Tahini & Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Once I tried this combination of savory, smoky tahini paste and sweet, creamy milk chocolate, my life was changed for the better! They are as picture perfect as they are satisfying, so you can feel  confident serving them for an afterschool snack and at the local bake sale.  Plus, everyone will want to know what that incredible secret ingredient is. (I tell them “love” of course!)

Piña Colada Veggie Smoothie

  A sweet and creamy tropical morning  smoothie that reminds me of our honeymoon on the beach! Unlike the Jamaican beverages, this version is packed with vitamins, probiotics and is high in protein,  so I feel really good about giving it to my family! 

Morning Glory (“Kitchen Sink”) Muffins

  A muffin that taste like cake, is chock full of healthy ingredients, and keeps me full for hours? Now that’s my kind of breakfast on-the-go! I love that it can be tailored to anyone’s preference, adding or substituting ingredients as you like.  Carrots, apples, raisins, spices, coconut, dates, orange zest… the options are endless! 

Creamy Lime Tart

 Just in time for Pi Day, St. Patrick’s Day and the first day of spring, this creamy lime tart is just as addictive as Meyer lemon bars, but with a little more pucker! It can be prepared entirely in the food processor, has the easiest crust in the world, and would look so lovely on your Easter table!

Bakery Style Lemon & White Chocolate Muffins

Bakery muffins have such an appeal. The exotic flavor combinations, the giant proportions in pretty papers, the streusel or sugar covered domes... I decided to step up my muffin game and create a bakery worthy muffin for my loved ones right here at home! A sweet and lemony batter studded with white chocolate chunks and crunchy turbinado topping make a perfect excuse to stay in and linger at the breakfast table just a little longer.
