Triple Cinnamon Scones

Triple Cinnamon Scones

Despite the years that have passed since I first wrote about these Triple Cinnamon Scones, I had never forgotten about them. They were that good. Although the recipe has been on my blog for the last 7 years, I wasn’t thrilled with my write-up. Back…

Healthier Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows

Healthier Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows

I first made this healthier version of sweet potatoes with marshmallows last Thanksgiving, and I adored them. It’s simply two ingredients – sweet potatoes roasted, split open, and topped with marshmallows. Thanksgiving just isn’t complete for us without some form of sweet potato. Alex in…

Ricotta Pound Cake

Ricotta Pound Cake

I love baking, but even so, I didn’t make this Ricotta Pound Cake assuming that I would share the recipe with you. Rather, as usual, I just had ricotta that I had to use up, so I searched for a recipe for it. Once I…

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

My favorite thing to eat when we order at Chipotle is their barbacoa. I love their flavorful shredded beef. I’m thrilled to be able to make it at home, with hardly any work! Never had barbacoa before? You’re missing out, and we can fix that…

Chocolate Oat Bars

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Since I keep getting zucchini in my CSA, I knew I had to revisit this chocolate zucchini cake recipe. Amelia usually won’t eat zucchini, and there’s only so much zucchini that Alex and I can eat (although it is great grilled). So savory dishes were…

Simple Cauliflower Curry

Simple Cauliflower Curry

I love the farm where I get my farm share each week. It’s thanks to them that I’m redoing this cauliflower curry recipe. This is my second year getting having a farm share from B & B Farms, and I still love going and getting…

Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie

Many people love fruit pies. Not me. I love fruit, but it’s best fresh or dried, and usually unsweetened. Let’s have fruit as part of our meal, and have our dessert be a pie that’s smooth and creamy, like this Coconut Cream Pie. Coconut Cream…

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

For the longest time, I searched for an orange cake that was as bright and citrusy as I thought an orange cake should be. 4 years ago, I finally found it. These orange cupcakes (or muffins – call them what you will) are loaded with…
