Gluten Free Brownies

I gave up gluten for lent, so for 40 days I’m living a gluten free lifestyle. I feel so much better, I have more energy, and I’m able to get more creative in what I order at restaurants! Despite this fact, I’ve been craving brownies like crazy for the last week so I decided to find a recipe for gluten free brownies. I really didn’t … Read the post >>

Strawberry Cake Truffles

This Valentine’s Day, I wanted to make a sweet treat that tasted good for my sweet husband but looked pretty for me. These strawberry truffles did just that! They are sweet, pretty, and fun to make. My first batch came out terribly gooey and kind of gross because my cake to frosting ratio was completely off. The second time around they were perfectly cake and … Read the post >>

Apple Cinnamon Crumble

I wanted to make a fun fall dessert one last time before we really start getting into peppermint bark territory. To be honest, I’m sick of pumpkin. I’ve made pumpkin bread, brownies, smoothies, and bread pudding and I’m all pumpkined out. In fact, I think this fall has been such a tough time with the hurricane, a busy work schedule, and settling back into life … Read the post >>

Chocolate Pie

A few weeks ago, I went to my friend’s baby shower where her mother made the most heavenly chocolate pie I’ve ever tasted. In her family, they call it “Chateau de Ville” and they eat it at every birthday, holiday, and family event. Now that I’ve tasted it, I know why! I had to try it out for myself so I made it immediately after … Read the post >>

Almond Butter Cookies

My great-grandmother used to preach that eating six almonds/day would prevent cancer. Perhaps it was all the anti-inflammatory Omega-3s or the high fiber content, but it worked! I’ve inherited her love for almonds and found a new (not quite so healthy) way to eat them. I was thinking about making peanut butter cookies this weekend but when I looked in the refrigerator, I saw that … Read the post >>

S’Mores Brownies

I had a dinner party last night for some serious foodies. I thought about making all sorts of fancy desserts but after watching countless episodes of Top Chef, I know that sometimes people want something simple that takes them back to their childhood. When I found this recipe for s’mores brownies, I knew it was perfect. Too bad Anel and I devoured them like children … Read the post >>

Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

I had some leftover pumpkin from this recipe. I spent some time looking around for another pumpkin dessert recipe that would be totally different from the bread pudding. Originally from this Smitten Kitchen recipe, these brownies with swirls of cinnamony pumpkin were perfect! They’re a great holiday treat, I think I’m going to make them again for my family at Thanksgiving to change it up … Read the post >>
