Happy New Year!
The new year is upon us and like everyone else, I’m wondering what happened to 2014. It flew by, but it was a great year.
I’m grateful for 2014 and excited for 2015. This year was full of great things…
Like pie of course and healthy things like Avocado Pesto Hummus
and my new obsession with zucchini noodles:
I also did a lot of things I didn’t document on the blog, like when I went to Philadelphia and ran a half marathon
That was tons of fun.
I also went to weddings, hung out with friends, went wine tasting, got better at crossfit, got better at my job. So many wonderful things, all that weren’t documented anywhere. I’m ok with that. I took a step back from blogging this year, and I’m happy with that decision.
This isn’t the end of Foodologie. No, no. Foodologie is alive and well, but I’m hoping Foodologie will change in 2015.
After all, change is good.
So let’s celebrate change and the coming of a new year with a treat, something simple and sweet:
Delicious and naturally sweet, dipped in dark chocolate then sprinkled with chopped pistachio and sea salt. It’s decadent and delicious, as the New Year should be.
Dates Dipped in Chocolate with Pistachios and Sea Salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used 60% cacao)
1 tsp coconut oil
1/4 cup pistachios, finely chopped
1 tsp coarse sea salt
Place your dates on a parchment paper lined dish.
In a bowl, melt together chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave. Put it in for 20 seconds, then stir. Repeat until melted and smooth.
Dip dates into chocolate, then place on parchment paper. Sprinkle with pistachios and sea salt. Chill for a few hours, then serve!
I haven’t had them yet but I bet they’ll go perfect with champagne.
I hope this recipe is indicative of what Foodologie will be in 2015: fun, simple and delicious.
Happy New Year! I wish you the very best in 2015 and thanks so much for reading!
