Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie

I love getting requests for recipes because more often than not, it takes me outside my comfort zone and into ideas I would've never had myself. This peanut butter banana cream pie is just such a recipe request. I often make my No-Bake Banana Cream Pie or these Deep Dish Peanut Butter Cheesecakes Brownies, (which are a spin off peanut ...

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

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
