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

Life After Puerto Rico…

Yes life goes on after getting back from an amazing vacation. It's always a sad first few days back in the real world! It’s been far too long since I’ve been posting regularly on the blog… I sit here right now after my first full day of having no real plans since moving into my … Continue reading Life After Puerto Rico…

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!

However, when you combine the two days, you get a celebration of … Continue reading Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

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

Black Bean Molten Lava Cakes

Happy belated Valentine’s Day! I sit here snowed in again, this time by a blizzard with type 2 hurricane winds. A blizzicane? Trains are cancelled, coffee shop closed, traveling discouraged. 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
