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

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Filling

This recipe started off as the vaguest of ideas. I was actually procrastinating the task at hand and thinking about food, (what else is new?) when I had this thought, 'wouldn't it be nice if the whole house could smell like apple pie, without actually making apple pie'. That was really all it took to spark an idea, and from ... 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 ...

Cranberry Orange Shortbread Streusel Bars

I had a request for these earlier this year, but since it was March and I was heading into spring recipes, I had to make a note of it for later. Luckily it's finally cranberry season so I can make this idea a reality. Cranberry orange is such a great combination, and turning it into streusel bars is the best ... Read More

Gluten Free Caramel Apple Galette

Tyler's favorite dessert is apple pie, or pretty much anything apple cinnamon related. So over the years, I've developed lots of recipes with that combo in mind from this Apple Crisp with a Twist to my Cinnamon Crunch Apple Pie Smoothie Bowls. But unfortunately like we were talking about last week with my Chicken Pot Pie Pasta recipe, gluten free ... Read More

Creamy Coconut Banana Nice Cream

This summer has been one of salads, ice cream, and of course lots of watermelon! It's been unusually hot here, so all things cold are in order for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Thank goodness for nice creams to keep me eating frosty treats without having to worry about eating too much sugar. Nice cream is a relatively new term that ... Read More

No Bake Caramel Blackberry Cheesecake

No bake cheesecakes are such an awesome dessert, especially for summertime. They're one of my favorite things to bring along to family dinners, potlucks, or pretty much any type of celebration! And since I've had so many requests for a dairy free cheesecake, I decided it was time to get serious about developing one. This cheesecake is not only decadent, ... Read More

5 Minute Soft Serve Peach Nice Cream

We've been experiencing an unexpected heat wave lately in Montana. It's been well into the nineties almost every single day, and to be honest, we're just not used to that kind of heat here! I feel pretty lucky since we have a nice cool basement to sleep in whenever the upstairs is unbearable. And we've been grilling pretty much everything, ... 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
