Apricot Peach Honey Granola Bars

I have finally made a nut-free, bake-free Granola bar! I got the idea for these after making my Homemade Cough Drops earlier this year. I noticed as I prepared the honey for my cough drops, it became thickened, almost like a caramel. Since then, I’ve had the idea of making granola bars using that same preparation method for the honey.

Drunken Cherry Cranberry Sauce

You’re going to love the flavor red wine brings to this Drunken Cherry Cranberry Sauce.  I love cooking and baking with alcohol during the holidays. And no, it’s not because I drink, but because it adds a richer flavor to whatever you add it to. For example, my most recent Pumpkin Pie, where I add bourbon to the pumpkin filling

Vegan Beef Barley Soup

If you follow me on Facebook, you might have even noticed a Mexican food theme over the last week. Sorry Not Sorry. Because I

Vegan Beef Nachos

Lately I’ve been crushing on these Vegan Beef Nachos I made last week. They’re full of good for you stuff like black beans, red onion, tomatoes, avocado, and jalapeño. You get it, they’re full of veggies that pack a punch to your taste buds! But the one thing that sets these apart from other vegan nachos is the vegan “beef”

Vegetable Frittata

Winter has finally showed her ugly, bitter head here in Georgia this week. And all this arctic air is giving me a good reason to keep my oven on! California girls aren’t made for arctic air! If I wanted Arctic air, I’d move to Michigan. I’m never moving to Michigan, if that clears things up for you. This week I’ve
