Slow Cooker Taco Lentil Soup that’s both vegan and gluten free. You’ll love this easy meal packed with plant-based protein!

Currently writing to you from Detroit! I’ve been here since Friday hanging with my bestie Sarah while we bake, photograph, shop, drink Kombucha beer and jam out to Christmas music. I leave later today to get back into the groove of being at home for a while, working and recovering from turkey overload.

’Tis the season for Mariah Carey Christmas music on repeat while I sit in my pajamas and refuse to leave the house (besides grocery shopping and hitting up the gym).

A cozy healthy butternut squash sweet potato casserole sweetened with pure maple syrup. Topped with a crunchy almond flour oat topping! Absolutely amazing for Thanksgiving!

Happy Monday! I’ve been observing my life from the outside lately and watching it fly by faster than it ever has. I can’t get to half of the emails in my inbox and barely have time to figure out how we’re decorating our family room. We still don’t have a couch and our bedroom still isn’t all the way complete. My hope is that Thanksgiving will bring some quiet, relaxing time with a cup of tea and good food to fill my belly. (And that I’ll get to respond to some emails from you all, of course!)

I’m beyond grateful for your readership throughout the years and how I’m able to connect with many of you beyond just the recipes here.

Chai spices make this almond hazelnut butter recipe taste like your favorite chai tea latte. Spread it on toast, fruit or stuff it in sweet potatoes for the ultimate treat.

Every night when I go to bed I think about food combinations. I’m not joking. Pairing food combinations together eventually lull me into a beautiful sleep. In fact ever since we got our bed from Helix, I’ve been sleeping like a true angel!

Butternut squash and kale salad that’s both beautiful and flavorful! Tossed with pomegranate, toasted sliced almonds, goat cheese and a light dressing!

Well, here we are! It is officially fall.

I woke up the other morning and noticed a handful of golden yellow leaves falling to the ground. Do you remember collecting those when you were younger? I do. Anyway, the morning air has been brisk and wonderful. I’ve been opening our sunroom windows and letting in the afternoon breeze while I work on editing photo for the blog.

I think I have an underlying love hate relationship with pasta. I’ll go week, or sometimes even months (!!!)  without having it, and then for some reason I’ll dream up some good recipe or Tony will request an Italian meal and then we’re off on a pasta eating binge for days.

Two days ago it was right around 85 degrees here in Chicago… in September! Since the weather seems to be still favoring the summer months, I thought it would be perfectly acceptable to deliver this beautiful warm blackberry crisp made with almond flour, crunchy almonds & oats.

Oh boy were these nut free granola bars delicious! No, I’m not just saying that because this is my blog and I claim everything to be tasty af — it’s because I kept returning to the fridge to grab another, and then another! I could have eaten the entire pan right then and there.

First, let me share that these granola bars that were inspired by YOU! Yes, the lovely, loyal, incredible AK readers out there. These nut free granola bars came to fruition from your requests on my previous reader survey. While scrolling through your comments, I noticed that a few of you had allergies to nuts or you were baking for little ones who couldn’t have nut containing items in their lunchboxes.
