Homemade Dark Chocolate *Revised and updated*

So I have made a few changes to my original homemade dark chocolate recipe and thought I should pass on the updated information. This recipe yields a lot more chocolate, and I feel it tastes even better!  I don’t pour it into a pyrex anymore. Instead, I dish it into small candy cups, to make […]

The Smoothie Cheat Sheet

True Nourishment

For anyone who knows MS, they know that it is an unpredictable adventure. The hard thing about that for me is, I don’t do well with surprises. My life is all about structure and predictability and order. So, as you can imagine, MS doesn’t fit well into that little mold I have made. I am […]

Amy’s Season All – (AIP)

I was getting so tired of having to drag out a million different spice jars in order to season everything that I cook. I have a pretty standard selection that I use for almost everything, so I figured it would make a lot more sense to come up with a “season all” recipe, rather than […]
