If there’s someone in your life who loves the (irresistible?) combination of peanut butter and chocolate, might I suggest you forgo the traditional Valentines’s Day wine and box of chocolates ...
It’s a New Year and everyone, including (especially?) me, feels compelled to eat a little better. So it’s especially nice to do so when it doesn’t *taste* healthy. This recipe is adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie’s Five-Minute Chocolate Oatmeal. You won’t believe how rich and decadent oatmeal (of all things!) tastes — it’s like warm […]
