The blog recently has been somewhat busy with things inspired by or created by my mom, and this chocolate fudge recipe is no different. In that spirit, I’ve adapted one of her favorite holiday sweets to suit our preferences: 100% dark chocolate, no added sugars, and no dairy (sweetened condensed milk).
This is a fairly easy recipe that requires a good amount of patience and “hurry up and wait” skills. We condensed coconut milk in place of condensed milk, and while it wasn’t very difficult, it certainly took some time. Trust us, it’s worth the wait.
Sausage breakfast casserole is one of my favorite ways to add meat to breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, we love bacon, but we wanted to diversify our egg recipes. This easy casserole takes very little time, and went over really well with family and as leftovers.
For this casserole, all you’ll need is ground breakfast sausage (or ground pork with some seasonings), eggs, onion, and spinach. You could easily add in some mushrooms or bell peppers to suit what’s on your mind or in your refrigerator. We hope you’ll add this egg recipe to your regular breakfast rotation. Continue reading →
This week is a big week for my mom here on the blog. She’s always inspired me to cook, craft, and all things domestic (she’s really good at them, too). It’s been a super help in the kitchen, as well as knowing how to sew up and repair pants, shirts, pillows, and blankets. You may recognize her from other recipes including this great mushroom soup and yesterday’s coconut pumpkin pie.
This recipe is one we didn’t have often when I was younger, but boy can I appreciate it now that I’m older. If you’re a cheese lover (or you splurge on cheese occasionally) this is also great with some feta. We’ve made it both ways to test, and they’re both winners. You’re going to enjoy this one.

We’ve got a snowy day here in the DC area, and I figured it was a perfect day to share a sweet recipe that is a collaboration (well 20% us) with my mom. We made this pie for Thanksgiving, and I have to say that it was a blast. In all honesty, I found this better than your standard pumpkin pie that you can pick up from the store.
This pie we let sit for almost 2 days before finally serving, and it was still fantastic. I was shocked at how the crust pulled away from the pan like a traditional pie, and the crust is really delicious. Not too sweet, a little crumbly, and not too dry (which sometimes happens with these gluten free crust/bread/sweets recipes). We hope you’ll try it and let us know how it comes out!

Applesauce was something that I grew up enjoying, but only out of small, plastic containers. As I grew older, I stopped enjoying the treat, and assumed I didn’t like it anymore. Heather encouraged me for almost a year to try her homemade applesauce, but I always turned it down saying I wasn’t “an applesauce person.” That was stupid on my part.
Thankfully, last autumn, she made it anyway. This applesauce is delicious, and I look forward to the times when she cooks it up at home. Better yet, it’s really easy. I hope you’ll take the time to make it as well; it’s a delicious homemade treat that’s way better than the stuff that’s pre-packaged in plastic. Continue reading →
