Lunch Box Trail Mix

I’m a conservative when it comes to trail mix politics. I won’t go near one at the store if it has dried pineapples or brazil nuts; I would say that even pumpkin seeds are pushing it for me. The best trail mix is the simple kind you grew up with. This is a classic mix…

Chocolate Cashew Butter

Cashews and chocolate are an underappreciated combination. Peanuts and chocolate have Reese’s. Almonds and chocolate have Trader Joe’s chocolate covered almonds. Hazelnuts and chocolate have Nutella. When will cashews get their moment to shine? Until they do, we’ll all have to settle for homemade, which really isn’t so bad once you taste it. The cashews…

Strawberry Cashew Granola

The best thing about Spring so far has been buying produce that’s not potatoes or shipped from the other side of the country at the supermarket. I even got suckered into buying a plant just because it was on sale and comes from a local town; I’m a marketer’s dream. After a long, exciting weekend…

Cape Cod Trail Mix

New England doesn’t have a standard cuisine but it certainly could. Between the apple cider doughnuts, glazed Dunkin Donut’s munchkins with jimmies and Boston cream pies there’s a lot to love(mostly carbs). And then there’s this trail mix. You won’t find the typical gang of peanuts and raisins; instead we have cashews and almonds with…

Homemade Honey Roasted Cashews

I’m not sure when but at some point nuts became one of the most expensive items in the grocery store. It’s a shame. They’re one of the healthy foods that are naturally delicious, but dressing them up never hurts. These have become my go-to afternoon snack. They’re perfect for a slight sweet craving or to…

Gluten-Free Vegan Mac N’ Cheese

Thanks for sticking with me the past couple of weeks. I’ve moved home and (almost) unpacked and finally can get back to cooking and food blogging. And did I mention how nice it is to have a full kitchen again? It’s very nice. One of the last things I ate before I moved was a…

Triple Nut Bark

Thanks so much for your feedback on my last post; cover photo #2 was the clear winner. I probably would have picked #3 myself so I’m glad I asked and got different opinions. On Sunday I wanted to make bark but couldn’t think of what recipe to make. Then I remembered one I made way…

Cranberry Cashew Quinoa

It’s been a while since I posted a quinoa recipe. Not because I haven’t been eating it, but because I haven’t been doing anything interesting with it except covering it in store-bought sauce. At some point I forgot to go grocery shopping and had to get crafty and a recipe came out of it. When…

Monkey Trail Mix

If I remember anything from high school biology, it’s that monkeys are one of are closest relatives. We like bananas; they like bananas. We like peanuts; they probably like peanuts. We like chocolate; they’d love chocolate if anyone were weird enough to give chocolate to a monkey. Basically, monkeys have good taste in trail mix….

Chocolate Cheesecake Bars {Raw/Vegan}

Reading food blogs constantly sets of food cravings. I could be eating a perfectly healthy lunch or breakfast when all of a sudden a giant slice of German chocolate cake pops up on the screen and I get one of those I-need-chocolate-right-this-moment feelings. They’re awful. I’m sorry even to add to that. When Caroline posted…
