The gift of a recipe

For the last few weeks, my family has been experimenting with a no white sugar/no white flour diet, to see if it makes a noticeable difference for our well-being.

It's been a bit of a challenge with my sweet tooth, but it's led to a nice expansion of my repertoire of desserts. :) 

This Healthy Peanut Butter Cups recipe is one we recently discovered that everyone loves. It takes just 5 ingredients (peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, cocoa powder and vanilla) and 15 minutes, and tastes absolutely decadent.

It is my gift to you this week.

I'm reminded of the time, a few years ago, when I met an older man in town who carried copies of his late wife's favorite recipes around with him, so that he could give them to people he met who liked to cook. It was such a sweet gesture, and a reminder of the many simple gifts that we each have to offer.

Do you have a recipe that you especially love and would like to share? Or a quote, or a song, or something else that makes you smile? Share it below, so it can make someone else smile, too.
