Chocolate & Caramel Dipped Apples

For my last post of October, I wanted to make it a festive one! A few days ago, the 28th, it was national chocolate day and tomorrow is national caramel apple day, as well as Halloween. So I thought I would make a cute little snack that would be perfect for all these occasions. Typical…

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Let me just start by saying I was never a huge smoothie drinker. I don’t know why, but I never really made myself smoothies nor did I really ever have the desire to do so. However, since making the cinnamon-almond green smoothie from the Love Real Food cookbook (link here), I’ve been on a smoothie…

Chocolate & Cranberry Biscotti

If you like a cookie with a little more texture, I’d recommend making some biscotti. Based on the name – bi (two) and cotti (cooked) – these cookies are baked twice, which gives them a nice crunch. I’ve made almond-orange biscotti before that turned out incredible (link here) but today I tried a new recipe….

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a classic treat? I haven’t made a basic chocolate chip cookie in so long, I almost forgot how good they are. I was just in a baking mood so I made a recipe from Gimme Some Oven (link here). The recipe name says these cookies are the BEST, and honestly, they’re pretty…

Recipe #46: German Chocolate Cake

Just wanted to start this post by saying happy holidays to everyone. No matter what you celebrate – Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza – I hope you are with the people you love and eating lots of good food. I celebrate Chanukah so I’ve been eating my fair share of jelly doughnuts and potato pancakes (in hebrew:…

Recipe #35: Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

No bake desserts? Uh yes please! If you want a nice treat in a pinch, you should try these cookies. This no-bake snack reminds me of the trail mix granola bites I made a little while back (recipe #20 here). These types of desserts are just so great to make and keep in the fridge…

Recipe #17: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s a pretty big coincidence that I have 2 peanut butter recipes in a row but I’m not complaining because I love peanut butter (this was yesterday’s peanut tofu bowl). These cookies were so easy to make and tasted good. They are pretty similar to a basic peanut butter cookie recipe (sugar, peanut butter, egg)…

Carrot Brownies

Hi there! Welcome to carrot week! This is the 7th ingredient that I’m using in my challenge. Like I said, I’m using carrots this week and I’m trying some new things with them. I know I recently made brownies during black bean week (link here), but I wanted to make them again, but this time,…

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

I love those huge cookie cakes that you can get for birthdays or special occasions. I didn’t want to buy one though because they are way overpriced. They also don’t seem too difficult to make yourself, so I tried it. And as you can see, this was for father’s day and my dad loved it….

Recipe #91: Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Mmm muffins. They’re one of the easiest desserts and there are so many different varieties you can make. I’m not a huge fan of super chocolatey desserts but these muffins are honestly amazing. They are actually pretty healthy too, which makes them relatively guilt free, so you can eat multiple without feeling bad about it….
