I spend a lot of time cooking and baking in my kitchen, so that means there's a lot of time spent cleaning the kitchen. So anytime I can find multiple ways to use an item, I'm thrilled to keep using it over and over instead of continuing to get out or buy new things, d...

When you need a little afternoon snack to tide you over to dinner, this almond butter freezer fudge has been my recent go-to snack. Lately I've been whipping up batches of it to have on hand as I like that keeping it in the freezer not only means it takes a little whil...

Last weekend I wanted to whip up a festive but healthy holiday treat. There's enough Christmas cookies and egg nog lattes this time of year to give me a month-long stomachache, so I wanted to come up with something a little more clean, but still tasty. Turns out, a few...

Once the Thanksgiving food coma has subsided, I plan to keep some extra healthy treats on hand at home. I tried my first black bean brownie a few years back and was surprised at how fudgey and 'real' they tasted. When I found this recipe that added...
