Grilled Cantaloupe Prosciutto Skewers

Everybody loves a good barbecue… but as a girl who doesn’t eat buns, I get a little tired of the hot dogs and burgers. Sure, I can throw an organic sausage on a plate with a heaping mound of dairy free coleslaw and call it a day.  But, I often find myself wanting something a…

Chocolate Avocado Mousse with Mixed Berries

One of my favorite things to cook used to be custard. It is so rich, creamy and delicious yet deceptively easy to make.  However, in the new world of clean eating, I find myself yearning for a healthier version of creamy goodness for dessert. A version of custard free of sugar and cream and filled with…

Raise your hand if you ever made breakfast in bed for Mom on Mother’s Day! …Me. Me! I guess though, if we’re being honest, it wasn’t really me who made the breakfasts in bed. It was more me and bro making a huge mess in the kitchen while Dad made real breakfast in bed. At least…

Creamy Avocado Cilantro Sauce

Everyone knows the struggle of finding a perfectly ripe avocado.

Simple 5 Ingredient Egg Salad Kale Wraps

Growing up we only had egg salad sandwiches once a year, and that was obviously after the Easter Bunny dumped a ridiculous amount of hard-boiled eggs into our home. Don’t get me wrong, they are delicious. They just aren’t something I really crave on the daily. It probably has something to do with the fact that…

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs – Make your Own Food Dyes with Food!

I feel like food dye is most commonly found in frosting, and I just don’t make that much frosting. I’m gonna go ahead and call that a good thing, but ever since I saw a food network show with blueberry dyed frosting, I’ve been dying to try it. Plus, now that I’ve detoxed my life and cut…
