Not one flavor overpowers the other….just touches of each compliment each other. It is mildly sweet, making it the perfect breakfast [...]

Maple Vanilla Cupcakes

I’ve known my best friend Kacy since we were 6 years old. She is truly one of the most amazing people I’ve ever known. She is humble, intelligent and down right hilarious. She is getting married soon and has graciously asked me to be her matron of honor. I’m so excited for her and to [...]

Granola

Butter-Licious Granola (Refined Sugar-Free, Oil-Free, Gluten-Free)

This granola is all about butters…peanut butter and almond butter. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but store bought granola runs at least $6 a bag for a decent blend…and even those contain added sugars and oils usually. Well, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a peanut and almond butter granola, so here you go! I also [...]

Chickpea Dip

Roasted Chickpea “Cheese” Bean Dip (Gluten-Free, Oil-Free, Low-fat)

This may just be my favorite new dip. It honestly could be called hummus too, since I use chickpeas. However, I feel it’s more along the lines of a bean dip because I created the consistency to be similar to Frito Lay bean dip that I used to be addicted to. I made this slightly spicy, [...]

I shared recently on Facebook that I would be incorporating a couple of raw days a week. If you’re unfamiliar to what this means, it is simply eating fresh whole foods in their pure form, no cooking involved. I promised that I would share this particular smoothie. It has been one of my many smoothies. IT [...]

Chipotle Red Pepper Dip (Gluten-free, Oil-free, Fat-free)

I’ve got a special treat for you today….and it’s NOT dessert. I’ve been posting a lot of desserts lately, but it is the holidays afterall. This dip, sauce or whatever you want to call it, is screaming with flavors and it is extremely versatile. I used it here for dipping breadsticks in, but it is [...]

Roasted Pecan Butter

Roasted Pecan Butter

Allow me to introduce to you pure yumminess. Roasted pecan butter. I find this much tastier than almond butter and it’s also a lot easier to make. Almond butter requires a really long time in the food processor…like 15 minutes. A lot of people can’t make it because their food processor isn’t powerful enough. Problem [...]
