Blueberry Banana Pancake Bread

Banana bread has taken over the internet in 2020. While I love making banana bread it is very time consuming. Often when I bake banana bread it can take almost 2 hours between the prep and bake time. I used to make banana bread weekly because it made me and my fiancé’s mornings so muchContinue reading “Blueberry Banana Pancake Bread”

Healthy Golden Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are my absolute favorite holiday cookie. These ones are my spin on the sugar cookie. They are not your typical soft and chewy cookie. These have a little crunchier bite but will melt in your mouth. They are PERFECT for decorating. For this recipe I used coconut sugar instead of regular sugar.  WeContinue reading “Healthy Golden Sugar Cookies”

Chocolate Chunky Cookies

These cookies are my absolute favorite. I made them last year for the first time around Christmas and I am finally adding them to the blog. These chunky cookies are so chewy and moist. They are dairy free, gluten free and grain free.  I love them for the holidays but honestly, they should be enjoyedContinue reading “Chocolate Chunky Cookies”

Gingerbread Loaf

Over this past weekend I got really excited about creating.  Getting creative sounds a lot easier than it is. Some days ideas are just flowing, others you need to go out in search of inspiration. I had intended to make a gingerbread loaf but it took me some thinking. I really wanted to get creativeContinue reading “Gingerbread Loaf”

Cranberry Orange Bread

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I love Thanksgiving. It is such a great time to spend with your loved ones (celebrating with good food). I mean it really is all about the food, right?!?!? I used to never look forward to eating on holidays. Growing up as a vegetarian there wasn’t much for meContinue reading “Cranberry Orange Bread”

Chopped Veggie Salad with Spicy Caesar Dressing

I probably eat a salad for lunch 6/7 days of the week. Not only are they so quick to make, but they are packed with benefits and don’t cost alot. You can buy almost all of the ingredients to make six salads for the cost of one from your local cafe. And you can easilyContinue reading “Chopped Veggie Salad with Spicy Caesar Dressing”

Triple Layer Snickerdoodle Raw Bars

This is the perfect time of year for the farmers market if you live in the southwest. When the temperature finally cools off, it is much more enjoyable to shop outdoors. I don’t usually hit up the bakery vendors but last weekend I did. I had this amazing snickerdoodle cookie that was vegan and soContinue reading “Triple Layer Snickerdoodle Raw Bars”

Fall Salad with White Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

We all know the beloved cranberry and candied walnut salad. I myself crave this salad at least once a week in the fall. Back in my hometown in Boston, I used to get a similar version of this salad at our local restaurant, where we would go out to watch football on Sundays. It wasContinue reading “Fall Salad with White Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing”

Vegan Pumpkin Chili Cashew Queso

It is officially OCTOBER! I am definitely in a fall mood today. My home is filled with pumpkins and we’ve been serving up all of the squash and pumpkin meals around here. This meal was supposed to be a pumpkin chili pasta (which I may do soon). But somehow, this turned into a queso dip.Continue reading “Vegan Pumpkin Chili Cashew Queso”

Pumpkin Spice Banana Nut Bread

Its OFFICIALLY FALL! And it’s finally feeling cooler, at least in the mornings. Which is satisfying enough for my autumn solstice loving soul. I have been cooking up so many fall and pumpkin inspired meals the past few weeks. Living in a hot climate, you really need to find ways to get in “the mood”.Continue reading “Pumpkin Spice Banana Nut Bread”
