So, avocados. I’m going to let you in on a little secret and I seriously hope we can still be friends. Up until 3 weeks ago I have never had anything containing avocados. No guacamole, yummy salads or whatever else you make with those green things. I know! I understand you might be in complete shock and quite possibly are reexamining this internet relationship thingy we’ve got going on here.

I honestly don’t know what took me so long. Salads and veggies are one of my favorite things, but for reasons that are even a mystery to me, I just couldn’t get myself to try avocados.

And then my SIL, Rachel, came over and took me to Chipotle (also my first time). We ended up sharing a bowl and there was no escaping the guacamole train.

My world hasn’t been the same since. I keep buying avocados. And what happens when you’ve gone a little overboard and accidentally amassed an undisclosed amount of avocados? You make Dark Chocolate Mocha Avocado Mousse, of course! [Read more…]

So I may have mentioned here and there that breakfast isn’t really my thing. I’ve always been much more of a grazer than a person who eats 3 meals each day. The only “real” meal I consume is at dinner time when my hubby and I get to sit down together.

I like eating small portions whenever I get hungry and that usually starts somewhere around 10 AM or so. One of the many reasons why I love brunches so much; whoever invented those definitely had me in mind, ha.

Even though muffins aren’t the first thing that most of us think about when it comes to brunch, it wouldn’t be complete without them either.

Since some of the brunch food can be a bit on the heavy side, I thought I would lighten it up with a healthy muffin that only takes a couple of ingredients and a few minutes to prepare. [Read more…]

Trio of Mini Cheesecakes (Dairy-Free)

No-bake Mini Cheesecakes made without dairy. This recipe features a classic graham cracker crust, has the most amazing “cream cheese” filling and is finished with three wonderful toppings.

A couple of weeks ago I challenged myself to find a recipe for dairy-free cheesecake. I probably mentioned before that my husband has developed an intolerance against lactose. Recipes that contain small amounts of butter or even chocolate, usually go over fine. I have found that substituting almond milk for regular milk works extremely well in most recipes, too.

But I was sort of stumped when it came to cream cheese and had made a mental note that cheesecake would probably not be in our future again. But since I like a challenge and don’t give up easily, I changed my mind and was determined to figure this one out.

Also, I wowed that I would never put anything on this little blog of mine if it didn’t taste absolutely delicious. Good thing I live with one of the most amazing food critics. Adam is somewhat of a picky eater and yes, sneaking in vegetables and other “weird” things has become part of my regular routine, ha.

To be completely honest, I was worried about having him taste-test this one. I thought these mini cheesecakes tasted amazing, but there’s always the bias factor… so I finally handed him one of these little cakes. [Read more…]

Let me introduce you to my new favorite snack. Favorite may be an understatement. Every day for the past four days after returning home from work, I immediately open the fridge and pull out 3 to 4 of these amazing bites. I am practically drawn to them after thinking about these for most of the day. I just can’t help it.

I may have created the best no-bake snack to ever come out of my kitchen. And I am not exaggerating.

As I set out on creating a little afternoon snack, I wasn’t going for anything brownie related. I simply started adding ingredients I thought would go well together and once I gave it a taste, all I could think of was fudge brownies. Rich, chocolaty and extremely addicting! [Read more…]
