Recipe: Vegan Ninjabread Cookies

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Yesterday I had the urge to bake, which I haven’t had in a awhile… I dreamt that I had a cookie company that catered for fashion shows, then woke up dead set on baking gingerbread cookies. So random. Coincidentally it was also National Pastry Day! I had planned to use […]

Recipe: Vegan Vanilla Cornbread

After my somewhat fail as a vegan, which you can read about here… I had an epic comeback. I was more determined than ever to have a crap free diet (mostly because I was sick of being sick). I was eating vegetable soup everyday and lots of grains. I wanted to incorporate sturdier foods this […]

Recipe: Candy Apple Banana Pancakes

There’s just something special about fall. We moved to LA over the summer, so leaves changing colors, caramel apples, pumpkin spice lattes, and apple pie give me these nostalgic, warm & fuzzy feelings…I woke up this morning murmuring about candy apples & my grandma’s pancakes lol. However, I’ve been on a strict vegan diet lately so I’ve been […]

Corn Porn & My Love for All Things Corny

Do you like corn? I love corn. I’m from Missouri, so I’ve always had a lust for corn. I like corn in my salads, on my pizza, tortillas, cornbread, corncake, popcorn, sweet corn, corn grits, and corn chex. Whether grilled, fried, creamed, blue, white, or yellow corn; I don’t discriminate. Dominicans are known for making […]

Recipe: Vegan & Gluten Free S’mores Pop Tarts

I’ve always loved Pop Tarts and S’mores have been SO good to me, but the thought of a store bought S’mores Pop Tart sickens me to this day. HOWEVER, I had a dream that eating a S’mores Pop Tart could cure cancer so I decided to come up with a recipe I would even eat! […]

Recipe: Cinnamon Rolls From The Gods

Who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls?! Growing up I ate the store-bought kind for YEARS, until I taught myself how to cook. In this recipe, I’ve taken a classic cinnamon roll and added a tropical twist. These were necessary this past winter during a series of arctic snow storms! Anybody that knows me, knows I HATE […]

Recipe: Paleo Dessert Crêpes

A few years back I ate at this AWESOME restaurant called “Wang Gang.” They only stayed open for a few months, but during that time I had at least 20 chocolate spring rolls. These sound gross, but they weren’t anything like traditional spring rolls. They reminded me of a chocolate phyllo being rolled into little […]

HOW TO: Write A Bestseller Overnight

Around Thanksgiving 2014 I began to notice how many of my relatives were suffering from debilitating illnesses like diabetes, and cancer. At both Thanksgiving, and Christmas dinner these same individuals would pile their plates high with salty, fatty, and sugary foods. They were addicted to the foods that were ruining their lives. The Cajun Caveman […]
