Grain Free Thanksgiving Stuffing

Grain Free Thanksgiving Stuffing

GRAIN FREE THANKSGIVING STUFFING This ain’t your mama’s Stove Top Stuffing…though, how good was that back in the day?! Can I get a HELLO from all you children raised in the 80s that lived off of that stuff? I still have fond memories of the boxed stuffing but will never go near the stuff again. Thank God...
A FUN Thanksgiving Table Setting Idea

A FUN Thanksgiving Table Setting Idea

During my trip to Indiana while visiting my mommy (I just love that woman!), she exposed me to the world of Cricut and craft-making galore. Now I’m no stranger to crafts. Oh no. Crafts are my jam, people. Prior to starting up Fork and Beans I actually started up my own on-the-side greeting card line, I’ve written...

Mashed Cauliflower "Potatoes" with Gravy

Mashed Cauliflower “Potatoes” with Gravy

You wouldn’t believe the past 24 hours that I have had.  Snow, flight delays, missed connections and spending the night in Phoenix, AZ because of all the above, I am a bit tired to really write much about these Mashed Cauliflower “Potatoes” with Gravy. Forgive me. I finally got into Los Angeles this afternoon and...
Healthy Green Bean Casserole

Healthy Green Bean Casserole

I’m going to make this short and sweet because 1). I’m in Indiana currently to visit my mom and 2). It’s my birthday, so needless to say, I have birthday cake to make and snow coating the ground to watch. Sorry Healthy Green Bean Casserole, you’re not getting much of an intro because I gots things to...
Egg Free Mini Pumpkin Pies

Egg Free Mini Pumpkin Pies

There is something ubiquitous about Pumpkin Pie and my birthday*. It’s what I have requested as a birthday cake for many years since my special day lands rather closely to Thanksgiving. I have no issues with it either because it’s my favorite pie flavor ever and I guess any excuse to have it a week before T-Day...
Grain and Egg-Free Pie Crust

Grain and Egg-Free Pie Crust

Trying to avoid most grains is still a bit new to me and I’m afraid I feel very much as I did three years ago when I started to embark upon this gluten-free vegan baking journey. At times I am a bit overwhelmed and frustrated but I am also comforted by the fact that I have enough similar...
How to Survive the Holidays with Food Restrictions

How to Survive the Holidays with Food Restrictions

As Thanksgiving and Christmas are shortly approaching, I am quickly realizing that it means one thing: FOOD. Okay, okay, so clearly the holidays mean more than just food but if I am honest with myself, food truly is of great emphasis. So what does this mean for someone who has food restrictions? Whether you are gluten-free, vegan, Paleo, sugar-free,...
Grain-Free Everything Crackers

Grain-Free Everything Crackers

I have just a few recipes left that I made the week before I went on my doctor-prescribed diet (I’m now FOUR weeks in!) that are full of sugar and starches…and full of Fall. Once those are published, I am so excited to begin my new journey into a new way of good-for-your-body baking and cooking here on...
Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins

Muffins can be sexy and these muffins ARE sexy. They’re moist, flavorful, stuffed with pumpkin and cinnamon, and talk about each morsel that falls into your mouth. They are the perfect marriage of two of my favorite things: Pumpkin and Coffee Cake, thus I bring to you Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins. Gluten-free. Vegan. Just a batch of super sexy...
Halloween Monster Ding Dongs

Halloween Monster Ding Dongs

It’s not too late! You still have time before Halloween strikes to make these Halloween Monster Ding Dongs (snickering because I’m immature). The recipe base if from my original recipe for Ding Dongs, which probably is one of my top 3 favorites of all time from the site. I’m not even kidding, friends. It will...
Carrot Banana Bread

Carrot Banana Bread

I know that this recipe for Carrot Banana Bread might not be the best time to do this but I have been a bit quiet for a few weeks now about what has been going on with my health so I figured now is the best time to do so (if you care to know). If you...
