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....

Flourless Blondies a la Ambitious Kitchen

Flourless Chickpea Blondies

I’m just gonna go ahead and say it. These blondies are freakin’ amazing. There is no need to beat around the bush or to build them up and taunt you. Simply put, these are the best “healthy” dessert I’ve had in a really long time. Better than the flourless brownies. Better than the chocamole (and y’all know how I feel about that). I’ve already made 2 batches. In 4 days. And The Hubster (who hates chocolate) finds them to be as irresistible as I do. Just do yourself a favor and make sure to always keep the ingredients on hand. I plan to. Because I also plan to bring these...

Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Coconut Bites

Pupkin Truffles (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nightshade Free, Vegan) | Emily Levenson

There is something that happens every year around September. It starts out innocently at first, with a few recipes here and there. And then turns into an all out rampage, with everyone trying to one-up the other for the best flavor combination one could dream up. What am I talking about? Pumpkin season, of course. And while I’m all for pumpkin flavored things (I prefer things like Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Flax Granola), there is such a thing as taking it too far (I’m talking to you Pringles and Extra). So when I stumbled upon this recipe for Pumpkin Truffles, I kind of knew it was going to blow up....

Maple Pecan Cupcakes

maple pecan cupcakes

Did you watch the Grammy’s on Sunday night? I did. And was taken by how much of a production it was this year. From the opening number by Taylor Swift (awesome, by the way) to the torrential downpour on stage for fun.’s number (seriously, why would you do that on purpose) all the way through to the final performance with LL and friends. A. total. production. PSβ€”how about those jewel adorned nails by Miranda Lambert?! You know what doesn’t have to be a production? Cooking. Or baking, for that matter. Though, with me baking usually turns into a production of epic proportions. Not for these cupcakes. Even the idea seemed...

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe came as the result of a botched attempt (see above) at making something that turned into something infinitely better as a result. It all started with a clothing swap and the need to bring a tasty treat. It ended with cookie carnage, fab new (to me) clothing, and a cookie resurrection. Plus, a bit of smartassery and anxiety thrown in for good measure. (Baking is so not my thing.) The main problem? Trying to make vegan caramel chews without any of the proper ingredients. You know, things like candy thermometers, light corn syrup, and MimicCreme (which I just learned is a thing). Of course my initial attempt at...
