White Chocolate Pumpkin Dip

A lot of Halloween recipes use food dye or colorful, super-processed candy. I avoided all of that by putting this dip in something naturally colorful and festive.

How To Make A Meal Plan

Use this same method at home to thrive using a whole foods diet that won’t break the bank or make you a slave to the stove.

Homemade Honeycomb Gum

It turns out that if you want to get the most bang for your honey-gum-buck, you need to buy "comb honey," not the kind that floats on top of jars of honey.

Salted Caramel Macaroons

We are grain-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, food-coloring-free, and about 75% local and organic. It may have taken us ten years to get here, but we feel amazing, and we are eating really scrumptious foods. One of our favorites is these salted caramel macaroons.

Vegan Double-Chocolate Espresso Zucchini Brownies

What if I told you that you could enjoy a decadent treat this holiday season without any guilt? Yep! Not only are these sinfully delicious but they are also good for you! Packed with protein and veggies, these chocolatey dreams are also vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and grain-free!

Winter Vegetable Soup with Squash, Garbanzo Beans, and Quinoa

This winter vegetable soup was inspired by a recent trip to the farmers market. With tons of local squashes and root vegetables on display, vegetable soup came to mind. I added garbanzo beans and quinoa to make it heartier (and even healthier!), but you can leave those out, or make a few substitutions.

Loaded Pralines

Halloween candy is hard to resist, but when you make it yourself you have complete control over the ingredients.

Celebrate Halloween with Chocolate “Boo” Bark

In a perfect world candy would be made from the best quality ingredients, corners would not be cut, and it could be something to truly be savored and enjoyed. Since the world is not perfect – yet – I make candy that I am happy to eat, and share, because I know it is made with the best ingredients. It is my little rebellion against the junk that is so prevalent on the market.
