When I started making this tart, it was going to be something else entirely. An almond-crusted tart, with chocolate and berries. Alas, I made a last minute switch to peanuts in the crust, and after tasting the peanut butter-y deliciousness, that idea was scrapped and this one was born, being built as I went.

Oh man, what an amazing creation it turned out to be! This is peanut butter & jelly at it’s finest – and perfect for these warmer days, since there’s NO baking required. [Read more…]

Remember those No-Bake Lemon Tarts I made for you a few weeks ago??? With their incredibly smooth and tart filling, they stayed on my mind a lot longer than they lasted in my kitchen. They disappeared SO quickly and to such rave reviews, I was immediately craving another batch.

I also heard from a few of you who made and loved them. As I was chatting with one girl about how much she enjoyed them, I proposed the idea of wanting to change the crust around a bit. She concurred, and we agreed something a little graham cracker-crust like would be fabulous. [Read more…]

I’ve probably mentioned it before, but lemon desserts typically are not my favorite. They have the tendency to be way too sweet, with way too much sugar compared to the amount of tart lemon.

If I’m having a lemon dessert, I want IN YOUR FACE super tart lemon flavor. Don’t give me something that tastes like a lemon candy or something with so much sugar it makes me pucker up for the wrong reasons. [Read more…]

I’ve been on a cashew cheesecake kick lately – I can’t seem to get enough of them, and I’m constantly impressed by the lusciously smooth and creamy filling that results after a few minutes whizzing in the blender.

I feel like I’ve rekindled my love for baking, post-Whole30. Not that it even left, but after not being able to make many of the recipes I dreamed up during my baking-free month, it feels so good to get back into the kitchen to create a whole bunch of new dessert goodness.

Testing, tasting, and tweaking recipes are some of my favorite things (obviously) and after a month without it, I really missed the process of developing new recipes. Of course, I did it during my Whole30 with my Whole30-approved recipes, but I wasn’t testing nearly as much as normal. [Read more…]
