roasted garlic cauliflower soup

I love rainy fall days like this one. I loaded up my library bag with books I had to return, put on my rain coat, grabbed my umbrella, and I was out the door. After strolling up to the library, dropping off some books in exchange for another pile of hygge books waiting for me,…

pumpkin pie overnight oats

These easy, delicious, healthy overnight oats taste just like pumpkin pie! I love to find ways to enjoy all the yummy flavors of Fall without compromising my healthy way of eating. I’m not saying I never splurge, I definitely do, but I like to eat healthy 90% of the time, and there’s no reason it…

North Coast ~ Lake Superior ~ 2021

Can I just tell you how completely amazing and fabulous the Minnesota State Fair was this year? It was so much fun and such a great feeling to be in a crowd of people again. I didn’t realize how much I’d missed it until I experienced it again. I missed people! We had a beautiful…

chocolate chip scones

I’ve had a craving for scones the last couple days. The tall, flaky, buttery kind I used to make every day at the tearoom. I haven’t attempted making them vegan until now, and they really did turn out great! So, roll up your sleeves, gather your ingredients, and put the kettle on. Time to make…
