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 […]

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 […]

Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Pie

You will fall in love with this pie. Are you in love yet? How about now? Back when I was in high school, a few friends and I started a tradition of an annual “girls’ night” on or around February 14th. Going off to different colleges forced us to skip a few years, and new […]

German-Chocolate Fudge Bites

I taste like a fudge brownie. No one will ever guess that such fudgey chocolate balls could possibly be 100% free of sugar, butter, and flour. Shhhh… no need to tell anyone they’re healthy. Healthy? Who, me? German Chocolate Fudge Bites (Makes 10-14 balls) Inspired by Hot Fudge Larabars 3/4 cup pitted dates (I like […]

(Sugar-Free!) powdered sugar

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… Is it snowing where you are? As usual, Dallas weather doesn’t know what it wants to do. So it vacillates from 25 to 75 and back again. Shorts one day, fleece pants the next. Always on our toes. No snow here yet, but I do have […]

Chocolate Frosting Shots!

EDIT: If you received an email from Pinterest saying I didn’t want recipes pinned, this is NOT true! I’m so sorry for this and have no idea why they would send out such a message! As is obvious from the fact I have a Chocolate Covered Pinterest Board, I love and appreciate when people pin […]

Homemade Chocolate Bars

Homemade Chocolate Bars Three ingredients. Five minutes. These homemade chocolate bars pretty much make themselves. It’s especially fun to customize the flavor, and they taste like eating the coating right off of a chocolate Dove bar. Updated Recipes: I’m trying to make the recipe pages easier to navigate… A few readers have said it’s confusing—with […]

Healthy Nutella

Healthy Nutella: My new obsession. Soon to be your new obsession. Once you try this healthy Nutella chocolate spread, you’ll never want to put your spoon down. Never ever. Unless, of course, you don’t like Nutella… Is that even possible? Is there a person in this world who can resist that velvety chocolate butter? (If it’s […]

Sugar Cookie Ice Cream

I just want you for my own. More than you could ever know. Make my wish come true… All I want for Christmas is You! When it comes to holiday decorating, I like to go all-out: sparkly garland hugging the banisters, stuffed snowmen adorning the mantle, no-nonsense nutcrackers standing guard at the kitchen table… Nothing […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
