Tofu Noodle Bowl with Pepper Sauce

 I was feeling adventurous today so I tried tofu. I have only cooked with tofu once before and that was years ago. I knew nothing about how to cook it then. This dish is so full of flavor and is amazing!  I’m happy to say that this meal is easy to […]

Chocolate Blueberry Oats

 You know those days when you just need chocolate for breakfast? Today was that day for me so I decided to make chocolate oatmeal. I had lots of blueberries, so I combined them with the oats and it is amazing! It’s so simple too. First you cook down some blueberries […]


 I decided to make Ratatouille for the first time. It is fairly simple to make and it’s visually appealing. The addition of herbs de Provence makes this dish in my opinion.   As you can see, the vegetables are colorful and beautiful. Mix together the sauce and line the dish […]

Roasted Garlic & Butternut Squash Sauce

 I was wanting to try something different and I heard about others using butternut squash for sauces. So after reading and trying MANY different recipes, I came up with this version. I used a whole bulb of roasted garlic in it because it adds a wonderful nutty taste to it. […]

Raw Carrot Cake

 With being gluten-free and vegan, I needed to come up with a raw version of my favorite dessert. There’s something about carrot cake that’s so satisfying. Pineapple is my secret ingredient in this recipe. You could add chopped nuts or raisins to the cake portion after it is blended. After […]

Tumeric Cauliflower Soup

 It was a rainy day today and I was craving cauliflower soup. When I think of cauliflower soup, I think of comfort and warmth. This soup is full of rich Indian spices without the heat. You could easily add cayenne or chili powder to make it spicy. I usually love […]

Piña Colada Nice Cream

 Nothing says summer more than Piña Coladas! Instead of having it as a drink, I decided to make it into a nice cream! I love that it’s dairy-free yet so creamy. Start by hollowing out the pineapple and reserving the fruit. After blending everything together, put it in your ice […]

Zucchini Salad

 Who else enjoys having a plate full of greens for lunch? I love the taste and texture of raw zucchini so I decided to make that the base of my salad rather than lettuce. What’s even better is how fast it is to make it; which is ideal for busy […]

Chickpea & Avocado Lettuce Wraps

 Today was one of those days where I was wanting something filling for lunch. Seeing I had chickpeas and an avocado, I decided to combine it and it was delicious!   Smash together the chickpeas and avocado. If you like it creamier, put it into the food processor. The link […]

Hasselback Potatoes

 Tonight I decided I wanted something that would fill me up and potatoes usually do. I personally think that there is nothing wrong with eating potatoes. They have such a bad rap, but if you eat them in moderation like everything else, there’s nothing wrong with them. Getting back to […]
