Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

A while ago, a friend and I were at Starbucks and she ordered a chocolate muffin. Now, I admit that I’ve sampled a lot of baked goods that Starbucks has to offer, but their chocolate muffins – never! I was intrigued and it looked good, but I resisted ordering it.

But it got me thinking that I need to come up with a good recipe for homemade chocolate muffins… (more…)

Loaded Kit Kat Peanut Butter Brownies

While I was back home last holiday season and Mike was here in Kuwait, he took the opportunity to load up on a few choice junk food items that usually don’t make their way into our cart when he and I shop together.

I came back to a kitchen fully stocked with chips, soda, and candy bars by the case. (Oh my God, it was a nightmare. I can’t imagine what he was thinking.) (more…)

Deluxe Cake Batter Fudge

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little hard-pressed to find a dessert that’s suitable for Easter outside of carrot cake, lemon bars, or orange chiffon cake. And of course all the cutesy little bunny and egg-topped cupcakes and cookies.

There’s nothing wrong with any of those things (in fact, I die over a good slice of carrot cake!), but I don’t know…I like to mix things up a little.

If you’re the same way, this fudge will definitely keep things interesting. (more…)

5-Minute Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake {Paleo}

5-Minute Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake {Paleo}

Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.)

Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard.

Such a bummer. (more…)

2-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Fondue

I know it’s last-minute, but I got you a Valentine’s Day gift.

(You knew I wouldn’t forget about you, right?)

I think you’ll forgive me for being fashionably late when you find out what it is. (more…)

Chocolate-Covered Sponge Candy

Homemade Chocolate-Covered Sponge Candy

We don’t talk candy much around here (other than things like Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Superfood Spiced Autumn Truffles, and Paleo Candy Apple Wedges), which is probably for the best.

The mere mention of things like homemade Snickers Bars (which I have wanted to make for forever now!), Peppermint Patties, and Buckeyes is enough to make me want to throw all caution – along with anything remotely healthy – to the wind.

Thoughts like Who need healthy when Christmas is less than a week away? start to run through my head, and before I know what’s happening, I’m making batch after batch of sponge candy. And I realized, I could not hoard a recipe as good as this all for myself…especially since I have seen this candy being sold for upwards of $20/lb! (more…)

Mike and I have a friend here in Kuwait who doesn’t like to eat.

I know what you’re thinking. Wait…what?! Explain please, because I just don’t understand.

Yup, it’s true, he doesn’t like to eat, toddler-style. As in, I guess I’ll eat if I have to, but only when I really feel like it, and good luck getting me to try anything new.

Sigh. The challenges I have to face, lol. (more…)

Cranberry Chocolate Almond Thumbprint Cookies

Things are about to get cookie crazy around here.

Ok, not really, but they should. And in a perfect world (read: where calories don’t at all for the entire months of November and December), cookie crazy would be my life right now. (more…)

Chewy Chocolate, Coconut, and Pecan Granola Bars {No-Bake; Vegan; Gluten-Free}

After eating these granola bars, not only will you never want to buy store-bought granola bars ever again, but you will also never want to make another recipe for chewy granola bars again. I know that’s a mighty tall claim, but I’m standing by it. These bars are that good. (more…)

Cinnamon + Orange-Spiced Chocolate Zucchini Cake

When I was dreaming up this cake I had a decadent chocolate cake in mind.

Something really indulgent…sinful, even.

Then I looked in my fridge and found three pretty zucchinis that needed to be used up (even despite making a few zucchini recipes lately, like Roasted Vegetable Crustless Quiche with Basil & Pine Nuts and Cinnamon + Nutmeg Zucchini “Applesauce”).

Seeing the zucchini I got an idea and I knew sinful would have to wait. (more…)
