Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

Last night, I made babies. Lots of babies. Lots and lots of yummy babies. Lots and lots of these: Chocolate Peanut Butter Babies. Initially, the chocolate balls were to be a Christmas present for a friend on a gluten-free diet. But then I got on a baby-making roll; now all my friends are getting chocolate […]

Gingerbread Breakfast Cereal

*Heart* I *heart* gingerbread. If pumpkin is the poster child for fall, then gingerbread is winter’s darling. I kept this in mind as I blended up breakfast yesterday morning…   A seasonal twist on my favorite Pumpkin Bread in a Bowl. The following recipe reminds me of eating a thick slice of spicy-sweet gingerbread, hot out […]

Candyland Healthy Peppermint Bark

Yes, healthy peppermint bark! Candyland! By far, my favorite holiday candy is my Coconut Butter Candy Melties. Apparently, everyone else’s favorite holiday candy is peppermint bark. So I figured I’d combine my favorite with everyone else’s favorite to get something we all can love: When it’s difficult to keep from eating the whole thing before I can […]

Secret Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

What’s better than a vegan peanut butter cookie? How about a whole stack of vegan peanut butter cookies? Mmm yes, that’s better. Much better. If you’d really rather just have one, see this recipe: Single Serving Peanut Butter Cookie. I’ve been a vegan over ten years, which is also how long I’ve been making these […]

Vanilla-Pear Breakfast Cobbler

Breakfast gets fancy. Beautiful Pears I love pears; yet I rarely think to put them on my grocery list. I’ll pick up raspberries for oatmeal, grapefruit for a pre-run snack, bananas for my favorite Chocolate-Chip Banana Bread… I usually skip right by the quiet, unassuming pears. Recently, however, a recipe for pear muffins caught my […]

Four Ingredient Ice Cream

Smooth. Creamy. Sweet, drippy ice cream, cascading into a delicious pool of vanilla. Yeah, it’s winter. But I can’t keep this dreamy recipe to myself for the next four months. And actually, I really like eating ice cream in the winter. One of my favorite memories is of a Christmas my family spent with relatives […]

Deep-Dish Cinnamon Roll Pie

Look into the spiral. Swirly, twirly frosting. You are getting very sleepy hungry… See? Who says hypnosis doesn’t work? Birthday Girl A few weeks ago, my little sister flew in from Boston for Thanksgiving. Her birthday also falls close to the holiday, and therefore we held a special birthday dinner for her at my parents’ […]

Gingerbread Peanut Butter

Home Alone, Love Actually, Elf… I have a giant stack of Christmas movies all ready to watch. One of my favorite parts of December is watching as many Christmas movies as I possibly can. (Another is listening to holiday music on the radio. Does anyone else think “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” is the […]

Homemade Gingerbread Spice Latte

It’s a homemade and healthy gingerbread latte! Where’s my Coffee? My roommate, Emily, is one of those people who absolutely cannot function until she’s had her morning cup of coffee. So our kitchen is fully equipped with a Keurig machine and stacks of flavored coffee pods. Yesterday, after my run, I decided to play around […]

Healthy Chocolate Pecan Pie

Chocolate pecan pie. Of course chocolate. Would you expect anything less from a chocolate-covered blog? You all saw my ugly pecan pie. Luckily, the second try turned out much prettier–and much more delicious. This secretly healthy pecan pie is the perfect balance of gooey, chewy, rich, and sweet. If you can’t stop eating the raw batter, you know […]

Buttery Pecan Pie Biscuits

I know you just saw a biscuit post on Thursday. But I wanted to post this pecan-pie version before Thanksgiving, as these biscuits would be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner! And they’d be even more perfect for “Thanksgiving leftovers” sandwiches the next day.   Buttery Pecan Pie Biscuits (makes 8-12) 1 and 3/4c spelt flour (or white, […]

No-Bake Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

EDIT: I finally have a Pumpkin Pinterest Board! What does chocolate + pumpkin equal? Anyone? Anyone? One incredibly-delicious dessert, that’s what. And it’s gluten-free! What’s on your Thanksgiving menu? I might make apple pie, or my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars. Or I might just make both. Then I won’t feel bad if all the addictive oatmeal-raisin bars happen […]

Chocolate Almond Joy Biscuits

If a biscuit and a scone had babies: Until yesterday, I’d never made biscuits. (Unless you call popping open a can of Pillsbury Grands “making biscuits.”) I was surprised by how quickly this recipe–which I created yesterday morning–came together. For some reason, I’d always been under the impression that biscuit-making was difficult. But that’s not the case […]

Sugar-Free Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip

This is what happens when two roommates are bored on a Monday night: Brownie batter happens. Just to be clear: Lentil stew also happened Monday night. We didn’t only eat brownie batter for dinner. Although that might have been fun… By popular demand, what follows is a sugar-free version of my Dark Chocolate Brownie Dip. Emily and […]

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Larabars

These are my new favorite homemade Larabars: Only, they’re not really Larabars at all. I stumbled upon the recipe while making Hot Fudge Brownie Larabars. The hot-fudge Larabars used to be my favorite. But their place has now been usurped… by a non-chocolate bar?! Yes, these oatmeal cookie bars are so good I like them […]
