One Bowl Carrot Apple Muffins (Vegan + GF)

Easy, wholesome Carrot Walnut Muffins! Just ONE bowl required, #vegan #glutenfree

We recently took a trip to Portland, Oregon where I visited several of our favorite bakeries and coffee shops. Perhaps my favorite is Crema - home of the biggest, fluffiest, most perfectly sweet zucchini muffin I’ve ever had.

Since I’ve already mastered the art of the Gluten Free Zucchini Cake (<- OMG have you tried it yet?), I wanted to venture into the land of carrot cake. This recipe would certainly work as a cake, but I wanted to go the  healthier route that didn’t require frosting.

Muffin tin, loaf pan, cake pan: Whatever route you choose this One Bowl, Vegan, Gluten Free recipe is going to blow you away! I literally couldn’t stop eating these (always a good sign).

Creamy Vegan Lemon Asparagus Pasta

I think you become an adult when you start making your own pasta sauce. Oh, and paying your own bills. That's also important. I don't remember exactly this happened for me, but it was one of the best decisions I've made in the kitchen. I used to live on jarred pasta sauces (and vending machine food) in my college years, so I was elated and pleasantly surprised to learn how easy it is to make it ...

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Blizzards

To blizzard or not to blizzard, that is not the question. The question is: Which flavor blizzard to make?

A ton of you banana lovers spoke up, but you couldn't drown out the cries of the chocolate lovers. So, chocolate it was! But not to worry because I also made a banana ... Read More →

My Favorite Vegan Pizza

Ahh, pizza night. A thing to be cherished. Around our house we eat pizza at least once a week.
