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…

Ranchero Breakfast Tostadas

After indulging in a little too much pie and ice cream over Fourth of July weekend, I feel like I need a little bit of a diet reset. A reset in the form of breakfast tostadas. Yes, this sounds like a very good idea indeed. Crispy baked tortillas get topped with melty cheese, black beans…

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…

Summer Arugula Salad with Balsamic Reduction

Trying to come up with a family dinner for four can be hard. Especially when one of us is a celiac (me), the other is a vegetarian, one is non dairy or egg and no red meat, and the other, my poor mama, is the only one who has free range to eat whatever she…

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana Overnight Oats

I’m a firm believer that good food doesn’t need to be fancy in order to be overwhelmingly delicious. I mean, yeah serve me up some eggs benny with the fixings and I’m a happy girl, but I’m also just as satisfied with a big ol’ bowl of oatmeal for breakfast! This recipe for overnight oats…

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…

Crimini & Artichoke Millet Risotto

You know how some dishes just scream comfort? For me, these dishes are typically a steaming bowl of oatmeal, a healthy serving of my mom’s killer mac n cheese, and basically any food that involves rice. Gotta have em. (yeah! carbs) On a recent trip to the East Coast, I was sitting down at my…
