Pumpkin Pie Bars

I'm keeping this short and sweet today (just like these pumpkin pie bars) because these guys speak for themselves. I mean, just look at them... OK, I know, not the most photogenic.

The Easiest Roasted Vegetables

My first thought, always, when someone says they don't like vegetables is, "but have you had roasted vegetables?" Because there's a difference. And if you've had them or made them, you know. This is not the same. Steamed Brussels sprouts and the crispy, caramelized sprouts that come out of the oven might as well be… Continue reading The Easiest Roasted Vegetables

In this case, the roasted chickpeas scored high marks.… Continue reading Crunchy Spiced Roasted Chickpeas + The Trick to Making Beans Easier to Digest

The Benefits of Souping + Detox Broccoli Soup

Writing up this detox broccoli soup recipe got me thinking... Have y'all heard of "souping"? It's the same idea as juicing but instead of replacing meals with juice you swap in soup. It's gained quite a bit of popularity over the last few years as a detoxifying alternative to juicing that is a bit more… Continue reading The Benefits of Souping + Detox Broccoli Soup
