Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I love early mornings. Every morning, after my alarm sounds, I sleepily walk to the kitchen and slowly make myself a coffee. I watch the gorgeous glow of the sun gently creep above the horizon. I physically and mentally do nothing other than sip my coffee and day dream as I patiently wait for it… Continue reading Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread


Quinoa Chili

Call me crazy, but there's something totally liberating about traveling somewhere new and unfamiliar by yourself.  So with a) that in mind, b) the celebration of landing a new job and c) the realization that I probably won't be able to take time off for a while, I bought a round trip ticket to Dallas… Continue reading Quinoa Chili


Rustic Roasted Garlic Tomato and Avocado Toast

Every summer when I was a kid my parents would ship me off to Hamilton, Ontario (Canada) to spend a few weeks with my grandma. I loved visiting her, but I absolutely dreaded the food that I was going to be forced to eat. She was the healthiest of the healthy. She had severe macular… Continue reading Rustic Roasted Garlic Tomato and Avocado Toast


Vegan Cornbread

I have a crush on Eastern Texas right now. It's sick. I'm in Miami which is absolutely GORGEOUS and amazing and I'm day dreaming about Eastern Texas. Yes, Eastern, not Western. Western Texas is what I think about when an old Clint Eastwood movie comes on. Not that I have anything against Clint Eastwood movies,… Continue reading Vegan Cornbread


Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

Ok, so these aren't vegan. I've recently realized that vegan baking is a tough feat and I'm not sure if I'm committed enough yet to give up butter (Sorry to all you die-hard vegans out there). I love butter. I love licking the spoon after I've mixed the butter and sugar together. Gross, I know,… Continue reading Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites


Vegan Alfredo Pasta Sauce

Three weeks ago I packed my life into 12 boxes and moved across the country. I left a job that I was happy with, family that I love and friends that added a lot of smiles and laughter to my everyday life ... Now, I'm frantically looking for a job and I don't know anyone.… Continue reading Vegan Alfredo Pasta Sauce


Almost Vegan Baked French Toast

I woke up this morning, brushed my teeth, and walked downstairs to make myself some coffee.  As I'm trying to find a coffee mug I hear the sound of little feet running towards me at the speed of light.  It's my little cousin.  She's wearing puffy polka dot shorts that make her resemble a little… Continue reading Almost Vegan Baked French Toast


Simple Light Nut-Free Basil Olive Pesto Pasta with Chopped Tomatoes and Gouda

This is the laziest, fastest and cheapest dinner I've made in a long time AND IT IS SO GOOD I'VE GAINED 5 POUNDS IN THE LAST TWO DAYS (because I've made it twice). If you have a love-hate relationship with carbs (like me) Proceed WITH CAUTION. Ingredients: 1 cup of basil leaves 3 garlic cloves… Continue reading Simple Light Nut-Free Basil Olive Pesto Pasta with Chopped Tomatoes and Gouda


Fluffy Egg-Free Biscuits

I woke up this morning to the sound of rain and a quiet house.  Moseyed over to the kitchen, boiled some water for tea and whipped up a small batch of biscuits.   After a week of holiday buzz including, but not limited to, large family gatherings, airport traffic, high calamity cooking, debauchery and boozification,… Continue reading Fluffy Egg-Free Biscuits


Raw Vegan Chocolate Crunch Bars

Until this morning I didn't know what a mulberry was or what it looked like so when I Googled "Mulberry" to get a visual reference as to what I was going to be looking for in grocery store, I was really surprised to find out what an interesting fruit the Mulberry is!  Apparently, the silkworm… Continue reading Raw Vegan Chocolate Crunch Bars
