Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

This is one of my favorite salads I’ve ever made! The roasted butternut squash used in this recipe is delicious, and so is the apple cider vinaigrette (which suits many other salads!) I forgot to take a picture of it on it’s own, but it is included in the picture on this post, along with…

Whole Wheat Challah

Challah is definitely my favorite bread, and I decided to make this recipe with ingredients I had at home (I only had whole wheat flour). I wasn’t expecting for this whole wheat version to taste as delicious as it did, especially since I made many revisions to the original recipe I used from Cooking with Tantrums….

Crispy Sweet Potato Sticks

I love anything made with sweet potato and crispy, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong with these Crispy Sweet Potato Sticks. I didn’t peel the sweet potato, since most of the nutrients are contained in the peel. However, you could always peel the sweet potato if you don’t like eating sweet potato peels. I…

Black Bean Brownies

I love sweets, so if I can find any recipe to try to make a healthier version of it, I’m always down to try it. I only post the successful recipes on this blog (which I have many of), but I’ve also made many failed attempts— doesn’t end up the same, or flavor is just…

I made this Tahini Yogurt Fruit dip from Martha Stewart the other day and forgot to take my own picture (so I included the picture from her site instead). I made it exactly like the recipe below, and topped it with pomegranate seeds. I also served it with Trader Joes Pumpkin Cranberry Crisps and apple slices…

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Right now the best soup I have EVER made. Thank you ginabnutrition for this recipe (found on her instagram). The fall flavors of this soup are just incredible, and I love that this soup uses seasonal ingredients. I made a few adjustments based on ingredients I had at home to her original recipe (adjustments will…

Banana Cinnamon Roll Bread

I’m a big fan of Rachel Mansfeld and her healthy baked goods, and decided to try this recipe she has for banana cinnamon roll bread (which can be made vegan). It turned out delicious, but not sweet enough for my liking, so I added a yogurt glaze (used in my banana bread cinnamon rolls) to give…

Fluffy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Made these delicious fluffy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in the spirit of fall, and they were sooo good. I made two different pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and this was by far the winner. Beware, these are addictive, so make sure you have an occasion to serve them at, otherwise it will be way too easy…
