Mojito Sweet Bread

Mojito Sweet Bread

It is starting to look like spring here in North Carolina! There is something about a warm sunny day that leaves me craving a fruity, sweet dessert. This Mojito Sweet Bread has such a fun, refreshing flavor. It’s loaded with both lime juice and zest as well as plenty of fresh mint leaves. With or without icing, this bread is perfect to pair with a glass of iced tea, lemonade, or maybe something a little more “adult”!

Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars

These granola bars are a perfect breakfast or snack when you’re on the go. I have found myself with very limited free time this holiday season between work, travel, and shopping for Christmas presents! I am not a pleasant person when I’m hangry, but these bars have saved me on many occasions! These soft, chewy granola bars are full of seasonal flavors and are wonderful when eaten warm or cold. They are also very customizable.

Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes

I’ll be the first to admit that I have the biggest sweet tooth. I love cakes, cookies, and candies.  This recipe combines two of my favorite desserts: chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes. By freezing balls of cookie dough overnight, they can be cooked right in the middle of these cupcakes and still keep their doughy, fudgy texture. Serve these at your next holiday or birthday party!  

Eggplant Bacon - "ELTs"

Eggplant Bacon ELTs

I can’t count the number of times that friends have told me they can’t go vegetarian/vegan because they would miss bacon. So I decided to solve that problem. Please note that this recipe has two cooking options: oven or air fryer. The oven requires more cooking time, but this “bacon” is worth the wait. It’s crisp and salty and is perfect to pair with a tofu scramble or some pancakes for breakfast.

Vegan Queso

Vegan Queso

‘Nacho average snack. This non-dairy, nut free queso is a game changer. It gets it’s bright orange color from veggies and it’s cheesy flavor from nutritional yeast. You can keep it mild or spice things up with chili powder and jalapeno brine! We like to drizzle ours on blue corn chips topped with black beans, corn, pico de gallo and avocado.
