What’s more perfect than a big bowl of warm lentil soup to comfort you through those cold wintry days. The best thing about this soup is how minimal the recipe is without lacking on the flavor. Serve it up with some rustic bread that’s been slightly toasted and enjoy with your family and friends.el
When you have to make a dessert that is easily shareable, these bars are your go-to dessert. With a simple glaze that covers the top, these homemade applesauce bars are the perfect treat! The best way to enjoy these bars are when they come out of the oven and have slightly cooled. The warm sensation with Fall flavors and cinnamon glaze is a finger-licking good recipe.
In a bowl, combine the sugar, apple sauce, and oil. Mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a separate bowl and add it to the wet mixture. Stir until combined. Fold in the raisins and nuts.
Grease and flour a 13×9-inch baking pan and add the cookie bar mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before topping with glaze.
Chef’s tip: You can swap the raisins for another type of dried fruit of your choosing.
When breakfast rolls around in the morning, this oatmeal with berries and chocolate granola is the best. Drizzling the warm oatmeal and toppings with some agave gives a perfect sweetness to the meal that isn’t over powering like maple syrup can tend to be. Topping your oatmeal with my homemade granola is a great way to add some extra crunch!

One of my favorite things I recently acquired a taste for are my grandmothers cucumber and onion salad, which is marinated in vinegar and sugar overnight. The sweet taste and tangy flavor from the two ingredients give this side dish the perfect touch it needs.
Yields 2 cups
Serves 2-3 people
1 medium onion, sliced very thin
1 English cucumber, sliced thin
1/4 cup vinegar to start then 1/2 cup of more
1-1/2 tsp. organic cane sugar
Thinly slice the onion, cucumber, and add to a mixing bowl.
In another bowl, add the vinegar, sugar, and stir combined. Pour over cucumber and onions and give a good toss.
Place into the fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight for best results.
Chef’s tip: Allow the cucumbers, onion, and “brine” to meld overnight for maximum flavor.
With the recent trend in CBD product, I thought now would be the perfect time to create some recipes with this oil infused. Guacamole is the best appetizer or snack in my opinion and has lots of healthy fats and flavor. This taco Tuesday, give this recipe a try with the added benefits of CBD oil. Personally, I’m creating this and a few other recipes for cancer patients that are trying to reduce the symptoms they endure with the pain, treatments, nausea, and mental coping. Now I know this may not be for everyone, and that’s simply okay- feel free to omit the oil and you’ll still enjoy this amazing guacamole dip.
This is an easy no-fail meatless “meatloaf” recipe smeared with a homemade balsamic-ketchup glaze. Being thst it doesn’t take long to make, you’ll be ready to eat in no time. This flavorful recipe is one of my old favorites growing up- minus the meat, egg, and dairy products that are normally used. My favorite part about “meatloaf” is slicing it for leftover sandwiches the following day. Sometimes if you’re feeling creative you can top it with caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, some extra sauce, and cook it on a grill pan for the perfect crunch!
This Tomato Basil Soup is perfect for those indoor days when you just want a big bowl of soup! Combing an array of herbs, spices, tomatoes, and coconut cream makes for a delicious and flavorful recipe. Tomato soup is a great comfort food alone, but an even better one when paired with a well-toasted grilled cheese sandwich or French bread rounds. Taking the time to get fresh ingredients and boiling them down to release all of their flavors is really something you don’t get out of a can which is why I highly suggest to always make your own food as much as possible. I hope that you enjoy this recipe with your friends and family!
