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…)

Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate-Espresso Cookies

Monday, December 16th, 2013


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}

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013


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

Friday, August 23rd, 2013


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…)

Chocolate-Covered Toasted Coconut Pops {Popsicle Week}

Thursday, August 15th, 2013


Most people I know use umbrellas in downpours.

Not me.

I always say I won’t melt and shrug off the fact that I will inevitably look half-drowned after choosing not to use an umbrella; but the truth is I really can’t be bothered with the trouble (which of course is really no trouble at all) of using one (although there’s a quite large pretty black umbrella in my car at all times). I must be some kind of umbrella-phobe. Weird, right?

Now heat is another story. Coupled with high humidity, when temps over 85 hit me I actually do melt. (more…)

Peanut Butter Swirl Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but did you realize that summer is more than half over?

That happened fast.

Did you have a summer bucket list of things you wanted to get done?

I’ve been slowly crossing little things off of mine. (more…)
