Paleo Vegan Brownie Recipe & Paleo Mug Muffins 2 Review

A few months ago, I introduced you all to Heather over at Cook it Up Paleo. We did a recipe exchange where she let me share my recipe for Lemon Lavender Muffins on her site and I got the pleasure of posting her insane Paleo Lemon Brownie recipe for you all. If you've tried these, or just merely browsed the hundreds of recipes on her site, you've probably noticed that she has a gift when it comes to sweets, easy recipes and being extremely allergy friendly.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake (Dairy Free, Paleo)

Every fall, I beg Kyle to go apple picking. I act like a 5 year old child, refusing to leave the store without a new toy and stomp around screaming until he agrees. Alright, it's not that extreme, but it is pretty close. We never went last year, so in preparation for Fall 2015, I began my requests last November.

Paleo Caramel Swirl Brownie Squares (AIP, Dairy Free)

Guys, I can take a hint. I get it. I was a jerk. Almost a month ago I previewed a recipe on my Instagram and Facebook (which you should follow if you don't already) for my new Caramel Swirl Cake Squares. Then I politely told you all to "stay tuned" before I basically shoved them off into a black whole in the universe. I received some polite "can't wait for these" reminders

Small Batch GF Vanilla Cupcakes + Chocolate Mint Frosting

Remember my best friend, Kyra? She helped me test and perfect my Double Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe. Well, somehow that girl has impeccable timing for recipe work! While awaiting the return of our boyfriends from Africa, she helped me be super productive by testing out a cupcake and frosting recipe. She also made sure I didn't feel left out and joined me when I ate a spoonful or three of frosting. What a great friend!

Paleo Pumpkin Pie

The end of 2014 is here! After how much food I ate over the holidays, I am ready to greet the New Year with a detox. Cleaner, stricter paleo for the month of January is how I plan to kick off 2015. That means less honey, more greens. Less fruit, more protein. Less alcohol, more water... (I didn't say this would all be easy).

Anise Cookies

It is just over two weeks until Christmas and smack dab in the middle of one of my favorite times of year. Chicago is all lit up, it is mitten weather, so what is it I'm all "bah humbug" about? Where the heck is my snow?! You may call me crazy, but all I want to do is look out my window at work and see downtown covered in a beautiful white layer.

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Banana Bread

In true female fashion, when I asked my friend, Kyra, what treat she would want for her birthday, her simple answer was "something chocolate." Since she follows paleo as well, her answer gave us endless options. I waited to make the dessert until she got into town and then I enlisted her help. Our first take on this recipe was really good. It took us and the boys about 5 minutes to demolish; however, there was a major consensus that it needed "more chocolate!"
