Coconut and Roasted Rhubarb Smoothie

Coconut and Roasted Rhubarb Smoothie- A perfect sweet summertime smoothie, with roasted rhubarb and plenty of coconut!

Can you believe I haven’t really worked with rhubarb much until just this year (outside of the usual strawberry rhubarb crisp)? It’s always been one of those fruits that baffle me because you can’t really eat it on its own and it usually needs to be paired with something else to bring out the real taste and sweetness. For my first round of experimenting with rhubarb, I went with a sweet roasted rhubarb smoothie, (more…)

Chocolate Granola Pancakes

A breakfast classic gets a crunchy twist, with cocoa powder and a hefty dose of granola in these vegan chocolate granola pancakes!

How are you recovering after that long, gorgeous weekend we had? All I know is that yesterday felt like Monday and I couldn’t be happier that it’s already Wednesday.  I spent the past weekend baking (2 fails, 1 success), soaking up the sun in a beer garden, and making (more…)

Maple Bourbon Candied Pecans

Bourbon Maple Candied Pecans- The perfect topping for ice cream, oatmeal, and everything in between! Candied pecans with a perfect sweet salty mix, with a touch of bourbon.

These bourbon roasted pecans are singlehandedly one of my favorite things I’ve made in..oh the last year? I helped Kate from Cookie and Kate test a few recipes from her cookbook (!!) and this pecan recipe one one of my favorites.  It’s a seemingly unassuming recipe, starting with a healthy dose of maple syrup and ending with a roast to perfection in the oven. Each time I’ve made these sweet bourbon roasted pecans (more…)

Vegan Herb and Onion Bagels

Vegan Herb and Onion Bagels- Make brunch even better with a batch of homemade herb and onion bagels!

Would you believe me if I told you I’ve never made homemade vegan bagels before? While it’s bee on my ‘to bake’ list for forever, I just never got around to the process of making onion bagels until this past weekend. Between the kneading, rising, and boiling process, some people might think it takes too much time, but I find it downright meditative. Forcing myself to commit to one activity for an entire afternoon has proven to be an exercise in patience, especially since I know one wrong move or trying to juggle too many cooking projects at once could (more…)

Vegan Strawberry Curd

Vegan Strawberry Curd- A sweet and creamy vegan strawberry curd, using the best spring produce!

Back in action and it feels SO good! After traveling pretty consistently for the last month or two, I’m home for the summer (at least for now) and I’m 100% ok with it. Although I love love love traveling, sometimes it feels great to just be home and be able to spend time with our local friends or have a few lazy weekends at (more…)

Olive Oil Vegan Biscuits

Olive Oil Vegan Biscuits- The best homemade vegan biscuits, made with olive oil and not vegan butter, creating the flakiest and fluffiest vegan biscuits!

I can honestly say that these olive oil vegan biscuits are one of the recipes that I’ve been MOST excited about in the last few weeks. Sometimes I get caught up in making crazy desserts that incorporate a million different things or techniques. when really all I want on a Saturday morning is a good ol’ biscuit slathered with jelly. These vegan biscuits were born out of the need for a biscuit that could be thrown together in time for breakfast, but don’t use gobs of vegan butter or coconut oil. (more…)
