Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake Muffins (with GF option)

As promised in my last post, I have for you today a delicious coffee cake/muffin recipe. As I was panicking the day before my defense about whether to make coffee cake or muffins, I realized I didn’t have to choose: I could make coffee cake in muffin shapes! I adapted this recipe from The Savvy Vegetarian and […]

Pumpkin Pancakes

When I was a kid, my mom used to make this amazing pumpkin cake. It was moist, pumpkiny and nicely accented with fall spices. I’ve been craving pancakes lately, hence the recent savory zucchini pancakes, followed by the zucchini bread pancakes. Are we seeing a pattern here? Uh oh. I’ve also been reminiscing about that pumpkin cake and thought I should […]

Autumn Morning Glory Muffins

As I recall, I didn’t have my first morning glory muffin until later in life than I probably should have. I remember it well.

Raw Buckwheat Granola with Homemade Vanilla Hemp Milk

This weekend, I spent Saturday morning with a friend who I haven’t seen in ages. We went for a lovely walk at Lincoln Park along the water and then stopped in at Chaco Canyon Café in West Seattle on our way home for a little brunch. I’ve been doing a juice fast and/or eating only raw foods […]

Homemade Granola

The other day, Eric picked up an oat from the counter, ate it, and exclaimed, “I just found a yummy, cinnamony piece of oat on the counter!” “Oh!” I said, “I forgot! I made granola today!” It was so easy and low-impact a process I had forgotten all about it.  This granola recipe is adapted from my […]
