Java Chip Frappuccino

Java Chip Frappuccino

Sweet, icy coffee drinks (frappuccinos) may be one of the greatest pleasures this world has to offer. Maybe I say this because it’s summer and I have no air conditioning or because I really love coffee (or both), but hey. Doesn’t mean it isn’t true. […]

Double Chocolate Sunbutter Bliss Balls

Double Chocolate Sunbutter Bliss Balls

Medjool dates are a deep and intense passion of mine. So gooey, so versatile, so caramel-y. Like crack. Crack is like that, right? Caramel-y? Versatile? Gooey? Can’t decide which one of those is a funnier comparison to crack. Never mind. Connect with me:

Chia Cherry “Pie”

Chia Cherry “Pie”

I’m back at you with another delicious Valentine’s Day treat because holidays are the best, and I like working my baking muscle every once in awhile. Plus, very little beats a sweet treat if you ask me. Now, I know I call this a “pie.” […]

Sweet Potato Toast

Sweet Potato Toast

Toast is really, really good. No one, even someone who stays as far away from bread as I do, can deny that. More than the fact that it’s bread, it’s great because it’s a blank canvas for DELICIOUS TOPPINGS. And if I love anything in […]

4-Ingredient Paleo Butternut Squash Brownies

4-Ingredient Paleo Butternut Squash Brownies

Brownies have a very, very special place in my heart. They’re my ultimate childhood sleepover food. I have many a special memory making brownies out of the box in the middle of the night and eating the entire pan…man, a 12-year-old metabolism sure is incredible. But brownies […]

Chia Seed “PB & J” Parfait

Chia Seed “PB & J” Parfait

Breakfast is the best meal of the day because it can be kind of like dessert that’s super good for you. It can also be kind of like dessert that’s not super good for you, but well, I’m not really into that. So here, my friends, is my […]

Easy Low Carb/Paleo Energy Balls (Date-Free!)

Easy Low Carb/Paleo Energy Balls (Date-Free!)

Energy balls have basically swept the health food stratosphere. They’re nutrient-packed, easy to eat, and come on, they’re usually pretty adorable. However, these babies are more often than not made first & foremost with dates. Which can be great! But for people like me who can’t […]
