  • ☕️ Whoever originally came up with term “coffee cake”, thank you. I want to be your friend. Because you were not afraid to call it what it is, as in –> cake, for breakfast, is a cup of coffee’s best match. 👌🏻

This is my bakery style gluten-free coffee cake that has just the perfect ratio of sweet, crumbly streusel to soft spiced cake. You can see the crackly top if you swipe right. It’s a brunch favorite over here! The link to recipe is in my profile. ▫️

  • If there’s one cozy soup your winter self needs, it’s this tofu wild rice bowl of yum. Link to the recipe is in my profile. 📝🌿

This #wildrice soup is packed with lots of color and hearty vegetables like onion, celery, carrots, and a few mushrooms. It simmers with sprigs of thyme for warm undertones, and is finished with half & half to make it just creamy enough. 😋😋

  • 🎂 35. Gosh, that number is here for me. Today. But it’s certain things that give me insight to what my age is, rather than the number.
*
When I look in the mirror, it’s the lines and wrinkles showing themselves. The wider but healthier waistline. The fuller, but happier face. *
It’s being in love with the man of my dreams for 9 years, and buying a house together.
*
It’s a day comprised of organizing all the things, and the excitement of a 10pm bedtime.
*
It’s seeing your brother get married, and your first family photo together 10 years after your parent’s divorce. *
It’s feeling emotional with a flood of memories, over years passed. *
It is happiness, and appreciation for life.
*
That is, my 35.
❤️

  • 🔨 The full reveal of our modern minimalist #kitchenrenovation is on the blog! From before/photos, to our original design plans with the fabulous @thefauxmartha 🙏🏻, to the pivot we had to do when we unexpectedly bought a house 🙆🏼‍♀️ - and needed to complete the renovation with a tighter budget. In the end, it came together with the modern minimalist feel we had wanted all along. White with some warmth, and clean lines too! I’m so grateful for @bcherney taking on all of these projects. 💖 Link to the full scoop is in my profile. ▫️

  • 🍪 They’re that kind of chewy that bends. Flourless. And oh so peanut buttery. 😋 With toasty oats, chocolate chunks, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds too! These are my favorite gluten-free monster cookies, and the link to recipe is in my profile. *

  • 🔑 Just trying to spread the good word that cooking sweet potatoes in your #instantpot is the gateway to rockin’ 15 minute meals the rest of the week. 🙌🏻 I added quinoa, spinach, ranch, and pico to these. 😋😋 *
*
To cook the sweet potatoes, add 1 cup water to instant pot. Put trivet in, then add 4 medium sweet potatoes, whole. Close solid, and set to 18 minutes manual high pressure. Let naturally release. Eat right away, or store in refrigerator for 4 days. ▫️

  • i may be czech, but I am 💯 won over by these swedish pancakes. 😋 recipe is from @thefauxmartha’s cookbook, and was the first I made for the #OneCookbook A Month Club I created, and you’re all invited! *
The idea behind this came while moving, and realized I had sooooo many cookbooks that I had paged through and drooled over, but never actually cooked from. I wanted to change that, and figured there were probably others who had the same issue. So, each month I’m picking one sole cookbook for us to cook from (this month’s is #theminimalistkitchen), 4 total recipes - one each week. You can cook as many or as few as you want. It’s like a virtual cooking club!
*
I created a Facebook group to be the main hub, where we can chat about the recipes (over a glass of wine perhaps!), show each other photos of our dishes, talk about if or how we adapted them, and anything else you'd talk about in a #cookingclub. And each Sunday, I will do a Facebook live if the recipe we are cooking. All are welcome to join, just click the link in my profile! ▫️
