Almond Date Truffle

Almond Date Truffles
A vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo dessert. These truffles are also unbelievably delicious! Perfect for friends with (and without) dietary restrictions. A vegan friend brought this over for dessert one evening and I couldn’t stop eating them. She recently gave me this recipe and I have already made them three times! They are so easy to make. I love healthy guilt-free desserts!

Miso Soup

Miso Soup
Super easy and authentic miso soup recipe that takes just five minutes to put together. Having lived in Japan for 11 years, I am a little bit of a miso soup snob. This recipe tastes just like the miso soup that I remember having growing up…no more instant miso soup ever again!

Evelyn’s Raspberry Linzer Cookies

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESEvelyn modified Ina Garten’s Mini Linzer Cookies recipe and made it even better by adding pecans and putting less sugar. These buttery cookies are my favorite.

It is perfect as a vegetarian entrée or as a side dish. Read more ›

Tilapia Parmesan

I have always been scared of preparing a dinner with fish because I have never done it before! This recipe took me out of my comfort zone and pushed me to explore new frontiers! When it is fresh out of the oven, the fish is tender and moist and the creamy sauce is out of this world! It is so simple and quick to make, you’ll (hopefully) be blown away.

This recipe has earned 4.7/5 stars with over 6500 reviews.
