Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

This year I made my own birthday cake. How else are you supposed to get exactly the cake you want if you don’t make it yourself? Having returned from Puerto Rico that week, I wanted to keep up with the vegan deliciousness. Also, after eating so many whole foods and no processed sugar, cake and … Continue reading Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Chocolate Microwave Mugcake

            This is what you make when you get to the end of a meal and aren’t quite satisfied yet. It’s perfect because it’s quick, easy, customizable, and single serving. All you need is a mug, a microwave, a few basic ingredients, and some creativity. This is a fairly basic … Continue reading Chocolate Microwave Mugcake

Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Happy belated Pi Day and happy early St. Patrick’s Day!

Dark chocolate and … Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

But that means plenty of time to cook! Just in case you didn’t get enough chocolate in yesterday, here is one more recipe. But paleo … Continue reading Black Bean Molten Lava Cakes

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

I thought it would be good to start off with a photo of these, just to show that they look (and taste!) good even though the ingredients might suggest otherwise... I wasn’t necessarily looking for a vegan recipe when I came across the idea for these cookies, but when I saw that they were healthy … Continue reading Chocolate Avocado Cookies
