{recipe} easy chocolate cake

  I wanted to share this cake recipe that I’ve made a few times already, in time for Valentine’s Day festivities.   This is a semi-homemade recipe because it uses a cake mix, and with the addition of the right ingredients, it transforms into a dense, moist and extra chocolaty cake. It’s the ultimate chocolate […]

Grain Free Chocolate Cake for One

Hello friends 🙂 It feels like it has only been a minute since I posted last weekend, yet a week has gone by. I can’t believe it went by so fast. It was raining earlier this week (after I bragged about how it was so sunny during the weekend) so my week started very gloomy […]

Chocolate {Avocado} Cake

Ever since I turned my calendar to the month of February, chocolate has been on my mind. Everywhere I go, there’s chocolate in my face. The stores are filled with chocolate displays for Valentine’s day even before January ended. Since I know I will be enjoying some decadent chocolate desserts this week, I wanted to […]

Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

One of my favorite treats that I made this holiday season was a half cookie and half peppermint bark. I know Christmas is over but I’m not over eating peppermint yet. I’ve made these three times in a span of two weeks. I’m a little obsessed, just a little. I think I will be making […]

What I Ate Wednesday – Chocolate Cravings

I’ve been craving chocolate lately. I’m not craving sweets, but I’m craving chocolate.  I added a heaping tablespoon of dark chocolate powder in my oatmeal bowl and it turned into this black bowl of oats. Halloween color bowl? I added shredded coconut, granola and nuts to the bowl and had myself a healthier version of […]

Double Chocolate Brownies

I had a lovely run at the park this morning. I am trying to run consistently so I can get back my running mojo. I seem to lose running steam whenever I don’t do it consistently. I have been spending time at the gym or hiking this past summer and Fall season seems to be […]

Healthified Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

It has been awhile since I’ve made muffins. So long that I forgot the last time I made them and searched the blog and see the last time I used my muffin tin. Can I just say how great it is to use keywords and search for certain things that have happened in your life […]

Baking is my therapy

My youngest sister Hazel, who is a senior in high school, is enjoying her Spring Break this week. I invited her to have an early workout date with me this morning. She joined me on her first ever Zumba class (and first ever gym trip). The class was different because there was sub today and […]

No Man Hands

“I can see clearly now the rain is gone” Rain Begone   I had that song in my head on my way to the gym this morning. I think the weather does put a damper in my mood. When I wake up and it’s raining, I have less motivation to go to the gym, I […]

Banana Chocolate Muffins

What a great weekend I had. Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes to Chris. He said Thank You to you all. I got to bond with this little one (Jonah, my newborn nephew,  3 days old). His face has a lot of expressions and he has a strong grip too. I let him hold […]
