This spicy chocolate latte from Savory Simple will warm you up when it's chilly outside! This vegan latte uses almond milk, but regular milk may be substituted.

It seems like every year there’s one month where I find myself traveling to multiple work events. I’m right in the middle of that hectic time right now. I’ve been home from a visit to Seattle for just two days and in another two days I’m headed to Pennsylvania. It’s tiring but I’m enjoying catching up with old friends and acquaintances.

This garlic scape pesto avocado pasta is a healthy, vegetarian dinner the the entire family will love.

Have you ever tried cooking with garlic scapes? They’re the beautiful, tentacle-shaped flower stems of the garlic plant and they pack a strong flavor punch. I was a bit thrown off by them at first because they can be tough and fibrous. But a little experimentation was all I needed to become a fan.
