Creamy Cashew Basil Pesto

Basil. Quite possibly my favorite herb. Recently, I’ve taken preference to enjoying pesto on my pasta dishes rather than tomato sauces. Something about the pungent freshness of basil has become so much more enticing to me. In my opinion, pesto is the king of sauces. Now as you’ve read before, my fiancé has a lactose intolerance — so store bought pestos are usually out of the question due to the cheese content. There are vegan pestos, but…

Almond Milk

Now that I have a hand-me-down professional grade blender (thank you mom!) I decided I want to start making my own almond (and soon cashew) milk. I have been drinking alternative milks for years now, not because I have an intolerance, but because I never really liked the taste of regular milk. My fiancé though, does have a lactose intolerance; so that makes it a no-brainer for us to use non-dairy items in our home. There…

Toasted Coconut Curry Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are having a total moment right now. This is a short and sweet recipe post for my currently favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes. (shout out to the close second, sweet potato toast, or sweet potaTOAST, if you will.) These diced and spiced sweet potatoes are a BANGIN’ sidekick to any meal. Yesterday I had them along side some fried eggs and avocado, last week along side a tilapia filet topped with fruit salsa. This bright…

Golden Milk Almond Flour Spice Bread

I’d consider myself pretty kitchen savvy in regards to cooking. I can improvise and combine flavors and ingredients pretty well without too much thought. Baking, on the other hand, does not come so easy for me. Even more difficult, is trying to develop baking recipes with non-traditional ingredients such as alternative flours, binders and sweeteners. With the encouragement of my fiancé, I decided to experiment with developing a baked goods recipe. I knew I wanted…

Cinnamon Chipotle Lentil Vegetable Soup

It has literally been raining for 10 days straight here in Watertown, NY. Which has been great for being super productive, but not-so-great for much else. (How long does it take to become Vitamin D deficient? lol) I don’t know about you but when the weather outside is frightful, a hot bowl of soup sounds so delightful!…(Corey is right, Im so corny.) Back when I was living in NYC, I would often make a large pot…

Ginger Coconut Steel Cut Oats

Goooood Morning! This lazy rainy Saturday has so far been spent curled up on the couch with some coffee. Both Corey and I are working on internet projects, so what better way to do so than snuggled together with our MacBooks and sippin’ on some hot java? Saturdays are often a big breakfast kind of morning, but given the large Cinco de Mayo feast that took place last night, we both were craving something light for breakfast.…

Cilantro-Lime Broccoli Slaw

Taco night was a hit! There is something so great about getting together with people and communally stuffing your face with delicious eats. Tacos are probably our (Corey and I) favorite food of all time, so we were pretty excited about having people over and being able to mass produce tacos. We like to use corn tortillas for our tacos (shout out to GF foodies!). Quick tip: warm the tortillas on a skillet, and then…
