Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

There is nothing so gratifying and uplifting as being shown that you are loved. For both of my grandmothers, providing a meal was their way of showing how much they cared about us. This tradition of showing love through cooking has passed down to me. When I cook for you, I want to feed you, […]

No Cook Chocolate Pudding

I’ve come to the conclusion that people like your blog more when there is dessert. This is slightly sad for someone who spends most of their time avoiding sugar and whose normal dessert is half a roasted sweet potato. BUT, once a week I enjoy some chocolate pudding. Three ingredients, no fuss, pure, velvety, smooth […]

Beef Curry Stew

When it comes to food, the internet lacks in conveying one key thing: smell. The smell of Japanese curry is enough to bring me to my knees. Even though I know regular Japanese curry is full of dangerous things like wheat & sugar, I am always drawn to the smell of a hot bowl of […]

Read more on Why I Quit Stevia. Part III in this week’s Sugar Series. Don’t miss Part I and Part II! It took me a long time to come […]

Fast, Easy, Indian Summer Meal Ideas

Hi friends! I really hope Indian Summer is PC, because I’ve always liked that term. To me it speaks of the golden days of September, where summer’s warmth still lingers but also holds the promise of the comforts of fall. It reminds me of picking wildflowers at my grandparents’ house and coming home from the […]

Uncool Fudge

Last Sunday, when I made 12 sweet potato truffles and ate all 12 in the space of six hours, also in the middle of writing Tuesday’s giveaway post, I fully intended to post the truffle recipe today. On Monday, being on an unusual dessert kick, I unintentionally developed an avocado fudge recipe – well actually […]

First Guest Post: Blueberry Avocado Smoothie!

The other day I was searching for an email my brother had sent me and I typed “Joe radish” into the search bar. We tend to like the same sorts of food – and by like I mean rave like addicts – such as grilled vegetables, coconut anything, and of course sweet potatoes. We email at […]

Simple Green Smoothie + A Stroke of Squash Genius

I wanted to write “A Stroke of Sleep Deprived Squash Genius”, but I thought that might get a little long. International travel, my friends, is a terrifically wonderful thing. So often we can take for granted the fact that we can get in a giant metal bird and FLY. Honestly, whenever I get a little […]
