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 […]

Single Serving Protein Powder-free Protein Pancake

Single Serving Protein Powder-free Protein Pancake

I like the concept of protein powders and making protein pancakes from them, but I can’t find a protein powder that I think tastes good. Thanks to almost 3 years Paleo, my taste for sweet isn’t what it used to be (I count that as […]

Chocolate-Covered Apricots

Chocolate-Covered Apricots

I’ve gotten behind on my cooking posts because I have been working a lot lately. This recipe is one of the treats I made for Valentine’s day! After working so much, it was nice to do some assembly line work making these treats. I love […]

Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

It’s taken a lot of trial and error to learn how to bake using non-grain flours, however with my latest trial of blueberry muffins I can see how far I’ve come in my baking. When I first tried to use coconut flour for muffins, they […]

Whole 30 Day 14

Last night I listened to my body when it said “go to bed early,” so I woke up feeling really refreshed this morning. It was exactly what I needed. I was pretty hungry for breakfast, too, so I made a nice big meal of 2 […]

Whole 30 Day 11

Whole 30 Day 11

 For breakfast this morning, I chopped up one of my leftover mini hamburgers and mixed it into two scrambled eggs. I topped it with pico de gallo and had a little homemade applesauce on the side. Of course I had some black coffee to get […]

Whole 30 Day 10

Whole 30 Day 10

I’m officially one-third of the way through Whole 30! This morning I woke up well before my normal alarm clock would go off. There’s something about waking up on your own that really sets you up for a good day. I had a big breakfast […]
