Mediterranean Avocado Toast

I’m not gonna lie — I love avocado toast. There are just so many different ways you can eat it, that it’s pretty hard to get tired of it. You can change bread, toppings, seasonings. As long as there’s creamy avocado involved it works. In this case, I used this bread, and then smashed the avocado [...]

Pan Fried Dumplings with Chili Crunch

I try to plan meals, but it doesn’t always work out the way I think it will. Something always comes up, changing my plans, and leaving me with odd and end ingredients that I don’t know what to do with. Like in this case, I had a head of cabbage, a zucchini, some wonton wrappers, [...]

Smashed Avocado Toast with Tuna

I have a love/hate relationship with avocados. One one hand, they are delicious and creamy, and nutritious. Adding avocado is an easy way to add healthy fat to a salad or wrap. If you only eat avocados in a restaurant, you may not ever get what the problem with them is. But, I can guarantee [...]

Chocolate Almond Smoothie Bombs

I bought some protein powder  for a quick filling snack when I don’t have time for much else. I found that it doesn’t taste bad necessarily, but mixed with just almond milk, it’s kind of boring. So I started trying different ways to liven it up, and one of the ways I found was to [...]

The Best Garlic Bread

Garlic bread is something a lot of people don’t need a recipe for. Either because they just buy the frozen kind, or sprinkle some garlic salt on toast. I’m not judging — I’ve never had garlic bread that I didn’t like. But, there’s garlic flavored bread, and then there’s the kind made with actual garlic. It [...]

Coconut and Carrot Cake Energy Bites

I work best in the early morning, and by the afternoon, I’m usually ready for a nap. When a nap is not in order, a healthy and energizing snack will usually do the trick. Like these easy to make carrot cake energy bites. I have lots of different snack foods available for this purpose, some [...]

Gluten-Free Hazelnut Chocolat Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don’t seek out gluten-free cookies, but I do seek out easy and healthy cookie recipes, which is what this recipe is. Not only is it among the easiest recipes, it’s also seriously good. If you’re looking for the perfect Paleo cookie recipe, this is it. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I would like [...]

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. [...]

Banana Birthday Cake Ice Cream

When I was a kid, my favorite cake was the rainbow chip kind. It was just sprinkles in the boxed cake mix, but I loved it. I know now that it’s all the same, and that you can’t really taste the sprinkles that are baked in the cake (although, full disclosure: I don’t know when [...]
