Dreamsicle Smoothie

By Ashley | Breakfast , Chilled Beverage , Recipes , Smoothie

I have never understood why clementines are only available in huge bags – who can finish a 2 lb. bag in a reasonable time period? Well, I was bound a determined to do so. I added this delicious winter fruit to salads and snacked on them by themselves, but a smoothie is the perfect vehicle for transforming these little guys into something more indulgent, not to mention packing a powerful vitamin C punch during cold […]

Sometimes I will add nut butter […]

Pumpkin Mousse Tartlets

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

A lot of times, nothing beats a simple recipe. All you need is a few ingredients and 20 minutes and you can create something simply spectacular. I was inspired by the raw (meaning unpasteurized) lusciously thick cream I had. I wanted to highlight this high-quality ingredient rather than let it get lost with a bunch of other ingredients. My sweet tooth told me pumpkin and honey would perfectly complement the cream, and my sweet tooth […]
