I forgot to post my new recipes that I tried yesterday, so here they are a day behind ….

#1 – One of our most favorite go-to-desserts EVER and y'all it's healthy!  You will kiss me on the lips next time you see me if you make this.  I'm not even making that up.  We made it for our Supper Club this past week and they all loved it!


1 cup extra-virgin coconut oil

3/4 cup carob powder

1/4 cup raw almond butter

1/4 cup unheated honey

1tbsp. vanilla

Place all ingredients in a glass container and set in simmering water until melted if needed.  Mix together well.  Spread thick paste mixture on a piece of buttered parchment paper; allow to cool in fridge or freeze.  Remove and serve immediately.  Makes 1 1/4 cup

#2  CROCK POT EGG BRUNCH CASSEROLE I found this recipe on none other than all of our new obsession … Pintrest!  It was so easy and perfect for my family being in town this weekend!  How wonderful to go to bed with the crock pot on and wake up to a fabulous breakfast.  Aaron said he woke up at 3am to the most wonderful smell in the house!

I will tell you that I had every intention of putting in veggie bacon and just forgot to buy it.  You could use any kind of meat you wanted.  🙂  I also forgot that Aaron had bought dill for me, so it was kinda lacking in seasoning.  Oh and I couldn't find the pepper that night so it didn't get any.  You see how I cook … if I can't find it, I just leave it out!  So, it tasted fabulous, but I realize how much more fabulous it could be if I had put everything in it!

#3 Last but not least I tried another recipe from one of my new favorite recipe blogs and I must tell you that it wasn't my favorite, BUT I think I'll use a yellow onion instead of white next time.  Aren't white ones the most potent?  It was very oniony and my kids barely touched it.

Anyhow … maybe you'll like it!  I might try it another time just to make sure, b/c I think it has great potential for something for my kids to use as dip besides regular ole' Ranch dressing that I never buy.
