Valentine’s Day Peanut Butter Blondies

I basically live my life like a 7 year old.  From holiday to holiday.  It’s constantly in the back of my mind. “Which holiday is next?” I decorate for all of them.  I basically take down my Christmas decor and replace it with Valentine’s Day.  Which I replace with St. Patrick’s Day. Which I replace… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Peanut Butter Blondies

Zucchini Brownies

This weekend I ate my weight in zucchini brownies. I threw them together on Friday night.  I just had a craving for chocolate and these… Continue reading Zucchini Brownies

In other words: 30 days of torture. That said, we had amazing results in our health and our waistlines,… Continue reading 5 Ingredient, 5 Minute: Primal Fudge

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

My future sister-in-law, Lexie, sent me this recipe on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago, with the message “I want this.”  When I went and looked at the recipe, I had to agree- I wanted this too. Chocolate and banana bread aren’t two things that I would have thought would be too terribly great together,… Continue reading Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Chocolate Sour Cream Cake

Somehow, my baby boy turned 3 last weekend.  I gave birth to him, and then I blinked, and here we are. Charlie’s favorite thing in the entire world is chocolate.  He would choose chocolate over anything, including puppies, Disneyland, and Paw Patrol.  It is his very favorite thing.  When I asked him what kind of… Continue reading Chocolate Sour Cream Cake
