Chocolate Cookie & Sorbetto Sandwiches

Chocolate Cookie & Sorbetto Sandwiches

Ciao my bellas! What do you do with vegan chocolate cookies and sorbetto (sorbet) ? You combine them into a cookie sandwich and eat them together, of course! So, let us discuss these cookies. Oh wow, where do I start? Well, the main ingredients are black beans and oat flour, so we’re talking guilt free cookies here. I added chocolate chips because chocolate chips give me life and almost everyone loves them. Also, the choc chips add that little bit of extra sweetness that the cookies need since they are not overwhelmingly sweet. Amazing. And they’re sooo chewy!! Ah, the best part is the texture. Ok ok, now we can discuss the star of the show- SORBETTO. Oh how I love thee sorbetto. What a sublime treat to finish off dinner. Then again, a dessert like this makes you want to skip dinner altogether. I used Ciao Bella Gelato + Sorbetto to pair with my chocolate cookies. Their brand is amazing and their gelato+ sorbetto is based upon an authentic Italian recipe. 





YUM. I used Pacific Northwest Raspberry and also Dark Cocoa Sorbetto for the sandwiches. They will definitely become your new faves.



Thank you for sponsoring this post Ciao Bella Gelato + Sorbetto.

Veggie and Barley Summer Salad

Veggie and Barley Summer Salad

Hellooo there! I come to you with good news. I have a salad recipe for you without…… lettuce. Yay for lettuce free salads, the best kind! I’ve made this recipe really easy for you too because all you need for the sauce is your favorite store bought guacamole. What? Yes. I’m guessing that I have your attention now, because who wouldn’t want a fantastic salad covered in guac? My second favorite ingredient in this whimsical dish is crispy tofu, which is perfect pan fried. I didn’t press the tofu, but I did drain the block by wrapping it in paper towels and setting it in a strainer on top of a bowl for an hour. As for the grain, well, (more…)

Healthy Homemade Vegan Pizza

Healthy Homemade Vegan Pizza

Happy #MeatlessMonday! Guess what time it is? It’s pizza partaaaay time. It’s a vegan pizza party (of course) filled with lots of plants, uber fabulous homemade pizza crust, refreshing pesto, marinara sauce, and a basil cashew cream sauce you probably daydream about. So I thought about buying premade crust but changed my mind about a minute later. Homemade anything is best and this crust is very easy to make. You can see just how perfect crust’s texture is in the pictures below! I bought jarred organic marinara sauce and I made the pesto and cashew cream from scratch, but don’t be intimidated because both are sooo easy to make. Healthy and Homemade Vegan Pizza was a huge hit with my family. It’s even approved by my carnivorous brother. The marinara and pesto sauces are a wonderful pairing and bursting with flavor, but the cherry on the cake is the basil cashew cream. If you want to make the fam a decadent, healthy, homemade and plant-based dinner, my vegan pizza is the perfect recipe for you.



You guysss, I’m so excited about this recipe. My Healthy Homemade Vegan Pizza is the perfect crowd pleaser for a dinner party! People won’t even realize that it’s healthy because the flavors are so bold and mouthwatering. 


This is what your crust should look like before you bake it. First, you’ll pop it in the oven for 15 minutes and then take it out, put on the toppings, and bake another 20 minutes. Then, perfection is achieved.

Peanut Butter & Raspberry No Bake Bars

Peanut Butter & Raspberry No Bake Bars

Hello there! It’s meee. Your no bake bar lovin’, self-proclaimed avocado toast connoisseur. I’m back with a brand new recipe and nope, avocados are not included. But don’t be discouraged, this is just as good and maybe even better. My Peanut Butter & Raspberry No Bake Bars are made with just six ingredients and can be on a plate near you within a matter of 30 minutes. They have to set in the fridge for a bit but I actually stuck my bars in the freezer for 25 minutes because I was just that impatient to wait for them. Patience truly is a virtue and I have absolutely none when it comes to food. Anyway, if you like peanut butter, which I’m guessing you do and you also like jam, then this is your bar of dreams. Frankly, I cannot describe in words how awesome these bars are, so it looks like you’ll have to make them to see for yourself. But really, anything involving creamy peanut butter and sweet yet somewhat tart hints of raspberry jam is music to your taste buds. More peanuts on top are optional of course, I just love that little bit of crunch. 


Ah, the ooey gooey goodness of the raspberries get me every time. What a perfectly delectable, sweet, tart and semi salty combo.
