Cheezy Baked Polenta Fries

The Ultimate Non-Fast-Food Meal: Cook up some of my favorite Portobello Mushroom Burgers and serve with grilled onion rings on the side. Maybe grill slices of zucchini or red peppers while you’re at it. And, of course, you will want fries with that, right? Today’s Polenta Fries photos and recipe are courtesy of a talented […]

Red Velvet Brownies

I am one of those people who initially resists change. But when I finally dip my toe into the water am thrown into the water against my will, I swim with a vengeance, making up for lost time. Thus was the case when I first joined facebook (a year after everyone else), when I got […]

Single Serving Cinnamon Roll

Today’s guest post comes from a new friend I met just last week on Instagram. Immediately, I fell in love with not only the beautiful photography on her blog, but also with her catchy—and often humorous—writing style (see below). Oh, and the fact that she has a recipe for single-serving cinnamon rolls… How can you […]

The recipe comes from an incredibly-talented photographer and writer standing in while I wait for the internet to come back and remind myself never again to take hot showers for […]

Samoas Girl Scout Cookie Pie

Earlier this week, when I posted my Peanut Butter Tagalong Cookies Recipe, I hinted at having also made homemade Samoas (and Thin Mints; […]

Healthy Twix Bars

Lately, things have gotten entirely too healthy around here. Roasted vegetables? Lentil stew? Baked oatmeal? If it is true that this is the Healthy Dessert Blog, where are all the desserts? Where is all the CHOCOLATE? Oh there it is. When I compiled my candy recipes into the Healthy Chocolates & Candy page, many of you lamented […]

Chocolate-Zucchini Muffins

There’s a zucchini in my dessert! I love zucchini: the taste, the color, even the name. (It’s fun to say, right?) Therefore, it is only natural that I’d enjoy zucchini paired with one of my other great loves: chocolate! Such as in the above recipe: Chocolate-Grasshopper Pie. In general, zucchini lends moisture and softness to recipes without leaving […]

Vegan Bodybuilding with Robert Cheeke

I’m honored to have my friend Robert Cheeke as a guest today. He’s written an informative post on vegan bodybuilding and has even sent a  list of vegan foods that are high in protein. Robert Cheeke is pretty much the antithesis of what one thinks of when one hears the word “vegan.”  He definitely helps […]
