It’s here! My new cookbook, Love & Lemons Every Day, is out TODAY!! I’m so excited to be sitting here writing this post, because the process of making this book was a long one! About 3 years ago, I set out with SO many ideas that I wanted to pack into this book. Over time, I kept adding more and more… and more. I’d think – “Ooh, this section would be helpful,” or “Oh I’d like to have that information on hand,” and “Let’s add MORE dinner recipes,” etc, etc. As I got carried away, the process got longer, the book…


Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries

This healthy baked oatmeal recipe makes for a delicious brunch! I love this blueberry version, but for a twist, swap in whatever seasonal fruit you like.

The past few days have been SO nice out! We’ve been going for long walks with light(er) coats on – feeling the glorious sunshine without being bundled up in scarves, hats, and gloves. It’s funny the things you learn to appreciate as the seasons change. So speaking of sunny thoughts, my mind is on brunch this weekend and I’m feeling fruity. With Easter, Mother’s Day, and other brunch-y holidays on the horizon, I thought I’d share one of my favorite recipes to make for a group… baked oatmeal! I love this recipe because you can assemble it ahead of time and…

Healthy Banana Bread

This easy, healthy banana bread has it all - it’s moist, nicely spiced, and simple to make. Enjoy it for breakfast or an afternoon snack!

While bananas may not be my favorite fruit, banana bread is a whole other story. When I bake banana bread, I lose all control. Just knowing that a loaf is sitting on the kitchen counter will make me come back for just one more slice all day long. It’s the perfect afternoon snack with a cup of coffee, and I love how wonderful it makes the house smell. Side note: this bread freezes well, which is how I was able to exhibit any sense of portion control as we tested loaf after loaf. 🙂 Why I Love This Vegan Banana Bread…
