Pumpkin Chai Bread

Guys… IT’S HERE. Not officially, but the weather says otherwise. Fall weather is my faaaavorite season! Get ready for lots of Fall-ish recipes. Ah I’m just so happy.  Okay, this bread. Probably one of my favorite things that I have made so far. Sam and I ate the whole loaf in 2 days. It is really yummy for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee and a little bit of almond butter on top πŸ™‚ MMM! It is loaded with all of the flavors of Fall. It was also the perfect study snack! I brought some in to work to have

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins (Grain-Free!!)

A muffin that won’t give you a muffin-top. Sign me up! I love muffins. Egg muffins, savory muffins, sweet muffins. They are so easy to just grab’n go. And they are the perfect size! I find that when I bake loafs, I cut myself a huuuuuge (Donald Trump voice) slice, whereas a muffin is already a perfect serving size! Lemon poppyseed is one of my favorite muffin flavors. It’s really light, airy, and refreshing, but also is a comfort food. I always try to bake grain-free, which is great if you have allergies or are simply trying to avoid grains!

Nutella Cookies

Nutty, roasted hazelnuts paired with decadent, smooth dark chocolate. The best combination known to man. I love to spread Nutella on just about anything. My favorite is in-between a warmed croissant, with a cup of coffee, watching a Christmas movie. Ugh, yes pleeeeease! If you share this love for Nutella, then boy do I have a treat for you! I’m not vegan, vegetarian, or strictly raw, but I do love to try and eat that way as much as possible. Don’t get me wrong, nothing beats a juicy steak or a grilled chicken wrap. But when I eat mostly plant-based foods, I

Cauliflower Pizza for Two <3

Ahhh I love to cook and I love it even more when it’s with Sam πŸ™‚ We always have so much fun together. Who doesn’t love singing, dancing, cooking, and drinking wine?! All with your best friend. Ok, ok, I’ll stop gushing. Anyways! Pizza is something we both consistently crave. So, to satisfy this craving we decided to make a healthy alternative! Cauliflower pizza. Healthy, satisfying, and you cannot even tell that it isn’t real dough. Weird thing we discovered… while the cauliflower rice was boiling, it definitely smells a bit like weed. So beware if you don’t want your neighbors

Cranberry Muffins with Orange Glaze (Grain Free!)

Happy first of November!! Eeee my excitement is through the roof! I absolutely love the Holiday season and for me, November 1st kicks it off So, why not accompany this special day with a delicious muffin? Plus, it is Sunday – aka National Baking Day aka THE BEST DAY EVER. November makes me think of cranberries. I love the tart flavor that they have. Funny fact about these glossy, scarlet red berries is that they bounce! They contain air pockets in them, which causes this and is also the reason why they float in water (which is a really pretty centerpiece

Blueberry Banana Mug Cake (Made w/Coconut Flour!)

Hump daaAAyyy! Whoa, I can’t believe it is already Wednesday. Let alone almost October! What?! I could’ve sworn it was August yesterday. Life has been busy, that’s for sure. Sam and I feel like the energizer bunny! Excuse me while I go make another pot of coffee. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal, not to mention the most important. Which by the way, you always want to eat within 30 minutes of waking up. It helps kickstart your metabolism and wake your body up! It can be hard to do, but eat even if you aren’t hungry! Anyways, I digress… where

Coconut & Almond Flour Banana Bread

When my man asks for banana bread, he GETS banana bread! I think banana bread is a staple in every household, so finding the perfect (and healthy!) recipe was a top priority. I am happy to announce that I have succeeded at such a task because OMGGG this is drool worthy! Tomorrow Sam starts his first day of fall semester for medical school… (silently screams). Every Sunday is a little lazy, but we made sure this particular one was extra lazy. Slept in, enjoyed our cinnamon hazelnut coffee together (killer), watched Netflix, shopped, and obviously we (I) baked! Moist, nutty, flavorful,
