Tortilla Soup

This is one of my go-to recipes, especially when it's cold out. There's nothing quite like homemade tortillas chips. And they're easy to make too! Aside from the chips, my favorite part of this soup the melted cheese. My trick (actually it's something my mom always did when I was a child) is placing cubes of jack cheese in the serving bowls, then pouring the soup over and letting the cheese melt. 

Chocolate Coconut Date Energy Balls

These vegan energy balls are the perfect snack when craving something sweet. They're so easy you can whip them up in a matter of minutes. Dates, cashews and chocolate chips are blended together to form soft and chewy balls, which are then dipped in chocolate and rolled in coconut flakes.
