Truffle Chocolate Cream Pie

I created this pie as a healthier version of the chocolate cream pies we had at our wedding 9 years ago. As you're reading this we're on our way for a fun weekend in Canada where we got married. And every year at this time, I always find myself dreaming of chocolate cream pie. So this year, I decided to ... Read More

Chocolate Raspberry Cream Candy Cups

This recipe was inspired by a couple of things. The first one is Tyler's love of the classic chocolate raspberry combination, and the second is peanut butter cups of all things. Of course we both love peanut butter cups, (and you can find my homemade recipe in my Inspired Ice Creams e-book). But I wanted to use their shape as ... Read More

Healthy Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding

We've been making this pudding for years, and it never ceases to please whenever I make it for company. It's easy to throw together in the food processor, and it can be made ahead as well for the ultimate convenience. I've even made it meal prep style and portioned it out in the small 1/4 cup sized mason jars for ... Read More

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
