Coconut Flour Shortbread Date Caramel Twix Bars

Annnnd then I snapped my fingers and POOF. Turned these ingredients: Into… Twix Bars! Well maybe it wasn’t THAT easy, but it wasn’t bad I promise. Seems daunting. First shortbread. Then a caramel. And THEN a chocolate topping. Uughhh. But it goes by quick. And you can multi task. Like while the shortbread is baking,…

“The Collard is the New Tortilla”… Burrito

I’m tellin ya. It’s true. Found these enormous fresh Collards at the Farmers Market and immediately thought “burritos!” Weird, I know, but I’m weird so it makes sense. I didn’t actually even make these burritos for dinner. I stuffed them full of other leftovers and ate on them throughout the week. They are these perfect…

Chocolate Covered Caramel(y) PB Eggs

Ok. If y’all tell me these don’t look like little miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs I might cry. I spent wayyyyy too much time on them 🙈. Sad, but true. Additionally. The filling for this recipe is a little on the Carmel-y tasting side (I got the filling recipe from Rachel Mansfield’s IG account, with…

Noodle(less) Veggie Pad Thai

You won’t even miss the noods. Promise. I don’t know. You be the judge. Do you miss them in there? Ok, full disclosure. I pretty much got this recipe from the Minimalist Baker blog. I made it probably 9 zillion times, made a few tweaks, removed the tofu and this is how I like it…

Buckeye Remake

… with Anti-inflammatory turmeric and no added sugar. Thought I’d leave that part out of the title, because some would just keep on scrollin’ if they read that and not even give these babies a try🤣🤷🏻‍♀️! But I promise. These are AMAZING! I adapted this from @minimalistbakers recipe for golden balls. Also super amazing. These…

Gift Bag Ideas

Taking a brief pause from my not-so-regularly scheduled recipe posts for a little gift bag idea post. Seemed timely and potentially helpful, so I figured why not. Plus I just thought they were so cute 🥰 There’s a little something for everyone and it’s super cost effective… Cost effective, but thoughtful details that will definitely…

Sourdough Adventures

Best advice. Just start. Sourdough is an intimidating thing and if you start thinking about and listing all the steps in your head, you won’t do it. It’s a lot, but it’s worth it and you can do most steps while you’re doing other things. There’s a lot of passive time. You either have to…

Holiday DIY Gifts

I love making gifts for the Thanksgiving and the holidays. It’s way fun. It makes me feel good. Keeps the stir crazy feeling at bay. And it’s usually a good time/fun bonding thing to do with the kiddos. I try and play up the whole giving over receiving thing too, but I’m pretty sure that…

Whole Roasted Chicken

Whole chickens are funny. It’s sounds so simple to cook, but they’re also kind of intimidating! At least they were for me. It took me a while before I felt like I was able to do this. I do this old school, in a Dutch oven. I’m sure an instant pot or a crock pot…

Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Wondering what to do with those pumpkin guts (as my kids call them)? Well look no further. Regular pumpkin guts, i.e. those stringy mushy bits that scoop out with the seeds makes for a really yummy soup. I promise. Maybe it’ll sound yummier if I stopped saying “guts”🤣. Pulp. We’ll call it pulp. Side note:…
