Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

When I was younger, I hated any and all lemon-flavored desserts with a passion. Lemon bars, lemon meltaway cookies, and even lemon meringue pie were all on my list.

(But oddly enough, I was a big fan of super sour lemon-flavored WarHeads candy – does anyone else remember those? Incidentally, I consider this proof positive that there is no rhyme or reason to kids’ tastes.) (more…)

Butternut Butterscotch Pudding

Thank you to General Mills for sponsoring this post. I like to make sure that my family gets as many veggies in as possible, even in unexpected places; along those lines, we enjoyed this Butternut Butterscotch Pudding and I hope your family does too.

Butternut Butterscotch Pudding

There is no food that reminds me of school lunches as a kid more than pudding does.

(Except maybe tunafish sandwiches, which were ubiquitous in my lunchbox, despite my pleading with my mom for something else. It was a rare happy occasion when a fluffernutter found its way in there, but when it did, what a bartering tool it was! It was the gold of the lunch table, and anyone was willing to give up anything to get it. But back to pudding.)

I think my mom thought chocolate was my favorite flavor (which would make sense…me and chocolate go way back) because it’s what she used to pack most frequently. But butterscotch was what I was really after, at least when it came to pudding. Heck, to me it was even worth trading a fluffernutter for. (more…)

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…)

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…)

These muffins are a special treat. For starters, they combine the two favorite foods of just about every girl I know (and a few guys too!): coffee and chocolate. (more…)

Healthy Chocolate-Walnut Fudge

A while ago I bought a bulk-sized package of creamed coconut on Amazon. I was actually looking for coconut cream but I couldn’t find it; not realizing that several coconut products (creamed coconut, coconut cream, and cream of coconut) were named in a lawyer-like fashion with their meaning hinging on an ever-so-slight difference in word ordering, I bought a six-pack.

How different could creamed coconut really be from coconut cream?, I asked myself. I was about to find out.

Let’s just say, perhaps the only thing they have in common is that they’re made from coconut. (more…)

Mini Vanilla-Almond Cupcakes {Grain-Free & Sugar-Free}

Here’s the recipe I promised you in my Philly Indulgence post…but I can’t take credit for this delicious recipe.  ;)

My friend Lisa (author of the bog Thrive Style) is incredibly talented.  She is constantly coming up with super healthy treats that are just as delicious as they are healthy…which means they’re perfect for not only nourishing your body, but also for satiating a sweet tooth.  (And when I mean healthy, I don’t mean healthier-but-still-not-healthy; I mean legitimately healthy.  Breakfast-food healthy.) 

And when I can eat a breakfast that tastes indulgent but will leave me feeling energized and ready to start my day, I am one very happy girl. (more…)
