Healthy Truffles

If there really were such a thing as a healthy truffle recipe, this would be it. I say that because I realize calling this a healthy truffle recipe to begin with is a bit of a stretch. Kind of like calling a cauliflower steak "steak"... no one's buying it. Where's the meat?!?!? So let's for… Continue reading Healthy Truffles

The Ice Cream You Can Eat for Dinner

My kids ask for ice cream for dinner all the time. Finally I got tired of saying no... "OK, let's make ice cream!".... Banana ice cream! Pick your battles, right? This is one I'm happy to lose. Because nutritionally it beats just about anything else they'd choose. And we can skip the whole part where… Continue reading The Ice Cream You Can Eat for Dinner
