Peach Cobbler

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Vegan

It’s not very often that my non-foodie husband gets excited about food, but this is one of those rare occasions that I see his eyes light up with excitement of the pure mention of this dish. Summer is here, which means peaches are everywhere. Am I the only one who constantly sings the song “Peaches” by the Presidents of the USA from the nineties? Millions of peaches, peaches for me.

Buckeye Brownies

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Vegan

The first time I made Buckeyes, I was hooked. My family has always been a bunch of peanut-butter-loving-fanatics, so these little homemade goodies quickly skyrocketed to the top of the list of favorite sweet treats.

However; I’m also a sucker for brownies. (more…)

Death by Chocolate Cupcakes

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Vegan

Recently, I was asked to make some Gluten-Free Vegan Cupcakes for a child’s birthday party after one of my unsuspecting victims tried my Carrot Cupcakes. These days I tend to shy away from making traditional desserts if I can, but was happy to oblige in contributing a healthier option. While talking to the mom about cupcakes, she asked if I could also make “something chocolate.” I believe that is a possibility. (more…)

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Plant-Based/Vegan

While I was sitting on the couch enjoying my coffee on a Sunday morning, I looked over at the kitchen and spotted them. There they were, bananas that were browning. My husband saw me staring, and asked what I was thinking about. “Those bananas are getting brown! I can making Banana Oatmeal Cookies with them today!!” I exclaimed. He chuckled, and said, “You get wayyyy too excited about food.” I disagree. (more…)

White Bean Chili

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Vegan/Vegetarian/Plant-Based

A friend of mine reached out and asked me if I had a good white chili recipe, and it dawned on me that I had never made it. How is this possible?? Well, it is. I’m glad the fire was lit under my booty with this idea, because this quickly came one of my favorite go-to soups to eat that is packed with fiber, veggies, and nutrients. Hmm, is this another recipe where I can hide some pureed cauliflower to unsuspecting victims? Why yes…yes it is. (more…)

Lemon Bars

Well, I’ve been looking for recipes lately that are different from what usually come out of my kitchen.  As I was flipping through a recipe book at the dinner table, I came across a recipe for lemon bars.  I looked at my husband and asked, “Do you like lemon bars?” and he replied, “I don’t think I’ve ever had them, but I do like lemon flavored stuff, so I probably would like them.”  I nodded.  He’s almost always open to trying something new, especially with food.  After doing some research on different recipes for lemon bars, I combined what other people had recommended and suggested for making the recipes even better, and got to work.
