Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

I found another use for all those pecans! I needed a quick dish to bring to my small group bible study. Pecans to the rescue! I found a recipe online and totally botched it. It was late when I was making these and once I put them in the oven I realized I completely screwed…

BBQ Pecan & Parm Meatballs (Vegetarian)

Meatless in May has me all kinds of creative in the kitchen. So far all the recipes I’ve tried have been a hit. And tonight’s didn’t fail me. I used the meatball recipe from Blue Bird & Blackberries as my base and made a few changes of my own. Honestly, I wasn’t so sure about…

Coconut Almond Tres Leches Cake

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo! In America we celebrate this holiday as if it is our own celebration. It’s so fun to have tacos and margaritas and chips and guac and everything else that comes along with Cinco de Mayo celebrations. But last night I came across a video on Facebook that made me stop…

Sweet & Spicy Cauliflower Wings

I am a huge lover of cauliflower. I could eat it everyday. I discovered my love for cauliflower at an Indian restaurant. I was on the Daniel fast and I wanted something flavorful but I wasn’t sure what. I explained to the waiter that I wanted something that tasted really good but it couldn’t have…

Broccoli Fritters

Just as we were nearing the end of April a friend of mine challenged me to go meatless for the month of May. Because I’m still trying to kick my pregnancy weight, I figured it would be a good idea to join her. In preparation for #MeatlessInMay, she posted zucchini fritters on her Snapchat. They…

Vegan Avocado Cinnamon Muffins

One day my husband came home with a sack of avocados. And by sack, I legit mean sack. He put them on the counter and said, “I know how much you love avocado.” He was right. I do love avocado–so much. But all you avocado lovers know that it’s a tough life dealing with avocados….

Dill Chicken Meatballs

Lately I’ve sort of been obsessed with chicken meatballs. I’m not so sure why but they’ve taken over in my kitchen. Chicken is such a blank slate, but it can also be very boring and monotonous if you’re not careful. Luckily meatballs are far from boring, especially when you have a seasoning rack filled with…

Honey Garlic Wings

Last week I had an ahh-mazing girls night with a couple of tried and true friends and a couple of new friends. I’ve been struggling lately with a bit of friend turnover when I realized that a few people I considered to be very good friends didn’t deserve that title at all. People say you…

Gluten Free Sweet Potato Bread

First off I’d like to send a huge thank you to all of my followers. You guys have been going strong with me for a while and I appreciate you keeping up with my stories and recipes (even in the times when I completely neglect my blog space). Today I have a brand new recipe…

Carrot Gnocchi

Carrots are my favorite vegetable. I loved eating them as a kid and still love them now. I used to think carrots helped your eyes, but it turns out that may not be the case. Or maybe I just never ate enough because I’m blind as a bat. Anyway, when I cook carrots I typically…

Chicken Sausage & Peppers

Summer is on its way out the door. And that means goodbye to all the colorful dishes and hello to pumpkin and sweet potato. But summer isn’t gone yet, so I’m holding on to it for as long as I possibly can.  That’s why I decided to go for sausage and peppers for dinner tonight….

Honey-Spice Poached Pears in Almond Pudding

I am a sucker for anything light and creamy and sweet of course. I asked my husband to pick up some fruit from the store one day and he came home with a sack full of pears. I’m typically more of a strawberry, grapes & kiwi type of girl, but my honey was onto something…
