Game Changing Chocolate

Call me Granny. It’s 8:23 and I’m in bed. This could be really bad for my social life. (ha-my social life.) Anyway, Celine turned one! Hip Hip! We had an ‘Under the Sea’ party for her and boy, did she love it!  Initially she was a little bewildered by all of the people, lanterns, blue and yellowRead more

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Two weeks ago, my sugar/chocolate addiction pushed it’s limits. I had to get rid of it and since going ‘cold turkey’ has never been an effective measure to get off something ‘for good’, I knew I had to ‘add in’ a bunch of ‘good stuff’ to forgo ‘the bad stuff’.

I’d never had baked oatmeal until I tried theirRead more

Chia Yogurt Cup with Fruit and Honey Drizzle

One of my favorite snacks of all time comes from my travels to Athens, Greece. Greece is often known for it’s love of yogurt (hence, ‘Greek Yogurt’). If you don’t have an issue with dairy then I would suggest ‘Fage Greek Yogurt’ otherwise I use Almond Yogurt.  I’ll have this as for dessert, snack, orRead more
