I parboiled the potatoes, let them dry and then coated them in extra virgin olive oil with sea salt and baked them until crispy. I roasted tomatoes, onions and lots of garlic in the oven with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and red pepper flakes. I blended the tomato sauce with a tiny bit of apple cider vinegar and some butter for richness. I cooked the shrimp in butter and served it all with some lemon!

Breakfasts, Lunches and Dessert

Potatoes roasted in extra virgin olive oil with salt and pepper.

I whisked the veggie sauce with some eggs and poured it over the roasted potatoes. I baked until it was set and it was super yum!

Chocolate granola bars made with oats, walnuts, flax seeds, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, sea salt, cacao powder, butter and chocolate chips. I topped the bars with some extra melted chocolate chips.

This was my first take on this recipe. I thought making some Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Bars would be fun! These were delicious, but I rolled them too thin and they are a bit dry. I will try again and add a touch more butter and some coconut milk. I am also going to add some baking soda next time to try to achieve a better texture.

Chocolate Yogurt Cups!

These were so yum and super easy!!

These cups feature three of my favorite products: The Coconut Cult yogurt (the literal best yogurt ever!), Hu Kitchen chocolate gems and Oat Haus chocolate granola butter!

I melted some chocolate gems with a bit of butter and used the melted chocolate to line my silpat muffin tray. (Pro tip: I froze the silpat for about 30 minutes before adding the chocolate. This ensures you can use the chocolate to cover the bottom AND sides of the muffin molds.) I chilled the chocolate covered muffin mold in the fridge for 10 minutes. Then I added some strawberry yogurt and topped it with some chocolate granola butter. I chilled the muffin molds for 10 more minutes and then added another layer of yogurt and granola butter. I topped them with some of the melted chocolate and chilled them for a few hours. The result: deliciousness!!!
