Happy Sunday loves. I’m about to start Day 1 of my honeymoon adventure in Australia, BUT before that I’ve got a Round Up Sunday for you that I just had to share. I think we’ve covered our bases for cookies to bake this holiday season (if you missed them, check out all 41 here).

Apparently you guys are just as obsessed with brownies and bars as I am. We did some surveying earlier this year and many of you requested MORE of them, so I thought I’d put together a little list where you can pick and choose what to make next.

What a whirlwind of a week! We had an 8-hour shoot yesterday creating some awesome new recipe videos to share, and we planned out our recipe calendar through February. I’m feeling incredibly excited about all the new recipes I have planned for you all in 2018.

But for now…it’s Thursday, and I’m leaving the country in two days (OMG!).

Lately, I’ve been loving sitting on my emerald green velvet couch with my heating pad and writing blog posts. I play the latest discover weekly on Spotify and jam out while I edit photos and write whatever comes to mind. This is my process. Today I’m sitting here dreaming about how incredible these nachos were…

Healthy gingerbread loaf made with whole wheat flour and packed with heavenly spices. This will make your house smell amazing and is perfect for brunch.

This weekend was LOVELY and I hope yours was similar.

On Friday, we stayed in and watched the movie Moneyball. I hadn’t seen it before but fell in love with the storyline.

Saturday was a busy day for us as many of you already know that we’re leaving this coming weekend for our honeymoon! I’ll be gone for 3 WEEKS in Australia & Hawaii so Tony and I spent A LOT of time doing research, booking hotels, and trying to figure out how we were going to make the most of our time there. Finally later Saturday evening we ventured out into the tundra for ice skating at the Park at Wrigley. If you haven’t been and live in Chicago, I highly recommend it (they have hot cocoa and food there too).

Adorable paleo gingerbread cookies made with coconut and almond flour. These grain free and gluten free cookies are the perfect treat for the holidays!

It’s day 3 of cookie week and I’m loving today’s spicy paleo gingerbread cookies!

When I was young I never really appreciated the deliciousness of gingerbread cookies. I was never one who enjoyed molasses cookies either. The flavor of molasses just wasn’t in the cards for a girl obsessed with pumpkin pie.

The softest grain free snickerdoodles with hints of cinnamon + sugar in every bite. These will be your new go-to snickerdoodle recipe!

I’m laying on our couch watching Tony eat a huge plate of my latest creation: vegan tofu nachos (recipe comin’ soon). The best part is that he has no idea that I made them with a healthy cheese sauce made from nuts, or that the ‘meat’ is actually tofu. This is exactly why I love doing what I do: I love helping people eat healthier and more nutritious without sacrificing taste.

And sometimes you need a cookie that’s the best of both worlds: both sweet and a little more nutritious.
