Vegan Chickpea Cheezy Stuffed Mushrooms

So I had some mushrooms in the fridge that were in a “use it or lose it situation.” These vegan stuffed mushrooms were the perfect way to rescue them! They’ll probably be that much more delicious using mushrooms that are at their prime. 😉 It’s been a good day over here so far. I spent…

Goat Cheese, Beet and Jalapeño Flatbread

This is my healthier at-home version of our beloved Bo-Beau Kitchen flatbread: goat cheese, beet and jalapeño. AKA three things you wouldn’t really think to put together. But, this unique flatbread combination is so right. The component that helps bring everything together is a sweet onion-tomato spread. To make this, all I did was heat…

Hi! How’s the day going? So happy you liked the tartlet recipe! Let me know if you give them a whirl 🙂 Anyone else going through a major mid-summer closet purge?

Grain-Free Apricot Tartlets

The night before last was officially pizza night. We still hadn’t made our weekly Trader Joe’s and Costco runs, and when I stared in the fridge trying to mentally assemble components into a decent dinner option, the dessert radar kept going off.

The best vegan sushi

Whenever I see the fam, I can expect the usual shenanigans. Food and laughter are the main components, with lots of stories, random games, spontaneously passing out on the couch from a food coma, and then repeating. I can also expect that my Uncle E will share some amazing cooking tips or a new recipe…

Zucchini pasta salad with creamy cashew sauce

Bringing back wacky out-of-the-box salads with this zucchini pasta salad. Even though, let’s be real, they’re around our house pretty much every day 😉 During the summer, I tend to get a little overzealous with the produce options and create some pretty interesting salad combos. Sometimes they’re home runs, and other times, they’re FGO (For…

No-Bake Blueberry Jam Bars

I have this grand vision of the (very) distant future: I am an awesome grandma and I always have some type of fresh-baked cookies waiting for visitors in the cookie jar. For now, it’s this random Pyrex dish. Each week, there’s something entirely different for snacking: amazeballs, protein fudge, granola bars, cookies, muffins or whatever…

Berry Lemon Chia Jam

I started a new thing where if we’re out of something, I’ll try to make it from scratch. This doesn’t work for the obvious staples (like eggs. We go through 172 each week), but little things like almond butter and jam. Berry Lemon Chia Seed Jam One night, I was packing Livi’s lunch up for…

Spiced smashed potatoes

Potato, potahhhhhto…… I feel like I’ve had a few successes today:  1) I took a barre class, two days after the half marathon, as part of my training for work. (My first full practice class is Thursday! Wahoo!) I was on the fence if this was a success or failure, as I couldn’t complete about…
