I love peanut butter, I mean what's not to love? But forget about just spreading it on toast I'm baking the most delicous cookies with peanut butter as the star ingredient.
These cookies are crunchy with soft centers and packs great peanut butter flavour that's pretty addictive!

I used @ilovebakingsa
isn't just about delicious sundaes, it's also perfect for weekend brunch with girlfriends. Had an absolutely scrumptious meal with @carinaeletoile
over the weekend at Fenton's Vacaville location. Can you believe we still had room for dessert? How can you not have dessert at Fenton's, right? It took a few hours of walking (and shopping)to burn off the calories. How was your holiday weekend?
Nothing beats a cheese and vino platter.

VEGAN RECIPE CHALLENGE!
Comment below with what kind of recipes you wanna see on this page. I will professionally photograph and post the recipes for you. (If you’re new here, that’s what I do! I am a food photographer based in Seattle who loves to cook vegan food. 🙃)
Now.. onto something new. :) I know most of you are playing the Instagram game. I did it for so long. But I’d really appreciate it if you didn’t spam my photos.. or overlook this post.
I’ve been avoiding my vegan Instagram for a long time now. For those of you who don’t know, I had gone through multiple eye surgeries. I lost my passion for cooking and photography in general. My last post was a really long time ago! I need to make a post right now to get back into it, and promise myself I won’t give up on my passions.
This is an extremely vulnerable moment for me. But I miss the vegan community more than ever.
Please show me some love and what recipes you’d like to see next!! Help me get that motivation back! 🖤🖤

