Pistachio Cranberry Cookies Recipe

I ate the last one for breakfast this morning and I could really go for another one right about now. Chewy, oaty, nutty… slightly sweet and warmly spiced… it’s the kind of cookie that’s just healthy enough to get by as breakfast but would be even more perfect as a 2pm snack.

Super Seedy Crackers Recipe

On the first day, we did my #1 favorite travel activity – visiting grocery stores in other countries. I don’t know why, but I’m so fascinated by what other people eat, how things are packaged, how stores are organized… all of it. That day, I picked up a package of crackers that ended up being my favorite snack of the week. They were thick seedy crackers – I smashed avocado on them for breakfast and slathered cheese on them as a snack later in the day. They were hearty and filling, and I felt good that I was getting a little bit of protein and fiber in every bite. Jessica’s Pistachio Oat Squares Recipe.

Easy Vegan Apple Crisp Recipe

Fall is in the air, and although it’s not exactly crisp outside here, I’ve made crisp inside to make up for it. Apple crisp is hands down my favorite fall dessert.

To make these vegan, I used coconut oil instead of butter and scooped vegan ice cream on top. Baked Rosemary Beet Chips.

Spicy Lemon Herb Popcorn - Dirty Gourmet

It was my first time there, and it was definitely not my favorite campground. The sites were way too close together, and even though they charge $45 per night(!) There wasn’t toilet paper in the bathrooms (that might sound like a silly complaint for camping, but we were excited about glamping). Our neighbors partied hard late into the night, and the winds were so strong we couldn’t have a fire. Hazelnut Raisin Crisps - Dirty Gourmet.
