The Whole30 is over for me, and although I am eating a much more healthy diet (give me all of the fruits and vegetables!) I am finding that a little indulgence goes a long way, and is SO needed from time to time. Take these Double Chocolate Olive Oil Brownies for example. Each brownie has a crackly top, a fudgy, chewy interior, and chocolate for days. And they’re made with my secret weapon from Queen Creek Olive Mill! Bet you can’t eat just one! (head directly to the bottom of the post for your new favorite recipe).

In the past, an after dinner drink was only something I would enjoy at a restaurant. It was the thing I savored at the end of a long, decadent meal at some place I’d been dying to go to for months. An after dinner drink always felt like a total indulgence and something to be savored. With two young kids, my opportunities for long, lazy dinners out have become less frequent and I’ve been enjoying more entertaining at home. So, I figured, why not bring the after dinner drink home, too? Our Bourbon Salted Caramel Coffee with Whipped Cream will be a total hit at your next dinner party. Using Torani syrup for that fabulous salted caramel flavor and serving in JoyJolt glasses for a beautiful presentation, this drink will be your new go to!…

I have a confession: I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. I know, I know. It’s a holiday celebrating love. What’s not to, well, love? I adore the idea of celebrating those we cherish but truthfully, I sometimes think it’s all just a bit much. Overpriced flowers. Complicated and overpriced dinners. Boxes of chocolates filled with strange flavors where you just pray for the chocolate covered caramels. Well, I can’t do much about the flowers or the prix-fixe dinners, but I am going to share an amazing recipe for Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups that are simple, inexpensive, and way better than those heart shaped box options! Your Valentine will love them. And so will you.
Tis the season for joy and cheer! Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukah or Kwanza or something entirely different, cookies are a great and fun way to get everyone into the kitchen! Not to mention, such a great gift to brighten someone else’s day! From the traditional to the unusual, here are the recipes that we want to be trying! Make a plate of these and bring them to your neighbors, your coworkers, your friends!
You know when you are looking for something indulgent but simple? ME TOO!
Something fairly quick but unusual? ME TOO!
A recipe that will impress your kids? Well maybe not so much on that one…but if it happens (and it did) then bonus!
These Chocolate Strawberry Eggrolls will check ALL of the boxes!
