Coconut Cream Fruit Tart

This recipe has been in the works in my head for quite a while. I have always loved looking at fruit tarts in the grocery store and bakery, but they are such a disappointment whenever I actually try them. I don't much care for pastry crust or custard, which already kills two thirds of it. Good … Continue reading Coconut Cream Fruit Tart

Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Happy belated Pi Day and happy early St. Patrick’s Day! I never really got too excited about either holiday on its own, as I didn’t even realize Pi Day was a holiday until a few years ago, and I am exactly 0% Irish. However, when you combine the two days, you get a celebration of … Continue reading Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

So when I said I ate pie for dessert and snack and breakfast, I actually ate BOTH pies… I tried so hard to figure out which one I liked better, and I really couldn't. Dark chocolate and … Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie

Tastes absolutely amazing but has a toasted almond crust, uses coconut cream in the filling and is topped with berries, meaning it is 100% gluten and refined sugar free. I … Continue reading Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie

Morning Glory Oatmeal

This could also be called "how to eat carrot cake for breakfast." All the flavors of carrot cake but without any of the extra fat (sorry no cream cheese frosting on this one) and sugar. I love carrot cake and still do, but I remember being a little surprised after reading the recipe the first time. … Continue reading Morning Glory Oatmeal

Peach Perfect

Summer seems to be sticking around a little bit longer in Boston, but I’m certainly not complaining! After a pretty sweltering few days, Sunday was the perfect temperature. Perfect for a picnic on the esplanade, looking out at the sailboats on the Charles River. And because picnics involve food, obviously this was a perfect occasion … Continue reading Peach Perfect

Chocolate Almond Clif Bars

If you had showed me this recipe for homemade Clif Bars last year at this time, it would have probably saved me hundreds of store-bought energy bars. If I had found it a year and three months ago, maybe even close to one thousand. Unfortunately, that’s not much of an exaggeration. Like many endurance athletes, I … Continue reading Chocolate Almond Clif Bars
