So stoked that it’s Spring and now Easter is this weekend? YASSSS. I was thinking about a menu for Easter. I’m helping my Mom host and the first thing on the list is “Daddy’s Deviled Eggs”. My Dad makes some mean deviled eggs. He always finds a way to sass them up with different ingredients and […]
It’s crunch time for gift giving… my inbox is pretty jam-packed with “last day to get shipped by Christmas” warnings.

Gluten-free | Vegan These delicious empanadas were a HIT at my Winter Solstice Celebration (full post here). Sweet from the acorn squash, rich from the black beans and that rustic, hearty taste from the hand-held buckwheat crust is perfect for a spread. Don’t let all the directions scare you, I’m just very thorough especially […]
Gluten-free These savory shortbreads will melt in your mouth. I’ve topped them with Quince jam that I bought from a local farmer’s market and chopped hazelnuts. SCORE.
