• Dark Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

    A Very Healthy Valentine’s Day Treat I love Valentine’s Day. I know it’s cheesy and mushy and a “hallmark holiday,” but I don’t care – I freaking love it. It’s a day to think about love, talk about love, and celebrate those who make you happy. All things that I think more of us should do. There’s just something special about…

  • Grain Free Chocolate Chunk Cookies

    Fudgey Chocolate Chunk Cookies I have to be honest, we ate this entire batch of cookies within 24 hours Yup, we did it, we ate ten cookies in a matter of twenty-four hours. It was more like eighteen hours and twelve cookies, but really, who’s counting? These grain-free chocolate chunk cookies are (were) that good. They were better than any grain…

  • Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

    It’s Pumpkin Season & I’m Fully Embracing It As a little girl, I dreamed of becoming.. a lawyer.

The whole princess thing was…

  • Dark Chocolate Avocado Fudge

    It’s like a healthy dream come true This is a late post and a short recipe because holy school.

  • Chocolate Chunk “Golden Milk” Cookies

    My Northeast Ohio hometown is roughly 50 miles from Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and anything in-beween. As much as I love taking trips to Pittsburgh and often times Cleveland, driving an hour just to do some grocery shopping isn’t necessarily the most efficient thing in the world. Lucky for us, many brands that originated in Whole Foods are actually being…

  • Creamy Raspberry Cashew Cups

      The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. Not only does it land in the heart of summer, but I also love that we get to celebrate our country and freedom with some good old fashion barbecue, fireworks, and surrounded by people that mean the most. With the holiday weekend/week quickly approaching, I thought I…

    Salty, Sweet, and So Healthy! It’s those mid-week sugar cravings that get me every time. And believe me, I’m human, I do give into them!

  • Chunky Dark Chocolate PB Cups

    The Healthiest Peanut Butter Cup Yet Packed with Protein, Healthy Fats, and Antioxidants I love Reese’s cups. And better yet, I love frozen Reese’s cups.
