Homemade Twix Bars | Vegan, Gluten-Free

Twix Bars | Vegan, Gluten-Free

In the spirit of Halloween, today's recipe is a super-decadent, vegan, and gluten-free version of my favorite childhood candy bar: twix! Anything with caramel is a win in my book, but there's something extra special about that particular combination. The buttery shortbread layered with caramel and coated in rich, creamy chocolate? Make it stop. There are plenty of great vegan and gluten-free twix bar recipes out there, but trust me when I tell you that this one is different. Most require … [Read more...]

Cheesy Farro Bake with Mushrooms, Tomatoes & Shallots

Cheesy Farro Bake with Mushrooms, Tomatoes and Shallots

Have you ever been cruising along in life thinking everything was generally fine yet experiencing a nagging edginess as if your happy, go-lucky mojo had gone awry? Have you ever retroactively identified that you were stressed once the stressor was removed? This might sound like the makings of a snazzy infomercial for a magical stress-relieving pill; however, I promise you it's not. Rather, it's a realization I had yesterday night. Way back in early September, I mentioned that our kitchen … [Read more...]

Pumpkin & Cranberry Granola Bars

Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola Bars

Sweet. Chewy. Spiced. Pumpkin-y. Seeded. Addictive. De.li.cious. These Pumpkin & Cranberry Granola Bars have a whole lot of wonder about them, and I've fallen for them bite after spice-filled bite. To be honest, I initially thought this recipe was a flop. Not because of flavor, but because the pumpkin purée created a softer granola bar, and I had been hoping for a firmer, denser bar. Well, it appears that the granola bar's and my wires were crossed, because a … [Read more...]

Raw Apple-Cinnamon & Chia Breakfast Bowl

Raw Apple-Cinnamon Chia Breakfast Bowl

What do you get when you combine apples, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chia seeds? A big bowl of breakfast wonder. While making this apple pie a few weeks back, I fell head-over-heels for the raw apple filling. It's cinnamony, sweetened with dates, and the apples maintain their crispness in the most perfect way. Not too long after posting that recipe, I came up with a way to repurpose the pie filling as the focal point in this delicious breakfast bowl. Take a gander... Although … [Read more...]

Yoga Journal 1-Year Subscription Giveaway

Yoga Journal November

Yoga is a very important part of my life, and I love it just as much as I love cooking. I've been practicing yoga on and off since I was 17 years old (i.e., way back when in 2000). Throughout the years, I've taken several breaks from my practice; however, no matter how long I step away from it, I always find my way back. Yoga feels like home; a home within myself, my mind, my heart, and my soul. When I regularly flow, grow, and let-go on my mat, I find new space from within. A space that … [Read more...]

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust | Vegan & Gluten-Free

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust

Sweet potato, sweet potahto. No matter your choice of pronunciation, sweet potatoes speak our bodies' health language. They're rich in Vitamins A, C, and B6, and packed with fiber, manganese, and potassium. Plus, they're absolutely delicious and rock that vivacious orange hue year-round. And who doesn't get down with vitamin-rich vivaciousness? Over the last few years, the trend in pizza making has been to use veggies (e.g., cauliflower) and other unexpected ingredients (e.g., quinoa) as the … [Read more...]

Giant Blueberry Skillet Pancake | Vegan & Gluten-Free

Giant Blueberry Skillet Pancake

I love pancakes, but I don't make them too often simply because they require quite a bit of time standing over the stove. Pour. Wait. Flip. Wait. Repeat. Pour. Wait. Flip. Wait. Repeat. A few weekends ago, Dan and I were both craving sweet blueberry pancakes, so I figured I'd attempt to bake one gigantic pancake in our cast iron skillet in hopes of allowing for more leisurely coffee drinking time and less kitchen time. Well, this blueberry pancake recipe is easy … [Read more...]

Chocolate-Pumpkin Overnight Oats

Chocolate-Pumpkin Overnight Oats

I'm currently on an undeniable overnight oats kick, just as I was when I posted this recipe. Dan can confirm that when I find something I love to eat, I will eat it nearly every day for an extended period of time. Take zucchini noodles, for example. If you were to ask Dan how often I ate big bowls of zucchini noodles this past August, he would probably tell you that I ate them almost every night. And he would be correct. I'm a repeat-meal offender, what can I say? Overnight oats are the … [Read more...]
