Almond Butter Cookies

I will be the first to admit that peanut butter cookies are the bees knees.  What is it about the flavor of peanut butter that makes it so tasty?  I don’t have the answer but I do know that peanut butter will always be my favorite nut butter. But, wait!  Because that is not why we’re here today.  No, today we’re here to show some love to peanut butter’s sister – almond butter.     Before we dive into this recipe, you may (or may not) have noticed that it’s been a while since you’ve received a new recipe for me.  Sometimes I look back upon...

Peach Ice Cream

Fresh. Peach. Ice. Cream … to be exact.  🙂 🙂 🙂     I feel as though I have typed these exact words a few times already this summer but here in NYC we are in the midst of a crazy, uncomfortable, high humidity, horrible hair day, why did I even shower today type of heat wave.  It’s bad.  Real bad. Nate and I usually enjoy a good morning walk in the park during the weekends and when we woke up at 7:00 on Saturday, it was already 82° with 80% humidity.  Are you kidding me here?! It’s pretty freaking unbearable.     When it’s hot like this there’s...

Chocolate Cake

Listen up, friends!  Today we’ve got a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting AND raspberry filling! All gluten and refined sugar free!  A cake worthy of a celebration and it just so happens, that was exactly my intent!  🙂     I made this cake specifically with my parents in mind.  You see, this past weekend they celebrated their 40th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!!!  Pretty awesome, right?! I wish I had some fantastic 1976 wedding pictures to share with you all but the fact of the matter is not many survived … their wedding wound up being a comedy of mishaps – rain,...

Mango Jalapeño Margaritas

Today is a first for The Sugar Habit … a first that I am very excited to share with you!     I have never created my own adult beverage so I didn’t have very high hopes.  Whomp.  Whomp. Good news, though!  These margaritas are a home run!  And I’m not just saying that cause, you know, I made them.  They are naturally sweet, a wee bit spicy, creamy and cool. See, a home run!     So, there is this bar in our neighborhood that specializes in fancified cocktails.  One of them is called the ‘Silver Tongued Devil,’ which features jalapeño infused...

Strawberry Mint Popsicles

All last week I attended a conference in Seattle, Washington – my first time visiting the city and state.  Not only was it one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen, mountains, water and huuuuge trees galore!  But it also offered one of the most enjoyable climates … especially considering it was the middle of July. Highs of 72° and nooooo humidity!  Freaking amazing!   The conference was held at the University of Washington, which is a beautiful campus itself with some incredible views!  Can you see Mt. Rainier in that first picture?!  And the city skyline was...

Flag Cake

Happy 4th of July!  I truly hope that most of you are out with friends and family, grilling up some burgers and hot dogs, snacking on fresh-cut watermelon, indulging in some delicious treats and playing in the sun.  You know, rather than reading this blog.  😉 If you are so inclined to join me today, I’ve got a winning dessert for your Independence Day cookout that is gluten free, refined sugar free and down right delicious!     My Grandma Fifi – yes, Fifi, named after their dog because that’s how my cousin referred to them at a young age 🙂 – anywho, my...

Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting

Happy Wednesday!  I know we don’t usually bump into each other midweek, but I have good reason for being a few days late! First, my school year wrapped up last week and as much as I’d like to say that my co-teachers and I were able to lay back and enjoy our little nuggets for the last few days, it just never seems to work out that way.  We had extra projects going on and our room needed packing up.  Then, our school’s graduation ceremony was Thursday and by the time I made it home, my brain power was at an all time low! And, Nate and I were leaving for Grand Cayman on...

Lemon Cupcakes topped with Coconut Cream Frosting & Blueberries

As we all know, last Monday was Memorial Day, which we also know is the unofficial start of summer! Can I get a whoop whoop?! Nate and I were fortunate enough to head back home to Ohio for my nephew’s 5th birthday! And a good old fashioned cookout. It was an absolutely incredible weekend! We played in a bounce house for – no joke – close to 5 hours, opened gifts, grilled burgers and hot dogs, played red light, green light – it was the best! And sure enough we had a true taste of summer weather … humidity and all! Any guesses on one of the…
