searching for. However, I am unable to find a link to subscribe by email – can you advise me please on what I need to do? Thanks very much Catherine, France.
Thanks for stopping by, Catherine. I’m not sure why my email subscription link isn’t working. Thanks for the heads up. I will try to fix that soon, and let you know when it is up and running again. Lindsay
Rhonda Clark says
Is there a way to subscribe to this blog? Your recipes look ahmazing!
Is it possible to subscribe to this blog?
Hi Rhonda! My e-mail subscribe link broke somehow, and I haven’t gotten around to fixing it yet, but I hope to fix it shortly. I’ll let you know when it’s fixed. :)
I made this for my family and it was a huge hit. This is such a delicious recipe! I made it in two loaf pans instead of a bundt pan – no sinking and the texture was perfect.
Yay! So glad you liked it!

Is there anyway you could post your original vegan alfredo sauce recipe? It was my absolute favourite and I had it saved in my favourites but only your newer version comes up now. I loved the rich and creamy one with the full can of coconut milk. It would mean the world to me!! Or if you could just email it to me
Hi Monica! Absolutely! I attempted to streamline some of the recipes for search engine optimization purposes, but I may need to undo that, since you are not the first person who has asked for the old recipes. The first original Alfredo recipe (with the can of coconut milk is still available online). But if you are referring to the slightly adapted one, here is a link to it. https://veganyumminess.com/wprm_print/6377. Let me know if that works for you! If not, I’ll be happy to email you as well. :)

Question. In your Vegan Lemon Cake, is that really 2.5 Tablespoons of aluminum free baking powder? Why such a difference from the 2.5 teaspoons of regular baking powder. Thx.
Good question, Carol. I have had this question before, and I honestly am not sure of the reason why sometimes more aluminum-free baking powder is needed than regular baking powder. I have some readers say that only 2.5 teaspoons of aluminum-free baking powder is enough. I have always been taught that you need more baking powder when using aluminum-free, and that is how I tested this recipe and wrote it. I haven’t tried it with less baking powder yet, but if you try it, please let us know how it works for you. I would love to be corrected! And it is on my list to retest with less when I get a chance. :)
