This smoothie bowl has been waiting to be posted for a loooooong, long time – I’ve been making this one for a WHILE, and it’s definitely one of my favorite smoothie bowls to date.

At the end of May, I moved from Seattle to San Diego via a week long road trip down the West Coast, closely followed by three weeks cruising around Europe. As if that wasn’t enough, this past weekend I went back up to Seattle to attend Pemberton music festival near Whistler in British Colombia with my friends.

While it was all so much fun and I’m not complaining for one second, since I got back from the music festival (which was amaaaaaazing) this past Monday, I have been so happy to sit my butt down on the couch, get caught up on work, and not move too much. I, for once, am happy to not have any trips in my immediate future. [Read more…]

Isn’t that the best kind there is?

When I first made these Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies last year, I knew the recipe was a total winner. They were devoured super quickly, and it barely registered that they were “Paleo” – no one cared, they were just delicious. A whole bunch of you agree with me – just check out the comments on that post! The edges of the cookies get just crispy enough, while the cookies stay super thick, so the inside is niiice and gooey, just the way I (and apparently most of you) like it. [Read more…]

Chocolate Cherry Walnut Cookies (GF)

Chocolate week continues!! This recipe has actually already been posted on Bakerita in it’s chocolate almond form.

This recipe came about when my family had some company coming over, so as per usual I was debating about the dessert menu. I just couldn’t decide what to make! My dad requested something chocolate and gluten-free, and I gave him the option of Dark Chocolate Almond Meringue Cookies or Chocolate Fudge Crinkle Cookies. He said he wanted the meringue cookies, but with fresh cherries in them. [Read more…]
