Coconut-Vanilla Chia Pudding with Cherry-Rhubarb Compote (dairy-, gluten- and grain-free)

If you’ve ever tried chia pudding, you’re probably in one of two camps: you love it, or you hate it.

Lazy Girl's Ginger Lemonade

This quintessential summer bevvy is a bit like me: refreshing, tart and spicy. Okay, probably more tart than anything!

Applesauce making

Tart Ruby Rhubarb Refresher

Rhubarb, Orange & Beet Juice sm

Every year when fresh rhubarb makes its rounds in my garden or CSA basket, I make only one of two things with it: rhubarb crumble (on its own or with another fruit) and an oat bar sandwiched with a rhubarb jam. It’s always the same. So predictable, I know! This year, as the opportunities to […]
