Sweet Miso Yams

Do you ever find yourself eating or drinking something only to realize that 1. you don’t like it and 2. you are feeling compelled to finish it simply because you made it? That was me 5 seconds ago. It’s the afternoon and I poured myself some iced coffee. Mind you, I try not to drink…

Fig Brownie Bites

This probably goes without saying, but it’s incredibly difficult to do anything with a newborn in the house. I was also incredibly naive to think that I could get anything done while he is sleeping. Why? Because I can only do things that don’t make NOISE. Cooking… makes noise. Baking… makes noise. Sweeping up the back yard……

Cashew Butter Brownies

I’ve had a rough couple of weeks in the “health” department. I was nursing a sore throat, hoping to rest it off and avoid a full-blown cold. Did it work? Well… for a weekend. Then I started the following week with eyes watering, nose running, and sneezing shenanigans. Not cool. After I mostly recovered, my…

Olive Oil Lemon Muffins

I don’t bake with Olive Oil too often, but this recipe was just begging for it! Despite the use of coconut flour which can make baked goods pretty dense and oftentimes dry, these muffins come out luscious and moist due to the addition of the olive oil. They are also incredibly nourishing due to their…

Apple Bacon Chicken Salad

  Here’s a little tidbit most people do not know about me: I’m not a big fan of leftover chicken. I much prefer eating it freshly cooked right off the grill or straight out of the oven with salty crispy skin and juicy meat. Leftover chicken is just… meh. It’s boring, tough, and difficult to restore…

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…

Sesame Honey Dip

Happy Spring! Here’s a delicious no-bake recipe for a fresh raw veggie dip or sauce. This was an “on-the-fly” creation. I needed a tasty sauce for some coconut shrimp and the inspiration just hit me! Lucky for me, I had all the necessary ingredients right in my fridge. This is super easy to make and…

Links I Love 7.0

Another edition of my favorite links. Time to surf the web… I’m leading this off with a favorite new PRODUCT. NoOodle – Calorie Free Noodles that have an AWESOME texture. I’m actually more impressed with the pasta-like texture than I am with all the “-Free” attributes. Go buy some! Nutritionist Erica Sawers shares a sensible approach to…

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of my new products for sale at the local natural foods market is a coconut flour-based paleo cookie. In the past week I’ve introduced two different seasonal flavors, Gingerbread and Peppermint Hot Cocoa. Here’s a little sneak peek at the next flavor. I figure you can never go wrong with a classic. Me thinks…
