armelle_blog It's that time of year. Chocolate everything! We are out of school for a few weeks, which means we are trying to keep busy so we don't go nutty! We took a tour of my favorite local chocolate company #VChocolates, and my kids suckered me into getting them these cute bunny pops. How could I resist?!

armelle_blog Caught playing when he should have been cleaning. When I asked him why he wasn't cleaning, he said. "I am a robot. Robot's don't clean." In his best robot voice. #armellehouse #mywestelm #westelm #hapetoys 4d

armelle_blog A few of the pretty spring colored French Macarons my students made at my cooking class a few days ago @orsongygi. So tempted to eat one, but my family happily polished them off. #frenchmacarons 5d

armelle_blog I'm trying to stick to my no sugar plan a little while longer. I have a feeling if I give myself the full go ahead at this point, I would be a bit out of control! Made this clean "Strawberry Pie" the other day using a cocoa almond date coconut crust, and strawberries with a teeny bit of honey and lemon zest. 🍋 That lemon zest made it good. Real good!
Cocoa Almond Coconut Crust
1 tbs good quality cocoa powder (I like Trader Joe's or dutch processed cocoa powder)
15-20 large pitted fresh Medjool dates
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 cup raw unsalted almonds
pinch of sea salt
1 tablespoon natural almond butter (ingredients should only say almonds)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Place all of the ingredients in a large food processor, and pulse until finely chopped. Takes about 30 seconds to a minute. Press the pulsed ingredients into a pie dish, and let it set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Store in fridge.
Place 1 lb of sliced strawberries in a bowl. Drizzle with a teeny bit of honey, and 2 tsp lemon zest. Stir and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Place strawberries inside "crust" and enjoy! If you won't eat the whole pie right away, perhaps make smaller portions in a small bowl or ramekins for individual servings for the crust won't get soggy. #cleantreats #eatingwhole #cleaneating #cleanstrawberrypie #armelle30days

armelle_blog My favorite tiny little 2"x 2" books from @socialps came today! I printed a book for each of my kids with pictures of them straight from Instagram, and they fit perfectly into eggs for the Easter baskets! How cute and tiny, right?! I ordered mine Monday, and they arrived super fast! So, here's your reminder, you can still order in time for Easter! They are NOT paying me to promote this (but, maybe I need to work on that) , just love their little books! What are your favorite things to fill your Easter Baskets? #PrintStudio #easterbasketideas 1w

armelle_blog St. Patrick's Day feast green menu tonight. Green tortellini with pesto sauce. Broccoli. Kale Caesar Salad (recipe on the blog!). Green Rolls. Green grapes. Gold chocolate coins. Wasabi peas. Green mint chocolate chip cookies. The kids loved it! Lots of talk of leprechauns at dinner tonight. As a child of parents from foreign countries, I tend to go overboard for my kids on holidays and birthdays. Making up for my childhood perhaps. I love seeing them so excited, and living it with them! #greenfood #stpatricksday 1w
