Italian Spaghetti Squash and White Bean Casserole

This time of the year, when there is a chill in the air, warming comfort food is essential!  I especially love dishes using squash, which is one of my favorites!  This dish uses spaghetti squash to make a hearty and healthy meal!  The sauce is flavorful, and I use the squash in place of where spaghetti would be in a spaghetti casserole.  This is just the thing to make on a cool night!  It reheats wonderfully too, so if you have leftovers you can enjoy it tomorrow!

We are in the middle of pear season, so it is the perfect time to use up those ripe pears in baked goods!  These scones are simple, but so good and ready in under an hour.  They happen to be vegan as well, since they are made with coconut instead of butter, milk and eggs.  They make the perfect weekend morning treat and a great addition to a brunch spread, or to enjoy with some tea or coffee!

Spicy Chickpea Salad

You can turn canned chickpeas into a delicious meal with this easy to make salad!  I combine them with a bit of jalapenos, cumin, lime juice and cilantro to give it plenty of flavor, and some bell peppers for color and it is so good and so easy to make.  This is perfect for summer!  Serve it over romaine lettuce for more of a main dish meal, or as is for a side.

Vegan Cherry Almond Ice Cream

Tis the season for ice cream!  One of my favorite things to make in the summer, is home made ice cream!  It is fun to create new and interesting flavors, and I can make a much heathier version than store bought.  This ice cream is vegan, because it contains a coconut milk base.  I combine it with almond butter and fresh cherries plus a little vanilla and the result is a creamy, delicious sweet cherry ice cream!  If you don’t have an ice cream maker, I have included directions for making it without one.
