Spaghetti-Squash Chili

Why do people think fast food has to be unhealthy? When I got home from class, yesterday, I was hungry, so I wanted something that could be thrown together quickly. But that didn’t mean sacrificing health for convenience. In truth, this meal came together faster than I could’ve even driven to the closest McDonald’s: Spaghetti […]

Microwave Lemon Cake

I was never big on lemon-flavored desserts. (Hmmm, might it have something to do with the fact that lemon doesn’t exactly pair well with chocolate?) But, after reading the Single Lady Cupcake post, a few commenters asked about a lemon version of the single-serving cake. Enter Meg L. to save the day! On Sunday, she […]

Does Harry Potter like Sweet Potatoes?

Are you excited about the new Harry Potter movie? I am! A few of my friends and I started an HP-watching marathon, where we’ve been getting together once or twice a week to watch the first six movies in preparation for the seventh (which comes out on November 19th). Last night I invited them over […]

Baby Oatmeal Cakes

Yesterday’s snack: Two mini boatmeal cakes topped with cinnamon swirl peanut butter! Recipe: Baked Oatmeal Cake For One Times the above recipe by two, and you’ll get my snack. Two oatmeal cakes are better than one, right? For the miniatures, all I did differently was use two 1/2-cup ramekins (any oven-safe dish will do) in […]

Big Changes for my Blog

I’ll talk more about this in the coming week. Meanwhile, so I’d still be able to have a voice if things get wacky, I did something I swore I’d never do… Yup. I’ve sold out and am now on Twitter: Follow me! Changes have come to my appetite too. I finally craved a salad again. […]

I ate Candy for dinner

Do you know someone who “hates” vegetables? I’ve always had a sneaky suspicion that people who claim they “don’t like vegetables” simply don’t know how to properly cook them. Honestly, would you like vegetables if your veggie repertoire consisted of canned peas, overcooked broccoli, and ketchup? But, if given my dinner from last night, I’m […]

Baked Oatmeal for One!

Can breakfast get any cooler than a personal baked oatmeal cake? Baked Oatmeal Flavors: Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal Cinnamon Bun Baked Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Baked Oatmeal (reader favorite!) Oatmeal Raisin baked Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal Birthdays will never […]

Single Serving Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Until yesterday, I’d never tried baked oats. Could that really be true? Me?? With all of the Healthy Oatmeal Recipes? Yes, somehow, it’s true. Baked oatmeal has been on my list for a long time, but that “to make” list is kinda lengthy. Thankfully, I finally got around to it… and now I am kicking myself […]

It’s time to Hug a…

Since November is VeganMoFo (Vegan Month of Food), what better to hug than something vegan? To participate: All you have to do is take a photo of yourself hugging something vegan. Then blog about it and send me your link. I’ll include you and a link to your blog in a special post. Non-bloggers, feel […]

A Peanut Butter Snackie

But before snack, we probably ought to have dinner. Everyone knows you’re supposed to finish all your veggies before you get dessert, right? (Did y’all ever have “backwards days”? My sister and I used to get so excited whenever our mom would declare a backwards day where we could eat dessert before dinner.) As dinnertime […]
