It’s been a while since I posted a grain-free recipe and I knew I wanted it to involve chocolate and fluffy cake. I decided on a chocolate chip cookie and cake donut mash-up with the addition of my favorite floral flavor – lavender!  We all love a nostalgic Chocolate Chip Cookie and fresh donuts are equally irresistible so let’s enjoy the best of both!

Tiramisu Torte

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

So I dreamt up this torte with more firm and distinct layers that also cuts and photographs so well! Each […]

Nourishing Flaky Breakfast Scones

By Ashley | Breakfast , Recipes

An amazing scone requires only a handful of ingredients which is why the quality and ratio of ingredients is so vital! Scones are all about the: butter, flour, cream/buttermilk, and optional flavorings.

Heavenly Hazelnut Cookies (GF, Vegan, Oil-Free)

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

Years ago, Nutella made us fall in love with the classic hazelnut and chocolate pairing on everything from toast to fruit to pie.

Personally, I tend to gravitate toward pecans, but every now and then I chop some hazelnuts and use them to garnish […]
