So 5 days after my fever finally broke, it has resurfaced in my daughter. Poor thing : / I was really hoping that since I had gotten better without any other casualties that we were all in the clear. Guess not. Still crossing my fingers that my little 5 month old doesn’t catch this thing. […]

Black Bottom Coconut Bars

May 6, 2013

My Grandmother used to make these coconut tarts when I was growing up. They were my favorite thing that she would make. I’m still surprised that a coconut tart really appealed to me that much as a kid. I find that a lot of kids don’t like coconut. Heck, even a good number of adults. […]

These… these were fabulous. I’m a little bias though- Samoas are my absolute favorite girl scout cookie. I never could jump on the whole thin mint bandwagon. The Caramel Coconut Cluster Bars were a dream come true to me. This recipe comes from one of my new recipe books- “Baked: Our 10 Favorite Ingredients” by Matt Lewis […]

Healthy Mounds Bars

January 22, 2013

I’ve recently started a love affair with coconut oil. I went on a shopping spree at vitacost.com and purchased a TON of super healthy seeds, teas, powders, etc. Coconut oil was one of the many items that ended up in my shopping cart. I had never tried it before, but had often seen it used […]
