Today is day two of my 7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats event, and I’d like to have something for everyone. I know this recipe will appeal to the more health-conscious. Maybe you enjoy festive baking, but want to eat a bit cleaner – something along the lines of my Skinny Caramel Macchiato Cookies? I think you’ll love these. (more…)

I can’t do dry cake. Or gummy cake. Or bland cake.
I’d rather eat celery sticks.
Even if I’m dying for a chocolate fix.
Have you tried chia seeds? I first had them sprinkled on a salad a couple years ago…they are delicious with a subtle nutty flavor, and they pair well with so many things. (They’re a great addition to smoothies, oatmeal, and muffins!) For the past year or so, I’ve been seeing chia seed pudding all over the place and I decided it was finally time to try it for myself.

It’s not new, but on the off chance that someone hasn’t made chocolate avocado pudding I wanted to share my version. If you’re on the fence about making it, give it a try! If the fact that it’s healthy doesn’t sell you, just know that its creaminess rivals that of any chocolate pudding you’ve indulged in. (And no, you can’t taste the avocado!) :) (more…)
So, what are you making for dessert tonight? Maybe something like that Caramel Apple Cake I saw on your blog a while ago?, a friend excitedly asked me around 2 o’clock one afternoon.
I thought we’d forgo dessert this time, you know, since everyone is trying to eat healthy…, I trailed off. Dead silence from my friend.
I guess “eating healthy” doesn’t mean skipping dessert, even for a regular weeknight meal among close friends that’s not in celebration of anything other than it being a Tuesday night.
I can roll with it. Dessert was back on the menu, stat. (more…)
Tofu is always a treat in my house since I don’t make it very often. One of my favorite things about tofu is that it’s kind-of like the vegan version of chicken breast, in that it’s a completely blank canvas for whatever you want to season it with. (more…)
To everyone who took the time to read my last post, comment on it, send me an email, or message me on Facebook – thank you! I was so nervous about publishing that post, but I can see that it was worth it. Your kind thoughts, comments, and gestures mean the world to me. XO, Faith
Moving on to some food… ;)
About a month ago Mike asked me if I secretly became a vegetarian. I had to laugh because I know what he’s talking about…but no, really I haven’t (I almost wish I could, but sometimes I just crave a good burger, you know? Or roast chicken…mmm…). But on a daily (or even weekly) basis, I do seem to be eating less and less meat. (And that says a lot because I was never a huge meat eater to begin with; I could never just sit down and polish off a steak in one sitting…a couple bites and now we’re talking though.) (more…)
If you’ve ever been invited to my house for a meal, or if I’ve ever been invited to your house and brought a dish to pass, you probably already know that I love surprise ingredients…I get really excited and even a little giddy. My mantra usually goes something like this: I made _____ (fill in the blank with any normal sounding dish), but there’s a secret ingredient – guess what it is!
