These No-Bake Almond Joy Cookies are made with just 8 ingredients. They truly are the perfect sweet treat to enjoy on a hot summer day. Vegan and gluten-free. The other day, I had a serious craving for chocolate chip cookies. But it’s been so hot here lately, there was no way in hell I was about to turn on my oven to melt in my kitchen from the heat. So, instead of giving up on…

I dunno, but it sounded like a lot of work, so I swapped…

Hello, hello! Yesterday was filled with a bunch of delicious eats. Oh, yes, it was. Don’t you love when that happens? It makes my stomach happy! Breakfast Over the weekend, I stumbled upon a recipe for Plantain Pancakes with Maple Coconut Cream and Toasted Walnuts (doesn’t that just sound delightful?!), and, of course, I needed to make them as soon as possible. And, holy goodness, they were amazing! I’ll definitely make them again in the…

I am loving the idea of making a yogurt parfait in a jar. It’s so convenient! And fun! I went into NuVal for a few hours this morning, so I packed one to take with me for lunch. Woohoo! Yogurt parfait to go! This morning, while making his breakfast, Mal noticed that our raspberries were going bad, so he instructed me to “finish ’em off.” I hate seeing food go to waste, so these on-their-last-day…

Poor Murphy just had a mini heart attack! Actually, I did, too! 😯 Murph was sound asleep on my lap when the mirror, handing on the wall in our living room, came crashing down and startled him awake. It definitely surprised me, too! Murphy is still bugged-out by the mirror and barks at it every time he walks by it. Poor, guy. I hope that 7 years of bad luck are not in my future!…
