Raw Walnut Brownies

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. I don’t think that’s true always, but certainly in this case it is. It’s amazing what you can make with just dates, walnuts, and cocoa powder. This is something I’ve been making for years now. I think I learned the originally recipe from a food blog that no…

Easy Chilled Watermelon Soup

Here’s another red and blue recipe to go along with that cake. I really can’t take credit for the idea of this soup at all; it was one of those cases when you go to a restaurant and try something and think, “Hey, I can make that!” I would never have thought a sweet watermelon…

Banana Peanut Butter

I’ve always wanted to make a banana flavored peanut butter. It’s no secret bananas and peanut butter go well together. But one of the problems of a banana flavored peanut butter has always been that bananas just don’t last once you peel them. What you need is a shelf-stable banana—something like banana chips! This was…

Semi-Raw Chocolate Rum Truffles

This weekend I’m moving back to Providence, which means I’ll be just a short bus ride away from my favorite bakery again. Lord help me, my stomach, and my wallet. I keep trying to make some of their desserts in my own kitchen to save a little money, and I think I’ve figured out another…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Balls

Lately I’ve been obsessed with these raw fruit and nut snacks. And I’m always obsessed with chocolate peanut butter. I can’t understand what took me so long to combine the two. I’m not going to sugarcoat these and say they taste like Reese’s peanut butter cups; they don’t, and anyone who could get that flavor…

PB&J Balls

One of my favorite lunches growing up was a PB&J sandwich on white Wonderbread. Who doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly? And Wonderbread—that was just great stuff before anyone realized bread shouldn’t be glow-in-the-dark white. I’m getting sidetracked. What I meant to say was that these taste like the filling of a peanut butter and…

Raw Salted Almond Brownies

The last time I made raw brownies, I didn’t share the recipe. I wasn’t planning on it this time, either, but these came out so well I felt I’d be holding out if I didn’t share them. These almonds from Trader Joe’s are incredibly addicting; I’m pretty sure they’re all gone by now. Anything with…

Eat Healthy: Raw Brownies

I could never give up chocolate. It’s a daily thing for me. Even when I want to eat healthy, I’m always drawn back to it, and frankly I have no willpower to resist. That’s where the beauty of something like raw brownies come in. These are sweetened with dried fruit and the only fat comes…

Honey Vanilla Peanut Butter

I really like fancy flavored peanut butter and almond butter and all those butters. The problem is they’re usually double or triple the price. Thankfully they’re so easy to make at home. This is a great DIY recipe if you want to make breakfast a little more special, or even a great homemade gift to…

Yellow Mashed Potatoes

Every year for Thanksgiving we’ve had mashed Russet potatoes, and they’ve never really caught my attention. This year, since I’ve started to warm up a lot to the organic yellow potatoes I find at Whole Foods, I thought I’d try making mashed potatoes with those. They’re slightly waxier and starchier than Russet, which makes them…
