Coconut is one of the most versatile, amazing ingredients ever. (Seriously.)…
What? Wait WHAT, are you adding to those muffins?!
Why yes, honey, yes it is, I replied to my hubby with a smile one day as I was caught red-handed. (Haha, literally, I guess, since I’m always red after handling beets. Corny joke, sorry.)…
I love finding joy in each of the four seasons.
Spring, summer, and fall are more obvious: warmer, longer days means more time spent outside in the fresh air.
Winter, however, can be harder….
Homemade granola is one of my favorite weekday morning breakfasts that always feels like a treat.
No matter what kind of granola you make, homemade is so much better than anything you can buy at the store, plus, it’s the sort of thing that you just feel healthy eating….
One thing about myself that I’m always trying to improve is being able to live in the moment.
There’s always always some kind of work to do (that’s the nature of life!), and I’m often so consumed by it that I don’t take time for life’s little pleasures….
I have a real thing for cold desserts in winter.
I’ll literally go months without so much as a spoonful of ice cream and then find myself craving it in the middle of January….
When it comes to eating healthy, homemade meals are the way to go.
But eating at home requires planning, as well as a method to get it all done. Not to mention lots of motivation to want to do it because the task of menu planning, shopping, meal prep, and cooking for three meals a day (plus snacks) for however many people you have to feed is almost another part-time job!…
Sometimes dessert just calls for a whipped cream-like topping.
If you don’t eat dairy, regular whipped cream is out. Coconut “whipped cream” is pretty common, but what if you want something just a little different? (I love coconut as much as the next girl – probably more, actually – but I have to admit, even I can get a little sick of it.)…
Despite its simplicity, there is something completely indulgent about classic Chocolate Custard.
(Especially when it’s topped with a dollop of whipped cream or coconut “whipped cream”!)…
It seems like at any given time I have at least a couple very ripe bananas sitting on my counter….
