Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Bars

Is there any better combo than nut butter and chocolate? I think nut. I’m a HUGE choco + peanut butter fan, but I thought I’d switch it up today and choose a slightly healthier nut butter to create a slightly less-healthy dessert. Balance. These bars have a thick shortbread-type bottom layer, a crunchy and sweet…

Vegan Power Muffins

Who said muffin tops were bad? Embrace those bulges with these healthier POWER muffs! All the yum, none of the guilt. I LOVE muffins. Love, love, love them. But I’m always finding myself feeling bad after eating them, which is so silly. A girl can’t eat a muffin in the 21st century anymore without feeling…

Tropical Banana Flambé

Ayyyeeee! It’s gettin’ caliente in here, beaches!! Let’s take a trip to the Caribbean! Okay, nevermind, Rona’s still stomping on our parades, so, let’s bring the Caribbean to us. Grab your piñas and your lighters and let’s set fuego to this *****…Whattt?! I meant “house.” This recipe is inspired by one of my sweet besties….

Oatmeal Earl Grey and Lavender Sandwich Cookies

Okay, okay, I can only take credit for half of this recipe. The other half – the Earl Grey Lavender London Fog Gelato – is made by my favourite CANADIAN company – Righteous Gelato. This stuff is GOLD, so why not sandwich it between two cookies?! YUM. I’ve always loved baking, but as we all…

Chocolate Hummus

I’m shook. One week ago, this was not a food I had ever heard of, and let me tell you…I know most foods. My coworker had asked me if I had ever tried “chocolate hummus,” and the answer was “no” but that I “definitely needed to.” I asked him what was in it, and he…

Simple Corn Salsa

What do you do when corn is in season, it costs $1.88 for 10 cobs and you only cook for one? Buy all 10, eat as many as you can and then use the rest for salsa. Hells yeah. There is nothing untrue about the statement above. Salsa is perfect for leftover corn. It’s also…

S’more Cups

We are having fun today, folks! I’ve turned the classic s’more dessert into an easy-to-eat treat where you still get the pleasure of toasting the marshmallows! The perfect summer make-ahead dessert. Memories of s’mores by the fire are the best memories. Trying to get your ‘mallow perfectly toasted to your liking, and then fanangling it…

Peanut Butter and Jam Cups

My 100th Instagram post (@nevernoteatingca) had to be something chocolate…The best food group. I recently posted a Strawberry Rhubarb Jam recipe, and since then have been trying to find different ways of incorporating it into a variety of different dishes. Since peanut butter is jam’s homeboy, I thought, why not add it to my classic…

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

It’s strawberry pickin’ time, y’all! I went out this weekend and grabbed a good-sized basket of them, so you know the next few recipes are going to be strawberry based! Naturally, I picked way more than is okay for one person to eat, but that just means JAM. Jammy, jam-jam. Rhubarb strawberry jam! Growing up,…
