{meatless monday} something fun for the holidays! — mini chocolate-dipped lady apples

17 Dec


every now and then, i’m creative with sweets.  i’m not much of a baker, so i don’t keep common baking components around the house – i seldom even have milk in the fridge.  half & half, maybe… anyway, i wanted to try to make some candy-dipped apples of some kind without having to make an extra trip to the store, so this is what i came up with. i bought the apples prior, with the idea of creating something fun with them for the blog, and i had all the other items lying around.

5 Jul

this is not exactly up my typical healthy recipe alley – but if you’re going to go for it, GO FOR IT!

it’s a special occasion, splurge a little!  that whole mentality goes along with my “intuitive eating” lifestyle.  granted, i seldom even buy white flour-based anything, let alone white sugar cookies – but i made these to share.  i had one at home to make sure they didn’t suck, and one at the party… and that was all i needed… for now 🙂
