Stuffed Apples (Paleo)

Ha! I promised I would deliver a Fall recipe for this week! I tell no lies 😉
Actually, I made this for the first time back in January. But I gotta tell you, apples taste so much better in the Fall.
I dunno, maybe I’m biased (I’m not a winter person). But it just… does.
So anyway, I’ve been waiting 8 months to share. Enjoy!

Carrot Cake Pudding

Normally, I don’t post during the week. Today, however, is an exception. Why? It’s my blog’s 1-year birthday! Yay! And no birthday is complete without birthday cake. In this case, carrot cake. Carrot cake pudding to be exact. Yup, carrot cake without the flour, butter, and sugar.

Sorry for the not-too appetizing picture by the way. Some things I’m still improving on. Rest assured though, it tastes amazing.

It’s strange, because I wasn’t sure if this blog was going to even last a month. And here I am a year later. Here’s to another year!
