GF Vegan PB&J Breakfast Bars | Naked Nutrition
Lemons and Basil
by Kaylee Pauley
8M ago
These GF Vegan PB&J Breakfast bars are a new favorite! The blueberry filling is beautifully sandwiched between the sweetened oat flour crust and crumble, making them perfect for breakfast, a mid-day snack, or after-meal dessert! School is OUT! And honestly, I’m not mad about it. Working from home will be a bit more of a challenge with both kiddos home full-time, but it’s not lost on me that these years while they’re young are fleeting. Already the thought of Brighton turning 7 in August has me feeling all sorts of mixed emotions. And with Addie nearly 5, they’ve hit an age where they shar ..read more

Ruby Gold Winter Citrus and Spice Smoothie

This Ruby Gold Winter Citrus and Spice Smoothie packs a punch in color, flavor and best of all immune-boosting nutrition! The perfect drink to keep you healthy this Winter!  And I don’t know about you, but I need all the Immune-boosting I can get! The last few months have held a lot of sickness for me. It started with Covid in October. My son and I both had it and while I’m so grateful it was a mild case for me and my son was asymptomatic, it seems to have taken a tole on my immune system. Since that time I’ve caught a small stomach bug from my daughter, and two colds. And I think it boi ..read more

These GF Peanut Butter Vanilla Pretzel Butterflies are a fun after-school snack that’s super easy to make and your kiddos will love! I promised I’d be back with a recipe soon and this is such a fun one! This summer has literally flown by. Between the construction on the house from the flood, traveling for Josh’s dad’s celebration of life, and then to Virginia Beach for his niece’s wedding, the days and weeks have seemed to simply disappear. I honestly can’t believe it’s almost time for school to start back! Up until now, we’ve only had preschoolers, which starts back a little later in the yea ..read more

Life Changing Events – Part Two (The Aftermath)

[Disclaimer: These posts are honestly a recount for our family as much as they are to share with others a little of our personal life. While there’s not a recipe in this post, I promise I’ll be back to sharing those soon!] In my last post, I shared about “The Storm“. The storm referring to the sudden loss of Josh’s dad as well as the actual storm(s) that caused flash flooding to impact many on our street, ourselves included, and in the surrounding area. SUNDAY: To continue where I left off, it was the morning after the flood. The friends we stayed with were so gracious and let us leave the ki ..read more

Life Changing Events – Part One (The Storm)

S.I.X. Months. It’s hard to believe it’s been SIX months since I last sat behind this screen and shared not only a recipe, but a bit of our lives with you. 2020 was a hard year, but also a year full of growth. And while we faced some challenges in 2020, we had no idea what was to come in 2021. January and the first half of February were fairly “normal”. Whatever normal is these days. Up until Valentines Day. We went to church that morning then spent the day leisurely at home. The kids eating mini cupcakes and coloring on Mess Free market sets gifted to them by our dear neighbors. At some ..read more

Green Smoothie Bowl with Oats and Berries | Vegan
Lemons and Basil
by Kaylee Pauley
2y ago
This Green Smoothie Bowl with Oats and Berries has become my daily breakfast. It’s completely plant-based and full of nutrition, yet hearty and delicious! I’m one of those people who finds something I like for breakfast and then just puts it on repeat, day after day. That is until I find something else I like more, ha! This smoothie bowl is where it’s at for me right now. Smoothies have been a part of my rhythm for a long time. But what I like about a smoothie bowl is the addition of texture and toppings, giving me something to chew and not just drink. Smoothies are such an easy way to add fr ..read more

GF Baked Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

2y ago
This GF Baked Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese is a healthier spin on the more traditional dish. It’s rich and cheesy and full of so much savory goodness – perfect for Thanksgiving! I love the traditions that come with the holidays. The special gatherings with family and friends year after year. The chance to annually do the same customs, reflecting on the past while embracing the present. These moments aren’t always perfect, nor Instagram worthy, but there’s something comforting about familiarity. Something sweet about creating these same memories year after year with our kiddos. Many of the ..read more

Chickpea Flour Apple Butter Snickerdoodle Bars
Lemons and Basil
by Kaylee Pauley

These Chickpea Flour Apple Butter Snickerdoodle Bars are incredibly moist with a rich caramel apple flavor. They’re also dairy-free (thank you coconut oil) and naturally gluten-free thanks to the chickpea flour. And did I mention, super yummy?! I’ve made these Apple Butter Snickerdoodle Bars from Cookies and Cups numerous times. And every time, they’re a huge hit with friends and family. Having experimented with chickpea flour in baked goods a handful of times, I was intrigued to see if it’d work well in making a gluten-free version of these delicious bars. Amazingly, it did, and it was so ea ..read more

Silly Caramel Apple Faces | Fun for Halloween!

These Silly Caramel Apple Faces are not only incredibly delicious but they’ll have your little ones squealing with delight! Perfect for a fun Halloween treat! I’ll be honest, while I love the Fall, Halloween has never been my favorite holiday. I can get into the fun costumes and thoroughly enjoy walking our neighborhood with close friends and our kiddos. But I don’t do much in the way of decorating around the house. And I definitely don’t get into the whole scary/gory stuff. No judgement for those who relish that part, it’s just not my thing. But, with a three and five year old, I definitely ..read more

Strawberry Burrata Bruschetta with Balsamic Reduction
Lemons and Basil
by Kaylee Pauley
2y ago
This Strawberry Burrata Bruschetta with Balsamic Reduction is a sweeter take on the more traditional savory bruschetta. It’s bursting with flavors and textures that complement one another beautifully and will have you coming back for more (and more)! Bruschetta is one of those appetizers that I rarely think to make… but can’t stop eating once I do. I love the pairing of the french baguette, coated in a light layer of olive oil and toasted to a beautiful golden brown. Then smothered in cheese (at least in many cases) and topped with chopped veggies, fruit, and herbs. SO.GOOD. It’s somehow fres ..read more
