Beach Vacation + {Fudgy Mocha Mint Brownies}

We just got back from our beach vacation. After we swept the last bit of sand out of the truck (yes, we were crazy and drove there...in.one.day... remind me never to do that again!!!!). rewashed all the clothes that we had just washed the day before (because for some reason they just smelled stale), and put all the newly purchased beach toys into the sand box, we had a few moments to reminisce. Babycakes absolutely fell in love with the beach! ... Read more » about Beach Vacation + {Fudgy Mocha Mint Brownies}

Silk Almond Blends + {Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa}

Silk recently came out with a new Almondmilk with Protein + Fiber that I talked about in this post. It was creamy and thick and perfect for savory uses. Remember those amazing Super Greens Mac & Cheese Cups?!?! But today I'm even more excited to share another new Silk product with you: their Unsweetened Almond/Coconut Blend. It has all the same good-for-you ... Read more » about Silk Almond Blends + {Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa}

Healthy 4th of July Dessert: Patriotic Popsicles

They aren't exactly striped as I had originally intended, to mimic the American flag. But, they're still red, white, and blue... so that counts, right?! What I love most about this healthy 4th of July dessert is that it's filled with good-for-you ingredients like almond milk and frozen organic fruit... things you want your kids eating anyway! No weird preservatives. No pesticides. No carrageenan. No corn syrup. ... Read more » about Healthy 4th of July Dessert: Patriotic Popsicles

5 Other Bloggers' Recipes: Tested, Approved, & Loved

So I sort of not-so-eloquently announced last night on Facebook that I'm going dairy-free. I have cut out all dairy for the past month (more on that soon!!) and the epiphany came when I cheated this week and had some delicious, organic, veggie pizza topped with decadent cheese that was so graciously provided to the staff at our school as a thank you for our hard work this year. ...

Creamy (Vegan) Red Pepper Alfredo over Zoodles

I honestly have never liked zucchini. I hate how mushy it gets, and the flavor really isn't anything to write home about. The worst is... that pile of zucchini and yellow squash chunks some restaurants spoon onto your plate as a side of veggies. Seriously? That's the best you've got?! Eww. Eww. Eww. BUT, my opinion of zucchini was drastically change by a certain new kitchen tool: the spiralizer. ... Read more » about Creamy (Vegan) Red Pepper Alfredo over Zoodles

The Best Vegan Potato Salad: Perfect for any Picnic!

I love May. School is almost over. The weather is actually trying to get warm.  It's finally nice enough to start grilling (and eating) outside, and we can soak up some much needed sunshine. Did I mention that we got a foot and a half of snow on Mother's Day?!?! And I am all about picnics and the backyard barbeque spread: burgers, potato salad, watermelon, corn on the cob, baked beans, and chips!! ...

Silk Almondmilk + {Vegan Banana Nut Muffins}

You may (or may not) have noticed that a LOT of my recipes use almondmilk. When Babycakes was born I made the conscious decision that after a year of breast-feeding, her primary "milk" would be almondmilk, not cows' milk. I also never gave her rice cereal, but that's a whole different story!
