Pumpkin Pie

November 23rd, 2016|

Ah, pumpkin pie. One of the greatest inventions on the planet (in my humble opinion). Unfortunately, most pies (and desserts in general) are made with cane sugar which tends to leave me feeling super sick. In which case, I present to you Mr. Pumpkin Pie without cane sugar!

INGREDIENTS

CRUST
1.25 c gluten-free all purpose flour (or regular […]

Lemon Cranberry Sauce

November 21st, 2016|

I’ve never been much of a cranberry sauce person. Little did I know I just needed to make it myself and have it be a little less sweet than most. This tart red baby will make you pucker your lips in sweet, sour love.

INGREDIENTS

1 package (10-12oz) fresh or frozen cranberries
1 lemon, zest and juiced

Thanksgiving Stuffed Acorn Squash

2 carrots – diced ¼”
4 […]

Truffled Cauliflower Potato Mash

November 18th, 2016|

Everyone has a favorite dish at Thanksgiving, right? Mine was and always will be mashed potatoes.

If you love mashed potatoes but also love cauliflower and truffle, then my guess is you’ll […]

Slow Cooked Black Beans

October 6th, 2016|

I LOVE BEANS.
I literally am obsessed with them. Some days when I’m too lazy to cook I will just open a can of beans and eat directly from the can with a spoon. NO SHAME! Needless to say, these black beans are one of my favorite things to make. You can make a huge batch […]
