The Best Dessert Ever!


Just about every time I come up with a new dessert I claim it to be the “best dessert in the world.” I seriously mean it this time. I just don’t know what could be better than this: vanilla wafter s’mores! It has everything I desire in a dessert: cookies, chocolate and marshmallows! Like most masterpieces, I did not set out to make them.

My vanilla wafers have been one of Merrick’s favorite cookies for years. I whipped up a batch for him at his request. Then my daughter wanted to roast marshmallows. You can see where I am going here….I added a few organic chocolate chips and the rest was history!

Click here for the cookie recipe! Then just add your roasted marshmallows and few chocolate chips. And volia, the best dessert in the world is done!

(if you don’t have time to make it to Whole Foods for organic marsh mellows, head over to Walmart. Their store brand does not contain food dyes!)

Acai Bowl Simplified


I have been making acai bowls for 2 years now. I am more obsessed with them than ever. I have gotten my recipe down to a science. It is so simple and it always turns out perfect! The secret is the liquid to frozen ratio. There is nothing worse than a soupy acai bowl! The majority of the time I top my acai bowl with just a sliced banana, sliced strawberries and chia seeds. If I am really hungry or I am having it for diner, I will add granola and almond butter. I like to make sure my bowls have at least 400 calories so they keep me full 3-4 hours. Let me know what your favorite acai bowl recipe and toppings are!

Acai Bowl (Simplified)
  • 1 packet of frozen acai (I use Sambazon and prefer the sweetened variety)
  • 2 frozen banans
  • 3 TB water
  1. Run your frozen acai packet under running water for 30 seconds to let it thaw out just a bit. This will help it to blend much easier!
  2. Place 3 tb of water in the bottom of your blender. Break up your acai as you add it from the pouch. Add your 2 frozen bananas. I like to break them in half to help the blending process.
  3. Turn on the blender and blend until smooth. I have a vitamix so I like to use the tamper to really press the bananas into the blades. This cuts the blending time which is important because you want to be super quick to keep the mixture really cold and thick.
  4. Empty contents into a bowl and top as desired.

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins


I love it when my friends request I come up with new recipes. My super fit cross-fit BFF asked if I could come up with a Paleo Pumpkin muffin. “Of course!” I replied! All I did was take my pumpkin muffins and replace the oat flour with almond flour, raw sugar for honey and added eggs. They are super moist and delicious!

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins
  • 1.5 cups blanced almond flour
  • 1 cup organic canned pumpkin
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  1. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients.
  2. Mix with a hand mixer until well combined.
  3. I used a small cookie dough scooper to portion them out into a nonstick mini muffin tins. These cooked for 15-18 minutes.
  4. You could also use paper liners and bake in a regular sized muffin tin. These will bake for approximately 25-30 minutes.
  5. *always stick a toothpick in the middle of your muffins to test for doneness. If the toothpick is clean, they are done!
