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

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

Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Happy belated Pi Day and happy early St. Patrick’s Day! I never really got too excited about either holiday on its own, as I didn’t even realize Pi Day was a holiday until a few years ago, and I am exactly 0% Irish. However, when you combine the two days, you get a celebration of … Continue reading Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Black Forest Oatmeal

When I wake up on weekends, I usually spend the first 10 minutes in bed, scrolling through Pinterest to see if anyone posted any delicious looking breakfast recipes. Usually, nothing catches my eye (or stomach), and I proceed to scroll through my own pins. Some day, I really will make one of the five versions … Continue reading Black Forest Oatmeal
