RECIPE: Pumpkin Buckwheat Pancakes

Very rarely do I get my act together and post some seasonal recipes…but thanks to Willow, we’ve been going a little pumpkin crazy here! We’ve created donuts, cookies, and these pancakes, which are adapted from my Chai Spiced Buckwheat Pancakes. My hope is to share the other pumpkin-y recipes too! Pancakes are not only a…

SEPTEMBER 2019 Favorites

Happy OCTOBER, my friends! And happy Autumn! ❤️ I adore this time of year for so many reasons: leaves changing color, crisp + cool air, getting cozy in sweaters (and soon scarves), apples – especially honeycrisp, going to the pumpkin patch, the smell of clove + cinnamon, reading by the fireplace, and lots of comfort…

RECIPE: Savory Cream of Buckwheat

If given the choice, I will 9 times out of 10 opt for a savory breakfast….especially during autumn and winter. For years I used to start my day with a smoothie (sometimes I still do), but as time went by, I noticed they didn’t keep me satisfied for very long AND they’re cold! Mornings here…

August 2019 Favorites

Happy SEPTEMBER, dear friends! We’re fast approaching my favorite season, but this has certainly been a good summer.

RECIPE: Build-Your-Own Baked Oatmeal

There’s something about eating out of a bowl that I find both comforting and satisfying. It’s really a perfect vessel – it has a wall to hold pile in a wide variety of foods. Ice cream, stir-fry, salad, pasta, soup, and oatmeal! And what do all of those things have in common?? They’re all foods…

RECIPE: Tahini Mocha

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with tahini. The first recipe I ever published here, many years ago, did indeed use tahini. I even joke with people that if I ever write a book, it will be all about tahini! Funny story….have you ever gotten so excited about something such as a book, a…

Strawberry Kombucha Pops

I don’t know what it’s like by you, but here in Bend, OR, it is HOT. It feels like it’s been near 100° for at least two weeks and since we don’t have AC, all I’ve been living on is smoothies and salads…and sitting in front of a fan…or in a cramped kiddie pool with…

June 2018 Favorites

Happy July, my friends! Can you believe it?? I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far! June was a fun-filled month with a road trip to Yellowstone, watching our garden grow, and just lots of time outside. More exciting news…Willow lost her first tooth the night before we left for our trip and then lost…

Flourless Chocolate Tahini Cookies

Chocolate + Tahini + Salt = LOVE Dear WordPress, how do you NOT recognize tahini as a word??? That little red squiggly line annoys me! Ha! It has been a LONG time since I’ve shared a tahini recipe with you, which is silly considering I use tahini on an almost daily basis. Whether savory or…
