Neopolitan Gooey Brownies

Three layers of utter delicious is how I would describe these Neopolitan Gooey Brownies. Although Neopolitan typically consists of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, what I'm about to share with you gives that a little twist.

Cinnamon Sugar Monkey Bread

This Cinnamon Sugar Monkey Bread is not your mamma's canned biscuit, heart-attack served on a plate kind of recipe. Sweet pieces of yeast bread can be pulled one bite at a time and dipped in a sugary glaze or eaten as is. It's a favorite morning meal, but you can enjoy it any time of day!

Vegan Raspberry Zinger Coconut Cake

I'm pulling out all the stops for this love-filled Vegan Raspberry Zinger Coconut Cake. Maybe it's because in my pre-vegan and pre-vegetarian days I used to love Raspberry Zingers. It's odd the things you give up when becoming a vegetarian. Most people think a little snack cake would be vegetarian, but these Hostess Zingers are made with animal shortening. That's what you call a nice way of saying "lard." I've decided I'm a better person for giving those up and now an even happier person for creating a vegan (and gluten-free) way of making the cake myself. I may be vegan, but that doesn't mean my sweet tooth will be denied!

Vegan Cheese and Artichoke Dip

I know this is Valentine's Day and I'm supposed to be posting about chocolate and love but here I am telling you about Vegan Cheese and Artichoke Dip instead. You could call me kooky if you'd like. You wouldn't be the first...and I doubt you'll be the last. I agree that chocolate and love go hand-in-hand, I'm just expanding my list to include this Awesome Cheezy Vegan Dip too.

The latest guest in my Namely Marly Podcast interviews is Victoria Moran. Victoria is a life coach, whole living health consultant, worldwide speaker and author of over 10 books, some of which have landed her on the Oprah Show. Today Victoria is speaking with me about how to stay motivated with those pesky New Year's Goals, and a little about names as well.

Trail Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies

Trail Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies may seem like just one more variation on the myriad already in existence, but I think it's more than that. These are protein-packing cookies, with just enough sweet, and just enough goodness to keep you coming back for more!
