Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

Are you starting to think about foods for Valentine’s Day?  You can add these Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles to the list.  I also have some Strawberry Creme Truffles and some Gluten Free Red Velvet Donuts you can try.  These yummy truffles only contain 6 ingredients and they are delish!

I added some salt to the tops of mine, but that is totally an optional ingredient.  Not needed, but nice if you like that sweet/salty combo. These truffles pack a punch of chocolaty flavor.  There is chocolate in the inside, and outside.  My chocolate loving husband gave these a thumbs up.  I hope you enjoy them too.

Maple Coconut Popcorn

I made you some Maple Coconut Popcorn! Popcorn is one of my girls’ favorite snacks.  Ever since we got our air popper, it’s been super easy to make too!  Normally, I just make a maple cinnamon version.  However, the other day, I had some leftover toasted coconut from my toasted coconut vanilla smoothie, so I added that to the mix.  Wow! This Maple Coconut Popcorn came out so delicious!  So good that I had to share with all of you.

My kids claim to hate coconut, but they tore this up.  Not a single bit leftover. I hope you enjoy it too!  If you don’t have an air popper, you can also pop this on the stove.

Lentils with Roasted Beets and Lemon

One of the best things about blogging is that you get to have some amazing experiences.  This past weekend was one for me.  I was invited to go to Napa, California for US Dry Pea and Lentil Council. In case you didn’t know, 2016 is the International Year of Pulses.  If you don’t know what pulses are, they categorized as beans, dry peas, chickpeas and lentils.  We spent the weekend at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Napa learned just how versatile and nutritious these pulses are! I got to make some fabulous recipes that I hope to share with you over the next few weeks.  The first recipe I am sharing was my most favorite dish on the whole trip.  It was Lentils with Roasted Beets and Lemon.  The original recipe was a little more complicated, so I created a simplified version for you.

This dish is healthy, very easy, vegan and gluten free.  I hope you love it as much as I did!  Before I get to the recipe, I would love to share some of the other things I made while there.  If you are following me on Instagram, you may have seen me post some of these pictures already.
