Vegan eats & scrumptious treats!

Welcome to the launch of the Vegan Hogg! I’m Tracy and I love every animal on this planet but for some reason, I tend to fancy the pig; or what I like to call  The Hogg!  I know that pigs are omnivores, but I like to think otherwise.  Plus, ‘the Vegan Hogg’ just has a certain ring to it…don’t ya think? I will be adding to the site during the next couple of weeks.  I have a major sweet tooth, so you can count on a huge library that will hold all of my favorite vegan pastries, cakes & cookies!  Check back often – I plan on having running full-speed early into the New Year.  I will be adding additional categories and pages at a pretty quick pace – subscribing to my feed will ensure you don’t miss a thing! Feel free to email me with any questions/comments.  Thanks for stopping by! Tracy
