Paleo Vanilla-Banana Chia Pudding (21 Day Sugar Detox-Compliant)

I hate getting a cold in the springtime. Just when I think I’m out of the woods for a wintertime cold, I wake up on a lovely May day and my throat is on fire. Then I can’t stop coughing. And the only thing I […]

Gluten-Free Popcorn-Pistachio Macaroons with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

It’s been two years since I moved to California and it’s become my new home. However, I’m still an Indiana girl at heart. What do you think of when you think of Indiana? Corn. And maybe cows. But corn should be pretty high on your […]

Greek Yogurt and Fresh Fig Parfait

Greek Yogurt and Fresh Fig Parfait

  At work there is a small fig tree that I have been waiting to ripen up for weeks. Once they started to look very dark and one side sagged a little bit with the weight of the seeds and sugar inside, I knew they […]

Dairy-Free Chocolate Pecan Fudge

Dairy-Free Chocolate Pecan Fudge

This recipe didn’t go how I planned at all, but the results are delicious! I planned to make a layered dairy-free chocolate pecan toffee inspired by a YouTube video. The final step, where the chocolate chips are added, didn’t work. There wasn’t enough heat to […]

Grain-Free Coco-Nutty Pumpkin Bread

Grain-Free Coco-Nutty Pumpkin Bread

Recently I had a head cold that I, thankfully, got over quickly. I was craving pumpkin bread, so I used my apple cinnamon coconut flour muffin recipe as a template recipe. This is just as good as the wheat-based version, in my opinion! The consistency […]

Arugula Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

Arugula Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

I eat a lot of salads because they’re easy to prepare and healthy, but they can get old fast. By using different greens and homemade dressings, I keep my salads from being boring. I love arugula, which has a lot more flavor that plain old […]
