Apple Roses


I've admired these apple roses for a long time and finally decided to challenge myself to make them for Thanksgiving. They're not as difficult as they look, and they're delicious.

Lentil Soup



The first big rain storm of the season rolled in last weekend and my dinner of choice for rainy nights is soup.  I like to curl up with a big bowl of comforting soup and a good book. I was surprised to discover that I had never posted a recipe for a lentil soup, one of my favorites.  So here is my simple, easy lentil soup recipe for rainy days.

Pizza Tarte Tatin


I made this pizza the same way you would make a French tarte tatin, which is an upside down dessert baked in a cast iron skillet.  I replaced the pastry dough with pizza dough and the fruit with tomatoes, caramelized onions, and kalamata olives.  I don't usually like dairy free pizzas but this was delicious!

Danish Dream Cake - A Vegan Version


Some time ago, I tore a recipe for a Danish Dream Cake from a magazine, but never got around to making it.  My family always wants something chocolate, but for spring, I like to make something a little different.

Strawberry Tart



I made this strawberry tart for my sweetie for Valentines Day.
I'm going to serve it with chocolate ice cream...because my sweetie wants it that way.  Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream would also be very tasty.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie






I've been drinking this smoothie for breakfast all week.  It's like having pumpkin pie and ice cream for breakfast but without the guilt.  No sugar, lots of protein and it's delicious.
