ROASTED MUSHROOM + TOMATO QUICHE

March 29, 2017

I’m super proud of this one! I’ve never made a pie crust before. It definitely takes some practice but we got it! As you can see, this is a v v v rustic looking quiche but that’s more or less the beauty of it IMO.

My first attempt was a major fail — I tried to make a healthy-ish-?er version with almond flour but ugh, I should know better. Almond flour most definitely does not behave like APF. It is essentially ground up almonds (which we all know are high in fat) so basically what had happened was the dough just dripped off the sides of the pan and never came together. Ugh. Such a waste of a stick of butter. Continue Reading

PALEO BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

March 25, 2017

These aren’t your standard bb muffin. They are grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free blueberry muffins so I guess they fall under the ‘paleo’ category. I have been experimenting with grain free baking again ever since my short stint with Whole 30. Lol. Confession: I didn’t make the whole 30 days. Technically. Continue Reading

BLIZZARD BEEF STEW

March 14, 2017

It’s been so long!! Beans is officially back in action bc I ran out of money to spend on furniture. Lol kidding but not.

We’ve been in our new home for almost 2 weeks now and we are sort of semi-settled. I mean, besides the never-ending to-do list that I hear is pretty standard with homeowner-?ship, we are here! It still feels so unreal. Like we pull up and sit in the car for a sec and we’re like this. is. ours. We can put hundreds of holes in the walls and paint the door pink if we wanted to! No really, I’m thinking a blush pink front door. Is that cool or no?? Continue Reading

BIRTHDAY BOO BOO + CINNAMON ROLLS

February 26, 2017

It’s boo boo’s birthday! Haha jkjk that was like 2 weeks ago now but I’m finally getting around to posting the cinnamon rolls I made in celebration. I was planning on making a cake too but I guess that was a little too ambitious. Let’s just say I wasn’t expecting the sugar crash after having oh, 2 to 3 of these for lunch. This was the day we got that huge snow storm so we were in full hibernation mode on the couch the majority of the day binge watching Blind Spot. << Wouldn’t want it any other way.

RASPBERRY ALMOND TRUFFLES

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentines Day!! Make these truffles for your boo boo like I did! They are super easy and you probs have everything you need in your pantry. Oh, you don’t stock coconut cream?? Why the heck not?! I put it in my coffee or make a quick coconut whip for dessert. It’s the best! Trader’s always has a bunch, you still have time!! Or sub heavy cream. Do you have that? No? Jeez, you’re SOL. Continue Reading
