Butter Bunnies Stacked

White Chocolate Butter Bunny Bites

Okie, so I may have fibbed just a teensy bit about these White Chocolate Butter Bunnies. These actually aren’t made of white chocolate (gasp!). BUT they do taste EXACTLY like it with an added coconutty twist for extra awesomeness.

You know I actually had a completely different plan in mind for my Easter recipe this season? I was planning to make coconut macaroons that would look like bunny tales but as I did some idea hunting on Pinterest after about 50 pins these finally formulated in my mind. I do have to extend some credit to our friends over at Coconut Mama and Empowered Sustenance for providing their inspirational recipes as the base to these White Chocolate Butter Bunnies. I <3 the internet, don’t you!

Easter is 2 days away and you’re probably making a mental checklist of ALL the stuff you need to get done before then so without further ado let’s get to it, shall we?READ MORE

Paleo Hamantaschen for Purim

When I was a little girl Purim was my favorite holiday so naturally hamantaschen were my favorite thing to eat on that holiday.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Purim let me give you a little background so you don’t feel lost the whole way through this post 😉 Purim is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the courage of a very special woman named Esther and, of course, the Jewish people escaping total annihilation. As a kid, hearing this story was awesome because it’s got all of the components of an epic tale à la LOTR or Camelot: kings, romance, royals getting banished, a wise elder (who looks strangely Gandolf-like in all the picture books), a pauperess-turned-queen, acts of immeasurable bravery, a bad guy who gets hanged, plus it takes place in a far away land (The Persian Empire)! What’s not to love?!

Purple Potato & Cauliflower Colcannon

I was doing some research for recipe ideas so that I could come up with something really special this year for St. Patrick’s Day. Last year I did a really great Green Juice but still, I wanted to come up with something new for us. Ya see, although I’m not Irish, St. Patrick’s Day just so happens to be my Grandma’s birthday. Sadly, she’s no longer around to read the annual dedication post + recipe I write for her but I love St. Patty’s Day all the more because of her and always celebrate it!

Raw Paleo Granola

Raw Bowl’a Paleo Granola

Aaaah the Raw Bowl’a Paleo Granola. Has such a nice ring to it, don’t it? Well there’s more to it than that, actually. Did you know that…

When I’m feeling like lazy bum in the morning, my #1 go-to is THIS recipe? 

Why? Because this – every now and then, I get up in the morning, and I feel just sooo incredibly lazy. It’s like, I just can’t even muster the 60 seconds of effort it takes to grab a pan, turn on the stove, and dump in some coconut oil. It’s true! 

Last Monday was one of those days.

TGI Cornbread Recipe

So, I recently started up a Facebook group, in which we’ve started discussing the topic of the beginning of the “holiday stress period” i.e. The period in which we fret about gaining weight from things like:

  • The extra tastes we unconsciously graze on as we stroll through the grocery store
  • The basket of holiday cookies so thoughtfully given to us by our loved ones over which we feel guilted into eating a few…which in turn (and unbeknownst to our subconscious) morphs into devouring the entire thing
  • The surge in Cortisol from stressing about keeping our sh** together and avoiding food-and-life-shaming from the crowd of (sometimes-judgmental) 20+ people for which we’re preparing to host a gigantic holiday meal & party
  • And, probably lots more…

And then, I asked my people the following:READ MORE

Cacao Sesame Butter Cups Recipe

Wanna know something odd? When I was a kid, I thought…

Adults Never Ate Candy

My parents didn’t eat candy. Like, AT ALL. They ate the occasional square of dark chocolate here and there, but no M&M’s, Skittles, Sour Patch, Ring Pops or Snickers ever crossed their lips. So…I assumed that adults didn’t eat candy.

Until, of course, I was about four years old and I could consciously remember seeing other adults dive for my pillow-cover-trick-or-treat bag to steal it. It was then that I realized I had it wrong. Go figure…READ MORE
