Hippocrates, the "father of medicine", described the elderberry plant as his "medicine chest". All parts of the plant offer potent medicinal properties, and the berries are particularly powerful in boosting the immune system. Elderberries are packed with anthocyanins, flavonols and antioxidants that have been shown to sh...

One of my many favorite things about fall is the abundance of seasonal root vegetables. Aside from being loaded with vitamins like A & C, minerals including magnesium & phosphorus, and digestion-boosting soluble & insoluble fiber, root vegetables are also incredibly grounding and warming to the system - which I think we...

There are few things more satisfying on a slow Sunday morning than a delicious brunch. And in my opinion, nothing completes a good brunch like crispy roasted potatoes. 

I feel as though I am always advocating for & defending the potato. Diet culture has viciously demonized this humble vegetable, which actually offers...

Though I'm absolutely loving my new home, there is one thing (well, a few things) but one thing in particular that I really miss about Austin - and that's the abundance of TACOS everywhere! So, I've decided to take matters into my own hands and recreat...

It was my roommate's birthday yesterday, and her favorite food in the world is none other than a big kale salad. In my opinion, what makes a kale salad special is really the dressing. I love making nut-based salad dressings, because when blended, the nuts create a delicious, creamy texture that perfectly coats each leaf....

There are just some mornings when the craving for pancakes strikes, and nothing else will do! When that happens, I love making these chickpea flour pancakes.

I always keep chickpea flour on hand because it is so versatile! It's high in protein with a very mild flavor, making it a great flour to use in baking, especially...

Crispy, or chewy?

Chocolate chips, or raisins?

These are the questions one must chew on (pun intended) when aiming to create the perfect Oatmeal Cookie! This time around, I went with the soft and chewy variety. Usually the ratio of fat/sugar in your cookie recipe is what helps to dictate its texture. No right or wrong, bet...
