Peanut Butter Cup Macaroons (Low Sugar, Gluten and Grain Free!)

August 3, 2013

Last week, right before my birthday weekend, it occurred to me how different it is to be single and living in a studio apartment compared to my old life (the opposite of that). My college friend, Jenn, was coming to visit from Florida and I was really excited—we had a good chuckle over our dorm-style-living [...]

Favorite Things Dessert: Chocolate, Cheese, and Wine! (or chocolate avocado pudding, cheesecake mousse, and red wine syrup!)

May 19, 2013

On Friday night, I was making dinner for my cousin and two of her friends… and apparently I thought that was a good time to experiment on almost everything I was making. I had made the macadamia chicken before, but everything else was kind of “weird” and I was winging it as far as any [...]

Chocolate Avocado Pudding (with a bonus superfood ingredient!)

December 9, 2012

I made chocolate avocado pudding this weekend (again). I’ve always loved this stuff, and it’s quite a fun game to spring it on people who (a) don’t like avocados or (b) don’t know what the ingredients are. I’ve never had anyone guess that the main ingredient is avocado, and the only people who don’t like [...]

5 Minute Grain Free Breakfast Brownies {and why I don’t bake/cook with almond flour}

October 19, 2012

I’ve been perfecting the 5-minute brownie recipe for a few weeks now. The early versions seemed a little unpredictable, a little dry, and missing depth…kinda like my last date. Just kidding! (Kind of). Anyway, after several tries, I finally got a batch that was perfect…so I tried it one more time to make sure. It [...]

Orange Apricot Coconut Macaroons (or Truffles)

May 29, 2012

Sugar free, grain free….easy, and not many ingredients. That’s just how I do things. I was really surprised about how well these truffles/macaroons turned out. They really can be two different things, depending on if you dip or drizzle the chocolate! These do not need to be baked or dehydrated (in fact, I think that [...]

Chocholistic Truffles

March 26, 2012

Today, I have a review to share with you. Over the last 7 years, since I read the book, Naked Chocolate, I have been a great fan of all (unprocessed) things cacao/cocoa. Like most people, I spent most of my life believing that chocolate was an indulgent dessert. It wasn’t until I learned about the [...]

Dark Chocolate “Oreo” Granola w/ Peanut Butter — Perfect for Greek Yogurt or Ice Cream Topping!

March 15, 2012

I’ve been trying to think of a way to make cereal that doesn’t involve any grains. Or much sugar. And really, this kind of stumped me because low-sugar and no-grain cereal doesn’t sound very good (can it even be called cereal?). Today I came up with a cross between granola and cereal…and it was chocolate [...]

Challenges. AKA Opportunities… And Parfait.

March 3, 2012

Last night, I attended a benefit workshop called Pursuit of Happiness with Kurt Johnsen. He’s the founder of American Power Yoga, and has done a lot of work/learning in things like energy balance, tai chi, kung fu…and even astral travel (which sounds wonderful to me!). I enjoyed the two-hour talk very much, and identified with [...]

Jiggle Tea Smoothie, Lighting, and Moving!

July 7, 2011

This week flew by, didn’t it?! Since I’m working mostly from home all summer, distinguishing between weekdays and the weekend really doesn’t matter too much—except that more people are around me on the weekends, so I get less work done (a-Ok with me!). I’m still grinning at my garden pics—and there will be more to [...]

Superfood Brunch with My Mini-Me!

March 19, 2011

Wait till you see what we invented! ¬†They’re called Bressert Chips! I thought this week on my semi-spring break that I would have time to relax toward the end of the week. What actually happened is that I’m left wondering how I would have gotten my work done if I was not on break from [...]
