The inspiration for this comes from Glen's Chocolate Sauce. You will need 1/2 cup + 2tbsp of this sauce for the spread. I have altered the recipe ingredient amounts just slightly and redid the directions. Here are the nutrition facts for both recipes: Here is my twist:

Monster Muffins

This is my SCD Monster Cookie tweak. I wanted something with a bit more substance for Christmas Eve and I do love Monster Cookies, so I felt that this was a natural progression. Enjoy! Leave a comment with your thoughts and/or any adjustments if you try them.

Turkey Meatloaf

My first SCD Thanksgiving meal was a success. The sauce pictured in the image is the cherry pear sauce located on the site. I simply roasted my veggies in honey, mustard powder, salt, and olive oil along with the turkey meatloaf (same time, stirring occasionally). Veggies include: celery, broccoli, string beans, and spinach.
