I have to admit, I try to disguise them any way I can, and what better way to sneak in some hidden carrots than in this Roasted Carrot Hummus!

The Vitamix Explorian E310 machine mentioned in this post was sent to me as a gift, thank you so much!  As a food blogger, this time of year can easily become the most stressful, but it can also be the most scrumptious. I mean we're talking food, food, and more food! And then we're stuck eating leftovers for weeks, which for me is kinda great (because I don't have to cook), but after a couple days, I start craving something other than the same five things... that is unless I'm creative enough to reinvent them and use them in a different way! So I busted out my Vitamix Explorian E310 blender and I challenged myself to do just that. Ta-da! Sweet Potato, Brussels,

Cherry Apple Stuffing Sponsored by Graceland Fruit

The Graceland Fruit product mentioned in this post were sent to me as a gift to use in this recipe, thank you so much!  Stuffing. True story- I used to skip the stuffing at Thanksgiving... I know, I know- weird. Actually, being that I needed to be eating gluten-free (and didn't know it) and stuffing is loaded with the gluten goblin, it's probably better that I didn't load it up on my plate like most. But as I became a big kid and started hosting Thanksgiving, I started including stuffing on my Thanksgiving menu but experimenting with ways that I loved it and could eat it safely. So naturally for me, that means adding something sweet and using

Oh.hot.jam... ok, well it's not quite jam, but these roasted plums would make one heck of a jam note to self for future recipe. I am always looking for an amazing breakfast recipe. If you've read my breakfast posts in the past, you'll know that breakfast is the hardest meal for me being a gluten-free vegan. All the traditional American breakfasts are out, and while I a lot of those dishes  this Roasted Plum + Blackberry + Hazelnut Baked Oatmeal sure delivers! I mean, just look at that juice oozing over the sides. It's flavorful, filling and perfect for your weekend brunches. I had never roasted plums until now. Come to think of it, I don't really eat plums very often at all. It's one of those fruits I kinda forget about. I'm not really sure why exactly,

Brussels + Roasted Cauliflower Grapefruit Salad

Well hey there! Let me introduce you to the most epic brussels salad I've ever had. This delicious, hardy salad starts with shredded brussels sprouts, roasted cauliflower, and broiled grapefruit and is finished off with panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, toasted hazelnuts, and and easy homemade grapefruit vinegarette. I told you... epic. If you're already a salad lover, this one is for you, and if you don't- I bet this one sounds pretty interesting because it's not your "typical" salad. This salad is surprisingly filling, and when I first started making it I was thinking this isn't going to be enough! But it is. And it's best enjoyed right after you make it, so leftover salad wasn't something I was going for with this Brussels + Roasted Cauliflower
