Recipe: Delicious Vegan Stuffed Peppers

I love these and make them often!

Crockpot Vegan Stuffed Peppers


4 large green bell peppers (remove tops, seeds, and cores)
1 15 oz can of black beans (divided)
1 cup salsa
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 handful of your favorite shredded vegan "cheese"
1/2 cup of your favorite vegan "sour cream"

Step 1: Sautee the onion in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the chili powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes,and oregano.

Step 2: Remove onion mixture from heat.

Step 3: Mash half of the black beans in a bowl, and add onion mixture. Stir in remaining half of the black beans, but do NOT mash.

Step 4: Place bell peppers into the crockpot. Spoon your black bean mixture into each pepper. Top with salsa and cheese.

Step 5: Cook on low for 5-8 hours, or on high for 2-4 hours.

Step 6: Top each pepper with sour cream and enjoy!

TIP: I often have extra black bean mixture left after stuffing the peppers, so I turn it into a dip and serve it with tortilla chips!

Cash Crate-The Best Online Survey Site EVER!

I'm definitely a fan!

I've already made $28.65 this month, and I spend about 15 mins a day on there, if that. Not bad, eh?

The reason I love Cash Crate so much is because you are GUARANTEED at least 2 .80 surveys a day! That's $48 a month if you choose to do the daily surveys! Plus there are paid offers you can complete, or you can shop online at trusted sites like and earn a percentage of your purchase back!

They pay monthly, so you know you'll get your check fast (I've done work for some survey companies that took MONTHS to pay me, which sucked)!

My First Post :)

Hi everybody :)

I started this blog with the hopes that it would help single moms like myself.

I currently work 2 jobs, and I'm EXHAUSTED.

I used to do a lot of stuff to make money from home online, and I just started getting back into it again.
Thanks to my online income, I will be quitting my part-time job at the end of December (but keeping my full-time job).

This blog will have tips on how to make money from home, discussions on what methods I like best, and general ideas on how to get through life as a single mom.
It will also have updates on the cool new things my daughter is doing, as well as posts about things I just think are cool ( makeup, hair, clothes, etc.).

Expect more posts soon! :)
