Chocolate Banana Mug Cake (Paleo)

Girl gets diagnosis. SIBO. Girl freaks out about restrictive diet. Girl gets creative and realizes it’s not so bad. Girl invents mug cake recipe. Bliss. Lovely little fairy tale, no?

***Cookbook Teaser Alert***- Banana Bonanza Parfaits

Have you seen the movie Love’s Kitchen? It’s a somewhat cheesy “rom com” about a chef and a food critic. If you are bored one day and are into this kind of thing, check it out on Netflix. What is my point? Well, in the movie they prepare these amazing trifle desserts. A proper English […]
