Paleo Pumpkin Spice Pancakes {For One}

DSC_3638(small)2

I can’t imagine a holiday dinner without turkey and all the trimmings. Not just for Thanksgiving; we don’t eat pork (so ham is out of the question), and Christmas calls for a big turkey dinner as well. We don’t mind. Actually, we love it so much, we usually make one other full turkey dinner in late winter/early spring just for the heck of it. Creatures of habit, we are. Similarly, Thanksgiving brunch always means a pumpkin treat will be on the menu. That is just how it goes, and it’s something everyone looks forward to....

Pina Colada Smoothie {Frozen Treat Week}

Pina Colada Smoothie1

The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy. In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious. I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream....

Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve {Frozen Treat Week}

DSC_1572(small)

By now I’m sure most of you have heard of banana soft serve. (If not, you will absolutely die when you try it.) Also called “yonanas”, banana soft serve is frozen banana blended with whatever flavorings (like vanilla extract, cocoa powder, espresso powder, etc.) or add-ins (like toasted almonds, coconut, chocolate chips, etc.) you like. The best part is that it has the same creamy texture as soft serve ice cream. (The first time I ever saw banana soft serve was on Gena’s brilliant blog, Choosing Raw.) As you can imagine, this delicious treat is incredibly versatile and completely perfect for when you want ice […]...

3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet {Frozen Treat Week}

DSC_1349(small)2

There are so many things that I make for myself on a near-daily basis that I just don’t think about sharing the recipe for. Silly things. Like this caramelized onion + goat cheese omelet, this cabbage hash + fried eggs, or this pretty little breakfast number. Or an almost-instant, healthy treat (that I promise tastes more indulgent than healthy), like this cherry-chocolate sorbet that can be easily whipped up when a sweet craving strikes....

Vegan Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk

This is one of those recipes that you might look at and think Hmmm…now what am I going to do with that?! Surprisingly, it has so many uses beyond its obvious use as a substitute for regular (store-bought) sweetened, condensed milk....

Indian-Spiced Roasted Potatoes

One of our favorite summer meals is tandoori chicken cooked on a charcoal grill. Using a charcoal grill takes quite a bit more work than a gas grill, but the smoky flavor is completely worth it. (Plus, Mike is in charge of the grilling so it doesn’t matter to me…and he enjoys it. :) )...

Vegan Pimento “Cheese” Spread

If you’ve ever been invited to my house for a meal, or if I’ve ever been invited to your house and brought a dish to pass, you probably already know that I love surprise ingredients…I get really excited and even a little giddy.  My mantra usually goes something like this:  I made _____ (fill in the blank with any normal sounding dish), but there’s a secret ingredient – guess what it is!...

Cookbook Review & Recipe for Baked Omelet with Potato, Scallion, & Turkey Bacon

IMG_7548 (Small)

I recently received a copy of Silvana Nardone’s (Editor-in-Chief, Everyday with Rachael Ray) cookbook called Cooking for Isaiah.  Silvana developed the gluten- and dairy-free recipes contained in this book when her son Isaiah was diagnosed with food sensitivities to these items.  (It really is a very moving story…and I love Silvana’s dedication, which reads in part “…together, love and food are nature’s greatest healer.”  I think this is so true of so many ailments!)  Double-Decker Toasted Cornbread and Spicy Greens Stack Since so many people are finding that they have sensitivities to gluten and dairy, I was thrilled to receive this book and share my […]...
