Paleo Applesauce Breakfast Bread

Paleo Applesauce Breakfast Bread

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 […]

Healthy Apple Crumble (Vegan, Gluten free)

Healthy Apple Crumble (Vegan, Gluten free)

Once the weather changes, all I want to do is bake. Holiday flavors are my favorite, because NOTHING smells better than cinnamon as it is cooking. When it comes to easy, festive desserts, crumbles are hands down, the best way to go; they are warm, gooey, and there’s no finicky pie crust needed! This healthy […]

Breakfast Quinoa Power Bowls

Breakfast Quinoa Power Bowls

This recipe for breakfast quinoa power bowls is actually one of my old creations that I decided to revamp, making it easier, quicker, and just as tasty! While I will forever love oatmeal, it’s good to take a break every once in a while, and quinoa is a ready substitute when you’re craving a warm, […]

Lemon Blueberry Baked Donuts (Pancake Mix)

Lemon Blueberry Baked Donuts

Hello dear readers! I have been quiet here on the blog because the past couple weeks have been insane—this is the busiest I’ve ever been, even pre-Covid! With back to back to back auditions, fittings, shooting commercials, my food photography business, and running four separate Instagram accounts, I am stretched pretty thin. That being said, […]

Easy Vegan Spelt Biscuits

Easy Vegan Spelt Biscuits

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.

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans (Instant Pot Friendly)

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans

For years I’ve heard about Britain’s obsession with beans on toast, beans on baked potatoes, beans on everything! I’ve never really understood it, American baked beans are sooo sweet, I can barely eat a couple spoonfuls. But then I thought, what if they weren’t so sweet? What if they were tomato-y, and only slightly sweet, […]

Quick Lemon Parsley Pasta

Quick Lemon Parsley Pasta

When I say this quick lemon parsley pasta comes together fast, I mean FAST. While waiting for the pasta water to boil, I prepped all the ingredients, then did some laundry, checked my email, and washed some dishes. And since I used chickpea linguine from Banza, this meal had enough protein for me to feel […]

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Have you ever found yourself in a position, say after taco night, when you have a few corn tortillas leftover? Those pesky 3 or 4, sit waiting in the fridge for weeks on end. Until eventually you give up and throw them away? Zero judgement, I’ve done it many times. Until I realized I could […]

Sweet Potato Nacho Pie

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

We’ve made it to Super Bowl Sunday, one of the best holidays for SNACKS. Earlier this week I whipped up this sweet potato nacho pie for lunch and it was unanimously voted onto Sunday’s menu. It’s a fork and plate situation, and I’m 100% ok with it. Imagine veggie fajitas, that are baked, with melted […]

Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

Ever since I created my recipe for vegan oil-free banana muffins, I’ve been making them non-stop. I sit and wait for my bananas to get super ripe then whip up a batch for breakfast, snack, or just because. But then my friend shared a chocolate muffin recipe with me and I thought, ok, let’s pivot.
