Slave to the Scale

A lot of people have been emailing lately, asking if I can list recipe measurements in cup amounts instead of grams.  . Why do I prefer grams to cups?  Measuring in grams gives a much more precise amount.  For example, a cup of dates is a very vague measurement: there’s a big difference between a loosely-packed […]

Teenie Tahini Babies

I used the Peanut Butter Cup Baby recipe and subbed tahini for the peanut butter. They were yummy… but the regular peanut butter ones are better. Plus, they kind of look like meatballs 😕

What’s in your Speedo?

If a banana hammock kingdom exists (scary thought…), blog reader Priscilla should be queen! Are you ready for the Holy Grail of Banana Hammocks?  I can assure you that you’re not. Here it is anyway. Does she define the word “genius” or what? Priscilla stuffed her banana hammock with marshmallows (vegans can use Ricemallow Cream, Smuckers, […]

S’mores Fudge Babies

S’mores Babies Use the formula for the Cookie Dough Babies. Add a little Ricemellow Creme or Smuckers Marshmallow Sauce, then blend.  Cover your morsels in crushed graham crackers, flax seeds, or wheat germ (or just mix one of these things into the batter).

Make Magic Soup

I don’t know where the myth comes from that Texas winters are warm. Maybe in Austin… But then again, I heard that even they got some snow this week! Weather it be cold or warm, one can always count on soup. (And yes, I’m aware of the spelling error in that sentence.) “Magic Soup” isn’t so much […]

White Foods Are Bad For You

Did you know there’s such a thing as the “No white foods” diet? Scarily enough, it’s true!  The real idea behind the diet is to cut out white, processed/starchy foods (i.e. white flour).  But apparently, followers are told to stay away from all white foods so they don’t get confused as to what’s acceptable and what’s […]

Use #1,000 for Coconut Butter

Slather it all over some 24 Carrot Cake Cupcakes and fall in love. Seriously, I think if you ate this coconut butter mixed into dirt, it would still taste good.

Banana Hammocks

Brought to you by Princess Consuela, herself. (Yes, another Friends reference. Seems I may have an obsession that is only rivaled by my fudge baby obsession…) Mike: Do you even know what a ‘banana hammock’ is? Phoebe: It’s a funny word! Mike: It’s a Speedo. Okay, so if you weren’t a Friends-watcher, you’ll have absolutely […]
