Paleo Banana Bread with Pears and Honeyed Chocolate Sauce

        So stoked on this Paleo Banana Bread with Pears and Honeyed Chocolate Sauce, for reals, it’s gluten and grain free, super moist and indulgently delicious. All I wanted today (and most days) was something rich and chocolately, warm and comforting, with a nice hot chai, and it doesn’t get much better […]

Roasted Ratatouille with Sunflower Seed Pesto

  Rrratatouille, it’s worth making, not only is it a palatable way to enjoy a smorgasbord of summer vegetable abundance, just the word ratatouille is fun to say. I love to enjoy ratatouille in a number of ways, traditionally it is a slowly stewed dish with herbes de provence, but I also love roasting it and […]

  Nom nom nom, these bars will blow your mind with textural supremacy! They are like a raw nanaimo bar, without all the junk.

Balsamic Roast Chicken+ How to make Balsamic Reduction

This Balsamic Roast Chicken recipe is pretty enough to serve at a gathering of friends, with a nice glass of wine, but easy enough to throw together in a pinch.
