Vegan Matcha Cookies

Green tea and chocolate – a matcha made in heaven, no? I’ve recently acquired something of a matchaddiction. I can’t get enough of the stuff, and the endless list of health benefits aren’t helping me stop. If you aren’t familiar with matcha, it’s basically super concentrated green tea – think 10 cups of green tea…

Creamy Almond and Coconut Butter

What do you do when you find a giant bag of almonds shoved to the back of your cupboard? – Ya make that goooood nut butter. I wanted to give this almond butter some sort of twist. I remember picking up a jar of Meridian Coconut and Peanut Butter a while back and being so…

Cheat’s Ramen

There’s something about ramen that’s just so wholesomely satisfying to eat, especially on a gloomy day. I’ve tried to make the broth the traditional way in the past, but always found it too technically demanding. So here’s a much simpler version for you that can be whipped up in under half an hour. I hope…
