No Campfire Required S’mores Bars

Smores 3

Memorial Day (and, for those of us north of the border, May 2-4 weekend) has come and gone, which means one thing… it’s officially unofficially Summer! And after that winter, everyone’s favourite season is even more exciting than normal.  Beaches, barbecues, steamy long days and gorgeous warm nights– Summer has a lot to offer. And while we […]

Guiltless Carrot Cake

Guiltless Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is one of the great loves of my life. It’s a tough world out there for carrot cake. WIth all of the competition and hubbub from the chocolate and red velvet cakes of the world, carrot can sometimes get overlooked. But it shouldn’t! It’s moist, it’s satisfying, it’s rich, and when done well, […]

Lightened Up Samoas- DOAFFG Girl Scout Cookie Series

Lightened Up Samoas!

Last week, I debuted my Skinny Girl Scout Cookie Series with my low-cal take on the chocolate peanut butter classic, The Tag-a-long! But it’s a new week, and time for a new cookie.. and this one’s a doozie.  Lightened up Samoas! My absolute favourite Girl Scout Cookie, the Samoa (or the Caramel Delight, as cookie-eaters […]

Skinny Tag-a-longs! DOAFFG Skinny Girl Scout Cookie Series

Skinny Tag-a-longs

Girl Scout Cookie season. Once a year, women all over the country summon all of the strength they have to avoid the little girls in green selling boxes of temptation. We dodge them at the grocery store. We run from them outside of the bank. And don’t even get me started on avoiding them at […]

96-Calorie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

96 Calorie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

  During a recipe brainstorming session yesterday, I tried to come up with the naughtiest, most crave-worthy, hardest-to-make-healthy desserts around. What ended up on my list? Cheesecake. Cheesecake was, like, numbers 1-5 on my naughty list. The creaminess, the decadence, the richness… the unparalleled texture of a truly good piece of cheesecake. So I thought. […]

Half the Bad, All of the Taste Chocolate Chip Cookies

Half the Bad, All the Taste Chocolate Chip Cookiescookie5

We want our loved ones to make healthy choices… but some are easier to convince than others. No matter how enthusiastically you present your 14 year old son with your roasted veggie & quinoa salad, he probably won’t be terribly excited about it. And as thrilled as many of us are with clean desserts like […]

Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Quinoa Blondies

Dark Chocolate Chip & Cherry Quinoa Blondies

“This is the best healthy dessert you’ve ever made.” THAT is what came out of my guy’s mouth after he ate one of these blondies. That is BIG. I make skinny peanut butter brownies and protein cookies and skinny german apple cake. But these blondies got the fanfare last night. They’re sugar-free (minus the chocolate […]

Skinny Mini Not-So-Red Velvet Cookies

P1160132

Dessert can be the most unsatisfying part of a healthy-eater’s day. I mean, oranges are great and everything, but they aren’t exactly the ooey-gooey-chocolatey-goodness that we all crave…. which is why I love to create ‘skinny’ desserts. Skinny desserts like my Skinny Mini Not-So-Red-Velvet Cookies. These little beauties have that decadent, punchy, chocolate kick of […]
