This healthier dessert is gluten free, Paleo-friendly, and refined sugar free.We’re officially into September. How’d we already get this far into 2016? It feels like a few weeks ago we were ringing in the new year, wondering how 2015 passed so quickly. And now, a new school year is beginning (without me), I’m about to turn 23, and I’ve been graduated from college for over a year. Blah. Things are weird.

Also, what is UP with grocery stores already having Halloween candy out? I refuse to go there when it’s still two month away. Let’s stay stuck in summer for just a teeeensy bit longer. Agreed? [Read more…]

Happy Friday! Another summer weekend is upon us, and I hope you’ll be spending it well! Particularly, enjoying the sunshine and hopefully some delicious baked goods, starring some of summer’s best produce. My summer fruit obsession is continuing strong, and this blueberry nectarine pie is definitely an appropriate representation of that.

Is it just me, or are nectarines a little underrated? Especially in the baking world! You see peaches as the star of so many different recipes, but nectarines are barely ever used. I think that’s a grave mistake, because nectarines are definitely one of my favorites for as long as I can get my hands on them.  [Read more…]

This summer has been a busy one for me, with moving and traveling, but it feels like it’s flown by in an instant.

Thankfully, living in San Diego now, summer lasts for a good part of the year. I can look forward to beach days and warm weather for at least a few more months. Unfortunately, the fresh produce that’s so abundant right now doesn’t last for the next couple months, so I need to take full advantage of it while it’s still around. [Read more…]

This Blueberry Skillet Cookie is a cross between a gooey skillet cookie and a bubbly blueberry cobbler! This recipe is gluten-free, Paleo and refined sugar free and makes just enough to share.I’m seriously going nutty over all the incredible fruit and vegetables around this time of year. I keep buying all of these incredible peaches, juicy watermelons and flavorful plums with the intention of making all these recipes I have in my head and scribbled on my notepads, and then they end up in my stomach before they end up in a recipe – I just can’t resist.

Fruit in San Diego is irresistible this time of year, and this week at the farmer’s market, I couldn’t keep my hands off the berries and the oh so beautiful heirloom tomatoes. Working with fabulous produce makes baking so much more fun – everything is better when the produce is high quality and super flavorful on it’s own. [Read more…]

This Blackberry + Blueberry Cobbler is healthy enough for breakfast, but sweet + delicious enough to be dessert! These gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan cobblers have a crisp and gooey topping.

This Blackberry + Blueberry Cobbler is healthy enough for breakfast, but sweet + delicious enough to be dessert! These gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan cobblers have a crisp and gooey topping.I haven’t dabbled in cobblers too much. In fact, this is somehow the first time I’ve ever posted a cobbler recipe on this site. What I have been doing for the past five years?!

I think for a while I just assumed cobbler was similar enough to a crisp or crumble and never needed too much individual exploring, because crisps had already earned top spot on my favorite dessert list. And logically, that should have earned it a place on my list of things to try long ago. [Read more…]

This easy overnight oat recipe tastes like blueberry muffins and can be served cool or warm.The past few days have been unseasonably hot here in Seattle, with the temperature cracking the 80s earlier in the week, and it’s luckily stayed in the realm of sundress weather. Being able to photograph on my patio without the need for two jackets and a scarf has been a blessing, and my body is thankful for the extra dose of vitamin D it’s getting from my long daily walks to soak up the sun.

Seattle transforms during the spring and summer, turning from the land of rain and gloom into a sunshine-y, blue skied place with lots of glimmering water and pale locals trying to catch a tan while the sun hangs around ever so briefly. I don’t think summer is here quite yet, as the forecast is predicting a weekend full of rain, but the teases of summer have definitely infected the atmosphere up here. [Read more…]

This easy recipe comes together quickly and only uses one bowl.Updated March 2016: I decided that this post deserved to be revitalized with some new pictures and new love! It’s a celebrated and delicious recipe that the previous pictures didn’t do justice to. I left the story and post the same as when it was originally posted way back in April 2013! I hope you enjoy these secretly-vegan muffins. :)

These muffins were a total accident, that turned out SO amazingly. I was planning on making regular blueberry muffins when I realized two things:

A) The carton of blueberries I bought was on the verge of going bad,

B) I had never shared my favorite blueberry muffins on here!

It's baked in a skillet and served with whipped cinnamon honey butter.Hi, I’m back with more cornbread goodness. I know, if you follow the happenings around here, I brought you these green chile corn muffins not too long ago, and here I am with another cornbread recipe for you.

But this one is so different from those…I couldn’t help sharing both recipes. Where those muffins are totally delicious, they’re also definitely savory: they get their flavor from green chiles, cheddar cheese, and creamed corn. Yum for sure, but sometimes you want cornbread with a sweet edge.
