Sweet Potato Blueberry Chocolate Cake (New and Improved Recipe!)

I know I've probably said this before, but there are just some recipes in which I feel some strange muse got into my body while I was sleeping and decided to take me over to the kitchen and pre-heat the oven. I start writing and choosing ingredients, I measure, whisk and bake, and what comes out is something completely unexpected. This cake is a total example of that because you would never guess from the ingredients that it could be delicious. It's practically entirely made out of fruits and vegetables, it's gluten free, vegan and it uses gluten free oats or gluten free oat flour for the base.

It also happens to be one of our most viewed videos and recipes to date! It became so popular that I decided to go back to the drawing board and make the recipe even better and easier. I’m so glad I get to share it with you today.

Making morning pizza toast and diner classics from sandwiches to salads and wraps

If you read last week's from our kitchen table post you know that our little furry baby Nala was a bit under the weather. I can't thank you enough for all your kind words and smooches sent to her! Trust me, she got them all because we wouldn't stop hugging and kissing her. Let me just say, the extra dose of love worked! She is almost completely recovered and back to her usual perky and naughty self. Thank you so much for being there cheering her on. As you can see below, she's already trying to manipulate us into giving her treats, so things are finally back to normal around here (that's her treat stare... very serious and professional).

This week we still had to do a lot of babysitting since she still needed a bit of help eating and moving around, so we were basically in our little bunker, getting all sorts of amazing content ready for you, and of course there was a lot of cooking and eating! Here are some of our favorites from this past week. I hope these inspire some of your meals. I'm especially excited for this week's sweet treat, which we just filmed and is so healthy it's CRAZY. Coming soon!

FROM OUR KITCHEN TABLE

Full time doggie nurse, recipe testing burgers, healthy chocolate cake and more!

This week was rough to say the least. Our dog Nala woke up in the middle of the night on Thursday completely disoriented, dizzy, throwing up, unable to walk, with her head tilted to one side, and as you can imagine, completely nervous because of what was happening to her. We rushed her to the vet and although we'll know more in the next few days as she continues to recover, we suspect she got something called vestibular disorder which apparently is typical in senior dogs. Imagine having problems in your inner ear that completely mess up your balance and gives you the worst case of vertigo. Poor thing. She's been so sick these past few days and my heart and stomach have been in knots! We stayed home with her every single day, kept her company, gave her all her medications and even had to spoon (and syringe) feed her since she was refusing to eat. Thank goodness everything turned around on Sunday and she woke up so much better! I'´ll keep you posted on how she's doing as she continues to recover. This is why we've been a bit absent from social media these past few days and why some of our meals and pics for this week's recap today are a little simpler than usual. My whole mind, heart and soul were completely on getting Nala better. Yet another example for me of how important being healthy is. When you're sick nothing else matters. Here's the little patient with her dad. This was the day before she really started feeling better. Please keep her in your thoughts so she can make a quick recovery.

Are your ready for our favorites from the past week? I hope these help inspire some of your meals!
