Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter

Five-ingredient, naturally sweetened Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter is bringing its creamy decadence!

You know those foods you can eat with vigor for days on end? That’s Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter for me. It’s eat-by-the-spoonful delicious. And it scores bonus points for being a fairly healthful treat! The almonds lend it healthy plant-based fat, while the cinnamon and honey provide antioxidant goodness (especially when raw honey is used).

Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce

Every day is PB&J day with Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce!

Ice cream is an especially tantalizing treat when summer is bringing the heat. And ice cream that is both dairy AND processed-sugar-free? Well, that’s doubly nice. Add the classic complementary flavor combo of peanut-butter-and-jelly, and you’ve REALLY got a winner on your hands!

Apricot-Date Energy Balls

I’m so excited to unveil today’s recipe for Apricot-Date Energy Balls! They are nutrient-dense, ridiculously delicious, processed-sugar-free and gluten-free little beauties! And they are so, so easy to make – just let that food processor or blender do all of the work!

If my seasonal allergies are any indication, spring is OFFICIALLY here! And with spring comes all of the wonderful, glorious outdoor activities that those of us in cold-weather climes miss out on in the winter, so YAYYYY!!!

Ricotta Bacon Date Dip

Ricotta Bacon Date Dip 1

We’ve got a good one today, guys: a Ricotta Bacon Date Dip that is creamy, sweet, and savory all in one! Better yet, it’s a snap to make.

It’s not the time for elaborate meals right now. It’s Big Game weekend here in the U.S. (am I as a lay person not even allowed to use the term “Super Bowl”? I never know.)! Time for beer and wings and nachos, silly TV ads and Gaga’s halftime show, betting games like squares! And football, of course.

For many of us, the football is incidental. I am not a football person. But I like having an excuse to loll on the couch in my sweatpants eating insanely rich foods – like dips!

Garlic Roasted Almonds

Happy Friday, my dears! It’s the W-E-E-K-E-N-D! And to celebrate, today I have this Garlic Roasted Almonds recipe for ya. 🙂

Having a Monday-through-Friday day job in corporate America (for now, at least!) that doesn’t quite vibe with my personal interests, I very much savor the weekend, a.k.a. Real Life, as I call it. During Real Life time, I have the space to do all of the stuff that my heart sings at doing, such as developing recipes for this blog (utilizing the precious daylight that is so scarce this time of  year and oft missed when I’m corralled inside my cubicle), visiting new restaurants with my pals, and dozing off in front of the TV in my fleece sweatpants (seriously one of my fave pastimes. I am not a napper except when it’s dark and I’m in front of a TV). And snacking – lots and lots of unbridled snacking.
