When I eat burgers, I usually just put them on a plate and use a knife and a fork. This bunless burger “sandwich” is another way to enjoy meat, cheese and veggie layers without bread. It’s admittedly more fun than using knife and a fork, and is always a hit with kids, who find the “meat bun” funny – and fun.
Ice cream. My absolute favorite guilty pleasure. There’s literally nothing better than creamy delicious ice cream, but when it’s homemade, ohh is it just heavenly! Ice cream is one of those desserts I try to eat sparingly (keyword here being “try”), but this recipe is one you can actually feel GOOD about eating! Not only are […]
Raise your hand if you A) are from the Midwest, B) have ever been to a church or community potluck, or C) have eaten at your grandmother’s table.
Hand raised on all three.
If you answered yes on any one of these, you’ve likely experienced a 7-layer salad. Say hello to its vegan cousin.
This recipe was actually a reader request, and seeing as I just mastered Vegan Mayonnaise and Coconut Bacon (and Eggplant Bacon), I figured it was perfect timing.
This post was created in partnership with ALDI. All opinions are our own. “Are you considering becoming a creative person? Too late, you already are one. If you’re alive, you’re a creative person.” -Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic When I was in kindergarten, I entered a coloring contest. It was about eating healthy foods. Since it was the 1980s, the approach at the time was very food pyramid-centric. I drew a bunch of different “healthy” foods that I knew of in different categories: vegetables, dairy, meats, and so forth. My drawing ended up winning the kindergarten division, and it was displayed for all the school to see. The thing was, I was pretty uninspired with the whole thing. I drew it because it was an assignment. I did not feel creative about it in the least. The food pyramid seemed like a limiting set of rules set forth by the school and government. Cooking and eating healthy foods in my mind was B-O-R-I-N-G. To this day, I have the same feeling about programs that try to tell me how to eat healthy. Lists and check boxes don’t work for me. What does work? Creative freedom. I love eating beautiful, colorful, delicious food. […]
We’ve finally installed our new dishwasher! Hurrah! We’ve only had it for a few days, and it has genuinely changed my life already. Cooking new recipes every day, I create a lot of dirty dishes, and it’s so nice to be able to throw them straight in the dishwasher rather than letting them pile up by […]
This recipe is for the carb and cracker lover who is ready to up their game and make their own at home. (Trust me. It’s not as scary as it sounds.)
Or, if you ever make your own almond milk, you likely have leftover pulp! You can put it to good use in these crackers. (Yet another reason to try this recipe.)
What I’m saying is: These delicious crackers make excellent use of ingredients you likely have in your pantry right now.
(And if you happen to end up with some leftover corned beef after today, I’ve got you covered for that with Low-Carb Corned Beef Recipes; check it out!)
This is one of those recipes that began as one thing and became another. Prompted by a pound of green lentils that needed using, I started off with the intention of making a big pot of curried green lentil soup. As it was cooking I found myself hesitant to add more liquid; I kept thinking about…
Blueberry muffins. There is seriously nothing more comforting than a sweet fluffy blueberry muffin with your morning cup of coffee to start off the day and this recipe is legit a total winner! These perfectly moist, lightly sweetened lemon blueberry muffins are made with almond flour, Greek yogurt and sweetened with a little honey (zero […]
