“Banana Cream Pie” Chia Pudding… Dairy/Egg/Refined Sugar Free

  Right now I am really trying to focus on my health, and my eating habits.  My ND has told me time and time again I really need to limit my sugar intake – cane sugar, agave, maple syrup, etc… The bottom line is that sugar is sugar, and I’m only fooling myself thinking it’s…

The gluten/dairy free version of the Barefoot Contessa’s Coconut Cake

This cake is positively sinful.  I don’t recommend baking it if you are dieting.  It is dense and moist; you will want to eat more than just one slice!  I first made this cake for my mom’s birthday party.  My dad bought my mom a fabulous cake from a local bakery, but of course, it…

I am a little behind in my blog postings this week (sorry guys!). I had a bunch of recipes dreamed up in my head, but unfortunately the flu struck, and I am still recouping. Chocolate Crinkles have to be one of my all time favorite Christmas cookies.   Who can resist a cookie that tastes…
