Light and Fluffy Chocolate Mousse (with a surprising ingredient!)

Ok, I know it’s April, but this is not an April fool’s joke!

One of the main ingredients in this mousse is… the liquid from a can of chickpeas. I kid you not! And it makes for the fluffiest mousse I have ever made!

I first heard about using chickpea liquid, or aquafaba (literally […]

Green Tea Crepe Cake (dairy free and gluten free!)

I am so pumped about this new recipe!

Both my mom and mother-in-law get Martha Stewart Living magazine, and I remember seeing her recipe for this green tea crepe cake twice because of flipping through their mags. The second time seeing it, I said, I AM making this.

Of course, Martha’s has white flour […]

Chai Red Rice Pudding

Oatmeal is one of our go to breakfasts, with good reason. It’s easy, it’s cheap, it’s healthy, especially if you add spices, fruit, and any other toppings like flax and chia seeds.

I like to mix it up with my grains though! I’ve done that in the past with millet in my Pumpkin Millet Bowl, […]

The Healthiest Homemade Hot Chocolate!

Temperatures are in the single digits, the sky seems to constantly be gray, snow is falling.

With this winter weather, nothing beats cozy blankets, fuzzy socks, glowing candles, and… your hands wrapped around a cup of hot chocolate!

Of course I would want to make a healthier version of your typical hot chocolate. Why do […]

Immune Boosting Elderberry Jello

None of us are invincible.

I knew this intellectually, but seemed to have forgotten over the past couple of weeks, as I tried to do everything.

My husband had surgery and I was taking care of him, taking care of our daughter, cooking, cleaning, and picking up extra shifts at work to cover for him. […]

Chewy Molasses Cookies (vegan and gluten free!)

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last new post! We had a great November, with plenty of outside time!

Then… the snow hit! We actually got to have some fun in the snow too, unlike last year, where it seemed like we got her all bundled up but then she […]

Coconut Oat Ice Cream Sandwiches

I made coconut milk based ice cream all through July and August.

First, I was trying for a mint chocolate chip with mint from our garden. I’ve had success in the past using mint extract, like in this shake, but we have several kinds of mint taking over our garden and yard, so I wanted […]

No-Bake Superfood Brownies

I was really looking forward to trying to experiment with black bean brownies this week… until our air conditioner broke. What to do instead, since it was WAY too hot to turn on the oven? No-bake brownies! And why are they “superfood?” Well, because I tried to pack as many superfoods in them as I […]

Banana Crème Brûlée

When my husband and I were dating, one of our favorite desserts to get and share was crème brûlée. When we got married, we even registered for a little crème brûlée kit. Do you know how many times we actually made it? Once. We made it one time in the five years we’ve been […]

Easy Almond Maple Caramel

This almost doesn’t seem like it should be a recipe, it is so easy to make. I’ve been having this with an apple for dessert almost every night for the past couple weeks though, so why wouldn’t I post about it?

Usually, I just throw the four ingredients (raw almond butter,pure maple […]
