Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I am here to tell you I am unapologetically posting a pumpkin recipe on the first official day of autumn.  Does this make me a sterotype?  Probably, but I don’t care!! Ha!! Man, it feels good to say that.  I have been called “quirky” for most of my life.  I’m not sure its always in

I have smoothies for breakfast a lot.  Like, for the most part I have a smoothie every morning.  Always.  But I realized I haven’t been showing the love to oatmeal.  And oatmeal deserves some love! Last Saturday I was like “let’s do something crazy for breakfast! its the weekend!!”  In my head I was picturing

Breakfast Berry Salad (with Cinnamon Oat “Croutons”)

While some food trends come and go, I think there are a few that I am likely to stick with.  Like my obsession with kale and green smoothies.  And my love affair with my Vitamix.  (Sometimes I do yoga, remove my makeup with coconut oil, drink my smoothie and think about how I might be

I think I can finally convince even non believers that salad for breakfast is where it’s at. I am seriously hooked on this salad.  I am on kind of a raisin kick right now (it took me a while to get over the inner child that cringed at raisin things, even though I do still

Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

What I love maybe the most about this time of the year is snuggling up with hot beverages.  Hot tea, the occasional cup of coffee, and hot chocolate.  Oh hot chocolate.  Is there a more perfect drink? And I have been all about Christmas movies (it feels like my TV stays on ABC Family the

Sometimes I sneak off to my happy place.  Last week was one of those times. I swear I don’t go that often, and since I was just there in October it probably seems like I go a lot.  I was just the luckiest this year because hubby had a conference a couple weeks before our

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free, Vegan Option)

Halloween is over, but I am not over the whole pumpkin thing yet.   Can we make a pact to eat as much pumpkin related foods until Thanksgiving?  By that time I assume we will be so sick of it that we can give them up cold turkey until next year. Speaking of Halloween, I

Homemade Pumpkin Creamer (vegan)

At the first sign of fall I am all over my two favorite things: pumpkin anything/everything, and tea.  A cup of hot tea on a crisp morning is one of those things that makes me genuinely smile, and feel like I can take on anything that day. I am actually not really a morning person.

Quinoa Berry Breakfast Salad

Quinoa Berry Breakfast Salad

This time of the year has many wonderful reasons to love it.  Beach season, grilling, cute dresses!!  But perhaps my favorite is the berries.  Well the produce in general right now is awesome, but I have a big crush on fruit right now.  Between the strawberries, blueberries, and the cherries.  Oh the cherries!!  I think
