Blueberry Vodka Fizz

I love pretty drinks. Especially if they're blue. Makes me feel like I'm drinking adult Kool-Aid. I have so many cocktail ideas (especially with all the new vodka flavors nowadays - whipped cream... cookie dough...) [...]

Berry Bruschetta with Honey Balsamic

The first time I ever tried a baked brie berry bruschetta dish was about 10 years ago at the News Cafe in Miami. My friend thought it was disgusting. I thought it was life changing. Not [...]

Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cups

I can’t believe I went my whole life without knowing how easy it is to make your own chocolate. And of course, after learning this, my first impulse was to make my childhood favorite candy [...]

This Thanksgiving wrap is completely dairy-free and meat-free, so it's perfect for those on a vegetarian or vegan diet! How many of you love Thanksgiving? Is your favorite part about Thanksgiving the side dishes? Mashed [...]

Skinny Caramel Macchiato

A cup of flavored coffee is a must to start my day. I don't like the taste of plain coffee, and even adding a splash of chocolate soy milk wasn't doing it justice. After tiring [...]

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Okay, there's a reason this baked potato soup is orange. It's because I used vegetable broth, which turned this white creamy potato deliciousness to bright orange. But fear not, it still has the same yummy potato [...]

Spicy Lentil Chili

A few things to know about this delicious spicy lentil chili recipe: I use a bag of lentils that are already cooked. (Trader Joe's has them in the refrigerated section next to the bags of [...]

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Skinny Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Spinach and artichoke dip is one of those appetizers that I always order when I'm at a restaurant, but I had never attempted to make it myself until last week. After conducting a bit of [...]

Chocolate Raspberry Chia Pudding

This recipe started out as plain old chocolate pudding. Not that there's anything wrong with chocolate pudding (it's wonderful), I was just trying to come up with an alternative to all these vegan chocolate mouse [...]

Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie Bowl

I follow a lot of food blogger Instagram accounts, and I find myself gravitating towards the pages that contain the most photos of smoothie bowls. It's not that smoothie bowls are difficult to make, I [...]

Sweet Potato Hash

Those of you who've read my other recipes may have noticed that I have a thing for sweet potatoes. I've made everything from cookies (sweet potato protein cookies) to tater tots (baked sweet potato tots), [...]

Kale & Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

This quinoa stuffed acorn squash is one of those recipes that makes me feel like a fancy chef, even though it's super easy to make. For a vegan version you can omit the crumbled goat [...]

Easy Corn Chowder

I've been on a corn kick lately. It started a few weeks ago when I had the most incredible corn tamales at a local Mexican restaurant. Then last weekend, a friend of mine hosted a [...]

Homemade Coconut Popsicles

In high school, my friends and I used to buy coconut popsicles every day in the school cafeteria. They tasted just like these popsicles (minus the whole dairy-free, sugar-free element.) I recently remembered these pops [...]
