Hi, I’m Ciarra, I am the recipe creator and photographer behind this website and as you may have guessed, I am obsessed with peanut butter and chocolate–usually together but honestly, I’ll take them anyway I can get them. I’m an actor living in Los Angeles with my boyfriend, five dogs and cat. Yes, you heard that right, five dogs! Not too long ago I realized my obsession with desserts wasn’t doing me any favors in life and in the acting world. I was feeling tired, sluggish, oh, and I noticed that it wasn’t just the camera that was adding pounds. I knew my nightly pint of ice cream was the cause but I wasn’t about to give it up, so I set out to make a healthy a batch of brownies using whole food ingredients and then I never looked back!
Born and raised in Nevada, I left my small town of Boulder City (that’s where the Hoover Dam is) to the big city of Los Angeles where I knew absolutely no one to follow my dreams of being an actor. When I’m not auditioning or working, I’m here developing new recipes for you, and for me because I eat the desserts but mostly for you because I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for all of my loyal followers, subscribers and pinners!
Desserts, acting, puppies… it’s a good life.
These are our first two fur babies, Sharkie and Charlie. We call her Sharkie because she has a massive over bite and looks like a shark. Charlie was adopted from a shelter where he spent the first year of his life abused by his owner and locked in a kennel. When we got him, he had never been on a walk before, didn’t know how to climb stairs and was never potty trained. It’s been two years and he is still very timid around people he doesn’t know but he loves walks and long snuggles with me and Daniel (that’s bae).
