WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST? Pumpkin Pancakes/ Waffles

I know I’m really pushing the pumpkin here, but I don’t think you guys understand that I LIVE for this time of year. I love to dress in layers, eat soup, go holiday shopping, decorate, and put pumpkin in everything. I really do. And since I can really only enjoy one of those things at…

Spinach Dip (Always A Crowd Pleaser)

You know how each family has their own little food traditions that everyone follows, NO MATTER WHAT? Yeah? Well, ours is spinach dip. And it’s not just any type of spinach dip. You can’t buy this spinach dip in the store. No. You have to make it. Well, not you specifically. Just any family member…

Egg Drop Soup (A Fond Memory)

Fall is almost here and I’m SOUP-er excited for soup season. Nothing feels better than sitting outside with a warm bowl of soup, watching the leaves turn. So, in order to celebrate, I’m going to try to share some of my favorite soup recipes that can be enjoyed throughout the following months. Starting with this…

Ranch Dressing

Okay, I am actually very happy with this recipe. When I first learned I had developed a dairy allergy (like, no animal milk what-so-ever… Goodbye goat cheese! 😥 ), I was really heartbroken because it was the one allergy I felt like I was impervious to. I really don’t know why, I just did. Anyways,…

A Quick Review: Black Bean Pasta

  It’s weird. It tastes chewy. BUT, it cooks like regular pasta. Remember to always salt the water. Unlike gluten-full pasta, you’ll never make too much of this just because it is impossible to do so. The thickness and length of the noodles are so small, an entire bag could just feed a family of…

Tomato Sauce Recipe

I realized that I’ve already uploaded a few posts already that had my tomato sauce in it (and plan on adding more in the future), so I figured I might as well share the recipe. You know, for continuity and all that. You’re welcome. P.S. This makes a LOT of sauce. It was enough to…

New Lifestyle Tools: My Philips Air Fryer

I love new gadgets in my kitchen and nothing gets me more excited than trying out new recipes that are intended to make my life a little better. I saw my first air fryer in the Groupon goods section, but after reading the reviews on that specific brand and model, I passed on it. I…

My First Attempt at Paleo Pasta

Okay, to back-pack off of my angry post from before, I have finally calmed down enough to type an actual post about my actual experiences in the kitchen with that messed up pasta recipe. I had mentioned that I was craving pasta, but since I had been having bad reactions to gluten and rice, I…

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I told you my next recipe was going to be a gluten-free one. I had planned on making my chocolate chip cookies with my pretty, new gluten-free flour blend, but the oatmeal raisin ones had been on my mind for a much longer period of time. I really couldn’t bring myself to make the chocolate…

Paleo-/ Vegan-Friendly Cream of Carrot Soup

It’s that time of year again where soup becomes a viable option for body sustainability. It is warm, comforting, and above all, easy to eat. Really. All you have to do is swallow. Any true lazy person would agree with me. Soup is the ULTIMATE lazy person food. You just throw stuff into a pot…

Gluten-Free 2x Chocolate Pancakes

So, we’ve been in Atlanta for a week now, and I have yet to bring myself to make anything in the kitchen outside of baked potatoes and oven roasted chicken. UNTIL NOW! I figured the BEST, first thing to make was something simple,… something I could use to gauge the heat settings on the stove…

Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Finally, a new post! Hooray! I’ve been so busy with being sick and preparing to move and everything else that life has to throw at me, that I have been kept away from updating this blog. Well, NO MORE! Now that things are being taken care of and this move is finally happening, I’m FINALLY…
