Not Tuna Salad | Recipe

I am absolutely thrilled to be featured in the latest issue of Untouchd, an online lifestyle magazine with an appreciation for tech! I’ve recently become friends with its creator, Holy, who is such a sweetheart. I’m totally enamored by her dedication and work ethic, and am honored to be included in her vision.

I was asked to share two of my favorite recipes and immediately knew which ones those would be, my: Spicy Green Smoothie, and Not Tuna Salad Sandwich! Above you’ll see that I’ve complimented one of them with a video, however, you’ll have to hop on over to her latest issue for the recipes (and for the rest of Untouchd’s amazing content!)

I hope you like them as much as I do. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies | Recipe

Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies | Recipe

I literally came across photos of these cookies less than 2 hours ago and immediately decided to whip up a batch. I made some minor tweaks to suit my taste, however the base of this recipe comes from Sweet Potato Soul’s 5-ingredient Chocolate Tahini Cookies, (love her!). My version has more than 5 ingredients, but it’s still a quick, easy, one-bowl minimal mess type of recipe that turned out to be dangerously delicious. Enjoy!
