Coconut Flour Almond Butter Truffles

So I was doing a pantry clean-out recently, when – to my horror – I discovered SEVERAL unopened bags of fancy flours. SEVERAL. I’m talking coconut, almond, garbanzo bean – you know the kind. And I know exactly how it happened, too. When creating content for clients or other publications, I sometimes have to purchase […]

COCONUT LIME SHORTBREAD COOKIES

Today I thought we’d take a trip back down into the blog’s archives to revisit one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes.

BANANA COCONUT CRUNCH MUFFINS

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone had a nice weekend. Despite the torrential downpours and gloomy weather here in northern Florida, I found plenty of things to keep myself busy inside.
