A few years ago, our pastor told this story about the Pixar creator, Ed Catmull, being 2 inches from dying in a car accident as a child. Had that had happened, there would be no Pixar. The people that met through Pixar would’ve never met, […]

20 Minute No Bake Fudge (Paleo and Vegan Options)
Easy, delicious fudge for those quick holiday gatherings! Vegan option.
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 Tbsp Vital Proteins (optional- omit if vegan)
- 1/4 Cup Nut butter of choice

Add nut butter and vital proteins to the food processor, combine until smooth.
Add melted oil, syrup, salt to mixture.
Blend again and then scrape into a prepared dish.
Place in a 6x6 parchment paper lined baking dish. I put mine in a square Tupperware container and it popped right out when it was ready.

I remember when I was little my mom would make “Fancy dinners”. We’d often find some sort of layered dessert in the fridge for later. Hers were often pudding cups or jello treats, but we loved them and I always thought they were so cool.
This dessert was a total accident but I’m obsessed! Who wouldn’t want to treat their guests or family with a cool layered pumpkin treat?
These treats are Vegan and Paleo, Dairy Free, Egg Free and Refined Sugar Free.

Using a cold can of Coconut milk (Place in the fridge 24 hours prior), take 1/2 c. of the thick cream off the top of the can and place it in a bowl.
add syrup and cinnamon and mix well
Place cream in the freezer until the pumpkin layer in slightly cooled
Layered Parfait Instructions
Grab your favorite dessert shooter glasses or mason jars and begin layering the desserts.
Pumpkin, crunchy, cream and so on until the glass of choice is filled. Store in the fridge until ready to serve or serve immediately if you want the warm pumpkin layer! (my personal fav!)
If you don't want to layer, make the pumpkin layer, pour into the baking dish and top with the crunchy layer. Bake and then let cool. Top with the cream (optional) and serve in the dish! This was a hit at a party I recently went to and I didn't even use the cream layer.

I love all things Fall
Obviously, my favorite fall activity is picking fall fruits and baking. I throw on my over sized sweaters, prop my doors open and light spiced candles while playing in the kitchen with my kids.
As a tribute to fall and all things spiced and delicious, I wanted to share my favorite Fall recipes with you.
