These vegetarian mushroom gyoza are perfect party appetizers! They taste amazing and can be prepared in advance.

I listen to a lot of music, though I’ll be the first to admit none of it is very new. Music is often playing in the background while I’m working in the kitchen or editing photos. I’m picky about what I listen to and don’t find myself downloading new music very often. I have several favorite artists and Radiohead sits near or possibly even on top of the throne. I’ve been bad about keeping up with their more recent albums but I’m fairly obsessed with the older catalogue of music.  [Read more...]

These mini Vanilla Cream Cakes are a soft, dense and perfectly portioned dessert.

Hello, I’m Jen Farley and I’m a sugar addict. If you’ve been following along with my journey this year you are probably aware of my struggle to find a balance between working full time as a food blogger and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In January I went on a five day juice detox and then began transitioning to an 80/20 paleo lifestyle. I started writing a column over at Parade Magazine detailing my experience. So how am I doing?  [Read more...]

These Dark Chocolate Chunk Rumchata Cookies are seriously amazing. People will beg you for the recipe!

I should make it clear right up front that this recipe is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Rumchata. I just really like the stuff and it’s not the first time I’ve used it in a recipe. What can I say, I love adding booze to dessert. I’ve previously used Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kalua, Chambord… it just adds such a tasty, fun element to my recipes. And it’s always a crowd pleaser. Walk into a room and say “Who wants boozy cookies?” The response is typically positive. [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...]

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries are the perfect Valentine's Day Dessert!

I love celebrating Valentine’s Day. I don’t think it needs to be a big ordeal involving gifts and cards. It doesn’t even have to involve going out to dinner. In fact, my favorite way to enjoy the holiday is by having a quiet, romantic dinner for two at home. Nothing overly heavy, just small bites that are full of flavors.

Of course, the dessert must include chocolate.  [Read more...]
