Super Yum Roasted Veggie Bowl

A bed a silky kale, topped with roasted sweet potato, broccoli, beets, brussels sprouts, and red onion, sprinkled with crispy chickpeas and red quinoa. The ultimate veggie lover dream bowl. I’ve been trying to eat more vegetables, but don’t always feel like doing all the cleaning/chopping work that is required to make what I want….

Bloody Red Velvet Cupcakes

These cupcakes are to die for. Moist classic red velvet cake, fused with tangy vibrant raspberry coulis, and silky smooth whipped cream cheese icing. The combination is spookily delicious. I topped them with edible meat cleavers that I made from sculpting chocolate for an extra deadly creation. 😉🔪 Let’s make the cupcakes! Get out the dry ingredients…

Edible Meat Cleaver Decor

Halloween is almost here! Time to get spooky and scary and make something fun! 😃🔪 I decided I wanted to make some bloody cupcakes with meat cleavers as decor. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a small tub of white sculpting chocolate  and some black gel. I also used a small wooden fondant/pastry roller and two small…

Ginger Lemon Energy Balls

These are super easy to make and packed with so much delicious goodness. I love fresh ginger. I like to add fresh slices in when I make tea (green tea, fennel, chamomile… etc), and I’m trying to find new ways to incorporate it in my every day foods as well. These worked perfectly and opened…

Copycat Outback’s Alice Spring Chicken

I love chicken dipped in honey mustard. So, when I tried the Alice Springs Chicken at Outback Steakhouse, it became an instant favorite. I decided I must make a version of it at home. First off, I always make extra honey mustard to use later on, and I’m a heavy dipper, so if you don’t…

Blackberry Lime Cupcakes

I love fresh berries and citrus. Getting that perfect balance of sweet and tang in every bite, is mmm mmm good! These cupcakes start off with a moist vanilla lime based cupcake, then are piped with lime buttercream frosting, and topped with a sweet blackberry jam drizzle. If you don’t have a KitchenAid stand mixer*,…

Loaded Cabbage Soup

I love making big batches of soup to eat off of all week. So simple and delicious. I adapted this recipe from one of my friend (thanks Callie!). It is very hearty, packed full of flavor, and will definitely fill you up. Prep by chopping all of your vegetables and sausage. Then you are ready…

Over Easy Egg Avocado Toast

I love eating eggs for breakfast and am constantly trying to ‘spice it up’ a little and add a new twist, other than just simply scrambling an egg. This was actually my first attempt at an over easy egg, and I would say it is de-ee-ecent (Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys anyone?). I eat tacos…
