Campfire Cookies

May 26, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

  I’ll let you guys in on a little secret. I’m a big fan of marshmallows. I know vegetarians aren’t supposed to say such things, but it’s true. I just can’t help myself. Of course, I use vegan marshmallows when I can find them or sub in marshmallow fluff whenever I get a craving for [...]

Vegan Chocolate Milkshake

May 22, 2011 Breakfast

    Cue the sexy music. Because this milkshake is smokin’ hot. Actually, that’s not right at all. It’s ice cold. It’s also creamy, thick, and super chocolatey. And it’s exactly what I’ve been craving as the summer approaches. Inspired by my first attempt at vegan chocolate pudding, I decided to satisfy my summer milkshake craving [...]

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

May 10, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

The other day I came home from work and I wanted a cookie. Badly. And I wanted a really decadent, super unhealthy, super chocolaty one that would make me lapse into a sugar coma for hours so I wouldn’t feel guilty about watching nonstop episodes of Arrested Development (I have a bit of an obsession [...]

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Pudding and a Product Review

May 9, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

  Knowing my penchant for coconut oil, the very nice folks at Kelapo sent me a jar of their coconut oil to sample and review. They were kind enough to send a few original recipe cards for inspiration, including a recipe for pie crust and an apple pie smoothie, but in the end I went [...]

Muffin Top Challenge

April 19, 2011 Breakfast

I know what you’re thinking.   It has nothing to do with that. Let me explain. My sister called me up a few weeks ago and told me she tried VitaTops Muffins. She liked them, but said they were pricey and asked me to create a homemade version that was just as tasty but easier [...]

Rainy Day Peanut Butter Bites

April 9, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

Lately, my Mom calls nearly everyday to tell me about the weather in Reno (where she lives).  She’s all “Hi, honey you won’t believe the weather here in Reno, it’s 30 degrees and snowing!” She say it just like that, all in one breath. I usually can’t stand talking about the weather. I mean, shouldn’t [...]

White Chocolate Kissed Peanut Butter Balls

February 18, 2011 Breakfast

  These are my new favorite snack. They’re a riff off my coveted peanut butter power bombs that I like to munch on before/after hitting the gym and sometimes even for a quick breakfast. The old version is classic, but the white chocolate takes it to a whole new level. I used my favorite white [...]

Marshmallow Fluff Cupcakes

February 12, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

Lately, I’ve had a serious hankering for marshmallow. Um, not exactly. More like this. This weekend calls for marshmallow fluff cupcakes. After all, it’s Valentine’s Day.   I started with a box mix of devil’s food cake. Using a box mix saved time, allowing me to concentrate on the icing.    For the icing, you’ll [...]

Salted Chocolate and Sour Cream Cake

February 6, 2011 Desserts and Sweets

I was chatting with my sister (Miss Sassy Pants) this weekend and she complained that I had too many dessert recipes on my blog for it being a “health food” blog.  I disagreed and, in fact, noticed that it had been a good while since I posted something sweet. I know I’ve said before that [...]
