This spicy chocolate latte from Savory Simple will warm you up when it's chilly outside! This vegan latte uses almond milk, but regular milk may be substituted.

It seems like every year there’s one month where I find myself traveling to multiple work events. I’m right in the middle of that hectic time right now. I’ve been home from a visit to Seattle for just two days and in another two days I’m headed to Pennsylvania. It’s tiring but I’m enjoying catching up with old friends and acquaintances. The more I do this, the harder it is to be away. I’d always rather be at home with Jeff and our special needs cat.

These decadent Chocolate Cherry Pancakes are thick, fluffy, and perfect for summer brunch.

My energy level has always fluctuated dramatically. It evens out slightly when I cut sugar and grains from my diet but never completely normalizes. I think in my case it’s more an issue of brain chemistry than blood sugar (though it can definitely be a combination of both). It’s a good thing I managed to get slightly ahead before the holiday weekend because so far I am a complete zombie this week.

Macerated Cherry Nutella Pop Tarts are pretty much everything you want in a dessert: flaky pastry, creamy chocolate and a boozy fruit filling!

I love adding liqueurs to desserts and savory dishes. Grand Marnier is one of my favorites. It adds a delicate hint of orange that brightens everything from pan sauces to buttercream frosting. And I especially love using it to macerate fruit.  [Read more...]

Is it breakfast or dessert? This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is both!

I don’t consider myself to be a writer. It’s kind of weird because I actually have a bachelors degree in English with a focus in creative writing. But I feel like that was in another life 15 years ago that I barely connect with anymore. I’m no longer the same person. I followed that path because I had no idea what to do with my life and an English teacher told me I had talent. I never loved writing. I was never meant to be a writer. [Read more...]

This decadent Chocolate Mousse Poached Pear Tart is the perfect ending to a romantic meal!

I love rich, velvety, dark chocolate mousse. It’s one of those decadent treats I would enjoy every day if I could (though I don’t because that wouldn’t exactly be healthy). Chocolate mousse is for special occasions and it’s the perfect foundation for a Valentine’s Day dessert. I’ve created a recipe that I know you will love – a tart with a cookie dough shell, a layer of dark chocolate mousse, spiced poached pears and melted dark chocolate drizzled on top.  [Read more...]
