Paleo Cherry Brownies

Did you know that it’s Cherry season? Yup – Northwest grown sweet cherries are usually available for 6 to 8 weeks spreading from June to August!  So get some while you can!  I was lucky to have been reached out to check out some cherries from Northwest Cherries.  I love me some fresh in season fruit and veggies so I was all in.  Besides eating them fresh, I also thought- these cherries would be so delish with some chocolate!  Hence, this Paleo Cherry Brownies recipe was born.

Paleo Mexican Chocolate Pudding with Bacon Hearts

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and there is nothing that says “I love you” more than chocolate and bacon. Well, maybe only the second part if you live in my house. But seriously, enough with the sugary chocolates in heart shaped boxes! Who wants those, really?!

Paleo Coconut Caramel Brownies

I don’t usually bake. I’ve always been good at it, but it just never seems quite as fun. To me, baking is the flip-side of cooking: cooking is all organized chaos and anything goes, while baking is rule-heavy and chemistry reliant. So when the words “I’ll bake you something!” came out of my mouth as a bribe to get my supervisor at work to help me, I got a little scared when I realized I’d have to do something I hadn’t done in years — and this time, do it Paleo.

February. Roses, cards, hearts and chocolate. Oh, and my birthday month! It’s the shortest month and my birthday is two days after Valentine’s Day, which is great because my boyfriend doesn’t forget what day is my birthday.  But not great so great because my birthday celebration gets combined with Valentine’s Day. So, I decide I’m going to make the whole month my birthday month!

The “Back to School” shopping season is over and it’s all about Halloween in the stores. That means candy galore! Snickers, Mounds, Milky Way, Kit Kat at every corner.
