Breakfast Ideas for New Year’s Day

Yawn! This year, one of my good friends is throwing a New Year’s Eve party that doesn’t even start until 10:30. So I doubt any of us will get to bed until at least 3… and most people will probably sleep right through breakfast the next day. No matter how late you’re up partying, here are five […]

Sugar Cookie Oatmeal

A big, fat sugar cookie. But softer and chewier, and much more filling! This was the delicious breakfast I made on Sunday, in honor of Christmas. As I prepared my morning oats, the box of  Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea sat on the counter, staring me straight in the face. (See, sometimes a messy counter can […]

My Vegan Christmas

365 days until Christmas! I might need every one of those days to put away all the decorations, food, and boxes from last Christmas. (By the way, it’s 365 days because next year is Leap year.) I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, if you celebrate. Mine was busy, but really fun. On Saturday […]

Sugar Cookie Ice Cream

I just want you for my own. More than you could ever know. Make my wish come true… All I want for Christmas is You! When it comes to holiday decorating, I like to go all-out: sparkly garland hugging the banisters, stuffed snowmen adorning the mantle, no-nonsense nutcrackers standing guard at the kitchen table… Nothing […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

Last night, I made babies. Lots of babies. Lots and lots of yummy babies. Lots and lots of these: Chocolate Peanut Butter Babies. Initially, the chocolate balls were to be a Christmas present for a friend on a gluten-free diet. But then I got on a baby-making roll; now all my friends are getting chocolate […]

Gingerbread Breakfast Cereal

*Heart* I *heart* gingerbread. If pumpkin is the poster child for fall, then gingerbread is winter’s darling. I kept this in mind as I blended up breakfast yesterday morning…   A seasonal twist on my favorite Pumpkin Bread in a Bowl. The following recipe reminds me of eating a thick slice of spicy-sweet gingerbread, hot out […]

Mini Eggnog Spice Cake with Creamy Dreamy Frosting

Aww look, it’s fun-sized! Spice up your life I was in fourth grade when the Spice Girls hit the scene. My friend Jackie got their album for Christmas, and we’d dance around the house to it, wearing crazy outfits and hairdos. (One of the songs was called “Naked.” Jackie’s mom made sure we always skipped […]

Dear Chocolate-Covered Diary…

Chocolate-Covered Everything! Did you know today is National “Chocolate-Covered Everything” Day? I’d planned on posting a spice cake recipe today… but who wants to see spice cake on a day meant for chocolate? Saluting all things chocolate-covered… Homemade Luna Bars The best part of these homemade Luna Bars is their crazy-delicious chocolate coating. Feel free […]

Candyland Healthy Peppermint Bark

Yes, healthy peppermint bark! Candyland! By far, my favorite holiday candy is my Coconut Butter Candy Melties. Apparently, everyone else’s favorite holiday candy is peppermint bark. So I figured I’d combine my favorite with everyone else’s favorite to get something we all can love: When it’s difficult to keep from eating the whole thing before I can […]

Foodie Christmas Gifts!

Holiday Shopping If you’re anything like me, you have a really hard time getting gifts for everyone on your list. My family and friends can easily go buy what they want for themselves. Therefore, I try to make my gifts meaningful, attaching the presents to a memory or shared experience. I hope my family and […]

Hot Chocolate Cookies

Someone take this bottle of chocolate syrup away from me. It’s getting out of control. Really out of control. Imagine: Cookies that taste like hot chocolate! Melting slowly in your mouth like a truffle. Like a rich, chocolatey truffle. And yet these hot chocolate cookies are healthier than you could ever imagine, with absolutely no […]

Win a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker

*Super-happy face* I’m excited so many people like the Secret Peanut Butter Cookies. It makes me enormously happy when someone tries one of my recipes and likes the results. So so happy. A few weeks ago, I was offered the opportunity to make one of you very happy. A company called Tesco Direct is giving […]

Secret Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

What’s better than a vegan peanut butter cookie? How about a whole stack of vegan peanut butter cookies? Mmm yes, that’s better. Much better. If you’d really rather just have one, see this recipe: Single Serving Peanut Butter Cookie. I’ve been a vegan over ten years, which is also how long I’ve been making these […]

Today’s post is very important: Every little bit helps! Through December 16th, an anonymous donor is offering to match every donation—dollar for dollar!—to […]

18 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Happy Friday! Some of y’all have asked me to spread out my recipe posts, not offering a new one every day, so you have a chance to catch up. I am trying… but it’s difficult because there are so many recipes I want to post before Christmas!  For today, I’m still working on the “post a photo for every recipe” project. Now, if […]

Vanilla-Pear Breakfast Cobbler

Breakfast gets fancy. Beautiful Pears I love pears; yet I rarely think to put them on my grocery list. I’ll pick up raspberries for oatmeal, grapefruit for a pre-run snack, bananas for my favorite Chocolate-Chip Banana Bread… I usually skip right by the quiet, unassuming pears. Recently, however, a recipe for pear muffins caught my […]
