White Chocolate Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet is a staple in my family. My bonus daughter is highly addicted–and by addicted I mean she could eat an entire cake in a day if you let her. One of my nephews also loves Red Velvet but he prefers his Red Velvet sans the cream cheese frosting. I know, I know. It’s…

Blackened Catfish Tacos

Hello my loves! Where are all my taco heads at? If you love tacos say heeeeeeey! Is it cool to label taco lovers as taco heads? I don’t see why not. We call sneaker lovers sneaker heads. I guess if you love butt then you’re a butthead. Hahaha. Ok. Enough of my lame jokes and…

Sweet Potato Toast

Breakfast might be my favorite meal of the day. The eggs, the bacon, the raisin toast, the biscuits, the bagels, the English muffins, the croissants–it’s all just so good. Can you tell I have a bread problem? Besides the eggs, bread might be what I like the most about breakfast. But when fitness goals are…

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…
