Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone who cooks with avocado understands the plight of trying to guess the perfect ripeness. You can buy them at almost-perfection and hope for the best, or go from green and wait for the day when they feel just right. More often than not, I overshoot and wait too long, leaving me with a bowlful… Continue reading Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies

How To Make Foolproof Vegetarian Quiche

Quiche is one of the ultimate brunch foods. It’s pretty healthy. There’s no shortage of fat (cream and cheese) and I wasn’t very light handed with the salt on this one either.

Technically I think the “national” part is referring to the States, but… Continue reading Ice Cream Sandwiches

This recipe is very flexible to your personal tastes and takes minimal effort—just pop it in the oven  and shift it around once in a while. I’ve made other granolas with pumpkin and walnuts and one with mango, but this time around I… Continue reading Super Seedy Granola

Flourless Banana-Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins

This is a seriously healthy muffin (besides the chocolate chips, but you gotta live a little). Only a quarter cup of coconut sugar for the entire batch. Flourless. Greek yogurt. Hemp. All good things. Not like one of those muffins that is actually a cupcake disguised as breakfast—you’re not fooling me, Starbucks. These didn’t rise… Continue reading Flourless Banana-Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins
