No Bake Frosted Brownies

After making a couple other no bake desserts, I decided that I loved them and there was no reason to ever turn my oven on again.  So maybe that’s stretching it a bit, but I do love that I only have to throw a few ingredients into my Ninja and out comes some deliciousness that […]

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.  […]

Cinnamon Baked Apples

We got a bunch of apples in our co-op basket this week.  I do love apples but I wasn’t quite sure what to do with all of them.  I took some for snacks at work and “encouraged” my family to eat them.  But we still had a bunch.  I’m not big on applesauce so that […]

Coconut Energy Bars

Pumpkin Donuts

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I’m a big fan of chocolate.  But who’s not, right?!?  Ok, so I know a few of you don’t like chocolate so these muffins may not be for you.  But if you do like chocolate, this is a delicious way to get […]

No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies have to be the easiest cookies that I’ve ever made!  As you all know, I’m somewhat of a lazy cook.  I just don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, especially when a snack craving hits.  So when I can have a healthy dessert and it takes no effort, I’m […]
