DELICIOUS, SIMPLE EATS

Baked Goods

Peach Blueberry Crumble (Dairy, Egg, & Gluten Free)

Peaches and blueberries. They’re so hot right now in the German farmers markets! I’ve pretty much made it a subconscious goal to eat peaches and blueberries daily. Carpe seasonal fruit, right? They also go together like peas and carrots in the dessert world, as I...

Gingerbread Spice Cookies (Dairy & Gluten Free)

Last week, in search of a delicious way to make gingerbread cookies sans wheat flour, these bad boys were inspired by a recipe from  The Food Lovers' Primal Palate.  They are DANGEROUS, let me warn you, and SO moist. Even freezing and serving them at a later date has...

Banana Date Muffins (Dairy & Gluten Free)

I was struck with another bought of creativity in the kitchen this week, plus a request for easy pre- and post-workout snacks from Kyle, so I went with it! With some dates in the cupboard and a few aging bananas, I whipped up a batch of these deliciously sweet goods....

Honey Nut Cookies (Dairy & Gluten Free)

This past weekend was a rainy one, and despite it being summer, I felt the need to bust out some comfort food in the kitchen! I opened the cupboards and saw minimal ingredients to work with... except for a bag of enticing cashews. Cashews, or "shews" as I call them...

Creamy Pumpkin Banana Raisin Muffins (Gluten Free!)

Despite attempts to avoid cooking at all costs in the past, I have succumbed to this new passion of mine…fervently!! There’s something addicting to whipping up a new concoction in the kitchen with my own hands, and making it into brilliant deliciousness (with just the...

Holiday Eats

Candy Cane & Macadamia Holiday Fudge

With Christmas music blaring everywhere and sparkly lights glistening on houses and trees, it's that time again! Enter comfort food, holiday baked goods, beverages... and candy canes.  Perhaps one of the most underrated holiday foods, this unassumingly sweet treat is...

22 “Healthified” Thanksgiving Recipes

So, I think I made a mistake. A 22-pound mistake. Yes, for the first time, my husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving. And for the first time, I was able to order a FRESH, local turkey from a nearby farm. At the time, I was SO geeked to have the chance to buy such a...

4-Ingredient Healthy Holiday Fudge

Is it SERIOUSLY already November? Before we even know it, the coming holiday rush of 6 weeks (yes, 6 weeks with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years!) will be upon us like Superstorm Sandy. And I'm not sure about you, but I get semi-anxious thinking about the...

Chicken & Veggie “Fried Rice”

"Can we cook something DIFFERENT for dinner tonight?" ...said my hungry husband on Monday. He has every right to complain. Ever since I've started blogging and doing my Master's program, working for a naturopathic doctor, and doing nutrition consulting here and there...

Red Pepper Tuna Cakes + Mandarin Orange Salad (Dairy & Gluten Free)

Taking online classes makes it tough to get to know fellow classmates, so recently, I decided to make my "virtual classroom" experience more real by reaching out to one of my classmates, Tarah. I discovered her through a link posted on Hawthorn University's blog, and...

Love Your Liver & Eat It, Too

The first time I tried liver four months ago, I failed. After reading up on the super power benefits of liver, I couldn’t not try this old-school organ. So, I purchased a massive beef liver from our local farmers market, and fried it up in bacon grease and onions,...

8 Ways to Tailgate Without Packing on the Pounds

It's going on six years since I've returned to my alma mater for a tailgate and a football game, but today is the day!! I have flashbacks from college, and the crisp fall days, manic student cheering section, "kegs 'n eggs" and booze, (which I could hardly ever...

AMAZING Citrus Kick Guacamole

Just last weekend, my husband, our friends and I were mowing on this exact recipe on a 90 degree + day. Who doesn't love guac on a hot summer day!? With an empty bowl and recipe requests, I promised to pass along my concoction of creamy, buttery, citrus-y (is that...
