Black Forest Protein Smoothie

If you’re wondering what “Black Forest” means, then I have a cake to introduce you to. A Black Forest Cake is chocolate-covered cherries in cake form: chocolate cake, cherries, and whipped cream. This Black Forest Protein Smoothie was inspired by that cake, and I love it because it seriously tastes like dessert… BUT IT’S BREAKFAST!

Champagne + Almond Cake

Is there any better way to celebrate any imaginable occasion than to bake a cake infused with the liquid embodiment celebration itself? I think not. This Champagne + Almond Cake combines the subtle tastes of champagne with the gently sweet creaminess of almond. This delicately sweet duo is the perfect cake for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, a birthday, New Years, or, you know… a Tuesday.

Green Juice Recipe

I was so happy to see how much love my Apple Carrot + Ginger Juice post got! Since so many people were thirsty for more, I’ve got another freshly-squeezed recipe for you today. My Green Juice may not sweet, but it’s bursting with nutrients and flavor. This isn’t your average celery juice, and that’s exactly why I love it.

Instant Pot Tortellini Soup

My Instant Pot Tortellini Soup is full of flavor, beautiful bright veggies, plump tortellini, and is a little bit creamy. It’s one of our favorite soups come soup season, and with the Instant Pot, it’s ready in a flash. If you don’t own an Instant Pot, I’ve included steps for making it in a crockpot.

Apple Carrot + Ginger Juice

Making your own juice doesn’t have to be complicated or hard. It’s fun to experiment and see what flavor combinations work and to incorporate fresh produce into your diet. This is one of our go-to juices. It’s packed with vitamin c, is naturally sweet, and has a little spice to it.

Almond Cranberry Coffee Cake

This Almond Cranberry Coffee Cake is bursting with flavor. The almond meal, extract, and toasted almond on top give the gave a deliciously sweet and nutty flavor. The sweet and toasty almond flavor perfectly compliments the juicy, tartness of fresh cranberries.

Instant Pot Cran Apple Butter

We went apple picking and came home with about 6 pounds of apples. What to do with all that fresh, sweet goodness? Tart it up with some fresh cranberry and make Instant Pot Cran Apple Butter, of course! This recipe is so easy, mildly tart, not too sweet, and full of warm fall spices. It’s perfect on… well… everything!

Brown Butter Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of my all-time favorite candies, and putting them in cookie form and including browned butter? Oh man. If someone stole one of these cookies from the cookie jar, it was probably me… and it was definitely more than one.
