Chickpea chocolate chip cookies {Vegan and gluten free}

After I posted the recipe the other day for the black bean brownies, my brain started turning and I started wondering what other sweet treats I could create with beans. I guess I was thinking about it subconsciously because I came up with this recipe as I woke up from a nap. I turned to…

Strawberry rhubarb pie-crumble

It’s strawberry season! Which means all the food bloggers will be putting out strawberry rhubarb recipes of some sort and I would be amiss if I didn’t join in πŸ˜‰ I decided to make a pie crumble because I wanted crumble and Matt wanted pie. I notice that that’s been a trend here on this…

Fish Burritos

Okay so if you had an immediate “ew” reaction to that title, trust me- I get it. Everyone loves the idea of fish tacos, but no one thinks about making fish burritos. Why though?? I have always been more of a burrito fan over tacos, but I still love fish tacos, especially with a grilled…

Ribollita

On June 11th, 2016, I married the man of my dreams. A year later and I still don’t regret it, so I’d say it was a good choice πŸ˜‰ In all seriousness though, getting married has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. I’m not saying it’s for everyone or that you need…

Chunky Monkey Frozen Yogurt

It’s starting to get warm here in good Ol St. Louie which means there is one thing on my mind…ICE CREAM. However, if I gave into my ice cream cravings every time they crossed my mind, well I would be eating ice cream probably at least 3 times a day. I figured though I could…

Black Bean Brownies

Okay, so I know I’m behind the trend here with black bean brownies. I feel like these guys were one of the first healthy desserts people even considered trying. I’ve always wanted to make them and just haven’t. Today of all days (when I have a presentation, multiple essays, and a final next week)Β  though…

Shepard’s Pie, AKA Sara’s Pie

As I sit here writing this post, my dog Penny is sitting on my lap. She’s only about 3 lbs and she’s the sweetest. But I swear I just heard her stomach growl and the sound that came out definitely sounded like it should come from a 30 pound dog, not a 3 pound dog….

Not your mama’s carrot soup

The other day, Matt and I went to Denver for the SOPHEΒ  (schools of public health education) conference. While I learned a lot at the conference, we also had a great time exploring the city-including all the food they have to offer! The first night we were there though we went to this Italian restaurant…

Mini cashew cream cheesecakes

So, I had this great idea to create a gif of the little cheesecakes stacking up and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out…I mean look how cute they are! Anyway, background to this recipe. I had a bunch of cashews in my pantry and I was like hmm what can I make with…
