Creamy Coconut Lime Chia Pudding

This coconut lime combination has become one of our favorites. It's one of those combinations you don't expect to fall head over heels for when you're a 'dyed in the wool' chocoholic, but what can you do!?! It all started with my Coconut Lime Ice Cream which has become Tyler's most requested dessert. And from there I started using the ...

Strawberry Mango Avocado Salsa

This recipe came about entirely by accident. I was trying to picture what sort of topping/salsa I might want on top of my Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken, (pictured below) when it occurred to me that mango salsa would be really awesome. But of course I was running short on mangos, so I added what I did have, which happened ...

Grilled Romaine Salad with Strawberries and Fennel Vinaigrette

This recipe was inspired by a request for a salad with grilled romaine. I had a salad once in a restaurant that had grilled romaine in it, and it was so awesome! But somehow I've just never translated the concept into my at home cooking. So I'm so glad I had this request because it's high time to add grilled ...

Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet Chili Mango Sauce

It might still be pretty cold around here, winter temperature are hanging on with hail one minute, and pouring rain the next. But the grass is slowly turning green, the trees are budding, and I'm in full force Spring mode! I'm so predictable because I do this every year, I jump in full speed ahead into all the nice new ...

Homemade Grain Free Rawnola Cereal

Rawnola aka raw/unbaked granola is definitely a game changer, you might even say life changing! And as you know, I love to save those sweeping overly dramatic statements for super easy recipes that really do change the way you eat. While I'll never loose my obsession for this Maple Cinnamon Granola, I don't always have time to whip up a ...

10 Minute Soft Serve Mango Ice Cream

Fruit based ice creams, or 'nice creams' as they're sometimes known, as are nothing short of revolutionary! They're like a cross between actual ice cream and a sorbet. Another major bonus is they're so fast to make, you can have ice cream in your bowl in just 10 minutes start to finish - it's hard to beat that! I make ...

Easy Sautéed Lemon Herb Zucchini

We're continuing with the side dishes again this week with another easy, flavorful recipe! With the abundance of summer zucchini right around the corner, I'm already thinking of ways to use up what's coming. Every year, I over plant zucchini in the garden, but I haven't regretted it yet! We make a lot of zucchini noodles year round, but especially ...

Balsamic Glazed Red Pepper Green Beans

I never noticed before, but there is a stunning lack of side dishes on this website. So I've been working on turning that around! I think the main reason is we make so many one pan/pot dinners, that side dishes don't happen all that often. But another fun way to make dinner time easier is to make a flavorful side ...

Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Tart

Today we're pairing decadence with no-bake convenience in this Nutella inspired tart. It looks impressive, yet it's quite easy to make. Although I won't deceive you, peeling the hazelnuts takes a little time, that will more than rewarded when you take your first bite! The ultimate dessert for me is one that can be made ahead, and kept in the ...
