Blood Orange, White Chocolate Pound Cake


It's a wonderful thing when a pretty cake actually tastes good. I grow weary of the "food porn" pictures of overly frosted confections with ridiculous combinations. Form and function should work together! That's why this little number from The Boy Who Bakes is such a welcome recipe.

It was serendipitous that I had bookmarked this cake on my to-do list when I happened upon some blood oranges at the market. Who am I to question such an obvious sign?

Decadent Brownies


This past Valentine's day, the hubby and I got the notion of hot fudge sundae brownies in our head. A daring thought, considering my weak-sauce sweet tooth. What ends up happening is I ditch the ice cream to focus on the chocolate, while my husband fends off my "picking" with a spoon. It's not a good look. I could honestly just eat straight hot fudge and almonds/walnuts- spare us both the battle- but where's the sport in that? : )

Banana Bread Waffles {Dairy-Free}


These waffles are a hybrid of recipes from Just So Tasty (Banana Bread Waffles) and Hummingbird High (Paleo Banana Bread Waffles). I do my best to stay on that Paleo game but I know my husband. When it comes to breads - do not play with him. Keep the almond and coconut flour away - he wants some some good old fashioned brunch! I would like to note, however, these Paleo Dirty Chai Pancakes did win his immediate approval.

Llama Cake


This Llama Cake was made for my favorite Peruvian Princess' birthday! I was super honored that she would ask me to make her cake. She let me have free reign, simply stating she wanted something with her favorite animal, the noble llama.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies


I was in the middle of making my favorite paleo chocolate chip cookies from Bakerita when I realized we didn't have coconut sugar. Crab apples! Rather than admit defeat, I decided it was time to compromise my principles and make some substitutes.
