Cauliflower Bolognese

“No this is not a joke and you don’t have to be a vegetarian to love what’s going on here”  🤣🤣🤣 I mean. Hilarious. But also true. This Cauliflower Bolognese is vegan, gluten free, packed with veggies, vitamins and fiber… and nothing short of amazing. I can’t take credit though, Bon Appetit said this and…

Avocado Fridge Fudge

Yes another Bon Appetit recipe. Sigh. What can I say, when you’re good, you’re good. You can find the original recipe here. I removed the toasted almonds, but pretty much kept everything else the same. To be honest, I removed the almonds because I only had about 20 minutes to make it before heading out…

Easy Weeknight Red Thai Curry

Red Thai Curry I love this dish because it is, well delicious most importantly, and also a great meal you can prepare ahead of time if you have a really busy afternoon and know you won’t be able to make it back with enough mental stamina to prepare supper! It happens to me often… And…

Christmas Cookies 2019

Sheesh, it sure took me long enough! And I honestly almost boxed these babies up and forgot to post. Lucky for me, I found an Instagram challenge of all things that reminded me. These little cookie boxes are great gifts for teachers, friends, neighbors etc. We give them to the USPS, UPS, Fed Ex folks,…

Chia Jams

And no, I’m not talking about 90s style Chia Pet jingles. I’m talking jams and jellies made with chia seeds that will change your life! I recently discovered these and I cannot stop making them. It’s so easy and they’re so versatile! I’ve made grape jam, raspberry jam (personal favorite) and blueberry jam so far….

Coq Au Vin, Instant Pot Edition

Gosh I love this meal. And the French. Only they could turn an inexpensive meat like chicken thighs, braise it in some wine and turn it into a gourmet dish. Coq Au Vin sounds super fancy, but it’s shockingly simple. And you can throw it in the Instant Pot or Dutch Oven in the morning…

Saag Paneer(ish)

The funny thing is I don’t even know how to pronounce this dish… 🤣😬🤷🏻‍♀️ I just know that it is DELICIOUS! It’s like creamed spinach with these warm and flavorful Indian Spices. I had it at a local Indian restaurant here, then saw it in Bon Apetit Magazine and had to try it with my…

Cashew Butter and Jelly Cups

I mean… hubba hubba. Get in my belly? All the yum? Flipping delish? I mean. How would you caption this?! All of the above?… Even more amazing than the Reese’s PB Cup, if I may be so bold. I found this recipe from The Mindful Hapa and had to make it immediately!… with my 3…

Charred Endive Salad with Apples and Blue Cheese Dressing

So there I was. In Trader Joes. When suddenly I saw some Endives and thought, “gosh I’ve never in my life had an Endive. I should probably pick up 8 or so and experiment…” I think it turned out ok. But it did take about 8 or so for me to get this where I…

Monster Lemon Bars

They look like monsters and have a MONSTER flavor. Lol. Yummy and fun and healthy! A triple win in my book. These are basically lemon bars, but I was gifted a bunch of really fun Superfoods from Suncore and had to try them out. Also, I have to say- I loved what the Sapphire Wolfberry…
