This jam recipe is very easy to make and delicious! The strawberry and peach are a perfect combination. I use pectin because it cuts down the cooking time and sugar significantly. You can cut this recipe in half for a smaller batch. This recipe makes approx. 12 8oz. jars. Enjoy!
This jam recipe is easy and makes really good plum jam. I use pectin because it significantly reduces the boiling time and sugar needed. I prefer using organic red or purple skin plums with organic sugar. This recipes makes six 8oz. jars. Enjoy!
These brownie bars are so easy and fast to make. You can make them vegan or not. I give both options. The peanut butter, banana, and chocolate are a wonderful combo! Great energy bars without loading you up on sugar. Your vegan and non-vegan friends will be impressed!
One of my favorite combinations - strawberry and rhubarb! This recipe makes six 8oz jars (maybe a little more) and is incredibly delicious. Low in sugar and I use 5 to 6 tsp pectin. I don't like sweet jam, so add more sugar if you want it to be sweeter. Rhubarb is a short season (April-July) so get cooking - don't let it pass you by! Enjoy.
This recipe came from the Culinary Arts Cookbook and it's very easy to make and delicious! The honey and cinnamon bring out the sweetness of the squash. This soup will impress your friends and family! I have tried other squashes with this soup and it's not as good, so stick with butternut. Enjoy!
These truffles are so delicious, super easy to make, and way better for you than regular truffles because there is zero cream in the recipe, which makes them vegan! My friends have nick-named them "good for you Truffles."
I have to credit Chef Jenny Brewer for this recipe and Allison Garcia for taking the photos. Your friends and family will love them - guilt free. Enjoy!
My husband found this recipe in a mountain bike magazine that we changed just a bit. This granola is really easy to make and very good. You can use oats, but I like to use multi-grain hot cereal that includes oats, barley, rye, and wheat. Enjoy!
This is a wonderful pumpkin, apple spice bread! I give both vegan and regular baking option, but I bake this vegan because the banana makes it super moist. This recipe makes two loaves. One option is to make one loaf and then save half the batter for muffins. Bake muffins for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
This recipe can be made vegan or not. It came from my high school boyfriend's grandmother (about 25 years ago!) They are really simple, extremely quick, and very good. I don't even like coconut that much, but I love these cookies. These are good cookies to bring to a dinner party or holiday party. Enjoy!
This jam recipe is very easy to make and delicious! The apple and blackberry go so well together. I use organic fruit and sugar - with very little sugar since the fruit is naturally sweet. I use pectin because it cuts down the cooking time and sugar significantly and makes the jam nice and thick. This recipe makes six 8oz. jars. Enjoy!
These cinnamon rolls are really delicious and easy to make. I make the dough the night before and assemble them, so in the morning just pop in the oven. These are great with or without frosting.
Original recipe came from Epicurious with a few of my own changes. Enjoy!
This is the best cranberry sauce! I make this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year and everyone just loves it. I have given this recipe to lots of friends and family over the years, and they are all still making it. It's easy to make and I know it will be a favorite at your dinner table! Give it a try and let me know what you think.

This is a take on my original Strawberry/Rhubarb jam recipe, and it is one of the most delicious jams I've made so far! The flavors are amazing - strawberry, rhubarb, orange, and honey, with just a little cinnamon. Super easy to make and you won't be disappointed. This recipe makes 8 half pint jars.
These cookies are delicious bites of chocolate goodness! This recipe only has 6 tablespoons of flour, so the texture is more fudge like than cookie. These cookies take a little longer to prep because they need to be chilled for about 60 minutes before baking. Well worth your time though - bake them up for a special dinner or party. Enjoy!
This avocado dressing recipe makes a nice, thick dressing to use in tacos, burritos, salads, fish, or sandwiches. It's always a big hit with all my friends when I make tacos. It's not a guacamole. But rather a sauce or dressing you can use beyond Mexican dishes. You can use regular yogurt or for your "vegan" friends, use soy yogurt. I've made it both ways and it's excellent. Try it!
This pumpkin jam, aka. pumpkin butter, is easy to make and really delicious. I only make it when sugar pumpkins are in season so I can use fresh pumpkin. Canned pumpkin is okay too. This is a jam recipe so perfect for gifts during the holidays. Use it just like jam on toast, scones, biscuits, and with cheese and crackers. If you like a little more spice, add in more cinnamon and nutmeg!
My vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies and so delicious and made with banana to replace the 2 eggs. Throw in a few nuts to spice things up if you wish! This recipe makes a lot of dough, so you can freeze or refrigerator the remaining dough to use later. Enjoy!
