Gluten-Free Vegan Lemon Sugar Cookies

With a hint of citrus and packed with a soft crunch, these Lemon Sugar Bunny Cookies are a must-make for your household this coming Easter.

Cinnamon ABC Crackers (gluten-free vegan)

It’s official. I am entering that place in life where I can no longer do certain things with my body without negative repercussions. So here’s the deal: My job requires a lot of sitting at a computer. That, mixed with my dad’s terrible spinal genes (that’s a real thing, right? ha) causes for deep pain in my lower...
Thin Mint Oreos

Thin Mint Oreos

So I finally put on my St. Paddy’s Day spirit on; an ode to the day of all-things green. Riddle me this: What do you get when you marry homemade Mint Oreos and Thin Mints? Besides one of my favorite cookies that I have created to this day, you get Thin Mint Oreos. I’m sure...
Homemade Moon Pies

Homemade Moon Pies

I made you a special treat and wrapped them up in plastic. Can you guess what they are? Can you? Oh who am I kidding. You already know the answer since I gave it away with the title of this post. Note to self: Make these questions less obvious and more difficult. The answer is...

Gluten-free Vegan Nutter Butter Bites

Oatmeal Cream Pies, Animal Crackers…and now gluten-free vegan Nutter Butter Bites?! I’ve gone mad, I tell you, MAD. I’m a woman obsessed with all-things childhood favorite treats. Even Matt took a bite out of one of these and with eyes wide open he said, “Dude, those taste like the real deal.” No, actually he said...

Okay, have a seat my friend. Then again, you probably are already sitting down as you read this so humor me here and re-enact the motion of sitting down. So I’ve been super inspired this week. I’m reconnecting with my original roots here on Fork & Beans. Through this mini facelift that I just underwent–the...

Gluten-free Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pies

Today I’m visiting an incredible blogger friend Sarah of Sarah Bakes Gluten-Free and I really wanted to make her an ultra-special treat. What better way to spread baking cheer than with homemade gluten-free vegan Oatmeal Cream Pies? I knew that you would agree. I’m surprised it has taken me this long to recreate Oatmeal Cream Pies. Probably...

Homemade Chocolate Teddy Grahams

I’m always an advocate for balance. I have been through the wringer with a variety of diets (you can read about my weight loss story here) but the only thing that has actually kept my mind in a good place with food but has kept the weight off was removing this pendulum shift of going to extremes in my...

There’s an amazing party going on over at Keepin’ It Kind where the cookies are abounding. Our gracious (and oh-so-gorgeous) hostess with the mostess, Kristy, has been parading cookies galore all over her place, enticing us to bake while we still have the energy within. Today I was invited to come on over and I thought I would bake her something...
Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Remember those Peanut Butter Chocolate Kisses Cookies you once loved making as a kid? You know, the ones that you ate more of the Kisses than actually put on the cookies itself?  And remember these homemade White Chocolate Peppermint Kisses (click on the underlined words for the link) that I made a couple of weeks...
Mini Gingerbread Houses

Mini Gingerbread Houses

Writing a cookbook has been a cathartic experience for me. Yesterday, I worked diligently in the kitchen, working hard to finish up my manuscript and I kept enduring failure after failure. In fact, this entire week has been chockfull of failures that has left me questioning what the hell I am even doing. It’s beginning...

So I’m feeling generous. It’s one more day until Halloween and we need to find a way to share all the Halloween spookiness and fun that we can squeeze in. This totally calls for a celebratory cookie…and not just any ol’ cookie–a cookie that screams Halloween.  As I shared with my last post, I’m on a pressing...
