Garlicky Spinach & Bacon Dip

0 comments

This is THE spinach dip you need in your life.  Game day, girls night, holidays, Tuesdays…any reason is good enough to make this dip. It is the most spectacular dip.  Creamy and crunchy, salty, savory, and yet slightly sweet. It hits all the notes. But don’t just take my word […]

Vegan Jamaican “Beef” Patties

I’m going to start this post by saying no – I’m not producing these again.  It was fun while it lasted, but I no longer produce food in mass quantities for sale. That being said, a good friend of mine is slowly testing out plant-based food options and asked me […]

Happy first day of Autumn! I’m celebrating it with a sick kiddo this weekend. So, to cheer her up, we decided to play around with these new Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and make a new cereal bar treat! Regular Cheerios are a go-to cereal in our house. They are vegan (obviously), […]

No Bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

With back to school just around the corner, extra curricular activities starting up again, and the general easy-breezy-lazy days of summer fading away, I’m starting to prepare myself for the busy days ahead. Which, if you’re like me, means a whole lot of running (ok, driving) around shuffling little people to and fro, and constant trips to the grocery store, Walmart, etc., all while still trying to manage a career.

Morning breakfast rush, school lunches, after-school-on-the-way-to snack – all perfect examples of times where quick, make-ahead, healthy snacks (like these no-bake, low sugar chocolate chip energy bites) are a lifesaver.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

School mornings…they are just around the corner now.  And if they are anything like my house,  they involve a lot of rushing around  trying to get everyone out the door and on the school bus/dropped off at school on time, while searching for lost shoes, misplaced homework, the pink-with-purple-sparkles-and-a-unicorn hair […]
