  • You'll never guess these chocolate cookies are made with avocado!

Recipe: Avocado Chocolate Cookies

I'll be honest: "You'll never guess what's in this" has never been my favorite introduction to trying a new food. There have been plenty of times that a food came with that preface and tasted wonderful, but despite the fact that I consider myself fairy adventurous in the food department, I always have to fight [...]

  • This real-food baked banana pudding is gluten free, pretty and delicious!

Recipe: Baked Banana Pudding

Banana pudding was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. I had forgotten how much I enjoy it, but when I ended up with too many bananas this week and started researching what to do with them I saw quite a few fun recipes for old-fashioned banana pudding! Yum. The one that interested [...]

  • Delicious and healthy stuffed baked apples with organic dried fruit and honey whipped cream. Yum!

Recipe: Stuffed Baked Apples

Sometimes you get in a rut and just need a little something fun for dessert! Baked apples are fun all by themselves, but I love this twist on an old favorite.

  • No holiday guilt here: Grain free cookie dough truffles. Um, yes please!

Cookie Dough Truffles: Grain Free, Guilt Free

There seems to be two very opposing mentalities that make a very public appearance during the last two months of the year. On the one hand you have the "I will NOT eat crap this holiday season" folks who stress and worry about every little gathering, party, or trip to the store. Food is their [...]

  • Apple Pie Ice Cream!? Um, yes.

Recipe: Apple Pie Ice Cream

I'm so thrilled to welcome back Alison from The Sprouting Seed to share another fantastic recipe. You guys know how much I love ice cream... and Fall.

  • Have to try these chewy chocolate ginger snaps!

Recipe: Chewy Chocolate Ginger Snaps

My college roommate was way ahead of her time.  While the rest of us were skipping breakfast and living off coffee and Ramen noodles, she checked cookbooks out from  the College library and shopped at the farmer's market.  She was the only 20 year old I knew who could identify an acorn squash, much less [...]

Recipe: Lemon Watermelon Jello Wedges

I love summer day filled with copious amounts of sunshine, picnics, bike rides and jello. Yes, jello. Itʼs my new thing. Itʼs an incredibly refreshing conclusion to a long, hot day.

  • Strawberry Banana Muffins! Super yummy, easy, and freezable!

Recipe: Whole Wheat Strawberry Banana Muffins (A quick and easy make-ahead breakfast!)

I really like muffins. Slightly sweet. Convenient. Pretty. What's not to like? Of course, most store bought muffins (or ones that come from a box mix) are full of processed junk that your body doesn't need: Industrialized vegetable oils, trans fat, artificial ingredients and preservatives, refined sugars, etc. And it's a shame, because making your [...]

Recipe: Honey Sweetened Strawberry Lemon Sorbet

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for cold things like sorbet. It's just so refreshing and delightful. And anyone who knows the kind of winter I had (blah) can bet their money that I'm looking for any signs of spring and summer. So when I saw the beautiful organic strawberries at [...]

  • Double Chocolate Cookies. These are so delicious and use only real ingredients!

Recipe: Double chocolate cookies (using only REAL ingredients)

Confession. I'm really not that much of a chocolate fan. Between that and my dislike for high heels and shopping I sometimes feel like a stranger in the "girls' club." But that's okay. Despite my general "whatever" for chocolate, I love love LOVE these double chocolate cookies. Not only are they rich, soft, and so [...]

  • Chocolate Truffle Cake (it's okay to indulge... this one's good for you.)

Recipe: Chocolate Truffle Cake (nobody needs to know it’s healthy…)

I believe in desserts. No really, I do. And I still believe in being healthy. How can I believe both? Because they don't have to be mutually exclusive.

  • Black bean brownies... No, really. They are yummy!

Recipe: Black Bean Brownies

Black bean brownies? Wow. That sounds... uh, yummy? Okay, I get it. The first time I made these I had to do it secretly so my husband wouldn't know what I was up to. I didn't think he'd even try these if he knew they had black beans inside of them. But after he devoured [...]
