Chocolate Waffles on Pretty Plates


I made these chocolate waffles for breakfast today. I prefer a hearty waffle, as opposed to the light and fluffy kind.…so these were perfect. I topped them with maple syrup and blueberries.


dry ingredients

  • 3/4 cup almond flour

  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp salt

wet ingredients

  • 5 large eggs

  • 1/3 cup cashew milk (or almond milk or coconut milk)

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or honey)

  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

    Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Combine the wet ingredients and whip together in separate bowl. Combine the wet and dry together and mix well. Pour onto a greased preheated waffle iron until done.


From The Ashes


This used to be a chocolate tart, now it’s my From the Ashes Chocolate Cookie Crumble Pudding…ish. I made the tart and it collapsed and fell apart so I put the rubble (cue the trumpet) in a bowl and ate it while I lamented my bad fortune. It was no joke delicious. Improvisation. Flexibility. Lemonade out of lemons. Life lessons learned in the kitchen.

Rosemary Pecan Bark


“Rosemary is the smell of deja vu and the after breath of nostalgia. Her gift is the faint scent that teases and vanishes, leaving you longing for something you can’t quite name, and with memories that crest and crash, pulling you gasping into their undertow.” Maia Toll from The Illustrated Herbiary

I love the combination of rosemary and chocolate, and this bark is the perfect vehicle for both. Just a few ingredients- cacao, coconut oil, fresh rosemary, vanilla bean powder, Himalayan salt, doTERRA rosemary oil and pecans. Melt the coconut oil, add the cacao powder until it is just the right consistency , add remaining ingredients to taste and preference. If you have doTERRA rosemary oil, add a drop or two to the mixture. Spread on a parchment lined cookie sheet and then refrigerate until solid. Break into pieces and you are there.
