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. Equally important is the texture which is why the process of mixing (or rather minimizing mixing!) is crucial.  The fun part about this much healthier recipe is that we are still using the same simple method and short ingredient list, just making a […]

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. And there’s no shortage of chocolate hazelnuts desserts on the web (I mean hello Vegan Nutella Cinnamon Rolls!) Many European pastries also combine this delightful combo that many of us adore. Personally, I tend to gravitate toward pecans, but every now and then I chop some hazelnuts and use them to garnish […]

Better-For-Ya Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

By Ashley | Coffee

I am typically not one to make copycat recipes but this fun take on cold brew reallyyy has stolen my heart.  My challenge for National Coffee Day this year was to recreate Starbucks’ newest 2019 pumpkin drink: Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. More coffee forward than a PSL, made with real pumpkin, and served in a “sippy” cup in order to experience the sweet frothy cream on top – I will admit it’s one of the […]

Quick + Easy Vegan Brassica Caesar Salad

By Ashley | Entree , Recipes , Salad

I know you’re all too familiar with Caesar, but Brassica-whattt??? Brassica literally just refers to the cabbage family of veggies (cauliflower,  kale, cabbage, arugula, Brussel sprouts, etc) also called cruciferous vegetables. It may sound fancy but believe me – this is one of my quickest, easiest recipes to date! Why did I change up the lettuce component here?? Well, we’ve all eaten our fair share of romaine and though I won’t call it “bad” – […]
