Easy Baba Ganoush

By |April 5th, 2017|All Recipes, Dietary Restrictions, Gluten Free, Snacks, Vegan, Vegetarian|

So...I love baba ganoush. It's easily in my top 5 of favorite foods. I will order it any day, any time that I see it on a menu. I will drive miles to get it. There is a restaurant local to me that has baba ganoush. It is so delicious, but it costs me SEVEN [...]

Honey Walnut Fig Cheeseball

By |January 31st, 2017|All Recipes, Appetizers, Party Food, Snacks, Vegetarian|

I think this may be my new favorite party dish. Cheeseballs are so easy to make and are my go-to appetizer for the holidays and parties. I wanted to make a quick snack to take to a family dinner last night and was short on time. I had crackers and cream cheese in the fridge, [...]

Best Breakfast Smoothie

By |January 24th, 2017|All Recipes, Breakfast, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Smoothies are so good for breakfast. If you're in a hurry all the time, like me, something as simple as a smoothie can keep you from going without breakfast on days where you hit snooze one (or two) too many times. This particular smoothie was inspired by ingredients that I had in my home and [...]

If you want comfort food, you've come to the right place. I made pumpkin mac and cheese last night for a family dinner and it was all I'd hoped for and more. Penne pasta drowned in a rich pumpkin cheese sauce. I never said it is good for you, but you will be nice and [...]

Bark is one of the easiest sweet treats you can make. All you need is a bowl, a spoon, a mallet and a microwave and you can prepare a delicious dessert in about 10 minutes. My cinnamon ginger bark was inspired by a recipe I saw on Facebook for Oreo bark. It uses basically the [...]

Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere! I'm not the typical pumpkin fan. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice lattes (gasp), but I do like my pumpkin savory. This Pumpkin Soup recipe is adapted from a recipe I found online. It's hearty, smooth, and creamy. It really hits the spot on a chilly fall [...]

5 Minute Taco Dip

By |July 7th, 2016|All Recipes, Appetizers, Party Food, Snacks, Vegetarian|

Taco dip! This recipe is the fastest recipe to make and is a crowd-pleaser every time. It is my go-to appetizer for a large crowd. I've never had anyone tell me they don't like this taco dip. All you need is 5 or 6 ingredients and 5 minutes! I serve this dip cold so no [...]

Feels good to be posting again! I haven't posted for a few months because I've been traveling! I love to cook, I love my dogs, I love my husband and other human family, and I LOVE TO TRAVEL! Since my last post I've gone to Aruba and on a Western Caribbean cruise that docked out [...]

I needed the perfect vegan gravy to top my Vegan Holiday Stuff and this recipe did the trick! This gravy is so rich and flavorful that no one will even know it contains no animal products unless they ask for the recipe (which they might!). If you have vegan or vegetarian guests at your holiday [...]

I wanted to experiment with some recipes I've never made before. I love roasted Brussels sprouts and wanted to incorporate some fall flavors. So, I roasted [...]
