Santa Barbara Cookie Bar

Santa Barbara Cookie Bar

Santa Barbara will always hold a special place in Ashton and my heart. We used to go down there for about 8 weeks a year with our coach and physiotherapist to train when the weather in Eugene was total crap (2 weeks in December and […]

Pumpkin Tart with Praline Crumble

Pumpkin Tart with Praline Crumble

A few weeks ago when we decided to stay in San Francisco for the holidays, I told Ashton that I was going to cook a vegan Thanksgiving dinner for us. No turkey. No turkey gravy. No butter, cream, whipped cream… You can imagine how well […]

Cardamom Pear Muffins

Mini Blueberry Cashew Cheesecakes

Mini Blueberry Cashew Cheesecakes

After reading the title, I know that some of you are probably thinking, “Uhhh. I don’t know about these. I don’t know how much cashews can really taste like cheesecake…” You’d be surprised. I’ve made these bad boys for about a dozen people now, asking […]

Vanilla Coconut Cashew Ice Cream

Vanilla Coconut Cashew Ice Cream

So I’m just going to be totally honest here, this doesn’t taste exactly the same as real ice cream, but it’s definitely really good. It settles that intense, ice cream-craving demon inside you and goes nicely on warm pies, brownies, even cookies. Plus, it’s a […]
