gingerbread bliss balls

Recipe: Gingerbread bliss balls

These gingerbread bliss balls are a great treat to make in the holiday season. This is mainly because unlike actual gingerbread, you don’t have to rely on baking nor decorating skills.

Recipe: Zucchini & carrot brownies

Back when I reintroduced oats in […]

Because I have no desire of consuming regular ice cream any time soon (the dairy and sugar combo just kill me), I’ve been making my affogato with frozen coconut cream. I haven’t added any […]
