No-bake German Chocolate Cake Cups

Found this delicious looking recipe on Dani’s Healthy Eats, and since I had left over almond flour (from making homemade almond milk) and an event to bring dessert to, I knew this was a perfect opportunity to try this recipe!

Creamy Whipped Banana Oatmeal

I’ve had Chef Chloe’s 5- ingredient Vegan Pesto saved in recipes I’ve wanted to try, and decided to make it yesterday.

Overnight Buckwheat Chia Oatmeal

I bought a huge bag of buckwheat to make my Homemade Seeded Buckwheat Bread, but since I do not have a food processor or blender in my new place (which I need to make the bread), I was not able to use my buckwheat for this recipe. I was looking for another buckwheat recipe that…

Oil-Free Roasted Eggplant (Two ways)

Likely due to my middle eastern background, eggplant is one of my favorite foods. I’ve been seeing different methods of roasting eggplant without oil, and decided to do an experiment using two similarly sized eggplants from the same store to figure out which method I liked best. I tried two methods: one using the stove…
