As many of you know, I am not a fruit eater. I know, I know, that sounds crazy, especially for someone who spent 7 years as a vegetarian. I will tell you point blank that I have never missed fruit. I am in no way sad about “missing out” on fruity desserts, I have no […]
The truth is, I just love cookies. And even though I try to eat healthily, I still want to eat cookies. So I started making myself these easy peasy little chocolate cookie bites, and they satisfy my cravings while still offering nutrients! These babies are sweet and a hint of salty, chewy, chocolatey, and crisp.
At my house, we like to eat our Thanksgiving dinner in the middle of the afternoon rather than at night. But no matter how much I tell myself to save room for the big meal, my body still thinks it wants to eat at lunchtime. Obviously, the solution is appetizers! You cannot go wrong with these easy […]
I’m going to say what maybe some of you have also thought: Christmas has been making me a little nervous since last January. Christmas is a season of joy and light and life! And cookies. And parties. And desserts. And indulgence with family and friends.

Yet, like everyone in my generation, when I want to figure out what is for dinner, I usually ask Pinterest. Which is why it’s so weird that I have been cooking lately from magazine clippings and *gasp* the actual […]
Admit it. You love veggie burgers. You can’t escape the truth. Veggie burgers are one of the best things about being vegetarian, in my opinion. (Why eat something boring when you can eat something creative?) And these beet burgers with quinoa and black beans are no exception! They are delightful and hearty and a little […]
I have a new favorite dessert. Them be fighting words, people. Favorite is a strong statement. It’s almond butter cups. You know, like peanut butter cups, but with almonds. And, surprise! Oats! And coconut oil! And maple syrup! Instead of a dry, crumbly nut center, these cups have an almost cookie-like base with homemade chocolate […]
I know you are probably getting sick of sweets from me. And I was all geared up to share a few simple savories…but then I realized it’s going to be Valentine’s day very soon. And I have a long tradition of covering you in chocolate for Valentine’s day. Chocolate is, after all, one of my first […]
