About Salts Kitchen

I write. I eat. And I cook. I write about what I cook and eat. I love finding new foods, being inspired to make something I've never made, and most of all I love feeding other people things that they have never tried before.

Three Layer Peanut Butter Brownies (Raw)

These were amazingly rich and decadent and though I made them myself, I couldn’t believe they were raw (and vegan and sugar free and gluten free). Everyone’s favorite Sal-Pal left town and for her going away bash I had to … Continue reading

Salted Chocolate and Nut Triangles
