Get your fig on!
I grew up hating the idea of eating anything with figs that weren't Fig Newtons. As I got older, I never really bought figs, not sure why. Then one day I went to a friend's house and she served them in a salad. Delicious! My entire thought of figs changed in that instant. They were tender, juicy and delicious, and ...more»

Pomegranates! High in anti-oxidents and delicious too!
Happy Friday! I have started upping my pomegranate intake lately and have been putting them on anything and everything - sometimes, I'll even just a spoon to a bowl and eat an entire pomegranate in one sitting. I love the crunch and the juciness. They are a little sweet but also sour/tangy and very juicy. Today, I made a chia ...more»
Life Changing Loaf of Bread
Hands-down this is the best bread ever. Not only is it gluten free, but its very nutty and filing. Since becoming (somewhat) gluten-free, I have vowed to make better choices as to what I consume on a daily basis. Bread is super satisfying, but unfortunately not healthy for you - especially since most of the grains and wheat are overprocessed ...more»
Caramelized Onion, Mushroom, Roasted Garlic & Gruyere Tartlets
I have started to really enjoy cooking. It's very meditative and a form of art for me. Last weekend, I had a few friends over to watch the Patriots vs Packers Fooball game. Admittedly, I'm not a football fan, so this gave me a great excuse to cook. Knowing that we wanted appetizer/bite-sized foods, I whipped up these tartlets. They ...more»

I mean, you eat chocolate chip pancakes with bacon on the side, but combining them bring this breakfast treat to an entire new level.

Healthy Homemade Granola
I have always loved granola -- the plain kind -- since I don't like too much dried fruit or raisins in my yogurt or cereal. So today, I tried first hand at making my own homemade granola. It turned out fantastic - just sweet enough and packed with nuts and nutrients. Here's the recipe that I used. Note that I ...more»
