Garlicy Chicken Lentil Soup

Mmmmm this soup. Garlic abound, tons of flavor and just wonderful. It reminds me of what I’d order at a deli in New York. It warms your soul. You should make it. Oh, and it’s so cheap! Chicken thighs and lentils will not break the bank in the least. I didn’t modify it from skinny…

Butternut Squash Lasagne with Pine Nuts and Sage (Vegetarian)

Butternut squash is a lovely fall vegetable. This lasagne is vegetarian and most definitely not vegan. It is filled with lots of decadent dairy. Milk, butter, cheese. Mmmmm. Straightforward cheeses, pine nuts and a simple, delicate cream sauce are all that make up the dish but it comes out oh so comforting and warm. It…

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Turbinado and Coconut Sugars)

I do adore chocolate chip cookies and have used this recipe for years. It’s still over the moon delicious, but I also wanted a healthier option. These are nuttier, complex and have so much yumminess going on. The slight crunch from the whole wheat flour is fabulous and the coconut sugar has a really wonderful…

Warm Spiced Apple Cider

Make Your Own DIY Cold Brewed Coffee Concentrate (French Press Method)

French press coffee is absolutely, positively wonderful. It requires no electricity and the flavors of the coffee are really brought out by the steeping method. I love it hot, but have found it maybe even more enjoyable (personally) cold. Cold brewed french press is the best of all worlds, it’s easy, cheap and yummy. If…

Lovely Green Tea Honey Lemonade

I am not so secret fan of Starbucks. I was a much bigger one when I went to work every day. These days, I let myself indulge maybe once or twice a month. The green tea lemonade they have was the perfect summertime (or anytime) drink, but of course it is filled with chemicals and…

Roobis Vanilla Chai Latte

I adore chai in all it’s forms, but really I just like warm, slightly sweetened vanilla-flavored milk with spices laced through it. The tea matters, but not as much as the aforementioned creamy spice combination. In pregnancy, most doctors recommend up to 2 cups of coffee a day, or 200 mg of caffeine. I usually…
