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….

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…

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…

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…

RC’s Sweet Potato Chili

I’ve never really been a very huge fan of chili, but my husband enjoys it very much. And I make it my business to make sure I can do anything he likes extremely well. Each year during the Lent season we participate in a fast at our church which is basically a reset for us…

Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Vegan Alfredo

So I’ve been experimenting with all different types of vegan Alfredo options because I am in love with Alfredo. I could bathe in it just about every day of my life. With a nice glass of Chateauneuf du Pape 😍 At any rate, here’s one of my creamiest vegan Alfredo creations. The cashews are the…

RC’s Fancy Ramen

I am actually an avid Ramen hater. I ate it all the time growing up–which is one of the reasons I learned how I cook. My parents would leave me and my brothers at home when my older brother turned 11 or 12 and Ramen was always our go-to because it was the easiest and…

Vegan-Gluten Free Alfredo 

The Lent season is upon us and we are all in for the Daniel Fast for a full 40 days. It’s always so exciting to see friends, family and my Facebook feed getting creative with the Daniel Fast each year. And in honor of so many people around me participating in the Daniel Fast at…

Honey Roasted Carrots

So everyone is suddenly obsessed with colored carrots so I decided to try my take on this healthy color palette. My first stab at it was a beer-braised cranberry carrot mix. It failed. While I haven’t given up on my beer-braised variation, I did decide to keep it simple this time. This recipe is one…
