Chickpea, Kale, and Acorn Squash Pappardelle Pasta is too good not to share!

It’s early April as I’m writing this, with an unseasonably warm temperature projected for today: 79 degrees! Seventy-nine degrees! Having grown up here in Metro-Detroit and encountered many a snow flurry this time of year, I know what an anomaly this 79-degree day is. It’s not weather that calls for a pasta dish laden with hearty greens and a creamy squash sauce. Or is it?

Creamy (Dairy-Free) Sweet Potato, Kale, and Cannellini Bean Soup

Soul-soothing vegan goodness – that’s Creamy (Dairy-Free) Sweet Potato, Kale, and Cannellini Bean Soup!

It’s March, and here in Michigan, March means mega wax-and-wane weather. We’re in the midst of a warm spell bringing temperatures in the mid-60s, which feels downright Floridian after winter’s ice and chill. Four days from now, the high is projected to be 38 degrees. Basically, the weather is ever-changing, its progression nonlinear, unpredictable. And unpredictability can feel disconcerting, especially for me of the Type A personality and lover of planning and order and checklists – and especially in these wholly unpredictable COVID times. But you know what soothes a soul in the midst of uncertainty? Soup. And Creamy (Dairy-Free) Sweet Potato, Kale, and Cannellini Bean Soup is a soup soul-soother (try saying that three times fast) of the utmost order!

I’m crushing hard on this Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Wild Rice Soup! It’s healthful; it’s hearty; it was born of a happy accident (and I’m a sucker for happy accidents).

Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter

Five-ingredient, naturally sweetened Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter is bringing its creamy decadence!

You know those foods you can eat with vigor for days on end? That’s Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter for me. It’s eat-by-the-spoonful delicious. And it scores bonus points for being a fairly healthful treat! The almonds lend it healthy plant-based fat, while the cinnamon and honey provide antioxidant goodness (especially when raw honey is used).

Dairy-Free White Chicken Chili for the win!

Despite having not one bit of dairy in it – no cow’s milk, no butter, no cheese, NADA! – this Dairy-Free White Chicken Chili brings incredible creaminess. It’s decadent and flavor-packed and makes hearts – and stomachs – rosy-glow, curled-up-by-the fire happy.

Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce

Every day is PB&J day with Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce!

Ice cream is an especially tantalizing treat when summer is bringing the heat. And ice cream that is both dairy AND processed-sugar-free? Well, that’s doubly nice. Add the classic complementary flavor combo of peanut-butter-and-jelly, and you’ve REALLY got a winner on your hands!
