Baked PB&J Oatmeal Parfaits

I love oatmeal, and try to eat it as often as I can, but it can get boring fast (side note: why does pizza never get boring?!?) I’m always adding new things to my oats, and have eaten them every way you can imagine: steel cut, rolled, combination, with chocolate, nuts, yogurt. But still, I’ll [...]

Vegan Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles

If you’re regularly scheduled brunches have been cut short, first due to a global pandemic, and then because you’re snowed in, then you might need to improvise. I mean, sure. You can just eat whatever you might normally eat for breakfast and skip brunch altogether. But is that ever fun? Nah. Since one of my [...]

Coconut Oat Pancakes

When you think of pancakes, the first thing that comes to mind is likely a towering stack of fluffy pancakes drowning in butter and maple syrup. Nothing wrong with that if you’re looking to indulge at breakfast. If you don’t want to indulge, you go for something more like these hearty vegan pancakes filled with [...]

Salted Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

I love oatmeal, especially in the winter, and especially if it’s the baked variety. I make it often, but like to change it up a bit. Fruit is a fave, but this time, I thought I’d try something different for a treat — peanut butter and crunchy sea salt, with a bit of chocolate. The chocolate [...]

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

They were one of the most popular items on the menu even. While the cookie bars themselves were great, the combination of the [...]

Chocolate Coconut Baked Oatmeal

When the weather gets cooler, oatmeal becomes more of a thing in my life. Not gonna lie, sometimes it’s instant, but I love a good baked oatmeal, especially when it is loaded with chocolate. Oatmeal gets a bad rep (although I tend to like it any way you make it) but there’s more to it [...]

Coconut Bacon

Okay, so I haven’t eaten bacon in years. It was never a favorite of mine anyway, but once in awhile I think about how bacon can add a lot of salty, smokiness to things like salads or sandwiches. So when the mood strikes, I make coconut bacon, which in my opinion tastes like bacon. It [...]

Grand Marnier Sour Cherry Sauce

I love sour cherries, but they are hard to find. A couple weeks ago I went to Northern Michigan with my family, and was lucky enough to pick up a few quarts at a farmer’s market. I froze them, and immediately started dreaming up ways to use them all.   My first thought was jam. [...]
