Tikka Masala Vegan Pizza

Tikka Masala Vegan Pizza

PIZZA. It’s great. Really…I miss the traditional doughy-cheesy greasy goodness I can no longer eat without severely upsetting my stomach. But making my own pizza is a game changer. It’s definitely not the same, I’ll be the first to admit that. However, when you get […]

Peanut Butter and Apple Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Peanut Butter and Apple Jam Thumbprint Cookies

I’m starting to really dig into recipe development and try different exercises for coming up with original ideas. This is easier said than done because recipes are ALL OVER THE INTERNET. You get stuck on things you see all the time, things you really want […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Oatmeal

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Oatmeal

I’m on this peanut butter and jelly kick lately. I think I just have some serious nostalgia for it. Plus Justin really loves an occasional PB&J sandwich and I get jealous. Without bread in my life it’s difficult to get the same effect but these […]
