Fruit Spring Rolls

I love spring rolls. Like, an eat-them-once-a-week kind of love. And I would probably eat them every day if it wasn't such a chore to roll them. But recently it occurred to me that I've been wasting an opportunity by using the rice paper wraps only for savory rolls. By combining coconut sticky-rice style noodles with fresh fruit, I created a desert spring roll to satisfy any sweet tooth. Just trust me and try it.

Cauliflower Eggplant Dip

Last week I had the pleasure of playing around in the kitchen with Amanda Williams or Gourmanz. She whipped up this creamy cauliflower eggplant dip. Delicious with pita points or veggies, it would also make a great spread for a veggie sandwich. Below is my version of the dip, but check out Amanda's site for the vegan version and other great recipes!

Roasted Fall Squash & Tomato Pie

This savory pie is a great way to incorporate the butternut, delicata, or acorn squashes that are showing up at the markets this time of year while using up those final harvests of summer tomatoes. A farewell-summer-and-hello-fall kind of dish.

Blueberry + Spinach + Cacao Smoothie

Every single morning since I've been pregnant I have woken up craving smoothies. I switch up which ingredients I use for the sake of variety, but this is my go-to smoothie of choice. It is thick and creamy enough to keep me full, but fruity enough to quench my thirst. This smoothie is a great source of healthy fats and antioxidants. And somehow the baby never seems to get sick of it.

Local Produce Delivery!

When Fresh Harvest asked me to try one of their produce baskets, I really didn't think this was a service I'd use. I was excited to try it, but I like going to the store and picking out my own produce. I thought it might be a great option for someone else, but not for someone like me. And  of course I was totally wrong. But first, here is how Fresh Harvest works:

Banana Birthday Cake with Cream Cheese and Chocolate Frosting

My best friend Emily of Whisk and Whittle makes this amazing cake with caramelized bananas and Nutella.  If you are in the mood for all the butter, flour, and sugar (which sometimes I am!), her cake is definitely the winner.  But last week I was in the mood for that cake, but I wanted a healthier version. I decided to adapt the recipe from my Maple Pecan Banana Muffins to make a healthy gluten-free/refined sugar-free version. And while it is a different cake experience completely, it turned out great!

Vegan Egg Nog

To me, it is Christmas time as soon as I see eggnog on the shelves. I can’t get enough of the stuff. But a drink made from sugar, cream, and eggs is not the healthiest choice. So I came up with this vegan version I can feel good about drinking all holiday season.
