[Vegan + Gluten Free!] Salted Dark Chocolate Cake with Fluffy Coconut Frosting! This weekend's baking included my dairy free, gluten free super chocolatey cake from the archives for my friend @tifforelie's birthday. 🎂 You can find the recipe on my blog through the link in profile! And if you're like me & thought a great dairy-free, gluten-free cake was a laughable idea...think again! I swear by this cake. Tiff is off sugar, so we even made it sugar free (!!!) by using monkfruit sweetener instead. It was an insane feat of baking science and so good. 🍽 If you're someone that has severe dietary restrictions or you have a loved one with them, then this cake is like a miracle. I know it can be painful to live with restrictions, so I hope this recipe helps! You can flavor it with different things like coffee, lavender, or whatever inspires you, but I like it pretty simple with just a bit of sea salt though the lavender is a nice touch. 💌 If you don't want to miss a recipe (we've got an easy, vegan golden milk inspired soup + all about why I take a turmeric supplement tomorrow!), I would be so honored if you joined the community!

Protein packed, vegan Lemony Kale + White Bean Detox Salad with Charred Tempeh, Avocado, and Quinoa. Brand new, healthy, quick & easy, and SO addictive! Click the link in my profile to get it now! ??‍♂️ I actually call this the "Matt Salad" or "Malad" for short because @matthewlud whipped this up for our little team one afternoon, and we were like ummm...this needs to be on the blog! It takes 10 minutes to make, five if you're the kinda person that keeps cooked grains on the ready (you should!) AND I've included five creative ways to use the leftovers so you could whip up a big batch of this salad and get SIX meals out of it from soup to wraps to breakfast hash! Not to mention all of the ingredients are super easy to find and you likely already have some of them on hand (and if you're like us, it's stuff you pretty much always have in the fridge.) Dare I claim his salad brings kale's sexy back? I think I do. ✈️ I'm about to take off from the teeny tiny Waco airport after a mind blowing two days at @jennakutcher's mastermind learning from her and 28 other boss women. I really can't put into words how wonderful it was—I'm gonna need to process before I can really describe it to you. Suffice to say, I'm inspired, wheels are turning, and I'm psyched for 2018! I'm even thinking about starting a podcast. If I did, what would you want to hear me talk about? What type of people would you want me to interview? I'm curious what would get you to tune in!

Rose Apple Tart Made With Pink Pearl Apples And Rosewater Frangipane
Tis the season for apple tarts. Not that I'm baking any just yet. I'm so desperate to move back into our house I can't stand it...I miss my kitchen beyond words. And when I get back in it one of the first things I'm going to do (after setting up our nursery!!) is order pink apples & wild mushrooms from @mikuniwildharvest. I have this muscatel vinegar (my new favorite vinegar...move over sherry) I've been dying to try with mushrooms & ricotta gnudi, and I've been dreaming of these rosey apples all year.
Moon Mother Elixer Mocktail
A guest post by @woodenspoonherbs a Guide to Herbs for Pregnancy & a recipe for this mocktail, the Moon Mother Elixir. It's an herbal infusion of hibiscus, red raspberry leaf, nettle, and oatstraw combined with ginger kombucha and a hint of rose water. Link in profile! The herbs are chosen for their benefits during pregnancy but this drink would make a great addition to any table, and I like to keep it or a rendition of it on hand to drink when I like. The poetry & power of herbalism works, for me, in perfect harmony with the earthy femininity that is motherhood. @woodenspoonherbs sells a pregnancy kit, a new mother kit, and a traveler's kit as well as a whole slew of other herbal remedies in her store. Stay tuned for the second part of this series, herbs for postpartum!
Spicy Soba Greens And Shitake Miso Soup
In case you missed it! My recipe for Spicy Soba, Greens & Shiitake Miso Soup is on the blog, the last in my series Expecting Eats (at least the last one written while expecting!) It was a staple long before pregnancy, and it's super quick & easy to whip up. While great for expecting & nursing moms (nutritionally amazing), it's equally as satisfying for spicy food lovers & fans of the Japanese pantry. I eat this soup with a glass of cold milk to temper the heat of the chili paste & togarashi powder in the recipe & to compliment it with a creamy sweetness next to the intense umami. F
Lavender And Earl Grey Infused French Toast With Sugared Blueberries
An instant brunch classic: London Fog French Toast paired with a glass of creamy, sweet milk (no secret among my favorite beverages). Infused with bergamot scented Earl Grey tea & lavender and topped with meyer lemon zest and Earl Grey & lavender sugar dusted blueberries for good measure, this french toast can be either baked for brunch for a crowd or skillet fried for an intimate breakfast for two. Double, triple, quadruple as needed to fit your brunch needs!
Tahini Chickpea Soba Noodles
In case you missed it, one of my favorite pregnancy recipes: soba noodles (hooray for buckwheat!) with chickpeas, spinach, scallions, and a tahini miso sauce (inspired by a long time favorite tahini miso dressing from @cookieandkate). It's a crowd pleaser, happens to be 100% plant based & gluten free, is just as good room temp or cold as it is warm, and takes all of ten minutes to throw together. Whether you're expecting or just looking for a quick dinner or picnic dish, we got you.
Spiced Lemon Preserve Jar
Th ultimate edible last minute gift DIY: spiced preserved lemons. Quick, easy, and inexpensive. The how to is now on the blog so if you're scrambling last minute (like me!) grab some lemons, salt, spices, and a jar! They add so much to any dish you put them in. I'm addicted.
Portuguese Green Soup With Chorizo
A winter warmer. Caldo Verde, Portuguese green soup with chorizo. I made this what seems like ages ago but I'm craving it again. If you also find t craving inducing, you can find the recipe on @foodandwine's website...just search caldo verde!
Beer And Spice Brined Roast Duck
Try mixing it up with a duck instead of a turkey this Thanksgiving! This bird was brined in spices & beer, inspired by a @ladyandpups recipe. And the dish above it is just some fennel baked with local cheese in a fair amount of cream with a hit of nutmeg and cayenne. Unbeatable in its simplicity, this gratin is a rich, show stopping stand by. Everything on the table can be found at @anthropologie.
