Spiced Ginger Kabocha Pie with Maple Coconut Cream {Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Paleo}

In an effort to make fall arrive here in California, I’ve been consuming pie as if it were some sort of fork to face rain-dance.

Really, it’s just something I’m trying out for the greater good. I will eat pie for breakfast in the name of chunky sweaters, and tall boots, and the California drought. I’ll happily open my pie hole for dessert, in the hopes of bringing a changing of the leaves, crisp fall air, hot toddies, and the right to stop sweating. Please, someone… anyone… turn off my armpit glands. I know this isn’t “healthy” to do, but since it’s divine intervention I’m asking for, I figure you can find a way to divinely redesign this girl’s pits so they’re no longer weeping under the weight of pie baking in summer temperatures. Speaking of my armpits– did you all catch episode seven of The So…Let’s Hang Out Podcast? It’s a doozy. […]

Honeydew, Mint & Cucumber Popsicles

There are times in life when it seems best not to open your eyes.

Perhaps you’re scared that if you open your eyes you’re going to see something that you simply can’t un-see. Life might change a little. An awkward moment might ignite into a full on fiasco. You’ll want to close those eyes back up, and shut them up tight with all of your feelings. Or, there are just moments where you wish you could turn off at least one of your senses. File this under the category of growing up living in a room that happened to be oriented just below the bedroom of my parents who were very much in love. Or, wanting to be suddenly struck blind upon accidentally walking into what would be considered a “key party” between much older consenting adults in a dear friend’s hot tub. These are the more unfortunate days of our lives. These are the moments where you wish for the opposite of super powers. Like, instead of “Girl with X-ray Vision” you’d simply be glad to exist as “Girl with No Eyes, Ears, or Gag Reflex”. […]

Roasted Strawberry & Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream {Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Date Sweetened, Paleo}

Okay. I admit the name of this recipe is long, complicated, and lacking a certain amount of finesse. I’m with you.

What would it be like if we named recipes like we named nail polish? Everything would be fun and flirty. Like, I could get away with calling this ice cream something like “Strawberry Pantie Dropper” or “Moist Vanilla Dreams” or maybe just “Kotex”. This seems slightly far fetched, but I honestly have a blush in my makeup kit called “Orgasm”. So, this isn’t too far off base. Have you ever written a paragraph that is 99% regrettable. Because, this one.  […]

Watermelon & Lime Tequila Popsicles

Well, it’s that time of year again. The sun is high in the sky and the internet is churning out popsicles with the pointed enthusiasm of a confetti cannon. That’s a thing, right? A cannon that shoots out massive quantities of confetti? If it’s not, we’re just going to pretend that it is. There’s even a emoji for that. You know that party hat with the confetti coming out of it? That’s emoji for confetti cannon. And, since there’s no popsicle emoji (don’t even get me started), we could simply articulate this whole situation with like seven confetti hats, a blazing hot sun, and a Spanish dancer. Oh, and like five watermelons and three fruity cocktail drinks to represent the tequila in these. I’m glad that we’ve agreed on our emoji game. It makes me feel more secure.  […]
