I have been so excited to have it on my shelf! Today I’m sharing Kelly’s crazy delicious recipe for Quinoa, Grapefruit and Golden Beet Salad from her […]

Breakfast Pink Sunrise Strawberry Smoothie

This healthy, vibrant strawberry smoothie is perfect for breakfast! Called “Pink Sunrise” it will brighten up your morning and get it off to a good start! I’ve never been one to apologize for being absent over here on the blog. Life happens and sometimes blogging has to wait a bit. But I somehow can’t believe it’s been six weeks or so since I last shared a recipe. That seems like forever in blog years! To […]

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola

We’ve been on a granola kick lately. My daughters have discovered that they love it more than anything else on top of tangy yogurt or in a bowl with a bit of milk. I’m more for grabbing a handful here and there for a little snack, or dipping apples in almond butter and then coating them in granola. A few years ago I started making Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola. I was amazed how quickly that […]

Curried Vegan Pumpkin Pie (Gluten-Free)

Pumpkin pie lovers fall into two (maybe three) camps – purists and adventurists. At least that’s the case in my family. My husband was abhorred by the idea of changing up the yearly pumpkin pie(s) until I started baking and he started tasting. We used almost-burnt caramel as a base one year. Another the pie was topped with streusel (and made with caramel). Another pie was a Thanksgiving Two-fer ala Dorie Greenspan. (Think: double layers […]

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

The weather the last few days has been so gorgeous – incredibly chilly, but gorgeous. And this morning…it snowed! I’m totally NOT ready for it to be winter yet. Our trees have almost lost all of their leaves (sniff, sniff) and we’ve turned on the heat. The cold weather clothes are now out of storage and in our closets and drawers. And now we wait for the snow. It feels a little strange to be […]

Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower Couscous

Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower Couscous

One of my favorite new-to-me food trends this year has been cauliflower rice or couscous. I am 100% a fan. I started making this Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower Couscous in the summer and I haven’t stopped! We LOVE it. Like a whole bunch. Each time I give it a new little twist depending on what I have hanging out on the counter or in my fridge. It might be spinach or chard, it could be summer […]

Cranberry Pear Acai Bowl

Fall is just flying by. How is it already nearly the end of the month?! Our new place has so many windows and our yard and our neighbors’ yards have so many trees. I’m sitting in my office now admiring the different fall colors I see out my window. As much as I love warm weather, I still think fall steals my heart. The colors alone! We’ve been discussing the changing seasons with our kids […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

Pumpkin Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

When I was growing up, we had this step-by-step cookbook that I loved to look at. By the time I was 8 or 9 years old, I was teaching myself how to cook. I was an avid reader anyway, and cookbooks were as intriguing to me as The Baby-Sitters Club series. I devoured both as quickly as I could. One of our favorite recipes was for Oatmeal Molasses Cookies. That cookbook, sadly, is long gone, […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Portobello Fajitas

Gluten-Free Vegan Portobello Fajitas with Bell Peppers

Fajitas have long been a favorite dinner of mine. My mom used to make them several times a year when I was growing up and we always looked forward to Fajita Night. There’s just something wonderful about the sizzling hot filling rolled into a soft tortilla with an array of favorite toppings. It had been awhile since I made fajitas for my little family. McCormick has come out with new gluten-free seasoning mixes and I was […]

October is my favorite month. I know I’m not alone in that sentiment – what’s not to love? Gorgeous fall colors, beautiful weather, and a bountiful harvest. It doesn’t get any better! I spent last week in The Bay Area (more on that later!) and really enjoyed experiencing a week of California-style October weather and sun. It was marvelous! Today I’m sharing a vibrant, fresh Fall Frisee Salad made with colorful, healthy ingredients that can […]
