If you want to be my best friend, send me chocolate. Not for special occasions, not for a certain time of the month. Nope. It’s good any day of the week. Of course it has to be clean, and the darker the better. Besides eating it straight from an awesome bar, the next best thing to do with chocolate is to bake with it. Creating a gluten free chocolate cake recipe that makes you go “mmmmm” is incredibly satisfying.

This recipe combines two things that I love: 1) a clean food that can be a meal or a snack, is easy and fast to make, and stores well, and 2) nostalgic childhood favorite foods. I know what you’re thinking – this accountant can’t count. That’s several things. You are right. 🙂 Quiche was a […]

For Brad, chowder is tied in to many a childhood memory due to his mom’s chowder skills. And both of us love salmon and curry. With this recipe being such an easy and quick one to throw together, it’s become a recent favorite.

Few things get me as excited as a good chowder. Soup is great, but sometimes you want something with a little more punch. I came across a traditional seafood chowder recipe that looked really good.
