Hi friends! How’s the morning going? I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 

Let’s start off the day with a little chocolate, shall we?

Crunchy almond butter truffles

Crunchy, Creamy, CHOCOLATEY

Just yesterday, I was thinking about how it’s been a while since I made a mind-blowing dessert for the blog. I was like “this has gotta change” and blitzed into the kitchen in a sweets-crazed fury. I knew I wanted it to be something crunchy, creamy, and coated in chocolate. When the fam heard me playing Hamilton without singing along, they knew it was serious business.

And boom. This creation was everything I’d had in mind, and I’m SO PUMPED to share this recipe with you.

Easy Garlic-Lime Salmon

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? Thank you so much for chiming in with your advice about P’s great crib escape. We’re doing the adjusted crib for now, and I’m googling Sleep Sacks like crazy. I thought for sure we wouldn’t have to worry about this for at least another year, but then again, she […]

Raw Apple Tart with Almond Meal Crust

Hi friends! How’s the day going? ’Tis the season for cooking, because I’m going crazy over here. Hope you don’t mind. In this case, though, it’s uncooking. These little beauties are actually totally raw, vegan, free of refined sugar, and totally delicious.

Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a wonderful week. P’s 8-month update is up on the Family page here. Yesterday was one of those wild and crazy days. I felt like I was running around constantly until teaching hot barre last night. I thought last night was my first night teaching Cardio […]

Vegas eats

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Hope you’re enjoying the day and had a great weekend! We got to enjoy a little Vegas getaway with our friends Betsy and Jeremy. Betsy and I had both talked about going to the Pac-12 tournament for a while since we all love basketball, so a couple of months […]

Healthy Strawberry Crumble with Coconut Whip

Do I have a spring recipe for youuuuuuu. We have had an awesome week so far, despite the fact that P is spitting up probably more than she’s ever been and Liv is insistent on waking me up in the middle of the night because she lost a toy. MADRE IS HERE! Something about having […]

Chocolate protein donuts

Hi friends! How’s the day going? It was a miracle of happiness when all of the girl slept in until 8am this morning. I woke up and was like, “Where am I? What just happened?!” and it was probably the most beautiful thing ever. Needless to say, I think we were all a little zonked […]

Naughty Cocoa

A little something from the naughty list…. with NICE ingredients. 😉 Ok, and an excuse to use our Elf on the Shelf as a prop. (Anyone else majorly slacking with the Elf on a Shelf this year? Just know that once you do it, you have to commit to it. Forever. I swim in regrets.) […]

The Crazy Elvis

(grain-free, dairy-free and INSANELY delicious) You guys. I can’t even tell you about this dessert. You just have to look. And see.  And taste. And make any sound effects that you so desire. I first got the idea for this recipe at The Patio on Lamont. It’s one of our favorite spots to meet with […]

Soft and Healthy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes you just need a cookie. (or four…) I was really hankering for cookies the other night, and since my little sous chef is always willing to help me bake, I thought it would be fun to sneak off to the kitchen to make some cookies.  As far as the cookies go, I’ll let the […]
