Root Beer Cake

We love root beer at our house, but not regular refined-sugar laden root beer. We love Zevia ginger root-beer. It has such a delicious root beer taste with a bit of a ginger kick. This cake gets a ‘lift’ from the root beer. It is also rich, dark, moist, and decadent. As you can see, […]

Banana Bundt Cake with Chocolate Icing

I think my family might just be part monkey. We ADORE bananas at our house. We eat them with breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and desserts. I always have bananas in my fruit bowl at some stage of sweetness – when they get speckled brown is when I begin to bake. Did you know that you […]

It is the Ultimate Chocolate Cake! (in my humble, dessert loving opinion) This rich, chocolate cake is topped with a dark […]

Zucchini Bread

I love zucchini season. It’s always fun when neighbors leave bags of zucchini on my doorstep because they have so many! Zucchini has always been one of my favorite vegetables. It is so versatile in its cooking application – you can steam it, sauté it, make noodles out of it, bake with it…it’s so fun! […]

Zucchini Brownies

Brownies! Who doesn’t love a rich, chocolate brownie?!! These little gems are made with zucchini. My kids told me this is the best zucchini they have ever eaten….hmmm, I need to work on some more zucchini recipes! The zucchini gives these brownies a moist texture AND some nutrition. Zucchini is low in calories, (thank goodness […]

Baja Style Plant-Based Tacos

It doesn’t have to be ‘Taco Tuesday‘ at our house to have tacos. In fact, I think my family would be happy with tacos almost every night of the week! I enjoy making tacos with new twists – like this one. This is my take on a plant-based “fish” taco. I must admit that I […]

No Bake Peanut Butter Quinoa Cups

I have very fond childhood memory regarding peanut butter cups. My grandmother would always carry a package of peanut butter cups in her purse. I always made sure to sit by her first and be really good so that she would bestow the gift of a peanut butter cup to me. It worked! I think […]
