Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

This year I made my own birthday cake. How else are you supposed to get exactly the cake you want if you don’t make it yourself? Having returned from Puerto Rico that week, I wanted to keep up with the vegan deliciousness. Also, after eating so many whole foods and no processed sugar, cake and … Continue reading Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Life After Puerto Rico…

Yes life goes on after getting back from an amazing vacation. It's always a sad first few days back in the real world! It’s been far too long since I’ve been posting regularly on the blog… I sit here right now after my first full day of having no real plans since moving into my … Continue reading Life After Puerto Rico…

Coconut Cream Fruit Tart

This recipe has been in the works in my head for quite a while. I have always loved looking at fruit tarts in the grocery store and bakery, but they are such a disappointment whenever I actually try them. I don't much care for pastry crust or custard, which already kills two thirds of it. Good … Continue reading Coconut Cream Fruit Tart

Last Sunday, I made a big batch of cumin and garlic spiced beans and veggies that I ate for … Continue reading Spicing Things Up

I love carrot cake and still do, but I remember being a little surprised after reading the recipe the first time. … Continue reading Morning Glory Oatmeal

Paleo Peppermint Donuts

Here is the long awaited brunch recipe. I’ve wanted to try this one for a while because it is healthy (paleo), mint, chocolate, and brunch. I even discovered a new favorite while making these: whipped coconut cream! These donuts use it as frosting. I used it for frosting, sampling while frosting, snacking, and eating plain … Continue reading Paleo Peppermint Donuts

On the Go: Overnight Oats

I made it through my first week of work! If it hadn’t been for mason jars and overnight oats, I might have gone back to eating way too many Clif bars a day… But with my oats sitting in the refrigerator in a portable jar every morning, I could eat them en route to work. … Continue reading On the Go: Overnight Oats
