Peppermint Crunch Brownies

By Katrina Yoneda - December 20, 2017

These brownies are like legit MAGIC. The first time I baked them I took them out of the oven all ooey gooey status... let them set up a reasonable amount of time... & when I went back to check them, they felt hard as a rock :O Whaaaat theeee?! Instead of throwing it away I said to myself, “F it, I’m going to cut into them & see what they look like on the inside anyways”. Boy am I glad I did. My knife GLIIIDED through a deliciously thin crunchy layer, & then you are left with the chewiest richest brownie & bursts of minty peppermint!!

Crispy Salmon Nuggets

By Katrina Yoneda - December 12, 2017

How much more amazing do these sound than chicken nuggets?!?! I guess I could be biased since I haven’t eaten meat since 2011 *shrugs*… either way these are off the charts DELIGHTFUL AF!! My toddler DEVOURS these when I make them. I wish there was a stronger word for devour, because that’s what he does to these. Let’s just say he annihilates these salmon nugs. He does NOT however, devour the celery pictured with them. He loathes celery, & if I’m being honest… I do too; it’s too damn stringy. Daddy gets our celery <3 <3

the UGLY truth about TODDLERS

By Katrina Yoneda - December 05, 2017

Drunk people & toddlers are the two types of people that say it like it is. AMIRIGHT?! Well I witnessed the ugly truth today, REAL BAD. Caleb & I went out to take our daily trip to Target (don’t act like you’re not addicted either!). We are making our way to the escalators & we are roughly 30 feet away from them when the “IT” happens (as I like to call it). The “IT” being another person eyeballing the very same escalator as you but coming from the opposing direction. You start to quickly analyze their speed & your speed.

Creamy Sriracha Sushi Bowl

By Katrina Yoneda - December 03, 2017

This sushi inspired bowl is coming in HOT!!! Literally—it has a few items that are temperature hot ;) It’s like sushi inspired, but kicked up a notch because WHEN do you see kale & broccoli in your sushi?! I sure haven’t (thank heavens)!! Hence this being a sushi “inspired” bowl.

This disinfectant spray is 100% AWESOME & disinfecting with the added bonus of NO VINEGAR STANK in your home!!! YOU KNOW WHAT SHASTY SMELL I’M TALKING ABOUT, don’t even lie Janice! I spray this before people come over to make my counters appear shiny (& clean of course), & hands down every single time I get asked what smells so good. Spoiler: IT’S THIS SPRAY!

Garlic Smashed Sweet Potatoes w/ Crunchy Sprinkles

By Katrina Yoneda - November 20, 2017

My husband LOATHES sweet potatoes; he hates the fact that sweet is with mixed with savory flavors. Why he doesn’t love marshmallows, butter & cinnamon on them is BEYOND ME. Quite frankly we don’t discuss it in our home or he’s sleeping on the couch that night. IT’S JUST NOT RIGHT ;)

Suffice to say, I’ve tried 100 different recipes in hopes we wouldn’t hate one of them.
Not only that; I made a recipe where he actually went back for SECONDS. NAAAAILED IT!!

Jalapeno Honey Cornbread

By Katrina Yoneda - November 15, 2017

I have a VERY love hate relationship with this recipe right now. Let me preface this post by saying this is a definite NAILED IT recipe & you’re totally missing out if you don’t make this! Your loss 100%!! This cornbread is the fucking talk of the town whenever it makes its appearance! NON GF & GF eaters alike have begged me for this recipe. Why? It’s easy, you don’t need a mixer, it’s moist as hell & subtly sweet with a hint of jalapeno.

Triple Threat Chocolate Cheesecake

By Katrina Yoneda - November 13, 2017

This dessert recipe seriously gets me more than my husband does! I love chocolate. I love toasted marshmallows. I love Oreos. I love cheesecake. I love different textures—this dessert is satisfying in more ways than one guys. Uhmmm it’s kind of time consuming (why would I lie to you?). But if you’re feeling adventurous & think you need to live a little; make the damn recipe. I promise you full fulfillment. Unless you hate chocolate, then GTFOH. Like why did you even click on this page if you hate chocolate?! I can’t even imagine a world with a chocolate river?!?!?!

Caramelized Onion & Carrot Soup | Vegan

By Katrina Yoneda - November 02, 2017

I have been making this deliciously creamy fall soup for the past three years now starting in November!! It’s THAT tasty that I keep going back to it. It also just screams H E L L O  F A L L !! I made this soup for a Friendsgiving one year & had three people ask me for the recipe! It’s not my own but this recipe sure is a NAILED IT! It’s easy, gluten-free AND Vegan! I added the roasted chickpeas on top to give it a bit of crunch & texture, but that’s really all I did differently (& it’s totally optional).

Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies | GF

By Katrina Yoneda - October 28, 2017

Guys… I tried & tweaked this recipe FOUR MF’ing times before getting it absolutely perfect!!! You can even be allowed to eat gluten & STILL love the shit out of these bad boys. They're not "great for gluten-free"... they're just GREAT <3
