One Bowl Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies (vegan + gf)

onebowljumbochocolatechunkcookiesohsheglows-4259

Having my mom here for the last several days was such a treat. I’ve felt a bit like a basket case lately as we’re dealing with some behavioural issues (the munchkin, not the mom!), and having her here made the world of difference. As I’ve written about in my birth story, the presence of other […]

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 […]

Houston, we have a working oven! This is what I screamed to Eric when I turned on our newly installed oven for the first time this weekend. To celebrate this momentous occasion I made something I’ve been craving for the past 6 weeks – warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies. [Fact: store-bought cookies just aren’t the same.] Then […]

Dear Mom, If we lived close by, I would make you this strawberry mango crisp for Mother’s Day brunch. It’s pretty, bubbly, and sweet, with many different layers. Just like you. There’s a nutty layer too – wink, wink. (Two teenage girls in the house can do that to a person!) When I think back […]

Summer Fever Strawberry Lime Granita…just 4-ingredients!

Eric thinks I’m getting senile. I would have to agree…when it comes to certain things. Like limes. We were unloading groceries the other day when he came across a huge stash of limes buried deep in the crisper. "Why on earth are you hoarding limes?"  he asked holding up this huge bag of limes as […]

Before we get to these fudgy cookie dough cups, let’s talk about the June salad challenge for a sec. I never thought I would get such a positive response about a salad challenge of all things, but your response blew me away. I’ve already seen many of you blogging and tweeting about it, creating #saladaday […]

Are you feeling as well rested as I am today? I could seriously bounce off the walls right now and there isn’t a lick of caffeine in my body. Man, the extra hour is the best…aside from that whole getting dark earlier thing. That really put a wrinkle in my lasagna dinner photography plans last […]

Our Perfect Veggie Burger

IMG_8700

For the past several months, I’ve been on a quest to make a veggie burger that had everything on our wish list. I’ve probably made over 100 veggie burgers and they all came up short, either by just a tiny bit or by a landslide. I’m always asked what I do with failed recipes and […]
