Peanut Butter Banana Coconut Cookie

So I tried making a healthy cookie… Was it good???? Meh it was ok.  It tasted fine but it lacked the cookieness.  The cookies tasted best on the first day I made them.  The next couple days it was too soft and sticky and crumbly.  I also didn’t like the texture of the cookie.  Maybe…

Parmesan Green Beans

A couple days ago, I made an easy recipe that my kid loves. It was so simple that it was great for a weekday dinner. One thing I do recommend is getting some nice and young green beans. I think mine were a little old so they were a little chewy. The recipe I followed…

Raw Cashew Strawberry Cheesecake

Removing dairy from my baking has been really hard especially if you knew how much I love cheesecake. This recipe was inspired from Isa Chandra who does amazing vegan and vegetarian food. Her cooking is tasty and wholesome without making things artificial. Soak 3 cups of cashews overnight or for at least 3 hours. Soaking…

Cheesy Savory Shortbread

I got this idea because my son loves shortbread cookies. I looked up a couple recipes but I wanted to make it simple and slightly healthier. To start, grate 2 cups of Cheddar cheese and 1 cup of butter cubed. Mix together the flour and the butter. Cut up the butter until you get coarse…

Cloud Bread

I have been wanting to make this recipe for a long time, but then I stopped eating eggs and kind of forgot about it until recently. This weekend I decided to try it out.  It only takes 4 ingredients and doesn’t take that long. It is also a good gluten free alternative to bread. Start…

Easy Natural Sweetener

As you may know, I still struggle with eczema.  It isn’t as bad as before but it will get worse with the holiday season coming up.  This is mostly because of all the sugar!! To fight my sugar cravings I made this date paste.  It is so sweet and tasty.  I love it on toast…

Pickled Jalapenos

Pickled jalapenos is very easy to make and surprisingly a lot tastier than the store bought ones. They taste fresh and you can adjust the sweetness which is nice. You can also pickle other peppers at the same time. Begin by cutting up the peppers in slices. I recommend using gloves to prevent any pepper…
