Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins with Spelt {vegan}

I’m going to stop making zucchini and banana breads soon, I promise. (Maybe? They’re so good!) For now, I’m on a late-summer bender – because it’s Texas, and zucchini is still sprouting up as if the fall equinox never happened. Believe me, I’m ready to move on to pumpkin and pecans, but zucchini is here, […]

Olive Tapenade

We all have one: that food we just don’t like. Something we simply can’t tolerate — an ingredient that can make a whole pot of soup inedible, a whole pizza flavored with that certain undesirable something. I’ve noticed that while many people are honest about things like just not liking onions, or hating the texture […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Bars (Vegan, GF)

There’s something really special about finding someone who has the same eating preferences and habits as you do. A person who indulges in the same types of foods, who likes to eat at the same restaurants. Someone you can trust to make you just the dinner you’re in the mood for when you get home […]

Very Chewy Triple Chocolate Cookies (GF!!)

In the words of my old roommate, Hoy hoy! (It’s like “hello,” but more…jolly.) I’m writing this post from the midst of a storm of activity.

Asian-Style Fried Quinoa with Vegetables (GF)

A friend, sick of throwing leftovers in the trash and eating out every night, asked me for some tips on cooking healthful, delicious dinners for one without wasting a ton of food (and time). My advice is to steer away from big pots or large roasts and aim to fill the fridge with lots of […]

Simple Homemade Almond Milk (Vegan, GF)

So, here’s something I feel like I should share: when writing blog posts, it’s easy for me to tell flat out lies. It’s not intentional, it’s usually not about something that even matters, and it has more to do with tone and voice than with content. I’m not saying I find it easy to lie […]

Honey-Ginger Glazed Carrots

This recipe is for the procrastinators among us. I don’t know them. You don’t know them. But they’re living among us as. Telling themselves they’ll finish in time. Watching Breaking Bad instead. They live with their secret shame. Since I’m sure you and I are stand-up citizens and have had our Christmas potluck contributions in […]

Pecan Pie Date Bars (No-bake, GF, Vegan)

Here’s a little thing I need to confess. For a while, I harbored bad feelings towards the gluten-free community. I guess I just thought it was really suspicious that all of a sudden everyone and their grandma was allergic to gluten. And I was all, okay, some people are obviously explosively allergic, like the way […]
