Quick Deviled Eggs

Simple, easy, delicious…here’s what I used to eat for lunch when I was still eating eggs, and they only take 15 minutes to make!  Deviled eggs are nutritious and tasty, and although these feature fancy piping, that’s not necessary at all.

Chocolate-Almond Torte

This recipe originated on Epicurious.com and featured grind-your-own almond flour, sugar, powdered sugar, and a larger cake. My version features no sugar, almond flour, and whipped cream. The texture is pure “nut torte”, lightly dense, but not fudge-y.
