Sweet Potato Brownies with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

It's 5:45 am and I'm revitalizing myself with a SECOND round of coffee.  Please tell me that I'm not the only one who comatose-ly wakes up in the middle of the night to drink water only to have their brain check in mid-gulp to remind them of all the things that they have to do… Continue reading Sweet Potato Brownies with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

This sticky ginger cake is absolutely incredible!  It's like a Christmas gingerbread cookie brought to life in the summer.  Taking a bite of it elucidates memories of past Christmases.  Subtle hints of lemon remind me of summer nights cooled down with sweet iced tea.  The coconut adds a sweet nutty flavor.  The whole thing is… Continue reading Ginger Cake with a Lemon Coconut Glaze

I've been limiting my sugar intake and I've noticed… Continue reading Gluten-Free Vegan Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes

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

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.
