Better than Reese’s Chocolate Nut Butter Squares

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (1)

Sometimes a candy bar seems like the cure for all of life’s woes. But seriously, sometimes there is immense comfort in the forbidden foods. This is why I don’t make foods taboo and I usually just find a way to make that pleasurable and decadent item WAY better.

A few weeks ago I had a client who noticed that when she was feeling stressed she would go straight for the Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. These were her drug of choice. The moment she bit into that chocolatey peanut buttery cup that melted as she savored each bite, she felt euphoric. It was like nothing else mattered because it was just her and that peanut butter chocolate orgasm.

Fudgey Vegan Brownie Bites

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (2)

Ah Valentine’s Day, the day of chocolate…oh and love. I’ve been trying to perfect the ultimate vegan brownie that doesn’t take like sawdust, require more than one or two bowls and makes my honey ask for “more of those chewy amazing brownies.”

It’s hard to find a vegan brownie that doesn’t require a ton of ingredients and that leaves something to be desired. And I can’t seem to find a brand or company that makes them the way I like them, so lo and behold, these baby brownie bites were born. There’s no real elaborate story leading me to this recipe. Honestly, I woke up one day and decided it was time to make a vegan brownie that didn’t taste like crap and didn’t make me feel like crap. I believe indulgence should be full of pleasure and without any guilt or ill feeling the next day. All love baby 😉

Snow Day Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (7)

Howdie lovers!

NYC got SLAMMED with snow. Winter was tired of our trash talk and decided to show up, give us some snow (okay, lots of snow about 25 plus inches) then bounce, leaving the city in disarray.

So what do you do with a snow day or two (after you play outside because the roads are closed of course)?

YOU BAKE!

And binge watch Avatar the Last Airbender. Yea, super cheesy but Matt and I love this show. It’s perfect and really helps you tune into that inner child 😉 Oh yes.

Beware of the power of these cookies. You will not be able to slow down because they are just so so so delicious. So be sure to hide them in the kitchen, out of reach just so you can savor them a little longer.
