Clean Almond Joy Bars

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for a hump day/afternoon sugar boost! Seriously, munch on one of these and try not to jet out the door and run around the block 5 times. It’s amazing how sensitive our bodies can become to sugar when we limit our consumption of the sweet stuff. Even during my pregnancy,…

Fudge Drizzle Cookies

Do you guys remember those Keebler Elves commercials with the tree cookie factory that made the ‘fudge stripe’ cookies and the Rainbow ones with the REAL M&M’s in them?! Man, that’s a throwback to my childhood tv days for sure. The only thing I liked more than TV was probably those cookies. The double stuffed…

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Sometimes I get requests for recipes that I wouldn’t typically make for myself. Chia pudding is one of those things. I realize that chia is widely considered a “superfood” and hailed as an excellent source of healthy fats and energy. BUT… If you know anything about my nutritional journey, you know that I have some digestive issues….

Ganache-Filled Flourless Blondies

I have a ton of new recipes to share with you all. We should start, like most things in life, with chocolate. This is my offering to all the women out there who are on (or will be on) their moon cycle. It’s also my gift to all the men who have to deal with…

Links I Love

This one is a recipe edition because I made an epic amount of dishes today and none of them were my own (though I did make some adjustments… see below!) I love getting inspired by what other bloggers are doing and sharing the delicious love. Enjoy! Pomegranate Pork Belly from The Paleo Chef, Mary Shenouda…

Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bars

This is the result of complete recipe improvisation. I was scanning an old bread recipe and didn’t have the necessary ingredients on hand, so I swapped here, added there. The result was pretty incredible. I’m so glad that it was for a client because my husband and I were ready to consume the entire pan….

Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies and Flowers. Is there any greater combination in this world? No. There isn’t. Another great combination is walnuts and chocolate, just ask a brownie. There are a ton of nut butter cookie recipes out there and to my dismay, there weren’t any using walnut butter. So I decided to try one out myself. These are…

Blueberry Banana Bread Pudding

Here’s a fantastic idea for your post-holiday weekend brunch! (New Year’s Resolutions notwithstanding… more on that later.)   I made these for my romantic and relaxing Christmas morning with my husband. I wanted to use some blueberry scones that I over baked (whoopsie!) along with some new Le Creuset mini crocks that I scored at a garage…

Triple Chocolate Raspberry Torte

Today’s recipe is another edition of “Things I Make For My Dad”. Today is my Dad’s birthday (Happy Birthday Dad!) and we celebrated over the past weekend. So naturally, I provided his very own chocolate bomb dessert. You may remember a past “Dad Dessert” called the Triple Chocolate Orange Torte. This is a berry version of…

Raw Chocolate-Covered Caramels

Made these last weekend. They were a MAJOR hit with all the eaters. I was looking around for a raw chocolatey dessert since I was at home (no oven) and fortunately stumbled across this recipe on Mind Body Green! They are exceptionally easy and incredibly yummy. I wanted the chocolate coating to act more like…
