Vegan Jalapeño Poppers

Hello friends! We are getting close to Thanksgiving, and I am feeling so satisfied with my life.

I am thankful for my wonderful husband and our pets.

I am thankful for the loving support system that surrounds us, with our parents, siblings, grandparents, and so many parts of our family.

I am thankful for the abundant world in which we live and for all of the beautiful things that there are to see and experience on earth.

I am thankful for the delicious and healthy foods that are available to me, and I am thankful for the various opportunities that help me to create recipes and grow this blog with all of you.




Baked Strawberry Oatmeal

Friends, I am so excited! I have been in a little bit of a creative funk for the past few weeks, with little motivation to create or photograph new recipes, and I just hit a wave of inspiration. Maybe its just that I am finally feeling at home in our new world of California and our new lifestyle as college students, but I am feeling good and I am excited to share all of the goodness and happiness with you!



Up on today’s yummy food agenda is this warm baked strawberry oatmeal. It is so perfect for a chilly fall day. Plus, it is so much less labor intensive that stove-top oatmeal. With this one, you can just pour all of the ingredients into an oven safe bowl, pop it into the oven for 35-40 minutes, and prepare your cuddly warm reading space while it bakes. Then when its done, let it cool for about five minutes, and then dig right in.

Baking these fries is really one of the easiest healthy food swaps. I make it a goal here to seek out the yummiest and the healthiest foods to share with you, and this baked french fry recipe is one that I have worked on for a while without sharing because I wanted to perfect the technique to make it as yummy and as healthy as possible. After figuring out a great method and trying out the completed recipe MANY times, I finally took photos before eating them all I finally decided that it was ready to share.
