Brookie Recipes

If you're ever in the mood for both a brownie and a cookie but can't make a decision, it's definitely brookie time. A brookie is a combination between a brownie and a cookie, combining the best of both worlds. You can even customize a brookie with a swirl of cinnamon, raspberry jam or caramel, top it with some salt or other fun additions to satisfy your cravings.

Orange Cake

While I'm not a huge fan of adding a lot of citrus to savory foods, I love me some citrus cake and desserts. The other day I had a lemon-blueberry bar that was pretty much Heaven in your mouth, and I will always love orange-chocolate flavor combinations. Both are my favorite flavors of ice cream/gelato, too.

Easy Fat Bombs

If you've never made a fat bomb, you're in for a treat: they're quick, easy and delicious. While they might seem daughting because they are full of fat and meant to keep you full on a ketogenic way of life, you can always modify them to work with your own lifestyle. The best thing about fat bombs is that they essentially all follow the same pattern: you blend all of their ingredients together, pour them in bite-sized molds and freeze them. In a few hours, they're ready!

Favorite Savory Dips

Strictly speaking, dips aren't actually dessert material unless they're of the sweet variety, but for those who prefer savory bites, a dip can make a fantastic end-of-meal treat or a snack on its own with your favorite dippables, whether they be pita chips, crisps, pretzels or vegetables. I've always been a dip lover and have enjoyed dips my whole life, so I'll often take a good savory dip over a sweet one any day. Ranch and French onion are some of my all-time favorites, and both are so much better when made with fresh ingredients. 

Blender Cupcakes

Are you a fan of cakes made in mugs? How about quick fat bombs, cheesecakes and other fast desserts? If so, you're like me, so welcome. I LOVE sweets, but I don't love the carbs or calories, not to mention the time it takes to put many sweet dishes together. So when I read about these blender cupcakes that are not only easy to make but also keto-friendly, I figured why not try them?

Girl Scout Cookie Concoctions

If you're like me, you might already be tired of cookie season! Girl Scouts are everywhere asking for you to buy cookies and who has the heart to say no? I always say yes if I can but wow can they get expensive AND sugary! At one Girl Scouts stand I saw they were actually selling with a restaurant where you can order shakes made with the cookies themselves! Can you believe it?

Fruit Compote

Fruit is one of my all-time favorite desserts. I could probably only eat fruit-based desserts for the rest of my life and be okay with it. I love a good compote but the best compote has to be one that's pear-based. If you've never had warm pears before, it's something you have to try at some point in your life.
