Homemade Almond Milk

Rating: 4.92 stars
Almond milk is a delicious and healthier alternative to soy and cow milk. It's easy to make and very delicious. The longer you soak the almonds, the creamier the milk turns out.

Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad

Rating: 4.55 stars
I had this at a party and couldn't get it off my mind. It's a fruity Asian chicken salad that even my family's picky eaters enjoy. I bake my own chicken for more flavor, which adds to the prep time, but pre-cooked or canned chicken will also work just fine.

Homemade Flax Seed Milk

Rating: 5 stars
DIY flax seed milk can not only save money but also keep you from using the store-bought kind with chemicals and additives. Adjusting the amount of water used can also produce a thicker outcome giving you a creamier texture to use in place of cream in recipes.

Chef John's Chocolate Energy Bars

Rating: 4.78 stars
If you compare these chocolate energy bars to similar fruit/nut bars sold at the store, I think they taste better, are nutritionally superior, and probably cheaper to make at home. The only problem is they look so good it takes your brain a millisecond to process that they're not going to taste like the fudge brownies they resemble.

Seminary Muffins

Rating: 4.57 stars
Delicious and healthy muffins. Great for breakfast or a snack. No oil, butter or yeast! You may use oat bran instead of oatmeal if you wish.
