Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

This gluten free chocolate chip cookies recipe is quick, easy and delicious. Enjoy! A few weeks ago I bought a bag of chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour on a total whim, and the dreary weather this past weekend finally inspired me to try it out! I decided to bust out my neglected coconut oil for the occasion as well. Don’t let Continue Reading …

Chunky Turkey and Vegetable Soup Recipe

Good morning! I came up with another fun dinner creation last night to welcome Matt home from his work trip. Chunky Turkey and Vegetable Soup! This meal was another big hit with Matt — especially when a little hot sauce was added to the mix. It was almost a cross between chili and soup — very flavorful and satisfying! We both loved it.

My Most Favorite Salad Ever

We had one of my favorite things ever for dinner the other night — taco salad! My mom has been making this salad for us for as long as I can remember. It’s not exactly healthy (cheese and corn chips are involved), but it’s delicious and has always been one of my absolute favorites. Getting kids to eat salad/veggies in any form is Continue Reading …

“Cheesy” Vegan Mushroom Quinoa

I came up with a delicious new vegan creation over the weekend! I was craving my Comforting Pumpkin Quinoa and started to make that, but, as I began to cook, I decided I wanted something more like my “Cheesy” Coconut Sautéed Chickpeas and Kale (SO good). It worked out well since I’m generally incapable of following a recipe exactly, Continue Reading …

I’m so classy.) My new favorite smoothie? A hidden veggie Cherry Lemon Smoothie. You’ve got your protein (milk and yogurt), veggies Continue Reading …

Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin Recipe

One of the resounding favorites (among both kids AND adults) from the kid’s cooking classes we taught last week was a Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin. It was so good, juicy, and flavorful — I just have to share the recipe.  Pork tenderloin is one of my dinner favorites, but I don’t like buying the pre-marinated tenderloins because Continue Reading …

Whole Wheat Zesty Lemon Zucchini Muffins

Friends, I’m about to make a very bold statement. I think these are the best muffins I’ve EVER made. I’m serious. And as you know from my recipe page… I make a lot of muffins. I got an enormous bag of zucchini and squash fresh from a coworker’s garden the other day and have been slowly working my way through it. Finally, I Continue Reading …
