Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

My daughter and I regularly test out new ways to satisfy our chocolate cravings without a ton of sugar. Not an easy task, but not impossible either. We think the trick is to focus on great ingredients that you feel good about using instead of fixating on the things you cannot have. These chocolatey muffins… continue reading »

Pear Crisp Smoothie

Committing yourself to healthier eating shouldn’t leave you feeling deprived. It’s just about choosing alternatives that are better for you. Desserts call my name from time to time. Sometimes, I can easily ignore their calls, but there are those moments where playing hard-to-get just isn’t working. So, that’s kind of how I got started turning… continue reading »

Gingerbread Smoothie

Preparing for the holidays and keeping up with work have gotten the best of me. How do the days get away from us so quickly? I start each day with a completely unrealistic list of “To Do’s” then feel surprisingly baffled by how they didn’t all get done. Sigh. If you’re feeling the same way…first,… continue reading »

Almond Joy Smoothie

I’ve eliminated all added sugar from my diet for the past month and I’ve never felt better. Once you get past the first few days, your cravings really do subside. The thing is, Halloween happened. And there’s that one candy that I think every parent steals from their kid’s stash…Almond Joy. Sigh. I love those… continue reading »

Sesame Tahini Cookies

There’s a part of every day where I need stop everything and take a breath or two. It’s usually in the late afternoon when I crave a cup of coffee or tea and just a little something. These cookies are one of my most favorite. I’m all for ooey-gooey cookies with chocolate and cream fillings,… continue reading »

Coconut Almond Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

There’s a wonderful new creamery that’s opened up in our town. If keeping my waistline in check wasn’t an issue, I’d be there every night. And I’d probably order their Coconut Almond Chocolate Chip…every night. But, since it’s bathing suit season and well, that always scares me to pieces, I decided to create my own… continue reading »
