Cheesecake is one of those desserts that people REALLY, REALLY love. Can you blame them? The delicious, tender crust, the sweet, creamy tang of the cheese filling, and the endless possibilities for toppings.  Just give me a slice already! But did you know that way back in history, cheesecake was actually considered a great source of energy?! There’s even evidence that…

Strawberry Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

A week and a half ago I went strawberry picking for the first time. Together, Cam and I picked a whole bucket.  It didn’t take very long, actually.  This seemed like a lot of stawberries to us, but we saw many people leaving with 2 buckets per person. This $23 bucket got us pretty far.  Since then I made strawberry…

Citrus Chia Seed Quinoa Loaf

This is a hearty loaf that you can take with you on the run.  It’s delicious, satisfying, and guilt-free!  It also packs a superfood punch, with lots of vitamin rich citrus zest, ginger, chia and quinoa.  It’s gluten-free, and even grain-free.  It’s dense, filling, and based off a pound cake recipe from the Vitamix cookbook…but I’ve replaced most of the…

Superfood Kale Stuffed Zucchini Waffles

By | breakfast, clean eating, recipes, refined sugar free, savory, superfood, Uncategorized, vegetarian, waffles | 2 Comments

If you’re going to sneak veggies into something, go all the way.  I was really inspired by this recipe by Spabettie.  It was one of the reasons I wanted a waffle maker. Did you know that kale is the most nutrient dense food?  Learn to love it. It’s so hearty, that it’s good for stuffing things with, because it really…

Mango Coconut Waffles with Banana Syrup

As soon as it’s really winter, it’s time to pretend it’s not.  At least in my kitchen.  While I love eating local, and enjoying the farmer’s markets when they’re on, I also love that we’ve got access to all kinds of produce year round. First snow on the ground meant skating and taking a crazy winter run in a foot…

So I’m still working on the title. When in doubt, combine all words involved: Gingcocremecake? Okay, I’m open to naming ideas. But this is soooo creamy and delicious! I brought these to a dinner of 4 people…but made a double batch. My excuse? I had to save some to photograph! There’s your first reason to start a food blog. It’s…

Apple Fritter Pancakes

These are amazing. Every day for a month amazing. Actually…maybe even breakfast for dinner amazing.  I love how the apple is equally dispersed throughout the pancakes.  And the batter is moist, tastes like soft apple cake…or fritter. Yum. In most restaurants, apple pancakes are just plain pancakes covered in gooey sugary apple.  Not these!  Built-in apple is the way to…

Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

My boyfriend loves raspberries and chocolate.  Really, it’s him who loves these…I mean, I eat them when they’re around, but really, I make them for him.  Okay, that might not be entirely true. I’m a bit of a fan myself.  Especially when they’re together.  Suffice to say, when I have technical difficulties around here with my website and need a…

Stuffed Pepper Bruschetta

By | clean eating, dark leafy greens, low carb, recipes, savory, spinach, Uncategorized, vegetarian | No Comments

I love bruschetta.  It’s a great appetizer, refreshing and a little zesty with some parmesan.  I love it with avocado (though I didn’t use any here).  I’ll even have it for dinner sometimes, if I’m in a rush and have some tomatoes that need eating. I bought these mini sweet peppers, and they sat around, waiting for their perfect use,…
