Pumpkin Brownies (Gluten Free, Vegan)

Pumpkin Brownies | gluten free, dairy free, nightshade free, egg free, vegan

It’s fall and that means pumpkin is finding it’s way into everything, including these dairy free, grain free, vegan pumpkin brownies. Your taste buds will thank you for being so damn festive.Β  IΒ love brownies. As in LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. brownies. They are perhaps one of the greatest food inventions ever. The gooey chocolately awesomeness just cannot be replicated. Chocolate cake is great, but it’s NOT brownies. Chocolate mousse? Also great. Also not brownies. Chocolate cookies? Yeah. SO not brownies....

Strawberry-Peach Sorbet

Strawberry Peach Sorbet

Sorbet: God’s gift to those who cannot (or chose not) to have dairy. I have never been a huge fan of ice cream. It’s always made me somewhat sick, thanks to the dairy. So it’s never been a top priority for me. As a result, I’ve generally felt left out in the summer when everyone makes the obligatory trip to get ice cream. Most times I just have to sit and watch everyone else indulge. Occasionally I’m lucky enough to have one or two (if I’m really lucky) flavors of sorbet to choose from. Which is great if you’re feeling like lemon sorbet....

Homemade Granola Bars (Gluten Free)

oatmeal raisin granola bars

I’m not sure when I decided that I wanted to try my hand at granola bars. It could have been when I was at the grocery store debating whether it was worth the money. Or at the fact that they disappear in our house in seconds flat. OR that I have a hard time finding ones that are actually safe and edible for me. Whatever the reasoning was, I was in. And I have to say that this first attempt was fairly good. They are a little too sweet for my taste (which is saying something). But overall, they have a nice chew to them and have a good ratio...

Sweet Potato Brownies

Apparently the brownie sampling I did a few weeks back has wet my whistle for all things brownie. And when I came across a healthy brownie recipe, I knew it had to be attempted. A couple points: We used carob powder instead of cocoa powder. Not sure if that affected the outcome. I didn’t have any instant coffee in the house. Omitting it probably altered the taste…a lot. The Hubster hated them. Though, to be fair, he hates chocolate. They took a lot longer to cook than expected. I would boil the sweet potato next time instead of baking. Took a loooong time in the oven. And I think I...

Blueberry-Lemon Scones

Looking for the perfect scone recipe? This. Is. It. No, seriously. This recipe is so damn good that you will never ever want to share it with anyone else so long as you have a stomach and one free hand to fend them off with. It’s so good, that I brought an extra one with me to share with a friend and ended up eating it myself. What? She took waaay to long. And I was hungry. Consider yourself warned. And be prepared to make a double batch. Or hide them so you have a few more for yourself. Yields 10Recipe: Blueberry-Lemon SconesBlueberry-Lemon Scones10 minPrep Time 25 minCook Time 35...
