Oh, Yes, Eat Fudge and Be Healthy!

A 5-star recipe you will not want to miss

There’s a secret ingredient in this recipe that helps replace the dairy in this vegan, fudge-like treat. It’s avocado!

An important cooking note here to be mindful of: the key to a firmly set but fudgy texture is using bittersweet chocolate with minimum 60% cacao. Lower percentages will result in fudge with a scoop-able ganache-like texture instead of bars.

Homemade Ice Cream (the no fuss way)

What screams summertime? ICE CREAM! Plain and simple.
So that’s what we have here for you – our very best (easy) ice-cream recipe that will take no time to imagine and create, and even less time to devour. We promise you that everyone from all ages will flip for this fun treat.

You may have a backyard fire pit, you may have access to a beach to make a bonfire, or you may just use oven/stove top; these tasty s’mores can be made any way you want!

THE BEST ROAST CHICKEN EVER!

an exclusive article from Laurie Burrows Grad, grandmother extraordinaire…*
A delicious recipe that says: ‘happy first day of spring’!
The key to this dish is to have the butcher cut out the backbone of the chicken to “butterfly” it. To butterfly a whole chicken means to remove the chicken’s backbone so you can open the chicken like a book, or a butterfly, and lay it flat – another term also used is to ‘spatchcock’. This is a basic recipe. If you would like to embellish it with rosemary or other herbs, feel free!
