Walnut Butter

Back during Brunch Week, I was given a large bag of delicious, raw walnuts.  Having some leftover after toasting them for my Pear Sundae, I decided to make some delicious walnut butter.

Banana “Ice Cream” {+ a giveaway}

Not gonna lie. I discovered this genius through Pinterest.  In fact, it may be my single favorite food discovery of 2012.  I love ice cream!  The only problem is, the scale doesn’t.  I try not to be too scale conscious, and more health conscious, but this is the best of both worlds!

If you haven’t heard of this phenomena yet, allow me to introduce you to this incredible creamy, vegan, single-ingredient ice cream: Frozen bananas.

Raw Date Honey

Today’s recipe is so easy yet such a great kitchen staple to have on hand.  Date honey isn’t really honey at all, yet is a natural sweetener that will sweeten any healthy bread, muffin, or waffle recipe.

My first experience with dates, aside from fruitcakes, was in Israel.  One was served to me frozen as a dessert.  Let’s just say I like Date Honey much better!