caribbean stewed zucchini with shrimp | I was seriously craving some west indian food this morning, and since I’ve been eating clean, I didn’t want to make fried bake (which is usually our weekend tradition). we don’t get our type of squash around here so I had to substitute zucchini in @alicaspepperpot
’s stewed squash recipe! brought me right back to my childhood! my grandma always used to make this for us on vegetarian days, minus the shrimp! so good! 🏠💕
cheesy pesto pull-apart bread 🍃🥖 | ooey gooey cheesiness in every bite. this bread is sooo addictive! sharing the recipe below. P.S. I didn’t get a picture after it was baked, because we literally inhaled it. recipe below! ⬇️
1 loaf artisan bread
1/4 cup melted butter
1 basil pesto
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese or italian cheese blend
1. preheat oven to 375°F.
2. make diagonal cuts through the bread, leaving the bottom crust intact. turn the bread and make diagonal cuts in the opposite direction, creating a crosshatch pattern.
3. pour the melted butter into the cuts of the bread. use a spoon to drip the pesto into the cuts of the bread and stuff the shredded cheese into the cuts of the bread.
4. wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.
5. open the foil to expose the top of the bread and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
6. remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
mussels in an arrabbiata wine sauce 🌹🥂🥖 | paired perfectly with my pesto pull-apart bread. seems so fancy, but so easy to make! it’s the perfect appetizer to impress a special someone. shared the recipe in my insta stories yesterday! #bonappetit
❤️-shaped pasta in a homemade asiago & parmesan cream sauce with pancetta | this was such a simple dinner to make! shared the recipe in my insta stories!
GALentines sangria 🍓💃♥️ | I love experimenting with alcohol while I’m cooking in the kitchen (don’t judge me) 😂 today I came up with this perfect little drink which is perfect for our #galentines
night tomorrow💘 P.S. I may or may not be dancing around the kitchen like that emoji after my first glass) P.P.S. I found the cute little stir sticks at #target
in the dollar section!
1 oz tequila (which I definitely free-handed)
4 oz pink moscato
top off with cranberry gingerale
chocolate covered strawberries 🍓💖 | someone couldn’t wait to dig in! I don’t blame him, these were so juicy & sweet! I’m definitely treating myself today! they’re mostly fruit though, so still #lowcarb
right? haha. at least I didn’t bake!
parsley garlic butter steak, scalloped potatoes & asparagus 💘🥩| nothing says “I love you” more than a home-cooked meal! do you agree? my steak recipe is pretty basic, but always comes out just right. will share my scalloped potatoes recipe in my stories later! .
for the steak, I season simply with salt and pepper and let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. grill on each side for 4 minutes, and then bake in the oven for 8 minutes at 450 degrees F. this always gives me the perfect well-done steak! I then top it off with my parsley garlic butter:
melt 2 tbsp butter over low heat and add garlic and parsley, swirling the pan frequently, until garlic is lightly golden. drizzle over cooked steak. #bonappetit
you’re the peanut butter to my jelly, you’re the bacon to my eggs, you’re the love of my life ❤️🥜🍓🥓🍳 | showing my little man some valentine’s day spirit with breakfast!
tandoori chicken, jasmine rice with cumin seeds & mixed vegetables and a cucumber & tomato raita 🍗🥒🍅 | such an easy meal for a lazy day! if you’re trying to be #lowcarb
just skip the rice! I always use @shanfoods #tandoorichicken
seasoning! after baking, we like to char it a little on the grill. the cool cucumber raita compliments the spicy chicken perfectly! #bonappetit
chicken stuffed peppers 🌶🥑 | so remember those delicious chicken empanadas I posted in my stories the other day? this was my low-carb version! I used the tasty chicken from the empanadas I made the boys, stuffed it into sweet peppers, topped it with a little cheese and popped it in the oven! topped them off with some homemade guacamole and mmm mmm good. best part was my toddler enjoyed this too (with some brown rice). I just kind of made this up as I was going but I tried my best to post the recipe below ⬇️:
2 chicken breasts
1 packet of sazon seasoning
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 tbsp adobo ( I use all @goyafoods
products, as you can tell I’m a huge fan)
3 bell peppers
1/2 can goya tomato sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
1. steam chicken breast and shred (if you had leftover rotisserie chicken it would be perfect for this!)
2. pan fry in olive oil with all dry ingredients. I left it long enough to get a little crisp. then add tomato sauce and leave to simmer for at least 5 minutes.
3. while the chicken is simmering, slice and remove seeds/membranes from bell peppers and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
4. stuff peppers with shredded chicken and bake for 20 minutes. * optional to top with cheese or guac
oil roti | I’ve perfected many things in life. roti isn’t one of them... haha. I’m always trying new techniques to get my roti “softer” than it was before. seriously, who knew that was even a thing? did I really just say that? I’m definitely getting old. anyways, I recently tried adding some #crisco
(vegetable shortening) which @alicaspepperpot
mentions as a tip she likes to use. three days later and it’s still as soft as the first day! great tip! - and now that wraps up my old lady “soft” roti speech 👵🏽
corned beef and roti | it’s a must have in every west indian kitchen for a “lazy” day (or corned mutton). definitely one of my favourite comfort foods. also love how diverse this dish is. you could have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner and it hits the spot all the same!
homemade barfi 🇫🇯🇹🇹 | just a weird craving I’ve been having. I literally made an entire tray just to have one bite, and I’ll just be sharing out the rest of it! sooo I kinda/sorta used self-control - yay me 💁♀️ *FULL DISCLOSURE: this recipe was taken from @trinigourmet

buffalo chicken dip & celery sticks 🔥| any leftover dips from the super bowl that you feel guilty eating because you want to start the week off right? turn it into a healthier snack! rather than eating this tasty dip with tostitos today, I chose to go with celery sticks! just as delicious! 😋 I would totally do this with @nadera1984

1 cup hot sauce (I always use frank’s)
1 cup cheddar
1 pack of cream cheese
1. throw all ingredients into a crockpot. leave on low for at least an hour (until all ingredients melt together)

bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers 🥓🏈| these are such a great hit for any party! loaded with flavour in every bite and so effortless to make. prepped these ahead of time for my friend’s super bowl party. can’t wait to pop them in the oven!
