Bee Friendlier + {Apricot Tomato Bruschetta}

I recently had the great privilege of spending time up in Washington state touring Cascadian Farm's home farm. To say that it was strikingly beautiful and refreshingly authentic is a complete understatement. I learned all about the ins and outs of organic farming, what's required, why it's better not only for our bodies to eat food grown organically but also for the land itself, and how important bees are. Yes, tiny buzzing bees. Did you know that essentially one out of every three bites of food we consume requires bee pollination to grow? ...

Healthy Fall Treats + {Butterscotch Pumpkin Bark}

My blogging besties and I are back to share with you some super fun, healthy fall treats! Remember our healthy back-to-school menu? All of the recipes are paleo, gluten-free, and dairy-free. I'm not sure if I've told you yet, but I can NOT do any paleo baking myself. Why? I have had fail after fail after fail, and the only thing I can come up with is the altitude. The almond flour and coconut flour don't play nice above 7,000 feet. ... Read more » about Healthy Fall Treats + {Butterscotch Pumpkin Bark}

Pear, Walnut, and Maple Kale Butternut Squash "Rice"

I made you rice.... out of butternut squash! I know it sounds weird, but it has an amazing texture and a very mild flavor that is perfect for fall.  You start by spiralizing the butternut squash into long thin spirals. Then you pulse it a few times in a food processor to make the perfect little rice-like pieces. (My friend Ali at has a helpful how-to-video ...

Silk Gone Savory + {Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup}

At any given moment, I usually have 3 - 4 different kinds of Silk almondmilk in my fridge: Vanilla Unsweetened, Dark Chocolate, Protein + Fiber Original, and Almond/Coconut Blend.  When I first started using almondmilk, it was always in sweet scenarios -- in a breakfast smoothie, in muffins, in brownies, in cobbler, in pie etc... the vanilla flavor was my go-to. But when I started partnering with Silk on a regular basis, I made it my goal to add more savory recipes to my repertoire. Almondmilk is so versatile ...

Simple Fall Cocktail: {Carrot Apple Sangria}

I had an idea for a sangria made with fresh juice. So I did what no food blogger wants to do... I googled. And to my surprise, there were zero matching google results. ZERO. Which meant one of two things: either I was a culinary genius with an actual fresh idea (very rare in the food blogging world) OR it was going to taste awful, LOL. Luckily for me, the recipe was amazing and really should catch on as a new "thing" in my humble opinion. So, without further ado... ... Read more » about Simple Fall Cocktail: {Carrot Apple Sangria}

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins: dairy-free & delish

It's time to give in, folks:  to the craving of all things pumpkin! And not just pumpkin "flavored" things like the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte that doesn't contain any actual pumpkin, but the real deal, 100% pumpkin puree. This time of year I put it in everything: pancakes, muffins, chili, cranberry relish, and yes of course... pie. I decided this year I needed to up the pumpkin ante ...

Embracing Fall + {Autumn Harvest Chili}

What's not to love about fall (or autumn, as I prefer to call it)? From pumpkin lattes and every pumpkin baked good imaginable, to the start of football season, cozy sweaters and designer boots, caramel apples, hot cider, the beautiful colored foliage, hayrides and the crisp cooler weather, autumn is all about comfort and warmth! It's time to pull out that fleece jacket from the closet, bring that quilted blanket to the football game, and eat a big bowl of chili. ... Read more » about Embracing Fall + {Autumn Harvest Chili}
