Deconstructed Veggie Sushi Bowl

Deconstructed Veggie Sushi Bowl

One of the coolest things I learned how to do in 2020 was make homemade sushi rolls. Creating those colorful little gems satisfied my inner artist, as well as my foodie heart. The downside? They take a long time to make. The rice itself takes around 2 hours to cook and cool. So what do […]

Vanilla Matcha Collagen Pancakes

Vanilla Matcha Collagen Pancakes

Another week has flown by, and in the midst of all the running around, I found myself falling back on my old breakfast staple: pancakes. When I am stressed, or crazy busy, I try to carve out time to relax, and for me, a quiet 20 minutes at the stove flipping flap jacks usually does […]

Easy Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Easy Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Dessert is a funny thing at Thanksgiving; we tend to make a big deal about it, but when push comes to shove, bellies are too full to enjoy it! I tend to go for a sliver of this, or a bite of that, really just because I don’t want to miss out on anything. This […]

For a while now, I’ve had ideas about a sweet potato breakfast bowl, sweet, not savory. But it wasn’t until last week, that I blew my own brain, and taste buds, with this flavor bomb of a meal. I had no idea how easy making a sweet potato breakfast bowl would be, or how filling […]

Spruced up with caramelized onion, plenty of garlic, spices, and bone broth, this creamy carrot soup is heart-warming and flavorful. The best side kick for […]

Chili Lime Watermelon

Chili Lime Watermelon

As the heat wave swept through the country last week, and temperatures here in Los Angeles hit 116 degrees, I turned to this chili lime watermelon for relief. Unlike a snow storm, life is expected to go on as normal during extreme heat, so hydration is key. When I get really hot, my appetite goes, […]

Sweet Potato Pudding

With rain in the forecast and chilly weather sweeping across the country, my body has been asking for comfort food. I’m not sure when I started making sweet potato pudding; maybe about six years ago? It has the earthiness of potatoes, but is creamy like pumpkin pie. And on a cold, dark night, it is […]

Gluten free Dutch Apple Baby

In my family dutch babies, were known as oven pancakes. They are baked at high heat in cast iron skillets (Pyrex pie pans work in a pinch), and have four ingredients: flour, milk, eggs, and butter.
