Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Avocado Garlic Aioli

crispysmashedpotatoes-1628

Meet our new favourite side dish. Yukon Gold potatoes are boiled, smashed, roasted until crispy, and then topped with a decadent, yet heart-healthy, avocado garlic aioli. Be still my heart. In the spirit of new beginnings for our little family of three, I decided to add something new to my Thanksgiving repertoire this year. Eric […]

OMG, this pudding cake. Pumpkin + chocolate + brewed coffee + pumpkin pie spices + almond milk = heaven in a dish! Heaven in a gluten-free, vegan dish, that is. And it’s easily made nut-free just by swapping out the almond milk for coconut milk. Want it soy-free too? Just use soy-free chocolate chips (such […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Anytime Squares (vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

My Toffee Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Bar recipe seems to be the hit of the season so far on the blog. I’ve had quite a few questions about how to make the bars oil-free, so I figured it was a good opportunity to play around with the recipe. Pumpkin naturally lends moisture to baked goods and […]

Chewy Molasses Spelt Cookies with Candied Ginger

I wouldn’t consider this a revolutionary concept in the slightest, but a simple tweak to my daily routine has changed everything. “Make a list.” That’s the advice Eric gave me several weeks ago when I was fizzling out. <—my term for juggling too many things at once with no clear direction on how to get […]

Pumpkin Gingerbread Snack Bars

Normally, we have our Christmas tree up by December 1st, but this year we totally dropped the bulb. It really doesn’t surprise me because I’ve been about 2 months behind throughout the course of 2013. The holidays only serve to enhance this feeling. I’ve still been so busy with book work, despite prematurely thinking that […]

Whenever I’m in the Phoenix area, I make a point to dine at True Food Kitchen. For those who aren’t familiar with True Food, the famous Dr. Andrew Weil (along with restaurateur Sam Fox) opened this restaurant in 2008. There are now several locations. The entire menu is based around Dr. Weil’s Anti-Inflammatory Diet and […]

This was supposed to be today’s post: The pie had other plans. Easy as pie? I really wanted to be mad when I opened the oven door, but I couldn’t stop laughing. Yesterday, was one of those days and I wasn’t surprised in the least. Why wouldn’t the pie explode? Murphy’s Law – when you […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Squares with Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust

pumpkinpiesquaresvegan-2816

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 […]

Gluten-Free and Vegan Graham Crackers

I’ve been in denial about this whole “November” thing. And this whole dark-at-5pm-thing. Ouch. The fall season is passing before my eyes. Suddenly, the nights feel super long and I’m going a bit stir crazy. Instead of resisting it, I’ve taken up evening hot yoga a few times a week. It just feels so good […]
