I know that pumpkin and brown sugar generally take center stage in Thanksgiving desserts, maaaaaaybe something with apples too. None of our littles like pumpkin all that much, as far as I remember I didn’t like it much when I was a kid either. My granny always did Thanksgiving dinner and she always, always made… Continue reading Warm Chocolate Pudding
I’m not going to lie to you here, these are going to take the better part of your afternoon to make – but not all at once. There’s a lot of chilling and rechilling and setting and chilling again. So make sure you make this for someone who will really appreciate it, or someone you’re… Continue reading Homemade Snickers Bars – yes really!
Shortbread cookies, of any variation have a very distinct texture and really nothing else will do when you’re craving shortbread. I’ve tried too many types of shortbread to remember but only baked a few. I’ve made a few different recipes of traditional shortbread recipes, and a few with dried fruits in them (cranberries and cherries,… Continue reading Chocolate Shortbread Cookies
Yes, yes. I know. Another raw vegan recipe. Yes people, it is another raw vegan recipe and it is amazing!

So I will fix that and get those up this week. Instead, I went with Nutella. My girl Sammie made a batch too! Her post on that is… Continue reading Homemade Nutella
Last weekend, four of my dearest friends made the two hour journey (one of them had a 5 hour journey) to my house in the woods to help me celebrate my birthday. Backing up a bit, when I was preparing for my ladies (and Andrew) to come up for the weekend, I naturally went on… Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me!
When I was a kid, I wouldn’t eat anything green – unless it was some form of candy or ice cream. This horrified my then strictly vegan father, a hippie powerhouse of health, which very likely amused my mother, who was a Kraft Dinner loving, late night ice cream eating kinda gal (I say ‘was’… Continue reading Eat Your Fruits and Veggies (and Check Your Oil)
In my efforts to be healthier in general and make better snack choices, I have been skipping cake days occasionally and the domestic goddess in me is outraged. But the slimmer and overall healthier-feeling goddess emerging is totally cool with it. I’m sure there will be enough potlucks and school fetes by year’s end to… Continue reading Chocolate Minis with Peanut Butter Frosting
