It’s Saturday morning, and I’m sitting on my patio sipping coffee and dreaming about breakfast. Most of my meals start off this way, with an idea percolating in the back of my mind. It might be an ingredient or a specific cuisine, that will gradually take shape into a recipe. And before long, I’m in […]
Even though I live in sunny California, this weekend was miserable and gloomy, not quite the blizzard in the Rocky Mountains, but still gross. To combat the dropping temperatures, I baked all day, and the results were these easy vegan spelt biscuits.
On a chilly winter day, there is nothing better than baking and cake, agreed? I made this paleo applesauce tea cake this week, when the wind was howling, and all I wanted was to bundle up, sip my favorite cuppa, and enjoy a few bites of something sweet.
Over the weekend I became obsessed with the idea of vegan Irish soda bread. And after many attempts, I finally have a recipe that ticks all the boxes. With a thick, crunchy crust, and soft middle, this loaf is designed for heaping smears of butter and your favorite jam.
One of my good friends eats vegan and oil-free for various health reasons. I love when he comes to visit because it challenges my usual methods of cooking, and I always discover exciting new recipes! These vegan oil-free banana muffins were developed just for him, and they have quickly become a staple in our house.

This happy accident was a delicious reminder of how much I love baking and how easy this celebratory breakfast is to […]
The minute Halloween is over, aka November 1st, I start planning my Thanksgiving menu. My grandma is the reigning queen of dinner rolls on the big day. She makes not one, but THREE different kinds: mini cinnamon, orange glazed, and classic crescents. And while I know that one day I will humbly follow in her […]
This morning I woke up craving zucchini bread, but when I googled a recipe, I was shocked at the ingredients. 2 cups of sugar and a cup of vegetable oil, are certainly NOT the ways I like to start my day. And so I started brainstorming, and before long, this recipe for oatmeal zucchini banana […]
Clearly I have an oat obsession. And I’m ok with that. These oat flour carrot cake muffins are sugar-free, gluten-free, flour-free, dairy-free, but still DELICIOUS. Usually when a recipe is so restrictive, I think, oh great, these sound like boring cardboard. But hang in there, because you are in for a treat with these oat […]
Few things are equal to freshly baked pastries in the morning. Yes, I am a die-hard pancake lover, but there is something magical about baking that I can’t resist. These gluten free lemon thyme scones were such a delight to make; I have always loved the idea of using herbs in sweets, or baked goods, […]
