Roasted Vegetable Coconut Quinoa Curry

Monday's are my quinoa or pasta nights.

It's not about working smarter, not harder! ...more

Long gone are the days of visiting my sister at work but new are the days for lunch dates with homemade chicken avocado spring rolls. :) ...more

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Gooey “Butter” Cake

Have you ever heard of Wet Chocolate Cake? I didn’t think so. That is the weirdest name for any cake. “Wet” isn’t an appetizing word any way you slice it, especially when used in the same sentence as “cake”. It makes the cake sound soggy and mushy....more
