No-Bake Cookie Dough Ice Cream Squares

Summer barbecues are the things that culinary dreams are made of. Juicy burgers, fresh tomatoes, corn on the cob… I love everything about standard summer cuisine and its simplicity. While s’mores, watermelon, and ice cream cones are tried and true crowd pleasers, sometimes, putting a little spin on an otherwise delicious, yet predictable, menu can […]

Creamy Avocado and Lemon Pasta

If you love creamy, lemon pasta, but don’t want to consume all of the unhealthy cream, this avocado cream pasta dish is for you! Make it vegan by leaving out the yogurt. This is probably too strong for those who don’t like lemon, but I was in heaven with a large amount of black pepper on top. […]

Deliciously Simple Carrot Soup

This soup has some serious waves of flavor going on – with subtle Thai noes thanks to the curry paste and coconut milk, it carries from sweet to a little spicy, with delicious added creaminess and crunch from the cashews and toppings. Its beautiful colors will brighten up any dinner table and guests can add […]

Chocolate Date Nut Brownies

These bites are an excellent fix for your chocolate craving, or for making your sweet toothed-children happy without giving in to their cookie and brownie whims! They pack a lot of flavor in each bite, with delectable hints of vanilla and chocolate. Your kids won’t know they contain fruit and will love how fudgy and gooey they are, and, […]

Easiest Ever Homemade Granola

Always a sucker for a bargain, I recently was compelled to purchase four bags of Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats because they were on sale two for $5. How could I resist? The major catch is that I’m the person in my home who actually likes oatmeal, so I probably over did it a tad […]

The Best Graham Cracker Crust Recipe Ever

The crust game is serious business. A faulty crust can ruin an otherwise perfect pie, mousse, or crumble. That’s why I created a no frills crust that’ll be your new go-to for your dessert favorites. (Okay, it’s dessert. Dessert’s got some frills!) I filled this crust with this Coconut Chocolate Mousse recipe and chilled for 6-8 hours […]

The Only Mousse Recipe You’ll Ever Need

My personal goal is to eat healthful, organic foods 70 percent of the time. The remaining 30 percent is pretty much devoted to buffalo wings, scotch, and dessert. Of course, I love chocolate anything, but I’m simply obsessed with any kind of lemon or banana-flavored dessert. I’m also infatuated with Cool Whip, so much so […]

Caramel Applesauce

Every time I make applesauce, I’m reminded how it’s probably the easiest thing to do. It has little to no prep, and you could switch up the flavors to whatever your heart, or you little baby’s heart, desires! Recently, my little one was getting FOUR of her molars at the same time, and, needless to […]

Quick and Easy Avocado Dressing

There’s nothing better than a versatile sauce you can use any time. As a salad dressing, a sauce, or all around flavor enhancer, this is a great recipe to give your dish that little extra effortless oomph it needs. The first night, we had it on a salad and added lemon, which made it taste […]

Butternut Squash and Leek Soup

Another great recipe for soup lovers! Soup is great because it’s filling and warm and inviting, all while being perfect for your littlest eaters. This recipe helped me sneak nutritious vegetables into my 4-year-old’s diet and helped me use up 2 huge leeks I received in this month’s farm delivery. Luckily, the family gave this […]
