Creamy Lemon Thyme Mushrooms on Sourdough Toast

I love my life, but sometimes I’m tempted to sell everything that I own and move to the Amalfi Coast: Work in a little café 30 hours a week. Live in a little studio above a little gelato shop and shop at charming little farmers markets after my charming café day job. I would take… Continue reading Creamy Lemon Thyme Mushrooms on Sourdough Toast

Easy Overnight Coconut Chia Pudding

This is seriously one of the easiest breakfasts to put together and only requires 3 minutes of your time the night before. It’s a really great summer breakfast as it’s cold and refreshing on warm, humid summer mornings. I usually make this on a Sunday night so that my work day morning breakfasts are sorted… Continue reading Easy Overnight Coconut Chia Pudding

Cinnamon Pecan Almond Granola

Summer officially starts on June 20, but it's been insanely hot here in Phoenix for almost two months now.  Summer mornings here don't usually elicit cravings for hot foods so cold yogurt mixed fruit and granola is a great way to cool down and fuel for a busy day.  I hope that you enjoy this… Continue reading Cinnamon Pecan Almond Granola

Berry Cocoa-Nutty Smoothie Bowl

It's starting to heat up in phx, and I love the implications that come with hot weather: summer, sunshine, the beach, road trips, sundresses, mimosas, margaritas, flip flops, early morning hikes, and SMOOTHIE BOWLS to cool down 🙂  This smoothie bowl is soooo unbelievably tasty and it's packed with nutrients.  I've been eating so much… Continue reading Berry Cocoa-Nutty Smoothie Bowl

Healthy Apple Muffins

"The thing you are most afraid to write.  Write that.”  ...For me that’s happiness and sadness.  Two mutually exclusive feelings that define and alter our lives.  The summation of many variables influence our product of perceived happiness.  Priorities change, interests change, insecurities dissolve (or, in some cases, grow) and, in turn, our definition of happiness… Continue reading Healthy Apple Muffins

Sunday Morning Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Pancakes

I have turned into a pancake freak.  If I had the dedication and stamina, I would make these pancakes every morning ...and thank god that I don't because I'd probably end up 30 pounds heavier as they are SO yummy that my brain stubbornly ignores the stop signal that my stomach is sending, which results in me consuming… Continue reading Sunday Morning Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Pancakes

Gluten-Free Zucchini Lemon Muffins Topped w/Oatmeal Coconut Crumble

If I didn't have an online shopping problem before I definitely have one now. I bought nine cook books on Amazon in the span of ONE day! I clearly have no self control. I express a lack of self control in many faucets of my life including the indulgment (new word) of sugary treats. These muffins are… Continue reading Gluten-Free Zucchini Lemon Muffins Topped w/Oatmeal Coconut Crumble

Vegan Cornbread Pancakes w/Roasted Blueberry Syrup

My favorite bookstore resides in Arizona: Changing Hands. It's a charming little boutiquey second hand bookstore loaded with beautiful, intricate trinkets strategically placed to ignite any retail therapy that you may need. The cook book section is sprinkled with unique little kitchen-gadgets and the children's section is dusted with glittery fairy-wear so that little girls… Continue reading Vegan Cornbread Pancakes w/Roasted Blueberry Syrup

Strawberry Rhubarb Honey Jam

Confession: I'm a recovering grocerholic.  Meaning: I'm learning how to control my grocery shopping addiction.  My former self would buy so many groceries that a few days after buying heaps of glorious, brightly colored, organic produce I would experience large bouts of anxiety due to the reckless abandonment that I was inflicting on my produce. … Continue reading Strawberry Rhubarb Honey Jam
