Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings with Spicy Garlic Sauce

By |January 24th, 2017|All Recipes, Appetizers, Dinner, Gluten Free|

A couple of weeks ago I went through a phase where all I wanted was a spicy batch of buffalo wings. In Ohio there is no shortage of wings, but I didn't want something that was battered and deep fried. Wings are rich enough as is without adding breading and oil. I tried to bury [...]

Lentil Chickpea Salad

I have a confession...I love Costco. Who doesn't? What's not to love? When I see a great deal, I can't turn it down, hence the reason there is a 10 pound bag of lentils in my pantry. It went unopened for about 2 weeks and then I panicked. What am I going to do with [...]

Can you really ever have too many chili recipes? The answer is no. I love beer chili. It makes an already hearty chili even heartier. This recipe is similar to my signature chili recipe, but with MORE BEER and MORE MEAT! My preferred beer of choice if I'm going to make a chili is an [...]

Vegan Pumpkin Bread

By |October 20th, 2015|All Recipes, Party Food, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Vegan pumpkin bread, in my opinion, is just as tasty, if not better than pumpkin bread made with butter and eggs. It's certainly lighter and fluffier while still being dense and hearty. Spread some hazelnut spread on a slice, or drizzle the entire loaf with a spiced glaze and you're good to go! Add some [...]
