Chia Pomegranate Pudding

As you know from some of the other recipes I’ve posted (like these truffles, these peanut butter cookies, or these coconut energy bars), I sometimes don’t like to turn the oven on.  Call it lazy if you want, I call it being energy conservative and helping the environment.  So this recipe was just my thing.  […]

Pumpkin Donuts

I bought this  Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan a few weeks ago and was super excited to make some delicious homemade donuts.  Well, my first 2 attempts were epic fails.  But, not one to be discouraged, I tried again….and was successful!  It’s probably a stretch to say these are healthy but they are healthier than […]

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I seem to always have lemons around lately for some reason.  They just seem so perfect to squeeze some lemon juice over salmon or into salsa.  But after a trip to the grocery store and finding some beautiful organic blueberries, I knew I had to make some lemon blueberry muffins.  I actually baked several different […]
