Lectin-Free Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie

Pecans are my new obsession. And I don’t even think I knew they existed before I moved to the US, more precisely to Texas. If you ask me, they are the tastiest tree nut out there, and you might already know how much I love home made pecan butter.

Sweet Potato Hummus with Roasted Garlic

Ok, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I made this amazing sweet potato hummus that is finger-licking good, and the bad news is that I might be sensitive to sweet potato. I know, not bad news for y’all, unless that means I’m not going to play with sweet potato as much as I used to.
