In the spirit of Valentine’s Day I baked a heart shaped cake. Boom. Who’s hungry?
Happy Sunday everyone. Hope the sun is shining and warming your soul.
I’ve been drooling over these flourless recipes all over the net these days and decided to whip up a batch this morning.
Introducing my version of Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins!
What you need:
1 medium banana, ripe
1 large egg
3 tbsp honey
1/2 cup PB, make the bad boy heaping
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips of choice
* I used semi sweet. You can also use mini chips since they are mini muffins. But if you’re craving chocolate, go big and use regular size. I did!
What you do:
Preheat oven to 400F. Prep a mini muffin pan by greasing it with coconut oil, or cooking spray. I used mini muffin liners because they are adorable. Set aside.
In a blender, combine all ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Blend on high until smooth. Once blended, stir in chocolate chips with a spoon.
Using a tablespoon, scoop batter into your prepared muffin pan. Filling each cavity 3/4 full. You should be able to get about 20-22 muffins.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the tops are set, springy to the touch. Or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Because they are small, make sure to watch them closely. Time will vary with oven. Allow muffins to cool about 10 minutes before diving in.
I’m heading away to the mountains with friends this weekend and decided to make my homemade pasta sauce with meatballs for everyone. It’s always a crowd pleaser and enjoyable to make!
These recipes are without measurements which makes them even more special as even though they’re always different, the end result is always the same – delicious! Made from the heart and past down from Great Grandma, to Grandma, to Mom and then me.
Here are the sauce basics:
Truffle oil to finish
Pasta noodle of choice
And the meatball basics:
Fresh ground pork and beef
Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
The rest is up to you. I hope you’re inspired to create your own delicious meal from the heart.
From my kitchen to yours, enjoy!
I’m developed a new love for scarves. More specifically big, warm, wool scarfs. And flannel ones, too. The thicker and warmer, the better. It’s like walking around with a cozy blanket wrapped around your neck. Only it feels more like a warm cozy hug.
Topshop is to blame for this new love. They have a wonderful selection of fabulous wool scarves that won’t break your budget (if you are able to follow one).
The Cable Faux Fur Pom Scarf is my favourite. And of course you can get the matching toque!
I’m ready for winter and look forward to getting all bundled up in these great finds. Functional and fashionable!
It’s been way too long since I last saw these amazing artists. Many years of being a fan, it’s hard to pass up these chances. Tonight I rekindle the flame. If you haven’t had the pleasure of tapping your foot to their beat – get on it.
You won’t be disappointed.
Sometimes you just need a bowl of fresh strawberries. With a mug of hot water with lemon and honey, it’s the perfect combo to help sooth a headache, which I’ve been fighting off all day. I’m hoping it’s just the weather and her ups and downs. Either way, this little treat has done the trick. Nothing fancy, just a simple pleasure.
Happy Sunday everyone.
