Mini Pumpkin Pie Tarts with a Sunflower Cookie Crust (Nut-free, Vegan)

veganpumpkinpienutfree (1 of 1)

A couple weeks ago, I received a reader recipe request. Let’s call him “Jason”. Jason asked if I could create a nut-free version of my Raw Pumpkin-Maple Pie with a Baked Oat Crust (found in my cookbook, page 247) because his wife can’t have cashews and pecans. Apparently, it was tormenting her not to be […]


Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix


For the past couple seasons, I’ve been on the hunt for pumpkin pie spice mix. And I’ve been slowly going crazy not being able to locate it in any local grocery stores. Don’t they know how many they would sell from me alone?! I longed for the day I would cross paths with it, making […]


Cherry-Strawberry Chia Seed Fool with Vanilla Bean Coconut Whipped Cream


My sister and family are here visiting this week and they brought us about 10 pounds of freshly picked cherries from my brother-in-law’s parent’s house (they have about 7 cherry trees…jealous!). It was like Christmas morning when this loot arrived. I’m eating these beauties by the fist full. Adriana is going wild over them. It’s […]


Banoffee Pie from My New Roots

I’m preparing to host my very first Easter dinner tomorrow – a totally plant-based menu with all the fixins! Go big or go home, I say. Usually we go to my in-laws for Easter, but this year my sister-in-law had to stay close to home for an event so we offered to host. I’m making […]


Double Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroon Tart (vegan, gluten-free, grain-free)


Halloween week without chocolate is simply a crime. We must fill our quota! Luckily, I have the perfect solution.. After teasing you with this dessert the other week (and seeing you lose your mind over it) I figured I better deliver the goods. I set a lofty goal of making this chocolate pie as friendly […]


Heavenly Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal


I’m still digging up cookbook recipes that I didn’t include in the final book. It’s like finding buried treasures in my Google document! The beauty of all the recipe testing that went down over the past 2 years is that I have so much inspiration leftover to tweak and share here – such as this […]


Vegan Pumpkin Pie Squares with Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust


After my last post, I knew I was destined to make a dessert using my gluten-free graham crackers. It’s just the right thing to do. Plus, a girl can only eat so many graham crackers for breakfast! You can imagine how nervous I felt testing this recipe – not knowing if it would turn out […]


Summer Stone Fruit Crisp


Recently, I got back into weight training. And when I say recently, I mean that I still can’t move from my workout two days ago. Is it too soon to talk about getting back into something when it’s been less than a week? That’s debatable, I suppose. Really, the pain is not that bad, but […]


Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie with Toasted Almond Crust and Strawberry Vanilla Compote


Lately, I’ve been reflecting on lessons that I’ve learned since changing my career path and branching out on my own 4 and 1/2 years ago. Trying to pursue a new field in which I had no prior experience and grow a business feels like a rollercoaster most of the time. There are many ups and […]


Baked Apples Stuffed with Cinnamon Date Pecan Oatmeal

Baked Apple Oatmeal-7375

I’m a multi-tasking addict. It’s sad to say that I can’t perform many tasks without doing other things at the same time. For instance, when I was making this recipe yesterday, I was also cooking 2 other recipes, shooting photography, and doing computer work at the same time. That’s just how I function most days. […]
