Tahini Stuffed Dates

I don't know about you, but dates are one of my favorite things to snack on.  They're like an all natural caramel candy & are so delicious.  Sometimes I get bored eating dates by themselves, so I like to try out random combinations of things with them... and when I created these a few weeks [...]

Winter Harvest Pasta

So a few weeks ago, I went to the farmers market in hopes of getting some produce to make dinner... but didn't have any kind of game plan in mind.  I just knew I wanted to get whatever looked good at the moment and make something with that.  When I got there, they had the [...]

Breakfast Sandwich with Sriracha Maple Syrup

Who doesn't love a good breakfast sandwich?  They're one of my favorite foods, and are so versatile.  You can make it on toast, a bagel, or English muffin, with whatever fillings you'd like... really giving you the power to fully customize it to your liking.  I always like a classic "sausage, egg, & cheese on [...]

White Chocolate Pistachio Granola Bars

So I'm going to be honest with you guys...  I've never made granola bars before.  Ever.  It seems like something that people make all the time, but I don't eat them very often so never thought about making my own.  My boyfriend on the other hand... he eats them on a daily basis.  I was [...]

Garbage Plate

Right out of high school, I lived in Rochester, New York for about 2 years.  If any of you are from Upstate New York, you've probably heard of the infamous Garbage Plate.  The perfect late night drunk / early morning hungover meal consisting of macaroni salad, home fries, chili meat sauce, either 2 cheeseburger patties, [...]

French Onion Burger

Have you ever had a craving for French onion soup & a burger at the same time?  I have, and well, that's how this recipe came about.  I've always loved French onion soup, I mean, who doesn't, but I never have found it to be filling enough for a whole meal.  Combining these flavors into [...]

Chorizo Mac & Cheese

Queso with Chorizo has always been one of my favorite Mexican appetizers at any restaurant.  I remember going to a local place growing up and getting so excited to order a big crock full of queso blanco with spicy chorizo to dip crispy homemade chips in.  I have wanted to make a recipe for that [...]

Hassleback Butternut Squash

Butternut Squash is one of my favorite fall vegetables to cook.  I've seen so many recipes floating around for hassleback squashes, and gosh they are just SO pretty.  Theres one I saw, I forget who posted it, it sounded absolutely delicious... but unfortunately wasn't vegan.  So I took inspiration from that to bring you this [...]

Pumpkin Pasties

For those of you who don't know, I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan.  I've always wanted to try all of the delicious treats described in the books, and Pumpkin Pasties were always the ones I was most excited about.  If you haven't read the books, Pumpkin Pasties are essentially handheld pumpkin pies.  Now there is [...]

Mason Jar Meal Prep

For those of you who don't know, I used to meal prep full time, and still meal prep part time- but I get asked all the time on what some easy on the go meals are that you don't necessarily have to heat up to enjoy!  These are some of my favorite mason jar meal [...]
