This post was created in partnership with Bob’s Red Mill. For the past few months I’ve found myself making these cookies at least once a week. And when I realized the recipe wasn’t on this site I knew I had to change that ASAP. So here I am with what might be your new favorite afternoon pick-me-up: CHOCOLATE CHUNK SNACKING COOKIES! But before I say anything else, I feel like I should probably make it clear that these things aren’t meant to replace cookies of the dessert variety. Because – if I had to just pick one – I’m obviously going to go with the cookie that’s made with brown sugar and unbleached flour.. and is filled with pockets of melted, sweetened chocolate. But snacking cookies have their time and place. Like early in the morning when you’re running out of the house and realize you forgot to eat breakfast. Grab a couple snacking cookies. Or when mid-afternoon rolls around and you really don’t feel like making a proper snack. Grab a couple snacking cookies. Or at 7PM when you can feel the pre-dinner hangry creeping up and you’re like I SWEAR IF THIS PASTA DOESN’T BOIL FASTER. Grab a couple– […]

This post was created in partnership with OXO. Unless you’re new around here, you’re well aware that I’m an up-by-6AM kinda morning person. I live for mornings and the quite, dark hours before everything starts to stir. It’s my time to sit with my thoughts and my coffee and just chill the F out before I start the day. So it should come as no surprise that the first thing I do when I get out of bed each morning is walk downstairs, fill the electric kettle (I’m not one to promote unnecessary consumption but if you haven’t upgraded your stovetop kettle to the adjustable temperature pour-over kettle— WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?) (not only do you get to control the water temperature (!) but the body and handle design make for a super smooth pour), and drink a big glass of room temperature water while I wait for the other water to boil. Once the water is ready, I make my favorite cup of pour-over and savor it from the comfort of our couch (or bed). I do this every single morning of every single day and it’s been my routine for as long as I can remember. Even […]

This post was created in partnership with Bob’s Red Mill. I’m baaack! Already. With the most delicious way to use that salted coconut caramel cream sauce I shared a couple days ago: COCONUT BANOFFEE PIE. I originally had my stomach set on making this pie with a gluten-free pretzel crust but then I remembered the surplus of Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats I had sitting in the cupboard and figured I should probably find a way to put them to use in something that isn’t oatmeal. And it was then that the oat + pecan crust option was born. It was also then that I started chronically overthinking this pie. For a solid 48 hours I went back and forth, and eventually I decided there were far better things I could be doing with my time so I left the fate of the pie crust up to a trusty Instagram poll. I was almost certain the pretzel crust was going to sweep (because why wouldn’t it?) but, much to my surprise, 63% of you said you wanted to see the banoffee pie made with an oat + pecan crust (my husband was in that 63%) (he also reheats his leftover pizza […]

This post was created in partnership with Bob’s Red Mill. If you’ve been around these parts for the past half decade, you’re probably well aware that this is the fourth caramel sauce recipe to appear on this site (previously: how to make caramel sauce, easy caramel sauce, and almondmilk caramel sauce). A part of me feels like I should be embarrassed about that because four caramel sauce recipes is borderline excessive but this new one.. this new one is a game changer. Partly because you can basically just set a timer and let it boil away (unattended) on the stovetop but mostly because it doesn’t require the full fat coconut cream to be separated from the water (low maintenance coconut milk caramel sauce, FTW). The other thing I love about this recipe? The flavor. The flavor is BANGIN’ and that’s all thanks to a delectable granulated sweetener called coconut sugar. But considering I’ve been a little bit of a, uhh, coconut sugar scrooge, I suppose I’ve got some explaining to do. Here’s the thing: I like coconut sugar. I like coconut sugar a lot. But it drives me wild that certain people/publications on the WWW act like it’s a healthy alternative […]

This post was created in partnership with OXO. A few days before Thanksgiving I stumbled upon an article on domino titled Eat This Before You Eat Your Thanksgiving Feast. Did you read it? Did the advice the article was dishing out make you as angry as it made me? Listen, I’m all about eating mindfully and making better food choices but a woman (and registered dietician) featured in the article suggested we: eat before the big meal so we’re not as tempted to make poor food choices, wear form-fitting clothing so that we’re physically unable to comfortably overeat (she claims “nothing feels worse than when you eat so much you have to unbutton a button or loosen your belt” but she obviously has no idea what she’s talking about because unbuttoning your pants after a big holiday meal is one of the greatest feelings EVER), and carry a clutch so we have one less hand available for reaching, grabbing, etc. Not surprisingly, I read that article with my mouth wide open thinking how sad it is that someone gave this woman a platform to spew her nonsense. I’m pretty sure I’m preaching to the choir here but it goes without […]

