A few years ago Nice Cream took the Pinterest world by storm when people realized they could make “ice cream” with frozen bananas! It was simple, only required 2 or 3 healthy ingredients, it is naturally vegan and paleo and dairy-free and all the things. I even made it for my best friend’s toddler one time when they were visiting. I thought he’d be so stoked to make his own ice cream! As it turns out, I just traumatized him with my loud food processor. But in the end I did win him over with some delicious banana nice cream.Read More
Hi friends! It’s been a while. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I’ve taken a step back for a moment. I’ve been going through some really difficult personal stuff recently and trying to just take care of myself and do what’s best for me. While I love sharing delicious food with you in this space, it does require emotional output. I’ve felt so torn because I want to be here with you, but I just didn’t feel like I had the emotional bandwidth to focus on this right now.Read More
We are now LESS than a week from Christmas, so this is the last treat recipe for a while. Today I was feeling that familiar Christmas sugar overload, so in January I’ve gotta turn this ship around. But for now, let’s enjoy some seasonal treats!Read More
YUM! OOoooo, just looking at this picture makes me want to run to the kitchen and whip up a batch of this chia pudding. If you haven't had chia pudding, you've got to check it out. I can see how a somewhat slimy texture can be off-putting, but I find chia pudding really satisfying and delicious. And I think you'll be happy to know that this version is super creamy, and not slimy.Read More
The very first time I visited New York City was on St. Patrick's Day. Bad planning. It's basically just drunk people dressed in green running amuck. It is probably the same across the country, but everything in New York City is on 100 at all times. So, of course it also involved seeing a drunk, green-clad guy get hit by a cab. For some reason I still decided I should move there...Read More
I've probably mentioned it before, but grain-free baking is SO HARD! Well, recipe testing is anyway. It's such a science, a science that I do not have mastered. I've gotten really lucky and nailed some cookie recipes, but like I said...that was luck, haha. Cake was a whole new adventure for me.
I decided I needed to create a chocolate cake recipe. Valentine's Day is coming up, and I don't have many super indulgent, special desserts on the blog yet. My first attempt was a version of chocolate mayonnaise cake, thinking I'd try to keep it as simple as possible (nobody wants to spend hours making dessert).Read More
