Lucky me! I was strolling along the main drag here in San Clemente, and I stumbled upon a little mom-pop cooking store that had some nifty items on sale. To my delight, I saw a little box of silicone baking cups. I kid you not, I’ve been desiring a set of these for over a year. Why did wait so long? I don’t know. I guess when it comes to making purchases, I tend to take a more serendipitous approach. I like being patient for the whole “right place, right time” scenario.This logic falls apart when I want books. Let’s just say Amazon is best friends with my “impulsive side”.

So yeah, baking cups! They come in fun colors and wonderfully bendy which makes it easy to make delicious items and peel off the cup without ruining said item.

Aren’t they pretty?!

I haven’t actually baked in them yet because I have no oven. Which means I’ve been making rad little chocolate candy things. First I poured coconut butter in and then poured melted chocolate on top for little coconut cup snacks.

Then I had a flash of genius (as if this were an even remotely original idea) and decided to make nut butter cups. Super fun and delicious!

Sunbutter Cups

12 silicone baking cups
1/2 c. sunbutter
4 oz. chocolate
1 Tbsp. palm shortening

  1. In a double boiler, melt chocolate and stir in palm shortening.
  2. Spoon a tablespoon of chocolate into the bottom of the cups. Chill/freeze until set.
  3. take a tsp of sunbutter and spoon it into the middle of the cup. Flatten the sunbutter a bit.
  4. Spoon more chocolate into the cup to cover the sunbutter. Sometimes the nut butter will stick out. If so, just take your (clean) finger and smush it down until the chocolate level. Problem fixed. Chill again till set
  5. Pop the finished product out of the liners and eat joyously!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
