Applesauce Oat Muffins

Applesauce Oat Muffins by Rachel

So I have another muffin recipe for you. And it's from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I think there's a theme going on here. ;) Two things that I love, I guess: muffins and Mel's blog.These are the sort of thing that are pretty humble and very straightforward but are just so good. Slightly spiced and very moist, they are a definite favorite…

Dairy Free Avocado Ranch Dressing

Dairy Free Avocado Ranch Dressing by Rachel

Okay, so overload on the dairy free recipes? Probably but that's what it is around here and I'm cool with that. We've embraced it and found some really great dairy free recipes that will probably stick around long past the time that we have to actually be free of dairy.With that being said, this is definitely one of those that will…

Dairy and Egg Free Chocolate Pudding

Dairy and Egg Free Chocolate Pudding by Rachel

I think that the most challenging part of this dairy free journey we've been on is realizing when you actually want something and when you want something because you can't have it. Usually, it's the latter and the craving passes pretty quickly.But sometimes, you just really want something creamy/chocolatey/gooey/dairy-laden. And…

Deconstructed Falafel Salad

Deconstructed Falafel Salad by Rachel

I have to confess something to you relating to this salad. I've never had falafel. My husband on the other hand, LOOOOVES falafel with his entire being. He always pretends like he's going to order something else when the situation presents itself but he never does. It's always falafel.So I knew immediately when I saw this salad post…

Healthy Applesauce Carrot Muffins

Healthy Applesauce Carrot Muffins by Rachel

I don't know if there is such a thing as having too many muffins recipes on your food blog, but if there is, I definitely qualify for it. To quote my 3.5-year-old, "I just love them." And that should be reason enough to add another one to the repertoire.These muffins are great in so many ways: they only dirty one bowl, use whole…

Chicken and Wild Rice Salad with Arugula

Chicken and Wild Rice Salad with Arugula by Rachel

I first made this recipe well over a year ago when my in-laws were visiting. It was a big hit but it, of course, got buried deep within my notebook of recipes that I've pulled out of magazines. I recently pulled that notebook out and went through the many, many collected pages and made a mental note to make this very soon. I…

Marinated Chicken with Kale and Brussels Sprouts Saute

Marinated Chicken with Kale and Brussels Sprouts Saute by Rachel

I really didn't know what to title this blog post. The original recipe is titled That Chicken and has a cute story to go with it. I don't have a cute story. This recipe came across my blog reader and *poof*, ended up on my menu. :)It is indeed marinated chicken that is so delicious that it will probably become my new go-to for tasty…

Pineapple Salsa Rice

Pineapple Salsa Rice by Rachel

Mexican food has become my default when I don't have anything on our meal plan or I don't feel like making whatever it is I had planned for that evening. Originally we were going to grill some fish and roast a bunch of vegetables and call it good on this particular night. But then I was flipping through a magazine that was FULL of…

Hummingbird Cupcakes with Dried Pineapple Flowers

Hummingbird Cupcakes with Dried Pineapple Flowers by Rachel

Every year I ask James what kind of cake he wants for his birthday and every year he debates between carrot cake and hummingbird cake. It's a super hard decision for him because birthday cake is serious business. (Duh.) This year hummingbird cake won out and I was so excited to get baking!!Hummingbird cake is a southern tradition…

Clementine Margaritas

Clementine Margaritas by Rachel

Usually I'm sort of a margarita purist - tequila, lime, triple sec. Done. I usually don't even salt my glass. Once in a while, though, I get a craving for something a little different and with almost 10 pounds of clementines staring at me, it was pretty much fate. These are still super simple, just tequila, clementine juice, and…
