Chocolate Tart with Balsamic Stewed Cherries

Chocolate TartI hinted about pie on Tuesday while cooking up chocolate for dinner and once the seed was planted, that’s all I could think about it. So it was with some determination that I ripped the cabin cupboards apart to find some kind of a pie plate. I came up with one mangled foil pie plate! Success. As much as you can call a ratty tatty broken foil pie plate success.

A Chocolate Tart was born. It helps that I actually had the ingredients on hand to make it. Running to the store isn’t exactly an option. So with chocolate and a foil pie plate in hand I now present…

Chocolate Pie. Dat dada dah!

Maple Pecan Zucchini Brownies (Flourless!) GrF, DF

Zucchini Brownies

You’re probably thinking, “Another brownie recipe?” Ok, maybe not. But it’s true that I don’t post sweets that often. Brownies twice in one month? Crazy. Over kill? I don’t think so. At least not in the current circumstances.

My sweet little dog died yesterday. Shasta was 10. She was rescued at 6 and a half years of age. We hope we gave her a good life, that we did right by her. Gosh, I miss her little face, her little cheesy Dorito smell she gives off when she’s all curled up and sleeping like a log. Her big begging eyes that say “I’m not begging, but if you loved me you’d share.” Not chocolate, of course, though…

Unbelievable Chocolate Coconut Brownies

Is it bad to eat 6 brownies in between lunch and dinner?

It can’t be good right?

Unless of course they are delicious brownies. After all, I have had some bad brownies in my time. Some dried out wannabe version of a brownie. Crumbly, flavorless. or worse, “too sweet they stick to the teeth and I need 2 glasses of milk to swallow it down” brownies. Then there are the failed attempts at making healthy brownies. There are a surprising amount of those out there. Blah. Nasty. I have been not only the victim of said failed brownies, but the creator as well!

As you might already know, not everything I make is considered healthy. Especially when you consider all the different food circles that exist out there. And you know what? That’s ok by me. Everyone’s got their own version of what is healthy. Some say paleo, others say primal, or vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, grain free, traditional diets (WAP), allergy free…the list goes on. Mine is simply to stick to real food/whole food and try for moderation.

TV Tuesday #28 – 5 Minute Date Night Chocolate Dessert (GrF) & An Insane Giveaway!

 Do you and your partner make time for regular date nights?

Joshua and I have started doing date night every week. It changes depending on the schedule, but we’ve committed to doing it once a week.

We used to go out. You know, typical date night out. But there’s a problem. We love good food. We like to make good food together and eating out is kind of a hassle. It’s nice to eat at home because I know the quality of food we’re using. I also know where I bought it from, how it was grown and it’s always delicious.

Bonus: I never have to worry about bad service. Just saying.
