Welcome to Dandy Apples! My name is Arielle and I have a sweet tooth.
However, I also try to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. When I realized that vegan, low-sugar desserts taste just as good as (if not better than) their junk-food counterparts, I never went back! (OK, sometimes I sneak those “other” desserts in, but not too often!) Since healthier desserts are harder to come by, and I’d probably go broke anyway if I bought them as often as I’d like, I decided to start making them myself. Then this blog was born. 🙂
Although I am not completely vegan, all of the recipes I post are. I mainly post dessert, breakfast and snack recipes that are on the “sweet” side, but every so often I’ll post a savoury snack recipe. I’ll also occasionally write food-related posts that don’t have a recipe (such as reviews for food products.)
For my “day job” I perform genomics research as a Biophysics graduate student. I’m thinking about starting a science blog in the future, probably focusing on genomics, genetics and quantitative biology research. If any of you would be interested in reading such a blog, please let me know!
