Double Chocolate Banana Granola

I think I need to look into joining a support group. Granola Eaters Anonymous, for those who just can’t stop [at one handful]. Something like that has to exist, right? I mean… I can’t be the only one who can’t control herself around granola. Who sits down with the intention to onlyRead more ››

Zesty Lemon Lime Hummus

I popped my homemade hummus cherry for you guys. I just thought you should know that. I’ve loved hummus for as long as I can remember, but… actually, nope… that’s not entirely true. I can clearly remember a time where I didn’t love hummus. Heck, can clearly remember a timeRead more ››

Double Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Bites

Double Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Bites

February is a good month for chocolate. I mean, every month is a good month for chocolate, but February and chocolate go particularly well together… probably because of Valentine’s Day.
