Gluten-Free Banana Nut Muffins

There were three very sad, brown-spotted bananas on my counter this morning. So I decided to make these gluten-free banana nut muffins for breakfast. Plus, I’m a firm believer that when the temperature dips below freezing (say, one degree F) … Continue reading

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier in the new year. I still have double chocolate chunk cookies every other day and make my weekly bakery trips, but at least once a week, … Continue reading

Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies

I love holiday eating as much (maybe more) than the next person, but there comes a time when my stomach/mind/body needs a break. Cue: these banana bread breakfast cookies. They’re vegan AND gluten-free, they taste great, and they don’t make … Continue reading

Carrot, Grapefruit and Ginger Juice

It’s starting to feel like winter outside, so it’s time to amp up the Vitamin C and A. I’ve actually been feeling healthier this year (aside from seasonal allergies), but it never hurts to boost your reserves ahead of cold … Continue reading

Over the weekend, I started craving something healthy-ish for breakfast. I usually make a big brunch on Sunday with pancakes, eggs, and bacon, but I was coming off a week of vacation where I basically ate hot dogs and nonstop … Continue reading

Zucchini Tart with Basil Ricotta Filling

Tarts with puff pastry are one of my favorite things to make. They look super impressive and are deceptively easy. I guess you could make your own puff pastry from scratch, but unless I’m making croissants or pain au chocolat, … Continue reading

Watermelon, Cucumber, and Mint Salad

This is the most refreshing summer salad. I will not take any other nominations. The inspiration for this salad came to me partly due to the abundance of fresh mint in my garden, and partly because it’s so hot in … Continue reading

Halloumi, Date, and Orange Salad

I love Middle Eastern food. I think I always have, but my experiences traveling and living abroad increased my appreciation of it. In the town I lived in in France, there was a Middle Eastern bakery and tea shop that … Continue reading

PB and Jam Oats

My breakfasts during quarantine have been…how do I say…eclectic. One day I’m eating an everything bagel with avocado, the next I’m having chocolate covered doughnuts. In a way, that’s really good because it breaks me out of my usual routine. … Continue reading

Kale Sweet Potato Lentil Stew

This soup is a product of St. Louis weather being…well…crazy. Last week it snowed (I think? It’s been a blur), and this week it’s 60-70 degrees and sunny. I guess I should expect this, as I’ve lived in St. Louis … Continue reading
