Sage & Butternut Squash Breakfast Bake

You know what’s incredible? Living in a place where the seasons change, it gets chilly in Autumn, freezing in the Winter, and warm in Spring and Summer. In no way am I hating on my home state of California, but my favorite places I’ve lived in my life are those characteristic of having 4 seasons….

Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding

During school weekdays it’s an extremely rare occasion for me to actually have time for a sit down breakfast, especially when classes start at 8 AM! I usually find myself having breakfast on my way to class while simultaneously sipping coffee and brushing up on material to prepare myself for pop quizzes. Yeah, mornings are…

Fig Prosciutto & Hawaiian BBQ Pizza

Let’s have a pizza party and talk about life, okay? Sometimes all you need is a cozy movie sesh with your bestest friends and a big ol slice of pizza. (or 2) Ain’t nothing wrong with that!  My favorite meal to make when friends come over is pizza and salad. SO EASY and SO FUN….

Ham & Broccoli Egg Muffins

It’s that time of year again, and I don’t know if I should cry because summer is over or be happy that Fall is nearing. Either way, it’s back to school time! When I was a kid, my favorite thing in the entire world was sitting down for breakfast and reading the comic section of…

Chocolate Raspberry Almond Tart

I’m having a grade A panic attack and need chocolate STAT. Like seriously, all the chocolate and maybe some liquid encouragement too. (sorry, mom) Can we talk about the fact that I’m leaving for Arizona in approx. 3 days and have so much to get done before I go? Haircut, keratin treatment, mani pedi, clothes…

Coconut Cherry Pecan Granola

Recipe #2 that uses leftover almond pulp from making almond milk is finally here, and oh so tasty! I’m always struggling to find granola thats not pumped full of sugar and preservatives and the only solution to that issue is making your own! It’s so simple, requires minimal ingredients, and is even more delicious that what you…

Vegan Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice cream

I promise that all other times, besides this one, I have self control. Normally my willpower is strong, I swear! But not this time, nope. Summer and ice cream go hand in hand and they’re currently showing no signs of letting go, thank goodness. Last week, I bought a pint of sodelicious mint chocolate chip,…

Maple Cinnamon Almond Milk

Hang on tight, dear readers, because this post is about to rock your world. Let me be the first to tell you that my beginning attempts at homemade almond milk were far from successful. And I mean way far, somewhere in neverland. I had the most difficult time getting my almond milk to be as…

Pineapple & Veggie Teriyaki Skewers

In my opinion, summer time means grilling time! My fondest memories of summer time as a little kid revolve around backyard barbecues with family and friends, swimming, and maybe even some s’mores around the fire if nobody had beaten each other up that day. I’d like to think that I’ve moved on from the traditional…

Coconut Berry Firecracker Ice Pops

Fourth of July is closely approaching and I’m just beginning to put together a menu for the big day! We’re smoking a brisket all day long with homemade barbecue sauce, grilling up some veggies, and baking some potatoes. Dessert is cherry pie, per my Dad’s request. (Paleo cherry crisp for me!) But I also wanted…

Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream Sandwiches

URGENT. I’m disrupting your Saturday morning to bring to you one of the greatest ideas I’ve ever had. Let me explain. Yesterday as I was being my usual lazy self and sitting contently on the sofa binge watching Orange is the New Black (cause don’t we all?), I was so rudely interrupted from watching my girl…

Italian Baked Eggs

In the mornings I find myself, more often than not, blankly staring inside the refrigerator trying to sort out a collective breakfast amongst all the random leftovers we always seem to have. Sometimes it’s a total flop. But sometimes, and I mean on a rare occasion, when we have more than a half eaten turkey sandwich and…
