Ghost Pops (or Sunbutter Drops)

Naming these bad boys was a greater challenge than making them. My sister gave me a hand, with her customary hilarity: “Sunbutter balls does not sound good.

One Minute Recipes: Strawberry Coconut Freeze

Simple food is best. I think one of the biggest impediments to eating real, whole foods is that people are afraid of the kitchen & cooking. Sometimes I eat things that I want to share with you, but then feel silly because they are too simple to call a “recipe”. But since I’m really into […]

I wanted to come up with a fancy name for these, but then I figured it would just be better to tell you like it is, even if the name is long. My friend asked me how I came up with this dessert idea, and I told her the following. I had recieved an orange […]

I’ve come to the conclusion that people like your blog more when there is dessert. This is slightly sad for someone who spends most of their time avoiding sugar and whose normal dessert is half a roasted sweet potato. BUT, once a week I enjoy some chocolate pudding. Three ingredients, no fuss, pure, velvety, smooth […]

Crockpot Magic

I’m not a recipe developer. If I had endless time and an army to feed (also known as living with my immediate family again), then I could spend weeks creating the same recipe and tweaking it to my needs. The reality is that I live alone and I have a day job. So I only […]

Fast, Easy, Indian Summer Meal Ideas

Hi friends! I really hope Indian Summer is PC, because I’ve always liked that term. To me it speaks of the golden days of September, where summer’s warmth still lingers but also holds the promise of the comforts of fall. It reminds me of picking wildflowers at my grandparents’ house and coming home from the […]

Last Sunday, when I made 12 sweet potato truffles and ate all 12 in the space of six hours, also in the middle of writing Tuesday’s giveaway post, I fully intended to post the truffle recipe today.
