5-Minute Grain-Free Nut Crust

Rich, buttery and lightly salted this 5-minute grain free crust is the perfect contrast to fruity fillings, bringing them to a whole new level. It would also be a fabulous base for a chocolate pie or any cream-based filling.

Garlic Yogurt Sauce with Herbs – A Perfect Complement For Meats

This tangy, herb-infused garlic yogurt sauce can be thrown together at the last second as a perfect sauce to serve alongside many meals. It goes well with grilled meat of any kind (chicken, beef, lamb) and I’m dreaming of a burger that is topped with arugula, fresh jalapenos and a big dollop of this […]

Chocolate-Dipped “Caramel” Nut Pops (4 Ingredients)

“Oooooooh ya, baby!” … out of the mouth of my innocent 7-yr-old babe when I handed him one of these Chocolate-Dipped “Caramel” Nut Pops. Followed my “mmm, mmmm” and “I want another one”.

It makes me laugh and celebrate at the same time when kids act so over the top about a healthy snack. This […]
