You guys…I can’t even with the small talk today. Too excited about all things strawberry and almond butter !!! This dessert gets me seriously giddy.

When was the last time you had a perfectly ripe, super sweet and juicy strawberry? If your answer isn’t in the last week or so, you’re doing summer wrong!

Plump, sweet, and so juicy the juice runs down your chin – just as a great strawberry should be. [Read more…]

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…]
