Dairy-Free Chocolate Pecan Fudge

Dairy-Free Chocolate Pecan Fudge

This recipe didn’t go how I planned at all, but the results are delicious! I planned to make a layered dairy-free chocolate pecan toffee inspired by a YouTube video. The final step, where the chocolate chips are added, didn’t work. There wasn’t enough heat to […]

Grain-Free Maple Butter Brownies

Happy New Year! Happy Birthday to this blog (7 years old!), and Happy Birthday to ME! I woke up to the smell of bacon today, so I knew it was going to be an awesome birthday. As much as I love to cook, it’s really […]

Party Food—Return of the Gluten-Free Chocolate Coconut Cake

  I went to a barbeque recently and decided to take a gluten-free dessert. Chocolate makes a lot of people happy, so I took my Gluten-Free Chocolate Coconut Cake. It was my first time taking a grain-free Paleo dessert, so I was a bit nervous […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Coconut Cake

Gluten-Free Chocolate Coconut Cake
