Cinnamon Chickpea Bites (AKA The Babe’s new favorite snack)

Cinnamon Chickpea Bites | gluten free, dairy free, nightshade free

Spice things up this fall with these sinfully good cinnamon chickpea bites. Toddlers love them. Adults love them. And no one is the wiser that these bad boys are actually good for you. The Babe is still obsessed with chickpea bites. And I’m still looking for ways to switch them up so she’s not eating the same thing every single day for the rest of her life. So far, we’ve done chocolate chip chickpea bites and peanut butter chocolate chickpea bites. And while I would have been satisfied having either of those two options for the rest of my life, I felt like I owe it to The Babe to try something new. Which is how...

Zucchini Banana Bread (Gluten Free, Nightshade Free, Dairy Free)

Zucchini Bread | gluten free, dairy free, nightshade free, and delicious

Sometimes you just get a hankering for zucchini banana bread. And sometimes, you just have to eat an entire loaf of (gluten free, dairy free, and nightshade free) zucchini banana bread all by yourself. In one sitting. Because it’s that good.  Sometimes you just get a hankering for zucchini bread. Sometimes, it comes right after being gifted 5 of the most massive zucchinis you’ve ever seen. Sometimes, you get so excited about said zucchini’s that you make a boatload of zucchini fritters and have to run out to the store and buy 5 more just so that you can make this zucchini banana bread. And sometimes, you just have to...

Apple, Sweet Potato, and Chicken Sausage Hash

Apple, Sweet Potato, and Chicken Sausage Breakfast Hash | Nightshade Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

With all of my new dietary restrictions in place, breakfast has been a bit of a challenge for me. And by challenge, I mean I have had to stop eating bread and begin thinking outside of the proverbial breadbox. Which is where this beautiful Apple, Sweet Potato and Chicken Sausage Hash came from. Outside of that proverbial breadbox. And outside of my comfort zone. This breakfast is a bit more time intensive than I’m used to, requiring me to actually peel and chop ingredients versus pulling it from the bag and turning the toaster on. It’s also not something I would naturally be inclined to throw together. Yes, I like apple, sweet potatoes, and...

6 Delicious Mini Muffins You Should Make Right Now

If you’ve been following me on Instagram,  you know that I’ve become obsessed with mini muffins. They are super easy to make. Take maybe 12 minutes a batch to cook. And are the perfect snack for little toddler hands to grab and devour. They also happen to be perfect little bite-size snacks for the grown-ups. (If you can call us that.) 1: Baked French Toast Muffins from Averie Cooks We love french toast in our house. The Hubster is the resident french toast maker; whipping up delightful batch after delightful batch, while I tend to burn it or undercook it. But THESE baked french toast muffins take all the guess work out and...

Maple Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal

Maple Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal | emilylevenson.com

It seems like the second September hits, Fall is the only thing on everyone’s brain. Pumpkin flavored everything becomes readily available. Halloween candy starts proliferating the shelves. And it’s only a matter of time before the very first Christmas something or other will appear on the shelves. (I shudder just thinking about it.) For me, fall begins to usher in more hearty meals like soups, chili’s, and baked oatmeals. I seriously love baked oatmeal because of how easy it is to whip up a healthy breakfast without having to stand over the stove cooking it. Between eggs and stove-top oatmeal, I’ve been craving a bit more simplicity in our morning...
