Holiday Thumbprint Cookies

Who doesn’t enjoy jammy cookies? Like, seriously. Soft and slightly chewy- they melt-in-your-mouth and make you quickly engulf the edges so you can get to the joyous jam-filled middle. And here’s the best part; the jam-filled middle is highly customizable; I filled mine sticky and sweet bumbleberry jam- AKA just a fancy name for a combination of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. But it’s oh so good!

Flourless Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

With muffins, you get what you put in. These are healthy, wholesome- but don’t taste it one bit. That’s the best kind of baked good situation. That’s exactly the kind of baked good situation you want to be in. They’re made with all good things like; certified gluten-free oats, organic pumpkin puree, dairy free chocolate chips, pasture raised eggs etc. But hey, the finished product tastes both; decadent and enjoyable. You want a second one the moment you take a bite off the first.

Think of them essentially as glorified “crostini”.

This unassuming seasonal veg has the capacity to kill it in the fry department. It has the veg-powered ability to create crispy wedges that can be seasoned any way you like and give you that hearty/home-style feel you crave.

Maple Pecan Pie Bars

Butter tarts, pecan tarts, anything tarts- they all have a place in ma’ heart. I definitely don’t discriminate. Most importantly; I have a well-known penchant for so-called “Fall Treats”. You see, Fall Treats sort of exist in a league of their own. A-L-S-O, they have pretty distinct ingredients like; apples, pecans, pumpkin, maple, & caramel.… Continue reading Maple Pecan Pie Bars

An Easy and Delicious Shakshouka

Is there anything better than a 15-minute prep time brunch or dinner that’s as cozy & hearty as Shakshouka? Picture; perfectly cooked eggs in a thick tomato ragú that still boast a runny yolk. Paired with perfectly crusty sourdough bread or fresh rye slices for delirious dipping. Try this with gluten free garlic bread or top the shakshouka with crumbled feta and allow it to melt!
