Garlic Rosemary Quinoa Crackers

Garlic Rosemary Quinoa Crackers - thin, crispy and perfect for dipping | recipe on

The first time I made homemade quinoa crackers, it was a complete disaster. It was right after I went gluten-free and I discovered Mary's Gone Crackers <- which I love. but the price tag? Not so much. Especially when you're a broke post-college gal like me. After looking at the label and reading the ingredients though (p.s. did you know they have quinoa?), they didn't seem too hard to make … [Read more...]

It's on top of  my salads, in wedge (or fry) form, mashed, blended in soups, even into my morning smoothie. If it's a sweet potato, I'm finding a way to … [Read more...]

Gluten-Free Banana Donuts

Almond Flour Banana Donuts made with a Dairy-Free Chocolate Glaze

I woke up this morning with a major hankering for a donut. Mind you, this rarely happens. Donuts aren't really my thing (I much prefer pancakes for breakfast), but they're pretty much Matt's favorite, so when this craving hits I better get to baking. His absolute favorite is a glazed chocolate, but those don't tend to be the healthiest option. So instead, we have my version: baked banana donuts … [Read more...]

Instead, I get out of bed with a smile, grab my coat and boots and head to the park with her. Before the park I go around the corner and pick up a … [Read more...]

Crispy, chewy AND dark chocolate chips? That, my friends, describes my perfect chocolate chip cookie.

Yes, yes, YES! It’s that time of year again. The time of year where we get to break out our chunky knit sweaters, tall boots, and scarves.

The time of year where the days are getting shorter and we’re getting shrouded in darkness earlier and earlier. … [Read more...]

Cheddar Quinoa Biscuits

Gluten-Free Cheddar Quinoa Biscuits

You might be surprised to see a recipe with cheddar in the title. Normally I don’t eat cheddar cheese. You know that. I’ve been avoiding cow dairy for 4+ years now. So, what gives? Well for me, not eating cheddar is kind of a sin since I grew up in Vermont, which is arguably one of the cheddar capitals of the world (we’ll fight Wisconsin for that title any day). But when you’re sensitive to … [Read more...]
