I am a die-hard chocoholic. No shame in my game. No desire to hide it, either. I just reinvent my favorite chocolatey desserts to make them healthier, and more chocolatey. Both of which are possible, let me explain. I strip them of white sugar, white flour and butter or other forms of dairy. But- I… Continue reading Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes
Life without peanut butter (or any nut butter, for that matter) would be incredibly dull + boring, don’t ya think? There once was a girl (not naming names) that was seriously addicted to a certain peanut butter recipe (that was conveniently written) on the back of a certain peanut butter jar. By the way, sorry… Continue reading Flourless Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Everyone tells me… Continue reading Maple & Tamari Roasted Pork Chops & Veggies

So very thankful to the friends who make this blog possible; because through their help, they enable… Continue reading Gluten Free Raspberry Clafoutis
I was the grinch of Valentine’s Day. Truth. I absolutely recoiled in the festivities surrounding this date. It wasn’t about the sentiment or meaningfulness of cupid’s holiday or anything along those lines. It was just the cheesy, completely over-the-top decor & frilly heart garlands hanging everywhere. From the packed, noisy restaurants dimly lit in an attempt to create a… Continue reading Say it with Chocolate! Healthy Chocolate Hazelnut Tartelettes
