Chicken and dumplings {Not healthy, vegan or gluten free, woops}

Today I am writing a post for a recipe I meant to write a couple of weeks ago. It’s okay though, chicken and dumplings are forgiving. They are slow and loving and comforting and all they want to do is make you happy. I mean for goodness sakes’, dumplings look like PILLOWS. Also, side note,…

Fig or Date and Nut Stuffed Cookies {Gluten free}

  Recently, Matt and I became the happy owners of a Costco membership. The first time we went, we spent much more than I care to admit (insert monkey face emoji covering it’s eyes). So today, I made sure to only get the necessities. Except figs. C’mon, you couldn’t really expect me to avoid them,…

Health-ier Turtle Cookies

Hi everyone! Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. Matt and I moved to a new house and I started a new job, so life has been busy to say the least! Anyway, let me tell you a story about my favorite topic- food, of course… Chapter 1: The other day I went to Target…

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 😉 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 😉 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)  though…
