What are some things I love Mexican food Black beans Men who can dance Cilantro Avocados Cashews Fresh Food American Football Blueberries My cat I can’t have everything…but I do strive.

Mocha Fudge Bars

Mocha Fudge Bars

For some reason, I’ve always been TERRIBLE at baking brownies…but I thought that maybe I could make a brownie that didn’t include flour and I’d be a winner. I dreamed of a mocha flavoured gooey brownie..or something along those lines. I was skeptical when I saw what I concocted in the food processor. I was … Continue reading

Sunday Favourites

Hey everyone!!! Hope that you’re doing really well. I guess that I’ve decided that I’m gonna be taking off the weekends from officially cooking. Our gardens are so full of weeds, our lawn hasn’t been mowed in two months..and we have no milk (lactose free)…we’re in a state. But there are some blogs/recipes…that I read … Continue reading

Cashew Choc Chip Cookies

Cashew Choc Chip Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies. Who doesn’t? I have a chocolate chip recipe that uses so much butter and sugar that you could drown in it…they’re also really good. But in an effort to replace some of the old hats with new ones, I’ve twisted the recipe around and threw cashews and oats in. Stay … Continue reading

Punkin’ Pie

Punkin’ Pie

I preface this recipe with IT’S NOT gluten or dairy or refined sugar free. It’s got all the above and it tastes divine. I didn’t know if I should even post this recipe, because it kinda goes against the premise of the blog and cooking food my body likes. My body doesn’t really do well … Continue reading

Dark Chocolate Chewy Balls

Dark Chocolate Chewy Balls

Blame it on the hormones of a woman..but chocolate and peanuts are fabulous together. There really isn’t much to say about these chewy balls, except that they’re great, have healthy stuff in them, and grown-men will eat them..including my man who hates dark chocolate. Dark Chocolate Chewy Balls ~12 balls 1.5 c. raw, unsalted, peanuts … Continue reading

Sweet n’ Sour Chicken & Cabbage Soup

Sweet n’ Sour Chicken & Cabbage Soup

Chicken and cabbage?????!?!?!? YUCK! Well, my lovelies, I’ve twisted this around and I have made a soup that I CRAVE. In fact, I’m making it now as we speak..or as I write. I think that sometimes it’s good to give your body a dose of veggies, chicken and a kick of spice. This is a … Continue reading

Chocolate & Pear Cake…and best frosting…

Chocolate & Pear Cake…and best frosting…

I love LOVE LOOOOVVVEEE dipping graham crackers in Betty Crocker Frosting. In fact, whenever I go home I’m instantly overwhelmed with the baking aisle of my local Safeway…because there are so many tubs of icing/frosting there. They’re also pack full of crud, nasty stuff that no one should really be eating all the time (sometimes, … Continue reading

Not Your Typical PB Cookies

Not Your Typical PB Cookies

I love PB cookies. The best part is the criss-cross stamp in the middle of them.  I love the gooey centre and the taste of peanut butter…maybe that taps into my inner-American..I’m not sure. Anyways, here’s my twist on PB cookies that I’ve made with some omega-3s thrown in and some PB as well… Not … Continue reading

Lamb or Tofu Maple Mustard Skewers

Lamb or Tofu Maple Mustard Skewers

Growing up in America..I didn’t eat a lot of lamb. However, ever since I’ve moved to Australia…I eat lamb often. It’s an interesting meat that not everyone likes, but it’s so yummy. If you’re not into the meat thing, then subsitute firm tofu instead. I did this with this recipe and it was awesome! Lamb … Continue reading
