Gluten-Free Vegan Strawberry Coconut Cream Tarts

My "end of work day" routine usually entails: a half-ass workout, cooking dinner, eating dinner, showering, and then getting my lazy on (aka the best part of my day).

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I love early mornings. Every morning, after my alarm sounds, I sleepily walk to the kitchen and slowly make myself a coffee. I watch the gorgeous glow of the sun gently creep above the horizon. I physically and mentally do nothing other than sip my coffee and day dream as I patiently wait for it… Continue reading Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread
