Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip {Edible} Cookie Dough

 

Edible Cookie Dough

Who doesn’t need a way to legitimately eat cookie dough and not wonder in the back of your mind if you are going to fall deathly ill?

I actually created this recipe so that I could make cookie dough and brownie homemade ice cream. There never seems to be enough cookie dough pieces in pints of ice cream you find at the store. To make things even more interesting, I also like to add peanut butter and sometimes Nutella to the mix. Continue Reading…

Clean & Healthy Chunky Chicken Salad

I am really happy to finally post this chicken salad recipe. Chicken salad has so many versions, it really comes down to your preference. What’s common here in the south is chicken salad that is more “mushy” sort of like tunafish. Me no likey that. So this is a chunky version with cubed chicken breasts in a healthy Greek yogurt base with tons of dill – one of the best herbs of all times ever. Continue Reading…

Whiskey Chocolate French Silk Pie filled Cupcake

 

Whiskey Chocolate French Silk Pie Cupcake

My first cupcake challenge! I was asked by one of my coworkers to make his favorite Bakers Square, French Silk Pie into a cupcake form. My response to that,  was naturally, how bout I just make you  a French Silk Pie instead? Pie is pie, cupcakes are cupcakes… two different names for a reason. He said no, I want this pie to be a cupcake. Ha! Well, against my better judgement, I created a French Silk Pie cupcake. And really, this experience taught me that any pie can be turned into a cupcake… so welcome to a new world of possibilities!! More pie-cupcakes coming soon, thanks to Tony as his creative brain!

Triple Peanut Butter Cupcakes (w/ Peanut Butter “Nutella” Filling)

 

Death by peanut butter cupcakes -Moist peanut buttery goodness!

Peanut butter lovers unite! Fall is in the air and I’m in heaven. This is my absolute favorite time of year. It’s cozy, cool outside and the trees are beautiful. I have so many happy associations with fall that just give me that warm feeling inside. Holidays, festive music, the food, family time, warm cider, the smells… OMG why is this time of year literally the best!? Although peanut butter is not traditionally a “fall flavor”, the colors of these cupcakes remind me of fall, so, yeah,  basically any excuse to call this a fall cupcake and still get away with using my favorite ingredient (peanut butter) will do 🙂 Continue Reading…

Low Carb Cocoa Banana Guilt-Free Dessert Muffin

 

Cocoa Banana Low Carb Dessert Muffins with Peanut Butter - Guilt Free! :) This! This! This! I feel like these should be called LIFE CHANGING MUFFINS because they have seriously given me a reason to live.

They are super chocolatey, ridiculously moist and have that fresh essence from the mashed bananas in the batter.  What more could you ask for? Continue Reading…
