Peppermint carob balls

Just whipped up these awesome peppermint carob balls! They are vegan, gluten free, and paleo. They are really easy to make and very tasty! I got the recipe from and made a few changes. I used carob powder in the main mix instead of cocoa powder since Brad is […]

I’m on the radio!

Last week a SC public radio reporter interviewed me about how I’m coping with the pandemic (spoiler alert: it’s well!).   The radio story along with a text article (they are different from each other, so view both of them!) came out today. I am really really happy with both […]

Maple roasted autumn vegetables

Another really good dish! I needed some tweaking of the recipe. Maybe my vegetables were really big, so there wasn’t enough of the sauce for me. I had to add more salt and maple syrup. Brad added more salt, pepper, and maple syrup. I also had to roast the veggies […]

Salsa 3

Brad eats a ton of salsa, and since I’m feeling better and cooking more, I figured it’d be cheaper if I started making my own salsa again! I use a recipe adapted from Brad’s mom’s recipe. Mine is a little different as I use more tomatoes and I don’t peel […]

Paleo cashew bread 1

I just made a really really simple and very tasty paleo bread that uses cashews and a touch of coconut flour. I got the recipe from Below are a couple of pictures of the bread, which is a smaller loaf, brown and very shiny. Below that is the recipe. […]
