This simple recipe is gluten-free & vegan.***2017 Update*** Oh, Blueberry Crisp Tart – you’re a major favorite. Since I first posted this recipe back in 2014, before I started my senior year of college, it’s been very well loved. I get pretty regular feedback on this tart, and I always want to reshare it, but the old photos did NOT do this incredible tart justice.

I took the opportunity of having too many blueberries in the fridge to remake this old favorite and make it look a little prettier :) it got devoured in about 24 hours in my fridge, and I don’t suspect it will last much longer in yours 😉 it’s a must try, for sure. I left the original post below (for nostalgia’s sake), but the recipe is true to the original. Enjoy! [Read more…]

Hi friends! I feel like I’ve been such a slacker lately with getting new posts up, due to a combination of circumstances. I’ve been doing a Whole30, I had a big project I was working on that took up a lot of my time (and stress), and I had an incident last week where I knocked my head on the corner of my nightstand, got a big old bump and bruise, and I’m pretty sure I concussed myself.

I was feeling a little off for a few days after that last one, and didn’t get done any of the work I expected to be done. I’m so sorry! But I’m back with new recipes coming at you this week, and I’m very excited about this one. [Read more…]

I’m going to be straight up about something – overnight oats are usually not my favorite oat preparation. Maybe a weird confession to come at the beginning of a post convincing you to eat these delicious overnight oats? Yes, but these overnight oats convinced me to be an overnight oats lover, so maybe they’ll be your catalyst too.

I totally understand the positive thought behind overnight oats – we want them to be prepped ahead of time and ready to grab and go in the morning. That’s all good and well, but usually the taste just wasn’t all there for me. They ended up a little bland, sometimes not moist enough, and just sort of *bleh*. [Read more…]

I’m back from the Caribbean, and I’m missing it already! After spending a week on a catamaran in the sunshine looking out over the clearest water I’ve ever seen, San Diego’s cloudy day seems a little lackluster.

Let’s be honest though: just about any place seems lackluster in comparison to the British Virgin Islands. It’s truly a piece of paradise. It was a long week packed with activity, but it also flew by in a flash. [Read more…]

I’ve been on a major oatmeal kick recently! Since I did Whole30, my go-to breakfast has changed a bit. I used to eat Greek yogurt with berries and granola pretty much every single morning.

After coming off Whole30 though, I’m realizing that dairy might not be my best friend. It tends to disrupt my stomach, and I’ve been generally feeling better when I avoid dairy. Which is a huge bummer (goodbye ice cream and cheese), but I’m making do so far. [Read more…]

This healthier oatmeal has no added sweetener; it's sweetened entirely with ripe banana and chocolate chunks.For all the oatmeal I eat, baked oatmeal isn’t something that I’ve made too often. To be honest, it’s a method of preparing it that I often forget about…but now that I’ve rediscovered baked oatmeal, with it’s fluffy center and crispy edges, it’s here to stay.

If you’ve never tried baked oatmeal before, you’re going to want to listen up. Baked oatmeal is similar to traditional oatmeal, but it’s made with a few extra ingredients to help it get puffy and browned, and piled into a dish to bake instead of simmering away on the stove.
