Spring is the perfect time to start adding edible flowers to your baked goods. The crisp air and bright sunshine always get me excited to see things start to bloom. I first started cooking with lavender a few years ago and honestly, edible flowers scared me at first. Like, what if I get something wrong and eat a flower I shouldn't and get really really sick! Luckily, that hasn't ever happened. Lots of folks forage edible flowers themselves- which I think is super cool- but my anxiety ain't up for it, so I buy mine from local farmers or grocers. These cupcakes are made with edible flowers in...

Y'all this recipe is so much fun and sooooo delicious! I loved writing this piece for All Recipes and hope you'll give a read. " Nothing quite symbolizes autumn like a big, bright pumpkin. At this time of year, you'd be hard-pressed to enter any store that doesn't have pumpkin decor — and we use them ourselves to decorate everything from front porches to dinner party tablescapes. So why not make a pumpkin cake that looks..." KEEP READING

Whole Food Plant Based (Vegan) Winter Cake

As you know, we've been playing around with some recipes that fall in a line with a whole food plant based lifestyle. Have you seen the documentary "Forks over knives"? Yeah, it's that type of eating. And we are really enjoying it. It's balanced, filling, and non restrictive. Definitely a lifestyle (which is good, because I'm not about that diet culture life). So, since the holidays are here, I figured I'd test out a recipe inspired by my super talented friend Amber of Eat Your F@#*ing Vegetables . Amber shares such creative recipes and this recipe is no different. The icing recipe was...

This cold, rainy weather has me all in the mood for baking bread! The recipe was inspired by this recipe from My Sequened Life with several alterations to make it vegan and a to simplify the process a little a bit. If you're wondering about the beautiful edible gold on top, it's KLG Gold Cardamom Fruitas aka edible gold breath freshner (that also work great in baking!). For a detailed tutorial on braiding your bread check out this ! Ok, here's how I made it!

I'm so excited to finally share this fun recipe collaboration with Good People Brewing Company with you! This recipe combines two of my favorite things: pumpkin spice & local fair. Most of you know that beer is something I indulge in occasionally, so when I decide to have one, I want it to be really delicious and high quality. Bearded Lady hits the spot! It's by far my favorite local beer and it goes perfectly with the flavors of the season. This bread uses spelt flour, orange zest, and DAK'S pumpkin spice which all bring out the subtle citrus flavors of the beer. Pumpkin seeds &...

There's been a little bag of chia seeds sitting on my counter for several weeks. I've sprinkled a little on a couple of smoothie bowls. I've blended some seeds into a smoothie drink. But, I've never made chia pudding. Until today! I'm not going to lie to you guys, the texture is straight up weird. For real. It's kind of like eating gummy worms as pudding. Hahaha. But, the flavor is dang delicious! And the benefits of chia seeds are pretty amazing. Did you know chia seeds are: high in omega-3 fatty acids high in calcium, potassium, and magnesium a great source of protein high in antioxidants...

Pound cake has intimidated me for a long time. I have tried a couple of recipes and failed miserably. So, I turned to the guy who can explain each and every step and the reasoning behind it- Alton Brown . After watching his video (we streamed it on Hulu) I was ready to tackle the pound cake beast! I followed his instructions exactly and came out with the most moist, flavorful cake with a flaky, candy-like crust. I also followed his recipe for the citrus glaze, but added thyme to give it a little more earthiness. The three biggest takeaways I got from his recipe were: Make sure every...
