Shake It Bay-Bee Shake It!

As part of our new way of eating for the new year, we’ll be doing our best to up the leafy greens in our daily diet and cut the meat at least one day a week. Given we’re HUGE fried chicken lovers (with a honkin’ side of steak, of course) combined with our busy schedules, this new found culinary plan has potential of being quite a challenge. But when it comes to our health we refuse to give up, so we considerRead more

RAW and VEGAN Raspberry ‘Cheesecake’

I have to admit I don’t like cheesecake. At all. Ever. Which is fine because it doesn’t really like me either. At least not my gut. There’s definitely no love lost in their relationship but I do have to say I LOVE this cheesecake. Which is awesome because it actually loves me too. It told me so in the way it didn’t have me writhing in pain or running to the loo or clearing out a room in 10 seconds flat. So I repeat, I LOVE thisRead more

Savory Mac & Cheese Cupcakes, Please!

OOOOH WEEEE, MAC & CHEE!!! There’s nothing we love more than taking the foodie treats of our youth and revamping them into something a bit more ‘grown up’. Case in point – Macaroni & Cheese.

Easy No-Bake Vegan Pumpkin Pie

It’s safe to say that when it comes to Fall, Pumpkin is the superstar of the season. From adorning our doorsteps to filling our lattes, muffins and more, we just can’t get enough of this bright orange gourd. Maybe that’s why every holiday doesn’t feel complete without atleast one pumpkin pie on the table. But for those of us who can’t handle the high saturated fats of a gluten-filled crust, heavy cream or tons of processed sugar, we can beRead more

Give Love Not Gluten This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we all have our way of celebrating. From dining at a fancy restaurant, making enough candy-laden cards to fill a school bus or boycotting the ‘hallmark holiday’ all together, we are ALL subjected to a “Sea of Red” at every store. Its BEYOND obnoxious. Not to mention totally Gluten laden. But what to do if you or Valentine suffer from Celiac Disease, Lactose Intolerance or a very unfortunate (but very real) Chocolate Allergy?Read more
