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 […]

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 […]

Sweet and Salty Cashew Popcorn

Talk to my college roommates, and they will tell you it’s not an exaggeration when I say I used to eat microwave popcorn every single day. After dinner we’d all settle in to study and they’d hear the popping of my “extra butter” bag of popcorn.

When I made a drastic change in the foods […]

Banana Macaroon Chia Pudding

Coming off Halloween weekend, most people have had more than their fair share of sugar. I know I would have, IF we bought candy. That’s right, we didn’t buy any candy for Halloween! Because our new house is out in the country, we knew we wouldn’t have any trick-or-treaters. The only neighbor close enough to […]

Slowcooker Applesauce Without a Recipe

I realized I hadn’t done a post in awhile, but my excuse is that we moved! And, what a lot of work moving is… especially when you have a 15 month old who gets into everything.

We’ve spent a lot of the last two weeks doing yard work, and when the weather starts turning, we’ll […]
