Gluten Free Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Gluten Free Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I recently baked up a batch of my Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies and had a friend who cannot eat gluten ask if I could put together a gluten free version of the same recipe, since she is a huge fan of both coconut and chocolate (who isn’t?). Of course, I couldn’t say no to a request that involved a recipe challenge and spent a little ... Read More »

Nutella Fudgsicles

Nutella Fudgesicles

Chocolaty fudgsicles were always one of my favorite popsicle flavors growing up. I made a huge mess almost every time I ate one – getting chocolate smears all over my face and my shirts – but since I wasn’t old enough to do my own laundry at the time, that was just part of the fun.

Mocha Coconut Bread

Mocha Coconut Bread

My local Starbucks has a Mocha Coconut Frappuccino on the menu as one of their summer blended drinks. The frappuccino is a combination of coffee, chocolate and coconut and – for a coconut-lover like me – it is a very good combination. I don’t want an icy frozen coffee drink every day, however, so I played around with these flavors myself to create a Mocha ... Read More »

Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

Chocolate muffins can be tricky to make. Many chocolate muffins don’t have enough chocolate flavor to warrant the name. Other chocolate muffins are too sweet and rich to really be called muffins; they are really just decadent cupcakes without the frosting. Chocolate muffins should not be too sweet, yet should still have a deep chocolate flavor. These Chocolate Blueberry Muffins fit the bill perfectly, and ... Read More »
