PB & J Cookies

Last week I made that delicious peanut butter dip (click here to see that) and here I am again with another nutty recipe. I love peanut butter so much, I could eat it every day without getting sick of it. Today I have made these adorable jam cookies! I saw this recipe on instagram (link…

Nutty Energy Bites (Recipe Redo)

I’m not a big fan of energy bars, but when I’m in a pinch, I love eating Larabars (not sponsored, they’re just my fave). They’re all natural and have no added sugars so they’re super healthy. Today, I made my own version of little larabar bites. I actually tried making a similar recipe back in…

Almond Blondies

Happy Monday. Starting the week with a sweet post seems like a good thing to do. My friend made these blondies the other day and I had to make them as well. They are packed with toasted chopped almonds, a little almond extract and then more whole almonds for a pretty design and extra crunch….

Peanut Butter Apple Rings

If you like ants on a log (celery with peanut butter and raisins/craisins), you will love these apple rings. I’ve taken that classic childhood snack that I’m sure most people have eaten, and turned it into a sweeter/dessert version. This might be one of the easiest snacks to ever exist. The name pretty much says…

Refrigerator Nut Cookies

Every once in a while, I like to try new recipes to make on Passover. These cookies were the new recipe this year. The recipe itself is pretty old – it’s from a cookbook called Second Helpings Please, which is a well known Jewish cookbook written by a well known Canadian, Norene Gilletz. My mom…

Nutty Energy Bites

I’ve been trying to make something interesting almost every day. Cooking has always been a great outlet for my creativity and energy, and I’m using my extra time at home to make more special things. If you saw my crackers the other day (link here), those were really fun and can’t wait to make them…

Recipe #42: Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffing vegetables is such a great meal idea. You can stuff potatoes, peppers, zucchini, tomatoes and onions. So there are lots of choices for the vessel and even more for the filling. You can use ground meat, cheeses, more veggies, grains, rice. You can even mix and match items. If you would like some inspiration,…

Recipe #38: Sun-Dried Tomato Fettuccine Alfredo with Spinach

I love fettuccine alfredo. It’s just so creamy and rich and you feel guilty eating it but you don’t care because it’s delicious. I hope I’m not the only one in that boat πŸ˜› But when I saw this recipe I was intrigued because it’s dairy free! Well it calls for a sprinkle of parmesan…

Recipe #28: Easy Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I don’t think I have ever made a carrot cake but after making this one, I will definitely be making it again. If you are looking for a beginner recipe, this is it. What makes it even better is the cream cheese frosting. Yum. It’s also one of those cakes that seems like it can’t…

Recipe #24: Bourbon Maple Candied Pecans

I can’t believe the year is coming the end soon, October sort of flew by. I am now starting month #3 of my Love Real Food cooking challenge (click here to see all posts in this series). I’m loving this cookbook and the recipes are not disappointing me. I know I’m only about 1/4 through…
