21 Healthy Plant Based Dinners Ready in 45 Minutes or Less

Long time, no see, my friends! How is everyone doing? Lately, I’ve been in a bit of a food funk. I’m feeling very “meh” about food and cooking. And recipe creation? It’s not happening. I can’t really explain it, other than the events around the world and here in the states have been weighing heavily…

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

It has been the summer of homemade ice cream around here and on the blog, and I think I may have saved the best for last. That’s assuming this is the last ice cream recipe I share this summer. I was pretty sure it was going to be until I typed that just now. Alright,…

Buckwheat Crispy Treats

I can feel it in the air, and I can see it in the Target commercials… back to school time is just around the corner. With my kiddo starting nursery school this year, it’s all becoming very real. Backpacks and school clothes, folders and pencil cases, lunch boxes and after school snacks. While I don’t…

DIY Luxurious Lather Face Wash with Aloe

I’m so excited to share this DIY face wash recipe with you all today.  It’s simple, made with natural ingredients, inexpensive, and most importantly, it keeps my skin fresh, clean, clear, and smooth.

Vegan French Vanilla Ice Cream

Two ice cream recipes in a row, folks… I can’t even hide my obsession. Normally, I would try to stagger ice cream recipes in between some healthy smoothies, or maybe even a veggie-filled salad or savory dish, but by golly I can’t help it. I’m excited! Guys, it’s VEGAN FRENCH VANILLAAA!!!!! It’s a classic. And…

Vegan Black Cherry Ice Cream

Yesterday was my dad’s birthday, and this year I thought it’d be fun to re-create one of his favorite ice cream flavors. Growing up, I used to love visiting the near-by ice cream stand, or whippy dip as it we called it. Like most establishments of its kind, it was only open from late spring…

Strawberry Rooibos Iced Tea

I sometimes daydream about creating a recipe blog that is exclusively beverages. It seems like I come up with more thirst-quenching recipe ideas than anything else. Everything from thick, nourishing smoothies and dessert-like shakes to warm and cozy sips and cold, icy, refreshments… like today’s recipe, which is perfect for a hot summer day. I’ve…

Ultimate Vegan and Gluten Free Cauliflower Wing Sampler Platter

A few weeks ago I was craving spicy, saucy, cauliflower “wings.” I decided to change things up from my usual recipe, and try out some ideas I had for alternate sauces. What I ended up with was this party platter of cauliflower deliciousness with a variety of tasty sauces to put a smile on everyone’s…

Coffee and Coconut Milk Popsicles

Our weather forecast starting this weekend into next week is looking a bit… subtropical. Temps in the 90s, high humidity, thunderstorms. I can feel my brow starting to perspire just thinking about it. Not to worry though, because I have the antidote. My plan for surviving our first big heat wave of the summer? Stacks…

Raspberry Rhubarb Coconut Crumble Bars

I told you in my last post I had something special up my sleeve for that raspberry rhubarb jam… Introducing the tastiest, jammiest, most crumble-topping-est (I know, just go with it), sweet dessert bar, ever. It’s the best tasting bar I’ve ever made. Possibly the best dessert bar I’ve tasted, ever. And it should be,…

Raspberry Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam

This tangy sweet jam is a prelude to a delicious dessert recipe I just can’t wait to share. While these homemade preserves make for the perfect sweet ingredient in a special treat, this easy homemade jam also happens to be the topping your toast has been waiting for (and your pancakes, waffles, and french toast,…
