Tiramisu Torte

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

After lots of love on Instagram and Facebook I am finally sharing the official recipe for this healthyish yet super decadent tiramisu torte! Confession: Although I love the flavors of tiramisu I dislike how the texture and layers become very “muddy” and become one homogenous mess despite all the work that goes into each component.

Antioxidant Pumpkin Seed Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies (nut-free, vegan)

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

Serious cookie talk! Did you know Pumpkin Seed Oil is full of vitamins, minerals and healthy fat? It’s suuuuper underrated so I need to spread the word about this wonderful oil! It’s uses are endless (think sauteeing, salad dressing, drizzling on ice cream) but perhaps my favorite use for it is COOKIES. Go figure, right 😉 You may be thinking that the oil is “seedy” or bitter tasting, but in reality it is perfect for […]
