Vegan Cinnamon Scone Breakfast Cookies


I have a confession to make. These Vegan Cinnamon Scone Breakfast Cookies were supposed to be scones. Not cookies. But well, the scones turned out very flat. And as you can see, they look nothing like a scone!   However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I decided that these failed scones look […]

Cashew Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream


I invented this Cashew Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream to go with my Organic Pumpkin Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes, and it turned out so delish that I decided to honor it with its own post! One the great things about cashew whipped cream is that it’s easy to add other flavors to it without it losing its […]

Mini Cashew Pumpkin Pies With My Mini Me


These Mini Cashew Pumpkin Pies With My Mini Me were so much fun to make because we used baked mini pumpkins for the filling! They were pumpkins that arrived in our Greenling Local Box, and they were actually eatable! How fun is that?! I have two recipe options for the filling; one uses cashews and the […]

Organic Pumpkin Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes


Only two and a half weeks until Thanksgiving! But who’s counting? My kids get a week off of school, and I can’t wait!  For me, one of the highlights of holiday breaks is the lazy mornings. I can’t wait to sleeeeeeep in! As a mom of three early-risers, sleeping in usually means setting out cold cereal […]

Dairy-Free Sausage Pockets


A trip to visit my husband’s family in Iowa this Summer was the inspiration for these mini Dairy-Free Sausage Pockets. We wanted to get an early morning start on our 10-hr. drive to Madrid, Iowa, so that meant breakfast in the car. Well, McDonald’s sausage biscuits kind of sounded good, but then I knew that once I […]

Organic Potato and Sausage Hash


While this is definitely not one of your more glamorous-looking meals, it is one of the most delicious! What this dish lacks in sexy looks, it definitely makes up for in flavor and simplicity! I’ve never liked the word ‘hash’. It just sounds like. . . well, like everything is just sort of thrown together haphazardly. […]

Organic Strawberry Banana Whip


Lunches around here always include some type of fresh organic fruit. Since we avoid processed foods, we rarely eat things like chips, Jell-O pudding cups, fruit snacks, or fruit cups.  So if we run out of fresh fruit, lunches tend to be sort of well, boring. But sometimes, we run out of fresh fruit. And that’s […]

Watermelon Strawberry Slushy


It’s September, and it’s still hot here in Texas. My kids practically demand a smoothie or Banana Whip every day after school! Not that they’re allowed to demand particular foods. But well,  they REALLY want something cold after school. This Watermelon Strawberry Slushy was the perfect cold, after-school thirst quencher! In fact, my daughter said, […]

I’ve narrowed my shopping down to the stores which consistently have the best prices on organic food, and will be posting what I find! I’m starting with organic vegetable cost comparison. I will update this […]

2-Minute Organic Mango Slush {With Rum}


It’s Saturday. One of those great and rare Saturdays when there’s nothing on the calendar! I love it when we can just relax and not worry about being somewhere on time. The only problem with these Saturdays is that they always trick me. They trick me into thinking that I’ll have a day to relax. […]
