Vegan Black Bean Chocolate Chili with (optional) Tequila

Vegan Black Bean Chocolate Chili

This black bean chili caught my eye when I first bought this book years ago. Since my husband doesn’t eat mushrooms it was never made. When I say that my husband doesn’t like mushrooms what I mean is that he won’t even touch a container from the store. He is very anti-mushrooms. He can not pick out the flavor in food however (even though he thinks he can). Continue reading →

Sorrel Hummus
I am always trying new recipes. My husband likes to joke that I never make anything twice. I do repeat a lot of my recipes but I also don’t want to be bored in the kitchen or have us bored eating the same item over and over. Continue reading →

I love having easy salads in my refrigerator during the summer. They are perfect to add to anything grilled or packed up to take on a picnic. I made this salad several times last year and a few times this year already. I really like taking this salad to a potluck or to a friend’s house for dinner. Continue reading →

Healthy Coconut Chocolate Pudding

Healthy Chocolate Pudding I hope you are not tired of young coconuts yet. This dessert could not be easier or more refreshing. It tastes just as good as a traditional chocolate pudding but it is so much healthier. It is also refreshing and not heavy like a traditional chocolate pudding.┬áMy kids love chocolate pudding and while I don’t mind making it from time to time it isn’t the healthiest option. I wanted to create a healthy dessert that still tasted decadent. Continue reading →

Creamsicle Oatmeal
My husband jokes that I will add citrus to anything, and while he isn’t completely wrong there are certain things that even I won’t add it to….even if nothing comes to mind at the moment. I always have some type of citrus in our crisper and during the winter I normally have five plus types of citrus. I just love all of it. Oranges, blood oranges, lemons, meyer lemons, Continue reading →

Vanilla Raw Young Coconut Yogurt

Young Coconut Yogurt

For years I have heard everyone say how great coconut water is, that it tastes amazing. I have tried SO many of the containers of coconut water. Ick! I can handle it in a smoothie but not to drink on its own. Finally a year and a half ago a local store was having ‘tropical’ week, it was the first chance that I had to buy fresh young coconuts. I bought two young coconuts and we have been hooked ever since. Continue reading →
