Post image for Vegan Coconut Black Rice

I love eating so very much, and I love to make my own food as well, but I’m certainly not one for complicated recipes. This rice incredibly easy to make — and equally as delicious. I came up with this recipe one night last week when I was feeling (slightly) adventurous, and I was blown away at how delicious it came out!

This cake was amazing. Not only does it not taste "vegan", but I will now be using it as my go-to chocolate cake recipe.

Post image for Simple Lemon Honey Salad Dressing

I always seem to be drawn to complexity — I love constructing outfits with layers on layers; filling my home with curated clutter; and that weird feeling that surrounds my head when trying to pick apart the universe, life, and what happens before and after — but in a world filled with so much of everything… oftentimes simplicity is what we crave.

I will have to try this ...

I make this salad dressing all the time- it goes well with everything! I love using it on a shaved brussels sprouts salad with dried cranberries, feta, and slivered almond. The mix of textures and flavors is divine.

Post image for You Are What You Eat

It’s a phrase that I’ve heard for years upon years, but one that never quite made any sense to me: You are what you eat. Am I today a bowl of udon noodles? Was I last night a plate of quinoa and sauteed kale? An avocado in the morning and a bean burrito by noon? But after one fateful yoga class, it will now forever make sense to me. Read more »

It looks yummy and you can really see the the thick consistency of this smoothie. Guess that's what avocado is for, it is so creamy yet very chocolatey. I should try this as soon as possible. HA HA.
Chloe -Apr 20, 2014, 6:27AM
This is soooo yummy! Highly recommend trying it! Good unexpected combination!

I made for my breakfast and I absolutely loved it , I added fresh strawberries and banana with a little dollop of honey because I found it a bit unsweetened . I can definitely see my self doing this again in the future , possibly with different variations
Beth @ Tasty Yummies -Jun 19, 2014, 1:03AM
@Michelle - I make it as one large batch in a large glass jar, quart sized. Then after it has set up, I transfer it to two jars or bowls for serving. The jars in the photo are 8 ounce Weck jars. You could certainly mix it up in two jars from the start if you'd like, but it just makes for extra work.

Post image for 5-Minute Mug Brownie (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

There are few things, in my eyes, that beat the taste of a freshly baked brownie. Warm, dense, chocolatey, and just a tad undercooked… Pure sweet bliss. Read more »

Just made these with whole grain flour and coconut sugar, split it into three little prep bowls for my family and they were A BIG HIT! Delicious and easy! Thanks for a great recipe!!!

This looks delicious, but what is with the dead leaves? For a cheaper brownie alternative, I don't want the image of something tasting ashy and musty...

Jalapeños have more vitamin C than an orange! I read this little tidbit on a chalk board in Bad Boy Burrito in Key West.

Post image for Homemade Pressed Flower Lollipops

There’s something about a pressed flower that just grabs my heart and holds it as tightly as can be. I’m always looking for ways to use pressed flowers, and I thought that putting them into a lollipop would be the perfect little treat around Valentine’s Day. Read more »

Post image for Recipe: Red Velvet Cake With Beets

Made this cake two times following the recipe perfectly. Recipe does not work. No way did this blogger achieve that red color without the use of food coloring and/or photoshop. I am an experienced baker and work in food media. The first time it didn't work, I chocked it up to user error. When it didn't work a second time, I knew it was the recipe itself. I ended up with a slightly reddish/pinkish brown color. The cake itself was rather bland too.
Sara -Feb 22, 2014, 8:03AM
I tried the recipe yesterday, because it looks really awesome, and I followed step by step. I even had trouble finding some of the ingredients, such as the coconut oil (in Spain is not very common and it was really expensive, by the way). I didn't miss any of the steps and ingredients (all room temperature) and I didn't get this perfect red velvet colour, in fact it ended being brown, so upset for this... Because I was willing to make this cake since I don't remember when :(
