Guysssss. Can you believe that there’s only about 6 weeks to go ’til my wedding?

I have to admit that planning our wedding has been a weight of anxiety, excitement and anticipation hanging over my head the past 6 months. While I’m certainly looking forward to our day, I’m most looking forward to just being married. You know or whatever married people do. Netflix and chill? Travel the world? Slurp noodles like in Lady and the Tramp?

No bake cheesecake layered with bites of grain-free brownie. Use any brownie you’d like, or just enjoy the cheesecakes on their own!

Truth be told I’ve never considered myself to be a cheesecake lovah. I’m more into pies, cookies, or basically anything else that’s sweet.

But when my friend Gina sent me her Skinnytaste Fast and Slow Cookbook a few months ago, I knew I wanted to share these easy, mini no bake cheesecakes with you. In Gina’s cookbook, she calls them shooters and serves them in adorable shot glasses.

The best brownies I’ve ever eaten: tahini brownies. No butter, flour, oil or refined sugar. These paleo, gluten free and grain free brownies are simply incredible with REAL, wholesome ingredients!

While I was in Israel last November, I consumed the most tahini I had ever had in my life. The hummus (or often pronounced WHOOO-MUH-S) was one of the best things I’d ever eaten. Granted I have never been to Greece but this stuff was creamy, rich, and with a slight bitter tang from the freshly ground tahini.

After eating tahini for over a week with various dishes like roasted pumpkin, bread, meatballs and more, I became addicted. And even more so when I found out that Trader Joe’s sold tahini (aka sesame seed butter) for less than $5.

*places all TJ’s tahini in cart and runs*

The BEST flourless Black Bean Brownies made with heart-healthy avocado and wholesome, real ingredients. Absolutely delicious!

A little update from me: I haven’t been able to give the blog the love it deserves. You may have noticed that I’ve been taking time off from doing my Friday Favorites because we’re launching a new healthy living website that’s been taking up most of my time. To top it all off  I’ve been testing cookies for 4 days straight in preparation for an upcoming cookie week. YOU GUYS ARE GONNA FREAKING LOVE IT.

Imagine fudgy paleo brownies made with pumpkin, maple syrup, coconut flour and almond flour! These easy, healthy brownies are the ultimate fall treat.

A big hello from Minneapolis, MN! I’m here working on a BIG BIG BIG project that’s set to launch January 2017. I don’t think I could have a busier next few months, between decorating our new home, redoing my personal blog, launching a new project, client work AND finishing up my cookbook proposal, I am feeling THE HEAT. However, I’m incredibly happy that I have a boyfriend who loves and supports what I do.
