Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies – GF & DF

I know a lot of people turn their nose up at No-Bake Cookies, listing how they're simple and not a product of "real baking," but not this girl. This girl loves any snack or dessert that involves chocolate, peanut butter, and shredded coconut coming together to form a delicious balance of sweet and salty perfection… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies – GF & DF

Chili Lime Chicken Burrito Bowls – GF, DF

Both my husband and I enjoy the time we spend in the kitchen cooking for our family, and I am thankful that the kids are taking notice and becoming interested in helping and getting creative in their own ways. Our youngest, Brooklyn, brought home a flyer from school announcing a healthy cooking competition and wanted… Continue reading Chili Lime Chicken Burrito Bowls – GF, DF

Double Chocolate Banana Cake

You guys, the pictures just can't all be winners... I just feel like I have to lead this post with that advisory statement. Because I feel it is *really* important you know that these pictures DO NOT do this Double Chocolate Banana Cake any justice. Okay, now that that is out of the way, let's… Continue reading Double Chocolate Banana Cake

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

I hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season with family and friends. I have been a little MIA myself over the past couple weeks doing the same (eating too much and drinking a tad more wine than is probably recommended...ha!), but I am back in the game and ready to share some seriously… Continue reading Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Frosted Almond Sugar Cookies

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to bake, decorate, and (of course) eat sugar cookies with the family. It is simply not Christmas without decorated sugar cookies. As far back as I can remember, we have always done this each and every year, and it the one thing the kids truly enjoy making during… Continue reading Frosted Almond Sugar Cookies

Spiced Molasses Cookies- Paleo

For as long as I can remember, molasses cookies have been a delicious part of our family's holiday traditions. My sweet, sweet Grams made an incredibly soft, perfectly spiced cookie with a simple powdered sugar glaze. In my adult life, I only successfully made her recipe twice. She was one of those amazingly talented old… Continue reading Spiced Molasses Cookies- Paleo

Egg Roll Bowls

This is the dinner that almost wasn't... the post that almost didn't happen because disaster ensued mid-cooking... Anyone else's kids absolutely obsessed with slime? Our girls have a serious infatuation with it. It has made its share of messes and stains and ruined countless household items, but we hit a new level of catastrophe on… Continue reading Egg Roll Bowls

Melty Chocolate Lava Cake for 2

We live in a world that tells us, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." I'm gonna call bullshit on that one and state the obvious facts: 1- whoever said that hasn't tasted this cake and 2- we need indulgence once in awhile. Life is too short to worry about trivial things... Don't spend the… Continue reading Melty Chocolate Lava Cake for 2

Dark Chocolate & Toasted Pecan Cookies

Call me crazy, call me cliche, but there is something that is honest-to-god decadently comforting about chocolate. While my palate's preferences vary vastly from season to season, chocolate is ALWAYS A THING in my world. Summer, spring, winter, and fall, chocolate knows no limits when it comes to satisfying the sweet tooth for this girl.… Continue reading Dark Chocolate & Toasted Pecan Cookies
