White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

A Sweet Christmassy Treat

Posted on December 08, 2016
The idea for White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart came about shortly after making the  Chocolate & Espresso Tart. I was writing the recipe to share, and suddenly it hit me. What if I used white chocolate?! From there the recipe evolved as I considered what would taste great with the white chocolate. Initially, I had a vision of a beautiful white tart with swirls of green and crumbles of peppermint on top. Things went a little sideways when I accidentally overheated the white chocolate and it bound. (That means that chocolate went from this smooth and creamy mixture to a hard and grainy blob.) I was able to fix it a little, but the liquid separated out. To rescue this, I topped the whole thing with a layer of dark chocolate ganache. Feel free to make this look however you like, though. Swirl the white, dark, and mint chocolate together, or layer them all separately. It’s up to you and how you feel this dessert should look.

Super Healthy Banana Muffins

Super Healthy Banana Muffins

With Oatmeal and Flax

Posted on September 08, 2016
In my quest for super healthy and portable foods for consumption in the office I found many recipes, but they all had one flaw or another. Too moist, too dry, too tasteless. These Super Healthy Banana Muffins have it all though. They taste like those muffins you can get in stores, only they pack a super healthy punch from the flax; and a super foods kick from the coconut oil. These muffins are filling and smell wonderful too. You need to try these as soon as possible.

Allergen Free Muffins

Allergen Free Muffins

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free

Posted on October 01, 2015
Allergen Free Muffins. I'd love to say that these came from a desire to make something special for a friend who has a special diet, but no. I had no fruit to go in my yogurt, and had no ingredients to make my Oatmeal Date Muffins, or any normal muffins at all for that matter. Seriously, I needed to figure out what to make because I had no eggs either! I couldn't even make a quick omelette or anything! But I needed breakfast so I made due with what I had on hand. Did you know that you can substitute ground flax for eggs in a recipe? In the end, these moist and filling muffins wound up being delicious and shareable!

One Bite Black Bean Brownies

One Bite Black Bean Brownies

On The Grill

Posted on August 24, 2014

When cooking for a crowd there are many times where you have people that have allergies. These are things that need to be considered carefully when selecting a menu. Recently I had the pleasure of cooking for 50-ish people. There were people that were gluten free, dairy free, diabetic, corn free and even egg free! Funnily enough no nut allergies... but I digress. Basically I wanted to finish off the meal that I prepared with a little bit of a sweet treat. I was inspired by The Minimalist Baker's Vegan Gluten Free Brownies to make these, One Bite Black Bean Brownies aren't crazy sweet but they have that hit of chocolate and fudge-ish texture that you like in a brownie.
