Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice cream

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Yes. Another post with chocolate….are you complaining? Hmm… didn’t think so! What can I say….I love making desserts and seeing that it is summer, ice cream was very fitting. Healthy ice cream is even more exciting. There is fat in it, but the majority of it comes from peanut butter, which is a healthy fat. [...]

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

No-Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars-Gluten Free

What goes fabulous with chocolate? Peanut butter…cherries…orange…and ESPECIALLY mint. I used to love eating those girl scout thin mint cookies, but after doing some research, they are so unhealthy! They are full of artificial ingredients, oils, preservatives and not vegan. Not trying to knock the good girl scouts, because I believe everything in moderation, but [...]

Cinnamon roll bliss bars

Cinnamon Roll Bliss Bars

Pure. Cinnamon. Bliss. These bars are my FAVORITE creation so far…no lie. Maybe it’s all the cinnamon, maybe it’s the fact that they are healthy, or maybe, just maybe it’s that cinnamon glaze oozing all over them! Regardless, I know I will be making these weekly now. I LOVE cinnamon rolls, Cinnabon buns….well, really anything [...]

Melon Berry Popsicles

It’s soooooo hot outside and my husband loves watermelon and I love strawberries. Keeping that in mind, I decided to make these popsicles with both flavors. They are really sweet and creamy, just what you need to cool off. Believe it or not, my husband actually said he’d prefer more strawberry and less watermelon! It’s [...]

Cinnamon Maple Carrots

Carrots or Candy?!

What could taste better and SMELL better than cinnamon and maple?? How about cinnamon, maple and a hint of sweet paprika smothered all over carrots! These are so easy to prepare and taste delicious…just like candy. To be honest though, I don’t know which I  like better…the taste or the smell. They smell that good. [...]

Tacos with poblano cream sauce

Meatless Tacos With Poblano Pepper Cream Sauce

A couple weeks back I posted my red lentil spinach soup which my best friend, Kacy, made for her fiancé for dinner. They both really loved the recipe but she told me she added a poblano pepper to it, which to me, sounded delicious! Ever since then, I haven’t been able to get those poblano [...]

Asian Salad

Sweet ‘N’ Spicy Asian Salad

This is a recipe I adapted from my mother. During my pregnancy (10 months ago) and the couple months following my daughter’s birth, I consumed a lot of it. I’ve never been huge on Asian flavors, except for the usual fried rice, but this sauce is just heavenly. It’s sweet, spicy and creamy. It’s ready [...]

Apple Cinnamon Pie Shake

Apple Cinnamon Pie Shake

I ran a bunch of errands today out in this dreadful Texas heat and decided I wanted something different than my typical smoothie. So, I created this apple cinnamon pie shake using coconut and almond milk. If you like apple and cinnamon, you will love this. It hit the spot and cooled me off! 3/4 [...]
