Totally Addictive Cornbread

This healthy cornbread is completely flourless! Southern Comfort Food If you were to peek inside the kitchen pantry of my childhood, I guarantee you’d find at least one box of Jiffy corn muffin mix. Although we rarely ate packaged foods (my mom preferred to cook from scratch), the Jiffy mix was an exception. Now that I’m […]

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 […]

Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies

Haven’t you always wanted to eat cookies for breakfast?? These sugar free cookies are filled with wholesome ingredients like bananas, oats, and raisins. See? Totally acceptable for breakfast. Or lunch. Mmm sure, why not? Normally, my goal is to make my healthy dessert recipes not taste healthy. However, these cookies are an exception to that […]

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 […]

Sweet Potato Chili

This sweet potato chili is so good! It’s so good I’m breaking my blog’s “desserts only” rule to post the recipe. The sweet potato chili, along with the Secret Peanut Butter Cookies, is one of the first recipes I ever made without following instructions in a cookbook; I made up the recipe as a new vegan living in China. And […]

Eggless Cookie Dough Truffles

No butter. No eggs. No flour. No shoes, no shirt, no service. And yet… These secretly-healthier cookie dough truffles are scarfed down by everyone who’s ever tried them. Even without butter, eggs, and flour, they taste just as sinfully delicious as traditional cookie dough truffles. Don’t worry if you’re bored of all my Recipes with […]

Funfetti Cupcake for One

Happy 2012! Did you stay up ‘til midnight this year? I had a really low-key Sunday to make up for a crazy New Year’s Eve the night before. Since our party wasn’t starting until ten, Emily and I offered to babysit the two sweetest children in the universe so their parents could go out for […]

Sugar Cookie Oatmeal

A big, fat sugar cookie. But softer and chewier, and much more filling! This was the delicious breakfast I made on Sunday, in honor of Christmas. As I prepared my morning oats, the box of  Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea sat on the counter, staring me straight in the face. (See, sometimes a messy counter can […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mini Eggnog Spice Cake with Creamy Dreamy Frosting

Aww look, it’s fun-sized! Spice up your life I was in fourth grade when the Spice Girls hit the scene. My friend Jackie got their album for Christmas, and we’d dance around the house to it, wearing crazy outfits and hairdos. (One of the songs was called “Naked.” Jackie’s mom made sure we always skipped […]

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 […]

Hot Chocolate Cookies

Someone take this bottle of chocolate syrup away from me. It’s getting out of control. Really out of control. Imagine: Cookies that taste like hot chocolate! Melting slowly in your mouth like a truffle. Like a rich, chocolatey truffle. And yet these hot chocolate cookies are healthier than you could ever imagine, with absolutely no […]
