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…

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….

Rae Thai (One Pot Rice Pasta)

Hello everyone! I hope you all are doing lovely today. I’m super excited to share this recipe with you because it’s super easy and totally guilt free.  You may not know this, but I am in love with Asian cuisine. I know I always say I’m in love with other stuff like pasta and cream…

Chicken Sausage Lentil Pasta

By now I am pretty sure you are all WELL AWARE of my addiction to pasta. I created this guilt-free alternative and it turned out to be a hit. Contrary to popular belief, everything I try in the kitchen isn’t always a hit. When I made this I wasn’t on the fast, but you can…

Meatless Enchiladas

So the Lent season is upon us, and it’s that time to go totally vegan…totally gluten free…totally wine-less. I might be getting sadder and sadder as I continue to type this. I kid. I kid. I am like a pro at this (sort of). My first experiment this season was meatless enchiladas. I was craving…

Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Filling

We wear pink on Wednesdays, but we eat pink cupcakes WHENEVER we want! If you know where the first half of that line comes from, you are fine with me. If you don’t, well I guess you’re still fine 😉 I’ve been in love with the color pink my entire life. So when I get…

Salmon in a Blanket 

Seriously who in the world wraps salmon in Pastry? I’ve been seeing everyone do it on the internet and as I’ve said before, sometimes I tend to bandwagon hop. So here’s my stab at taking something totally healthy and wrapping it with the most unhealthy thing I could find.  What you need: 2 tbsp olive…

Cajun Blackened Shrimp

Hi fellow foodies! Can I get a witness that shrimp is one of the most amazing creations for the kitchen? I love to eat shrimp. Big shout out to Mr. Bubba Gump himself! Anyway, I love trying new things with shrimp because it’s one of the more simpler proteins to work with as long as…

Balsamic Honey Roasted Brussels

The first time I ate Brussels sprouts I wanted to punch my mother in the face. Ok, I’m exaggerating a little. Well a lot because my mother is crazy so I would never even fix my mind to think about punching her in the face. I’m actually a little scared to publish this post because…

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Shake

Who says you can’t have a milkshake for breakfast? And I’m not talking about one of those chalky powder protein shakes either. I’m talking legit milkshake–thick, creamy and delicious! Here’s what you need: 1 cup Silk Nutchello Dark Chocolate Walnut Milk 2 scoops peanut butter 1 banana Few pieces of ice Drizzle of honey or…

Eggplant No Parmesan

When I’m ditching meat I always turn to meatier veggies so I’m not feeling deprived. Otherwise I’ll be cruising in the drive thru for a Whopper with cheese, no pickles, no onions and a large cherry icee because if I’m going to break the fast I’m going all the way.  To avoid that, I cook…

Cucumber Tomato Salad

It’s that time of year again…our church is starting our 40 day fast. I enjoy the fast because it gives me an opportunity to reset spiritually and physically. As always, I’ll be building all my recipes over the next 40 days around the Daniel Fast. That’s right folks…vegan and gluten free for 40 days. I…
