Healthy Broccoli Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

This is my interpretation of the classic broccoli salad - but there's no mayonnaise in this version! Not that I have anything against mayo, (I love homemade mayo) but I've never cared for it as a salad dressing. However, I do like things creamy as a general rule, so I used avocado to make this deliciously creamy dressing. I've been ...

Savory Vegan Cashew Cream Sauce

If you're in need of a good dairy free cream sauce, today's your lucky day! But even if you're not dairy free, hang with me for a moment to revel in the lusciousness of this incredible sauce. When I posted my family's special occasion recipe for Life Changing Rosemary Mushroom Cream Sauce around the holidays, I received lots of requests ...

No Bake Fudge Frosted Brownies

I teased you a while back with a picture of these right around Christmas time, and I fully intended to get you the recipe right away. But... I got distracted with these Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins and then there was some Chocolate Fudge Skillet Cake. And somehow 10 weeks flew by, so you'll have to accept my full apologies for ...

Golden Milk Tropical Turmeric Smoothie

I've been into all things tropical during the last couple months. I think it's because winter is starting to feel extra long, and I just can't wait to feel the warm sun on my face again! I thought I might get a little reprieve when I went to California to work for a week, but they had unusually cold weather, ...

Mango Lime Green Smoothie

It's been a while since I stumbled across a new green smoothie combo that I just couldn't stop drinking. But finally I have another great one for you! It's filled with tropical ingredients which is always a bonus about this time of the year, and it's incredibly refreshing, with a little zip from fresh lime. I've been using frozen mango ...

Cranberry Orange Smoothie Bowl

I first made my Vitamin C Booster Cranberry Orange Smoothie 3 years ago, and I been making it nonstop ever since. But sometimes I'm more in the mood to eat something while at the same time craving fresh flavors. Whenever that mood strikes, I always opt for a smoothie bowl. So I've altered one of my favorite smoothies of all ...

Tropical Spinach Salad with Creamy Coconut Lime Dressing

I'm really quite predictable with my seasonal cravings. With every fall that arrives I'm overly enthusiastic about all things apple and of course sweet potatoes. But as the months wear on into winter I start longing for the summer produce again. I know there's things in season for a lot of people, but from where I'm sitting, the world outside ...

Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

I had the best lunch last week at a local Thai place that serves incredibly flavorful food. It was one of those meals that you just keep thinking about, and I knew I was going to need to recreate what I had to share with you too. So the thinking about lunch turned into an obsession, and I cancelled the ...

Molasses Ginger Cookie Energy Bites

My favorite cookie of all time is my Grandpa's Molasses Ginger Cookies which I made into a gluten free version last year. They're highly addictive, and so good that I don't make them too often because I lack a little thing called 'willpower'! So I thought it might be fun to take the same flavors of this classic cookie, and ...
