Coco-Apple Walnut Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

We're in the middle of the summer heat - and yet somehow I was craving fall flavors. I've been making quinoa bowls for breakfast on a weekly basis, using chocolate and cocoa to make it a little naughty. This round, I decided to take out my fall fever with a classic cinnamon-apple combination thanks to my new found favorite applesauce from Buy Natural Nectar

Banana Walnut Muffins {AIP and Paleo}


These muffins were inspired by the delightful blog Fed and Fulfilled's recipe for Paleo Pumpkin Spice Muffins.  The Pumpkin Spice muffins were in heavy rotation in our house for several months and I started to play with variations. What I love is that the base ratio of wet and dry ingredients is on point and can be easily customized. It's difficult to find Paleo and AIP recipes that can boast such a trait!

Nailed It: Panda Creme Puffs with Nutella-Mascarpone Filling


Not going to lie... these creme puffs had me and my husband laughing for a good 5 minutes straight. They didn't come out exactly how I had pictured them. Maybe next time - it's always a learning experience! In the interim, I'll take the "A" for effort and enjoy their delicious flavor.

Spring Pavlova {Lemon Curd, Roasted Strawberries, and Whipped Cream}


I didn't want to bake a cake for my mom's birthday. It was time to switch things up. With the beautiful spring weather, it needed to be light. Fruity. A little refreshing.

Inspiration struck with a lovely Pavlova.

Yeast Pancakes


Not going to lie - these pancakes are not for everyone. They're definitely not what American's think of when they hear the word, "pancake." The site that I found them actually refers to them as Racuszki (Yeasted Polish Pancakes). I don't think I've ever had Polish food but apparently sour cream is a thing?
