Quinoa Tabbouleh Dip (Gluten Free!)

This quinoa tabbouleh recipe is a little different from your average tabbouleh because: A) I don't like parsley, so I substitute chopped spinach instead. (Way tastier!) B) I use quinoa instead of bulgur. (Way healthier! Quinoa has so many great nutritional values: low glycemic, gluten-free, a complete protein, and packed with fiber.) C) Tabbouleh is [...]

I recently remembered these pops and realized how easy they'd be to make, considering I make most of my homemade ice cream with coconut milk. [...]

Mango Sticky Rice

Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Toast

Ever since my trip to London this summer, I've been on an heirloom tomato kick. London has an abundance of great restaurants, all which seemed to offer heirloom mozzarella salads and heirloom toasts.

Vegan Snickers Ice Cream Bar

Sometimes, when I'm making a new recipe, it doesn't always turn out the way I'd hoped. Other times, it turns out even better. This is one of those times. I have to give credit to Minimalist Baker for inspiring this vegan Snickers ice cream bar recipe. I had to tweak it a bit and eliminate [...]

“Fried” Ice Cream Dessert (Vegan Friendly!)

So... I cook a lot. As you can probably guess. I play around with different recipes every day to see which dishes I like the most. And I can honestly say, this "fried" ice cream is the best thing I've ever made. I made a whole pan of this for the first time last week, and [...]
