Fudgy Peppermint Brownies

I can’t even believe that the holiday season is upon us. I realize that Halloween should have been a pretty solid warning but Thanksgiving is less than a week away. I feel completely unprepared. Good thing I’m not hosting The Big Meal cause I would be all kinds of stressed out if that were the…

Mocha Spice Brownies

I”m thinking everyone is probably a bit “over-sugared” right now from the candy-centric holiday this week. There has to be someone out there with a sweet tooth that no amount of holiday goodies can tame. Or maybe you’re the person who needs an alternative sweet to help avoid the mountains of leftover Halloween candy. If…

Cakey Paleo Brownies

This post can also be referred to as Valentine’s Dessert Part Deux. As promised, here is the chocolate-y other half of the Valentine’s Day Dessert Couple of the Year. Aren’t they beautiful together? There is a lot of flexibility in this brownie recipe. For example, instead of the typical almond butter I used my own, homemade walnut…

Tahini Truffles

Apparently I’m on a truffle kick. I tried out these lil’ guys this morning because they were fast and I had all the ingredients on hand. They are yet another spin on a Practical Paleo recipe. Diane’s book had made some great recipes really easy and accessible. I am genuinely grateful for this book. Tahini…
