No Bake Brownies

The brownie universe isn’t exactly full of surprises.

Of course, the resulting degree of deliciousness is all in the details — just talk to the adamant nut-adders, the chocolate chip enthusiasts, or the “fudgy” versus “cakey” people that can seemingly never agree. Yet, by and… Continue

Green Mango Dessert Smoothie

This is a tale of a treat with an identity crisis. Technically, it's a smoothie because it

A) is made in a blender

B) has fruit

C) includes a little nutrient-rich protein powder

D) is kinda an ugly green color (a non-essential but frequent result of smoothie making).

Yet there's something about this blend, with its thick frosty creamy mangos and sweetly inviting flavor that makes it… Continue

Sneaky Secrets To Making Energy-Packed Fruit Tarts

A wise man once said, “Good things come to those who wait.” Yeah well, clearly he wasn’t having a dessert craving.

Making good, healthy desserts doesn’t have to steal away an afternoon of baking (or 12 hours waiting on a dehydrator). One of my favorite desserts - beautiful, fresh fruit energy tarts - take just 10 minutes start-to-finish. Thanks to using simple healthy substitutions and time-saving tricks, these tarts emanate big… Continue

New Recipe: Acai Fudge

I had every intention of going for a run this afternoon. Got my tank and shorts on, tied up my shoelaces, cued up my stopwatch. But a great idea is not always on schedule, and right as I took a step outside the front door, it hit me: Acai fudge. Wow. I bet I could make a killer acai fudge.

Now, I may be young, but I’m wise enough to know that some things in life must not be kept waiting. Things, that is, such as a really great… Continue

Ah yes, that makes sense. I've made a similar sauce in the past using capers. Olives, capers, anchovies and I guess dulse all add a load of taste to a sauce.

I forgot aobut that cake. That was really good... Quite moist. No worries if you don't have the recipe. I tried making a version of it from memory but it bombed... I'm not really a desert person. I tend to create on the fly with recipes and you can't do that as much with deserts because amounts need to be exact.
