My Halloween Costume

Click for the winner of the Healthy Chocolates’ Giveaway. Costume Party My friend went all out for Saturday’s Halloween party. Seriously, all out. When we arrived, there was a grim reaper statue next to the door… only it wasn’t really a statue. As I knocked on the door, the statue reached out and grabbed me […]

Hot Apple Crumble Bars

Sweet and buttery hot apple crumble bars. They are guaranteed to quickly disappear at parties! It’s all the deliciousness of apple crumble, packed into a bar! I’ve done raspberry, mixed berry, and cherry pie versions, but the apple version for last night’s Halloween party might be the best flavor yet. Although I’d first planned to bring my Healthy […]

Monster Mint-Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Roar. My husband, the monster: Did you know I was once married to Frankenstein? It’s true! Long before Bella Swan made it fashionable to marry a ghoul, Frankie and I had a one-night stand. I dressed up as the Bride of Frankenstein for Halloween and created a stuffed monster “husband” to carry around all night. […]

Healthy Chocolate Bars? (giveaway)

Mmmmmm chocolate… Just before Halloween is a good time for a chocolate giveaway, right? (Um, when is it ever not a good time for a chocolate giveaway?) I’m usually unimpressed by snack foods that claim to be healthy simply because they’re fortified with vitamins or extra fiber. Calcium-fortified potato chips? Coke Plus? Why not just […]

Decorating my New Home

I hate stereotypes… But every now and then they ring true! Last night I went to watch the Rangers’ game at some friends’ apartment, and I ended up falling asleep on the couch. When I looked for breakfast this morning, do you know what I found in the guys’ fridge? A lot of beer. And not […]

My New Home

But first, breakfast: Warm and delicious Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal. On a whim, I made my boatmeal with coconut butter as the fat source. As it turns out, coconut butter pairs really well with pumpkin. Not that I expected any different; coconut butter pairs really well with everything! And this single-serving recipe never fails me. I also […]

The Candy Corn Milkshake

I love Halloween. Haunted Houses, carving pumpkins, Creepy Carrot Cakes… I have freakishly-strong nails that grow like weeds, so one year I painted them to look like candy corns. They looked so awesome! (Of course, just one day after all my hard work, my pinkie nail decided to break. Eh, what can ya do?) This […]

Homemade Luna Bars!

Since beginning this blog, I’ve created many flavors of Homemade Larabars. But when, out of curiosity one day, I googled homemade Luna bars, I was surprised to find zero relevant results. Really? No one had made these yet? It was definitely time to change that. I don’t usually buy Luna bars, but every now and […]

By Popular Demand…

Who wouldn’t demand to see more pictures of this face? No, not my face. This face: And this face: Batman’s face. And ears. Remember those ears? Yes, he is officially Batman now. While I was debating what to call him, he got used to Batman! (My sister says that when she comes to visit, she […]

Gluten Free Chocolate Lace Cookies

These deliciously delicate chocolate lace cookies will be the hit of your next party – and they just so happen to be accidentally gluten-free!  Have you ever thought about trying a gluten-free diet? Like Atkins in the 90s, the idea of “going gluten-free” has swept America (and beyond). If you haven’t tried a gluten-free diet, […]

Healthy Recipes: Baked Goods

For tomorrow’s post: I’m trying to figure out whether to post another cookie recipe or a chocolate-bar recipe. Any preferences? I’ll work on both posts today, so tomorrow I can publish whichever one you choose. In the meantime, I’m still working on the “post a photo for every recipe” project. Now, if you click on my Healthy […]

Chocolate Cookies… filled with Pumpkin Pie!

Repeat after me: Y-U-M. Now repeat a few more times. Yum yum yum. Yum yum. Yum. These cookies are soft, rich, chocolatey… and filled with pumpkin pie! Oh my. If you own the cookbook, Vegan Cookies take over your Cookie Jar, you’ll probably remember one of the yummiest-looking cookies in the book: their peanut butter […]

Meet my new Puppy!

Yesterday morning’s weather was abominable. Abominable. Like the snowman. Thankfully, breakfast made up for the weather. Warm, cinnamony Snickerdoodle Oatmeal. Dear spellchecker, “cinnamony” is too a word. Don’t you know anything?? Usually, rainy days are reserved for staying inside with a warm drink and a good book. Yesterday, however, I had somewhere special to go. […]

Chocolate “Banana Split” Butter

Woah. It’s like a banana split in a jar. Crazy Nut Butter Flavors I once posted a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Peanut Butter. At the end of that post, I asked for your nut butter flavor ideas. One reader (hi Kara!) went crazy with the question, offering all sorts of fun flavor ideas, from carrot […]
