Pt 2. Gettin Started with Sourdough Bread

Now that you have your fridge starter going, you’re ready to bake! For most recipes that I’ve tried for a classic sourdough bread loaf or “table loaf,”  has a three-day baking schedule. Based on personal preference, you could go from feeding to baking in two or three days. See sample baking schedules below!  3 Day…

Pt 1: My Intro to Sourdough Bread

I recently received a sourdough starter from a friend of a friend and have blossomed into a full-blown, obsessed-with-sourdough baker. After years of experiencing pain after eating bread, I’d all but accepted my fate. Not gluten intolerant, but definitely sensitive. So, I just avoided it. Except for when I didn’t. I am certainly not a…

Perfect Pie Crust Dough

The perfect pie crust recipe doesn’t exi— 😍 The title is not an exaggeration! I’ve used this recipe to make pies, galettes, tarts, etc and it simply does not fail. It’s such a simple pie crust recipe and the dough is so easy to handle (not brittle!) and can even be used to make a…

Most are actually suitable for gluten-free, vegan, and paleo diets — whaaat?! This wasn’t intentional, but there ya go.

Spiced Apple Galette

This weekend, I was craving a “fall” treat and apple pie sounded like a great option but I didn’t think I’d have the time to do a pie. So, I decided to make a simple galette instead. Genius! I started with this recipe from Food & Wine and tweaked the ingredients a bit to have extra ~spice~…

Here’s a roundup of some of my all-time favorite summertime treats that are healthy, no-bake, and naturally gluten-free, vegan, and/or paleo. Enjoy! – H PS – Apparently I really like blueberries,…

Cherry Almond Energy Bars (gf/vegan/paleo)

It’s been a while (like years) since I’ve posted an energy bar recipe but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been making them! Here’s a recipe for a batch made with just three simple ingredients: cherries, dates, and almonds. The cherries have such a nice tartness and pair well with almonds. The dates are kind of…

Lemon Tahini Buddha Bowl (gluten free/vegan)

If you’ve ever visited Asheville, North Carolina, you’ve probably eaten at or at least heard of Green Sage Cafe — it’s kind of a staple. It’s safe to say I absolutely LOVE the Buddha Bowl from Green Sage… I order it more often than I’d like to admit. Here’s my take on how you can…

Black Bean Hummus (gluten free/vegan)

All I have to say about black bean hummus is that it has been on heavy rotation at our house lately because we can’t. stop. eating. it. It’s simple, tastes awesome, is sooo much less expensive than store-bought black bean hummus, and is good for you! What’s not to love about all of that goodness? Oh,…

Healthy Broccoli Salad (gluten free/vegan)

I just devoured — and I am NOT exaggerating here — an absurd amount of this broccoli salad over my kitchen sink before writing this. I couldn’t help myself! Something about that creamy, crunchy salad just instantly transports me back to summers as a kid. It makes me think of the cookouts my dad and stepmom would…

Breakfast Burritos with Egg Tortillas (gf/paleo)

New recipe, fresh off the griddle, literally. This morning I had an idea to try making a tortilla out of eggs because we didn’t have any large tortillas/wraps and guess what… it works! I’m probably more excited about this than I should be but, whatever. These tortillas are made from eggs and a splash of cashew milk…

Shakshuka (gf/paleo/veg)

If you’re not familiar with shakshuka, prepare to have your mind (and tastebuds) blown. This dish, pronounced shack-shoe-kuh, basically consists of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce and believe me, it’s reeeeeally good. It’s also super easy to make but looks impressive, so be sure to bookmark this for the next time you have friends or…
