As the air begins to carry a hint of autumn, I find myself desiring meals with a certain warmth & heartiness about them.

Amazing flavors and textures combine in this juicy & decadent gluten free blackberry galette with a crispy polenta rustic pie crust.
This beautiful galette is hands down one of the tastiest things I've ever made! The first bite, and I was sold.
I'm not sure if it's the perfect tart sweetness and juiciness of the blackberries touched by a kiss of cinnamon, or the amazingly divine crispy polenta crust that adds a wealth of flavor & texture to an already delicious pie filling. . .
A creamy, delicious beetroot & chickpea hummus. Gluten free, vegan, healthy, filling and so incredibly quick & easy to make!
Sometimes you just need that little extra boost of nourishment that is both filling & delicious. This is one such creation.
From the moment I whipped this up in the food processor, I had an immense amount of trouble not eating it all! It is just that good.
And, apart from being ridiculously yummy, it is supremely healthy as well!
Beets (or beetroots) are full of antioxidants, have amazing anti-inflammatory & detoxifying properties, and are an extra rich source of potassium, magnesium, folate & vitamin C (and they are chock full of fiber)! Combine that with protein rich garbanzo beans, and you have yourself one powerhouse of nutritious deliciousness!

As a stay at home mom, every day is an adventure (re: picking up food off of the floor 30 times a day). And, as a work from home food blogger, every day in the kitchen is an adventure as well (re: picking up food off of the floor 30 times a day!!). That is why I appreciate it even more so when I discover great products such as Mezzetta's wonderful line of marinara sauce products using the most delicious plum tomatoes from Italy's San Marzano region. All of the deliciousness of slowly cooked homemade marinara sauce, without any of the fuss!
Anything that adds a bit of ease to the adventure that is life, is always most welcome!
And, I don't know about you, but I can always use a shortcut in the kitchen that doesn't taste like one!
And for that, Mezzetta sure stands by their promise: "Simple. Rich. Real". I can attest. . .
Tahini and chocolate always go together. And, if you've never tried this delectable combo before, you are in for a real treat!
I created these when I was a craving a sweet treat that was not overly indulgent. Oats paired with very dark chocolate, protein & nutrient rich tahini, & sweetened by maple syrup make for a rather healthy & guilt free cookie! (Not to mention, only 5 ingredients!)
These delights are wonderfully chewy, very satisfyingly filling, ridiculously delicious and pair very well coffee (if I must say so myself)!
Beautifully crunchy and delicious gluten free and vegan crackers with subtle hints of fennel seed and turmeric!
These beautiful crackers have such an amazingly lovely flavor! The striking balance of fennel, sea salt, pepper and turmeric flavors really complement one another, and make for a wonderfully delightful snack.
The perfect crisp crunchiness of these crackers also make them the perfect choice for dipping or holding a variety of toppings; and you would never know that they were gluten free!
We personally love them as an accompaniment to our 'apples & cheese' night (Fridays!), as they really add a depth of boldness and flavor when served alongside other hors d'oeuvres.
And, did you know that both fennel seeds and turmeric have amazing medicinal properties?! You can read more about turmeric here in a previous recipe post of mine. As for the fennel seeds, not only are they high in fiber, iron, copper, potassium and folate, they also soothe the digestive process, act as a galactagogue (increasing breast milk production) in nursing mothers, and make for one powerful diuretic! I do love it when my food can be both incredibly tasty and healing -- don't you?
Whether you are looking for a tasty chip alternative, an appetizer for your next party, or a healthy kid-friendly snack -- these delicious crackers will please you with their outstanding flavor, texture, and magical healing properties!

This is one of my favorite ways to eat potatoes; and it makes for one warm, comforting and hearty dish!
