Classic Hummus

I think it’s Saturday, but I could be wrong. Minnesota’s shelter-in-place order went into effect yesterday at midnight, but Matt and I haven’t really left for anything other than grocery pickups and doctors appointments for the past two weeks. All this time around the house has me reaching for snacks around the clock, not to…

Pecan Pie Energy Bites

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of February! This month has flown by, thank goodness, because that means Spring is right around the corner. You know what the end of February also means? Girl Scout Cookies. I am waiting for our neighbor to deliver them any minute now. In preparation for said Girl Scout…

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chickpea Curry

This time of year has me craving comforting meals and pulling out the crock pot at least once a week. This sweet potato chickpea curry just happens to be the perfect one pot meal! Chop it all up, throw it in the slow cooker, and forget about it. When it’s done cooking, you will have…

Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Matt and I are expecting our first baby – YAY! – so we took a mini-babymoon trip to Minneapolis this past weekend. Our trip was heavily focused on all things food since wine-ing is currently out of the picture, and no complaints here! We ate our way through Minneapolis, enjoying the variety of restaurants and…

Quick Pickled Red Onions

I loooooove vinegar- anything sour, really. So when I received some beautiful, large Weck jars as a wedding shower gift last year, I learned how to “quick” pickle vegetables and haven’t needed store-bought since! I love knowing exactly what goes into them, especially because it’s hard to find them without added sugar. I have found that…

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I thought everyone would be over butternut squash by this point, but I was wrong! I took a poll on my Instagram page last week to decide between Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta and butternut squash soup, and it resulted in a tie. Since I couldn’t possibly let half of you down, here’s the recipe for…

Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta (Vegan & GF)

I’ve been craving mac and cheese for about 2 years now. Sad, I know. But I’ve decided that the effects cheese and milk have on my system aren’t worth the temporary satisfaction of a hot, steamy, comforting, cheesy, melty, delicious bowl of mac and cheese. That’s what I keep telling myself, anyways. However, I recently…

Apple Cobbler (GF)

My friend Jillian and I have been avoiding gluten and refined sugar for 3 weeks now in an effort to get our eating habits back on track, and the goal was to make it to Halloween. I’ll say it’s been a pretty valiant effort, despite the beer (or two) I’ve had along the way, and…

Spicy Squash Hummus

Last week, our friend Kelly brought over a Hubbard squash fresh from her family’s farm in Wisconsin, effectively adding to my No Squash Left Behind Challenge. It had a beautiful bright orange bumpy skin, and looked like a sweet potato/pumpkin hybrid. Kelly mentioned Hubbard squash is best mashed, and I remembered a recipe from the…

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

I will start by saying that this recipe is magical because it’s the ONLY way my husband will consider eating brussels sprouts. Yes, he is a grown man. When we met, Matt convinced me that he wasn’t a picky eater, but as the years went on, it becameĀ  clear to me that this was just…