Guys! It’s here. The coconut milk + coconut cream post I’ve been talking about for the better half of this year. What started out as a quest to find a can of coconut milk that didn’t completely suck turned into a bunch of late-night experiments – one of which resulted in me figuring out how to salvage a bad can of coconut milk (well, only if that can of coconut milk is one of my go-to brands) – and me realizing the canned coconut stuff isn’t talked about nearly as much as it should be, considering how finicky it is. So basically I’m here to divulge more information about coconut milk/cream than anyone ever needed or wanted to know. And in the process I’m going to help ensure shitty cans of coconut milk (and cream) are a thing of the past. But first we need to talk about the term cream. Because the canned stuff that’s labeled coconut cream isn’t exactly the same stuff that rises to the top of a can of chilled coconut milk/cream – which is also referred to as coconut cream (and it causes a lot of confusion, apparently). Canned coconut cream still contains water and needs to be chilled […]

This post was created in partnership with Califia Farms. It’s been a while since I was up at 4AM to write a blog post but here I am, wide-eyed and un-caffeinated – squished between Thom and the very edge of our bed – and kinda/sorta wishing I was still asleep. In the old days (HA), I used to wake up at 4AM on the regular and now I can’t remember the last time I was up this early.. and I feel really good about that because starting the day at 4AM is totally fucking insane, you guys. Anyway. Today is Halloween. And our Halloween plans consist of: Me making and drinking a boatload of coffee (and celebrating what would have been my Opa’s 78th birthday) as soon as I publish this post. Waking Thom and starting the long process of encouraging him to get out of bed (dude is not a morning person). Driving down to Alchemy HQ to make and scoop and package our almond cacao bites.. which gave me a boatload of trouble early last week but thankfully I develop recipes for a living sooooo I figured it out (hot tip for anyone using a 45QT Blixer to make […]

This post was created in partnership with OXO. If it wasn’t clear from my old radiator shelfie lined with coffee-making devices, I like coffee. A lot. So much that I drink two or three big mugs of it a day. At one point I tried reducing my coffee intake (you might remember this) but I quickly realized that I feel pretty miserable when I don’t start my day with copious amounts of coffee (and then Thom informed me that I’m also a miserable person to be around when I’m trying to lay off the coffees). Thankfully, a switch flipped and I realized coffee wasn’t entirely to blame – it was the fact that I would drink three mugs of the stuff on an empty stomach. One mug on an empty stomach? Ok. Three? Not a good idea. For anyone. Ever. So now I rarely get the jitters. Or an achy stomach. Or any of the other symptoms that had me convinced I NEED TO QUIT COFFEE ASAP. Me and coffee are cool now and I’m really happy about it because (much like bread) COFFEE IS LIFE and DEATH BEFORE DECAF and yadda yadda yadda. But sugar! Can we talk about sugar for […]

This post was created in partnership with Chocolove. The last time I shared a proper baked dessert recipe was back in February (FEBRUARY!) so I figured I should probably hop back on the real deal dessert train because, well, the ratio of naturally sweetened desserts to cane sugar sweetened deserts was starting to become a little.. bothersome. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about some naturally sweetened goodness but when I want to indulge I want a dessert that’s made with cane sugar – not maple syrup or medjool dates. And not coconut sugar, either. I haven’t always felt this way but since I’ve started eating more intuitively – you know, listening to my body – I’ve noticed that my late-night sugar craving is easy satisfied with a measly 10 grams of refined sugar. But when I try to go the natural route? Try 30+ grams. Which makes it really easy to reach for one of these cookies instead of something that might be deemed “healthier” based solely on the fact that it’s naturally sweetened. Anyway, let’s chat about these cookies for a minute. You might be wondering What’s so special about freezer cookie dough? so let me break it down […]

This post was created in partnership with Califia Farms. Hi guys. Ashlae here. Remember me? I was planning on coming here today and unloading the novel that is my transition from long distance running to heavy weight lifting but I kinda feel like I can’t come back after six weeks away and just be like HEY GUYS WANNA TALK ABOUT ALL THE WAYS I SABOTAGED MY LIFE FOR 15 YEARS? It’s a really sad and ugly story, and I’m very much content with it living in the privacy of a document on my laptop for just a little bit longer. Yesterday I nearly had a panic attack just thinking about the fact that soon the worst parts of my life would be on the WWW for anyone to see, so I listened to my gut and pumped the brake. And damn I felt so much better. Anyway! I have some random notes/updates for you. – As many of you know our turd of a president cut the advertising budget for the ACA (he also cut the enrollment period, amongst other things) (why is he suuuch a turd?), so my nice pal Collin put together a bundle of graphics to help […]
