Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato & Banana Breakfast Cake

This breakfast cake literally takes the cake. It’s sweet and cakey and full of flavor. Its grain free and gluten free. I haven’t triedContinue reading “Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato & Banana Breakfast Cake”

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”

Paleo- Friendly (Vegan) Stuffing

Thanksgiving is upon us. I get very nostalgic when it comes to holidays. Growing up i never did the same thing for Thanksgiving. Some years were spent with alot of family, some years at the Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC. But I know that every year was filled with a ton of food and cryingContinue reading “Paleo- Friendly (Vegan) Stuffing”

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”

My Favorite Banana Bread

I used to hate baking. I hated having to measure everything out and then set a timer and wait 45 minutes for everything to be done. Not only that but it can definitely create a huge mess in the kitchen. I have learned over the years to love it. I’ve learned to love spending timeContinue reading “My Favorite Banana Bread”

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Originally I was setting out to create a berry crumble. I have seen so many versions on IG and thought of creating my own. But while grocery shopping I kept noticing rhubarb in the produce section and I thought it might be fun to play around with a new ingredient, so I some how endedContinue reading “Strawberry Rhubarb Pie”

Not Your Grandmas Pancakes

I woke up the other morning and my usual breakfast go-to’s didn’t sound the best. Usually I have an omelet with some fruit and veggies or I make a smoothie. Anyone else just stick to what they know and don’t venture off the path?!?! After turning 27, I made a list of intentions that IContinue reading “Not Your Grandmas Pancakes”
