So I wasn’t lying when I said these were ugly! I’d be lying if I said I’ve seen a beautiful meatloaf….because I haven’t. Its one of those dishes that taste better than they look.  I promise you, if you try these, you might just have them as a regular go-to dinner during the week because […]

Chickpeas and peanut butter? Interesting or plain wrong? If you haven’t used beans in a baked good before, get adventurous…it has great results!

You can tailor this recipe to be mild or spicy, depending on […]

  Rich, sweet hot chocolate. Isn’t it the best?  I usually steer clear of regular hot chocolate simply because of the amount of sugar it contains.  Its like drinking a chocolate bar!  So I played around and figured out how to make it taste great, and use one of my favorite no-cal sweeteners….stevia!  I should […]
