I had the honor of cozying up to The One Peaceful World Cookbook by Alex Jack and Sachi Kato (BenBella Books, 2017) and absolutely fell in love. It felt like one of those pivotal moments where a light clicks and you remember the bigger picture. Beyond a cookbook, this book is a guidebook for life. Reminding us to go back to our roots and most importantly to add our heart and soul back into what we do.
Strawberry and vanilla dance on your tongue as you bite into these prookies. Protein Cookies, so you can enjoy one with your coffee after yoga. Well, I did. These are Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies infused with vanilla protein powder, strawberry chia jam within the batter and a generous portion smack dab in the center. They have added cranberries for an extra chewy consistency when you bite in.
Learn how to make vegan & gluten-free Pumpkin Scones with a generous creamy white frosting glaze, and a spiced pumpkin glaze drizzled on top of that. The Pumpkin Scone from Starbucks was my design inspiration and these are beyond tasty, irresistibly good. I'll show you two varieties, one with an all-purpose gluten-free flour base and another with an oat-flour base. Special thank you to Liv Avatar for requesting these. Watch how to make them & stay 'til the end to see our special guests. :)
5 Ingredients until you are stuffing, roasting and soon eating. This is a staple in our home, a true household favorite that we enjoy often. Out of all the peppers, the poblano pepper is my absolute favorite pepper to stuff. The natural flavor is so good, I could practically just eat the pepper. It makes the most wonderful base and compliments the other 4 ingrdients in the most magical way.
This weekend the time slipped away and before I knew it, the afternoon was upon us. I pulled out some fresh veggies from the fridge and thought, I better get my camera out and record this because it is going to be good! A beautiful array of colors filled my cutting board and a few ideas crept in after my meditaiton. Those are the best!
Have the taste and aroma of apple pie compacted into a muffin with warm apple chunks inside, a crisp steusel on top and a sweet glaze on top. If I had a little bakery, you could find these in the fall as a house classic. These are truly unbelievable, even if you don't like apple pie, you may be surprised how well you like these.
Grab a spoon and drizzle this frosting glaze on top of your favorite treats. This is featured on the Vegan Apple Pie Spiced Muffins with Streusel & Glaze. Add it to nearly any dessert, use it as a fruit dip at a party, maybe even just grab a spoonful if you are inclined. Generally, a glaze consists of 1 1/2 cup+ confectioners sugar whereas this only uses 1/4 cup of sweetener. You could add more or less to your taste preference but I found this to be a delicious sweet spot. You'll love how smooth, silky and creamy it is. It's truly magnificent. Enjoy!
You guys! This happened one late night when Gerald brought me a big batch of fresh nopales. At first they were nopales rellanos and then the morphed into these enchiladas or as Gerald loves to call them Nopalitos.
Grab some chips because I got the dip! Vegan Queso! It'll have you sayin' "it's nacho cheese, it's my cheese". Slather it on your favorite dishes and watch as it melts fantastically and makes a beautiful addition to your meal. It's also packed with flavor. I have a girlfriend who is allergic to nuts so nut-free options like these are great to have on hand.
Back to school is in full swing! I can't help but notice all my friend's kids going back to school, with their cool new backpacks, new clothes and big smiles. One question that may come up is do I pack a lunch or participate in the school lunch program? Maybe you do a mixture of both like my mom did growing up. Either way, I have a fun new lunch your little one may love.
