Warm Brussel Sprout & Cranberry Slaw

Refried Beans!!!

Homemade Refried Beans

In honor of Cinco de May I thought I would share my favorite refried beans recipe. To say I have an addiction to this stuff is an understatement. I currently make it at least once a week. It is really simple and quick and keeps well throughout the week. I use the beans to make wraps to take to work for lunch, to eat with my eggs in the morning, or to use as a dip. The best part is when you are starving and out of time, if you have these beans in the fridge, you always have a meal. They are filling, healthy, and delicious.

Chocolate Almond Butter Soo GOOD!!!

Chocolate Almond Butter

It was then I set out on a mission to create something that would satisfy my craving for my old favorite treat. At first I wanted to make it with hazelnuts like the original, but after a while I began to think that I might like an almond butter version better. I mean honestly….almond butter is already so good on its own…how could adding chocolate to it be a bad idea?
