Mocha Cashew Butter

There are few things that make me more happy than a delicious creamy cashew butter and coffee! Hence why I had to marry the two. This Mocha Cashew Butter is so simple to make and is as decadent as any dessert but so healthy! Win/win in my book! So what are we waiting for? Lets make it!

Mocha Cashew Butter-
1 Cup Roasted Cashews
1 Tablespoon Espresso Beans
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 Teaspoons Cacao Powder
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Add all ingredients to the food processor and blend until smooth!

Easter Egg Cookies

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays! I just love the pastel colors, the fresh crisp smell of spring in the air, and of course the adorable treats! These Easter Egg Cookies speak to my 6 year old self!

Easter Egg Cookies-

1 small package of whopper eggs
1/2 cup of butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp milk

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla. Mix until well blended. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mix, alternately with the milk, to the butter mixture, mixing until well blended. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Shape the cookie dough into 1 inch balls. Do not press them down. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges of the cookies are lightly browned. Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool for 2 – 3 minutes. After this time press 3 small Easter eggs into the middle of the cookies. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

1/4 Cup Whole30 Compliant Mayo
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

Cheesy Olive Bread

I was on my way to the market the other day and I was reciting my list over and over because why would I write it down? It went a little something like this... olives, cheese, bread, wine. Olives, cheese, bread, wine. Then I literally LOL'ed! This list is my life. What more could we possibly need.

Thus, this delicious Cheesy Olive Bread was born. It is rich and delicious. The salty olives make the perfect bite with the ooey gooey cheese and crispy bread. Of course I paired it with a glass of Cab for the final touch!

Cheesy Olive Bread-
1 Loaf French Bread
1/2 Cup of Mayo
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (Softened)
6 Ounces Pimiento Stuffed Green Olives (Sliced)
1 2.25 oz. Can Sliced Black Olives
8 Ounces Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
3 Stalks Green Onion (Chopped)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Mix mayo and butter together in a large bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Spread mixture onto bread. Bake for 20-25 min or until melted and bubbly.
