Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

So, I did a juice cleanse earlier this week.  And now I’m craving cookies.  Cookies, cookies, cookies. That’s how it’s supposed to work, right? Well, since these cookies have peanut butter and banana in them, maybe that can at least partially count as health food.  ;)

Asparagus-Spinach Pesto Pasta with Blackened Shrimp

I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days.  Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government.  Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer...

Vegan Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

This past Friday night was meant for celebrating. The weather was sit-out-on-the-deck-in-the-cool-evening-breeze perfection.  Friends gathered from all around the city with chips and salsa and salads and popcorn and laughter and stories to share.  The fire pit was aflame.  The candles were lit on this (gluten free and vegan) carrot...

3-Ingredient Coconut Oil Biscuits

So, my mom just bought her first jar of coconut oil this month, and I have had a blast (a little too enthusiastically) explaining the hundreds of ways that you can use it.  I mean, just yesterday we had a very deep conversation about oil pulling as I was...

How To Make Self Rising Flour

I’ve always said that I like a good balance of cooking and baking in my life.  But man oh man, somehow I have gotten on a mega baking kick lately.  And since I tend to prefer savory to sweet, the object of my affection as of late has been...

The Friday Five

Happy day, friends! I hope this finds you well, wherever you may be. Thankfully, life seems well here too.  This week has been kind of like a warm cozy blanket of introvertedness around here.  I’ve had a few lunches and coffee dates and impromptu dinners with friends here and...
