The Ultimate Granola Cookies

We all know not to judge a book by its cover.

I think that same adage should wholeheartedly be applied to food. (more…)

Vanilla-Scented Toasted Coconut-Cashew Mix

Some things drive you completely wild with desire as they cook.

Roast chicken.

Apple pie.

Any recipe that starts out with sautéed onion and garlic.

Chocolate chip cookies.

And I can say with confidence that this recipe should be added to the list. (more…)

Coconut-Sesame Rice

Would you believe I absolutely hated rice as a kid?

I attribute this to the fact that my mom served what she called “Mushroom and Wine Rice” to my sister and I the first time we remember ever having rice. Although I think it sounds delicious now, this is not something your average five-year-old will generally devour; needless to say, I grew up thinking I hated rice. (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…)

Pina Colada Smoothie {Frozen Treat Week}

Pina Colada Smoothie1

The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy.

In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious.

I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream. (more…)

Coconut Tiger Prawn Curry

So, who in the food world (home cooks included) doesn’t miss Gourmet, right? Luckily we still have their old magazines and books to thumb through to reminisce and find inspiration. This recipe hails all the way from 1998 and is a real winner in a timeless way. If you like Indian food and/or curry, this dish is sure to be a hit. And I was happy that unlike many curries, this one doesn’t use curry powder at all – just a lovely combination of ingredients providing sweet, heat, and spice for a perfect balance. Head over to my guest post on Culinary Covers for the full recipe!

Dark Chocolate Coconut Pudding {Paleo; Vegan}

Today marks mine and Mike’s 8th wedding anniversary, which seems completely crazy to me. (Crazy that eight years have passed, not that we’ve stuck together that long. Although, maybe it is a little crazy since we were so young when we got married…who says kids can’t make good choices? Lol.) Anyway, people have been congratulating us all over the place for passing the “seven year itch”, so I’ll take our 8th anniversary as a really good omen.

I don’t like PDAs (which includes PDAs on the blog!) so not to worry, I won’t get all mushy here. But I will tell you a little something about our honeymoon… (more…)

Salted Coconut Caramel Sauce {Paleo}

I know you’re going to see this caramel and think I’m a liar.

You’ll think it was made with naughty things heavy cream, white sugar, and bricks of butter. (more…)

Tropical Papaya-Coconut Cake

Oh boy is this cake good – a little too good to just have chilling in my fridge on a random weekday. Despite how delicious it is, this cake is actually quite unsightly; it doesn’t rise much and the top is craggy. But as far as looks go, not to worry because all will be well; a craggy top is nothing a little glaze can’t fix. (more…)

Nutty Biscotti {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats}

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Where you live, does it snow for Christmas? It used to snow here religiously every year. (Actually, I remember being a kid and trick-or-treating in the snow on Halloween some years!) Alas, we haven’t been guaranteed a white Christmas for the past four years or so.

Which is a crying shame, really…there’s just something about a blanket of white that makes Christmas feel so special. (more…)
