Wholesome Oatmeal Pancakes + Maple Peanut Butter Spread

Wholesome Oatmeal Pancakes + Maple Peanut Butter Spread

{scroll through me!} These dense and hearty pancakes are full of oats, spelt flour, flax and sunflower seeds. Hello fiber! Instead of syrup, I used melted peanut butter mixed with maple syrup to balance out the otherwise high sugar content. I love having pancakes for...

Peach & Cherry Hand Pies with Ricotta, Basil and Lemon Zest

Summer fruits are the best fruits. Berries, stone fruit, watermelon. They're all so sweet and juicy and quenching. Perhaps the blistering heat and humidity make them all the more enjoyable. Either way, I am grateful. These little hand pies are perfect as an on the go...

Raspberry Filled Dark Chocolate Squares

It's that time of the month again. And no I don't mean THAT time of the month. Although I do love me some chocolate during THAT time, I'm talking about Recipe Redux time. The healthy food blogger challenge when we're given a topic and sent into our kitchens to see...

Homemade Fig Newtons

Homemade Fig Newtons

I've been a fan of the fig newton since I was a child. I would buy the Nabisco brand here and there growing up, but more recently, I've been getting them from the bulk section of Whole Foods. God they're good. However, I've been spending a pretty penny on the Whole...

Smokey Turmeric Egg Salad

Smokey Turmeric Egg Salad

Smokey flavors bring to mind campfires, and feelings of warmth and familiarity. Even though I love all these things, I'm not one to cook with smoke. I worry that a smokey flavor will be too overpowering and that I'll completely ruin the dish. Not my most optimistic...

Beet Hummus

Beet Hummus

Have you noticed beet hummus in stores yet? It seems to be popping up ever so discretely; or as discrete as magenta-colored hummus can be. I've only seen it in two stores round these parts and it doesn't seem to be selling like hotcakes. I wonder if it's the vibrant...
