Mushroom and Oat Veggie Burgers

Mushroom and Oat Veggie Burgers, Vegan and Gluten Free

Oat flour is truly a godsend.  It’s such an easy and affordable gluten free flour and I love that I can grind it at home!  Even better, it’s binding power is truly incredible. It makes vegan “burgers” and “meatballs” an absolute breeze to make.  It just needs to sit for 10 minutes after the boiling […]

Healthy Enchilada Casserole. Vegan, Gluten Free, Oil Free.

I grew up loving enchiladas so much.  My mom grew up close to the California-Mexico border, and because of that, I grew up eating lots of Mexican food.  Enchiladas have always been our Christmas Eve meal, and they are definitely one of my favorite foods. In the past year I’ve started loving casseroles.  I’ve seen […]

Cookies are such a weakness of mine, they really are.  That’s why I love making small batch cookies.
