Death by Chocolate

My recipe for Death by Chocolate comes from my husband's family, and it truly lives up to it's name. I've taken the liberty to change the recipe around to make for a healthier chocolate indulgence. Strangely enough, my healthier version turned out even more rich and decadent than the original. This is mostly because my chocolate cake recipe is a ... Read More

Grain Free Cookie Dough Brownies

This is a version of an old recipe of mine I brought out of my 'retired recipes pile' and gave a good makeover! I heard that phrase to 'bring a recipe out of retirement' from a friend a few weeks ago, and just had to borrow it. I know it's a common story now that more and more information becomes ...

Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie

The recipe title Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie pretty much tells you everything you need to know about this addictive smoothie. But what it doesn't express is just how good this really is. It's hard to define, and I don't seem to have words for how much I love this smoothie. Suffice it to say, the sparkle in Tyler's eyes and ... Read More

Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread

My mom used to make a chocolate zucchini bread when I was growing up. And while I'd never turn it down, I always secretly wanted brownies instead because they were so much fudgier. So when I set out to make a healthier version of this childhood recipe, I decided to amp up the chocolate to be truly worthy of any ... Read More

Double Chocolate Gluten Free Crepes

I can't think of a better way to start off a weekend morning! We keep things pretty simple during the workweek, but when the weekend comes, I love to step it up a bit. There's a certain indulgent feeling I crave that comes from a leisurely morning, complete with breakfast and a nice cup of coffee over hours of catching ... Read More

Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Tart

Today we're pairing decadence with no-bake convenience in this Nutella inspired tart. It looks impressive, yet it's quite easy to make. Although I won't deceive you, peeling the hazelnuts takes a little time, that will more than rewarded when you take your first bite! The ultimate dessert for me is one that can be made ahead, and kept in the ... Read More

No Bake Fudge Frosted Brownies

I teased you a while back with a picture of these right around Christmas time, and I fully intended to get you the recipe right away. But... I got distracted with these Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins and then there was some Chocolate Fudge Skillet Cake. And somehow 10 weeks flew by, so you'll have to accept my full apologies for ... Read More

Chocolate Fudge Skillet Cake

Today is about chocolate, because it's the weekend and I love chocolate. This cake is so quick and easy to make, it's all too easy to get yourself into trouble having too much of it around! Now... I know it's been a few weeks since there's been a chocolate recipe, (see Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins) but rest assured I have a few ... Read More

Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

I'm becoming more and more of a savory person over time, but sometimes I still really crave sweet baked goods for breakfast. Luckily these cravings usually strike on the weekend when I have a little more time to bake! I've had this idea in my head for a while, but I just haven't gotten around to it with a super ...
