How to have a Chocolate St. Patrick’s Day!

This is going to be one green post. I think green foods are my favorite: Kale, broccoli, zucchini… And mint-chocolate chip!! Healthy Shamrock Shakes Have you ever tried a McDonalds’ shamrock shake? I actually haven’t, but I make this shake at least once a month. It is so incredibly delicious… and so vibrantly green! Mint-Chocolate […]

Mint Chocolate Fudge Pie

For serious fudge lovers only. Pi equals 3.14 Which makes today—March 14th—National Pie Day. I celebrated a day early with this ultra-fudgey mint-chocolate-chip pie. But it’s ok; there are still a few slices left… so I can will celebrate again today. For quite some time, I’d been meaning to try a mint version of my […]

Key Lime Pie Parfaits

Mmmmm Florida… Soft, sandy beaches. Cool ocean breezes. Sunshine. Sunshine. Sunshine… And key lime pie. I often think I should move to Florida. Some of my happiest childhood memories are from visiting my grandparents’ home in West Palm Beach. On those vacations, we did everything you’d typically associate with Florida living: splashed in the pool, […]

Thin Mint Brownies

I’ve always wondered… What if I added cocoa powder to my peppermint toothpaste? Mint-chocolate toothpaste? Or black teeth?! 😕 Or maybe toothpaste so yummy it’d be difficult to not eat in mass quantities, straight from the tube. Perhaps it’s a very good thing my toothpaste is just plain peppermint and I keep the cocoa where […]

Avocado-Free Guacamole

Surprise… this isn’t guacamole! It sure looks like guacamole. But the secret ingredient in this avocado-free dip is… asparagus?! Yes, it’s true! And you can use it any way you’d use regular guacamole: as a dip for chips or veggies, spread on a sandwich, as a sauce for pasta or baked potatoes, or plain with a […]

$100 online shopping spree (giveaway!)

What would you do with $100? Nowadays, sadly, $100 can go pretty quickly. It’d be gone in a matter of minutes at Whole Foods. Or j crew. Anthropologie? Forget it… I won’t even let myself go into that store! $100 would buy me a pant leg. And what could I do with just one pant […]

Ferrero Rocher Ice Milk

Welcome. You’ve Got Mail. Do you remember the days of aol? Or dial-up? When only one person could be online at a time, and it tied up the phone line? I have to remind myself about those days every time I think the internet’s working slowly now! In the 1990s, aol seemed poised to take over […]

Rated R Ice Cream

I am tipsy. And it’s not even 10 am… Uh oh. This could be a long day. R Rated Ice Cream (gluten-free!) One of my Special Diet Recipes. 1 3/4 cups milk of choice, or nondairy creamer (see note below) 1/4 cup hazelnut liqueur (Frangelico) 2 packets stevia (or 2 tablespoons sugar) 1/8 tsp salt […]

High Calorie Recipes

Feels like forever since my last post. Really, though, it’s only been two days. I left the last post up for a bit because of its important message, and also because this gave me a chance to thoroughly read through all of the heartfelt and personal comments so many people took time to leave. It […]

How to gain weight on a healthy diet

Does healthy eating = low-calorie eating? It can… but it depends a great deal on the individual person. In many cases, I’d argue that a low-calorie diet is not ideal for optimum health (such as the case of an athlete, a growing child or teen, an underweight or healthy-weight adult, etc.). Today’s post is going […]
