no-bake chocolate oat snack bites

If you are a fan of no-bake cookies, then these snack bites will likely be right up your alley. The main differences are these have hardly any sugar (just a bit of maple syrup), no boiling on the stove is required, and they contain a few healthier ingredients so we can get away with calling […]

pasta with roasted red pepper cream sauce

Someone please tell me if I’m missing out, but most years Patrick and I do not go out to dinner on Valentine’s day. We generally find ourselves at home or hanging out with friends. I’ll be honest, it gives me an excuse to make pasta for dinner and something indulgent and chocolate-y for dessert (like THIS […]

vegan tropical smoothie

roasted cauliflower soup

I had every intention of posting this recipe on the first day of fall, but like most things right now, our newborn’s needs trump nearly everything else. I’m fairly certain that baby spit up has touched every upholstered surface of our home, and I reached a new low this morning when I (knowingly) drank a […]

bruschetta with heirloom tomato, mozzarella, and herbs

It should be a crime to waste tomatoes during their peak season – so if you find yourself in possession of fresh tomatoes nearing overripe-ness, promise me you’ll do something about it. I know this recipe calls for heirloom tomatoes but really any decent variety will work, as long as they are fresh and ripe. […]
