Magic Bars

After nearly a month of being MIA, I knew I’d just have to come back with a BANG! This recipe is a new favorite and it’s hard to see all these pictures without having a bar to munch on while I type…UGH! Where to even start with how much I love these… All the ingredients…

Creamy Cilantro Chicken

Easy! Quick! Healthy! Check, check, check! May 5th, Cinco de Mayo was celebrated a few days ago. I warned my husband that I was cooking Mexican but it was something different. Our standby Mexican favorite is linked here. This recipe was a breath of fresh air, a nice spicy switch up to our usual favorite….

Smoked Chipotle Nachos

I tend to work with the same repertoire of ingredients so this recipe is was FUN and creative. I found this salsa and it totally inspired me. I feel like a good chef (I’m not actual referring to myself now;) lets ingredients shape a recipe. You have to let what speaks to you…speak to you! So this salsa was…

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

  I have been incredibly blessed with wonderful friends who introduced to me those little beauties. I have changed them slightly by making them more spiced, and less banana-y. I’ve been in search of a muffin that wasn’t too egg-y. So many gf/df muffins are way too dense. The flavor and consistency is spot on!…

Swedish Meatballs

I’m trying with every fiber of my being to fight the winter blues. As much as I love New York, how are we ever going to survive these cold months? I have had to become intentional about counting my blessings because it becomes a challenge to not let this dark whole of winter swallow me….

Mexican Quinoa

I’m such a huge fan of Mexican food but not a fan of the way it often makes me feel. The heaviness of the rice and beans can be a bit much at times. This is such a light way to enjoy the savory flavors of a Mexican dish. Quinoa is a power food, super…

Sun Dried Chicken Bake

I have been SO excited to share this deliciousness with you! I have always been in love with sundried tomatoes in…well…everything. I went through a phase where I made sundried tomato frittatas almost weekly, which I will make and share soon. The creaminess of the coconut cream and milk creates a silky consistency that is…

Fluffy Banana Pancakes

I feel like I’m constantly telling of a food that I didn’t like but now it’s my fave. This is another one of those recipes. I totally love bananas even though I despised them for…well…ever. Until now! I absolutely love this natural sweetness that can be used in so many ways. These banana pancakes are…

Almond Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Wishing you the happiest of holidays as we celebrate our Savior’s birth! I’ve tried to keep the true meaning of this time of year in the forefront of my mind. It seems so common to say that but I’ve spent time, purposeful time, on that thought. It is ALL of Him BECAUSE of Him and…

Sweet Potato Stuffing

In the beautiful midst of the holiday season, I’m happily enjoying my third batch of this sweet potato stuffing. Going gluten free, many complain they miss the ‘hearty’ or ‘filling’ aspect of gluten products. This stuffing has both hearty and filling and that’s just in the potatoes…never mind the savory sausage or sweet onion that…
