The Very Best Grain-Free, Gluten-Free Paleo Brownies

Almond-Butter Brownies

If you know me, you should know that I am crazy about chocolate. In fact, I eat one of these brownies (or 2-3 of them) per day. They are HEATHER APPROVED. Not only that, but everyone we’ve shared them with asks for the recipe… which is why I’m putting it here. I can now just […]

I can see the future. ESP, I tell you. Here’s what I know: You are going to thank me for this 4-ingredient recipe. People at your next potluck or party are going to thank YOU. Your kids might nominate you for mom of the year, even. If you love peanut-butter, and are trying to stay […]

Who Said Truffles Had To Be Round?


Twas the night before Christmas (or the week before in my case),when a fellow cashier and I were standing around at our registers wondering where all the yuletide shoppers were.
