Death by Chocolate Cupcakes

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Vegan

Recently, I was asked to make some Gluten-Free Vegan Cupcakes for a child’s birthday party after one of my unsuspecting victims tried my Carrot Cupcakes. These days I tend to shy away from making traditional desserts if I can, but was happy to oblige in contributing a healthier option. While talking to the mom about cupcakes, she asked if I could also make “something chocolate.” I believe that is a possibility. (more…)

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Plant-Based/Vegan

While I was sitting on the couch enjoying my coffee on a Sunday morning, I looked over at the kitchen and spotted them. There they were, bananas that were browning. My husband saw me staring, and asked what I was thinking about. “Those bananas are getting brown! I can making Banana Oatmeal Cookies with them today!!” I exclaimed. He chuckled, and said, “You get wayyyy too excited about food.” I disagree. (more…)

White Bean Chili

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Vegan/Vegetarian/Plant-Based

A friend of mine reached out and asked me if I had a good white chili recipe, and it dawned on me that I had never made it. How is this possible?? Well, it is. I’m glad the fire was lit under my booty with this idea, because this quickly came one of my favorite go-to soups to eat that is packed with fiber, veggies, and nutrients. Hmm, is this another recipe where I can hide some pureed cauliflower to unsuspecting victims? Why yes…yes it is. (more…)

Lemon Bars

Well, I’ve been looking for recipes lately that are different from what usually come out of my kitchen.  As I was flipping through a recipe book at the dinner table, I came across a recipe for lemon bars.  I looked at my husband and asked, “Do you like lemon bars?” and he replied, “I don’t think I’ve ever had them, but I do like lemon flavored stuff, so I probably would like them.”  I nodded.  He’s almost always open to trying something new, especially with food.  After doing some research on different recipes for lemon bars, I combined what other people had recommended and suggested for making the recipes even better, and got to work.

St. Patty’s Day Cocktails

Since I’m a huge fan of any type of recipes related to holidays, it only makes sense that I got abnormally excited to make these three cocktails when the month of March hit. Irish Cream liquor is so much more versatile than I ever imagined, and I have been throwing it in many recipes whenever given the opportunity. Well, here’s another opportunity knocking. (more…)

Penne alla Vodka

Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free/Vegan/Mediterranean

Check out my YouTube Channel!

While I was trolling through YouTube watching cooking videos, I came across this recipe on Anne’s Family Recipe channel. She made the traditional sauce that has dairy and gluten, but I realized quickly this was something I could easily replace these ingredients so my gut wouldn’t sucker punch me…in the gut.  (more…)
