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

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 […]

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 […]

Four Ingredient Ice Cream

Smooth. Creamy. Sweet, drippy ice cream, cascading into a delicious pool of vanilla. Yeah, it’s winter. But I can’t keep this dreamy recipe to myself for the next four months. And actually, I really like eating ice cream in the winter. One of my favorite memories is of a Christmas my family spent with relatives […]

Puppy Pictures

Gloomy. If you look it up in a dictionary, you might see a photo of our weather these past three days: cold, windy, rainy.Gloomy. My cold-fighting weapons include: A big, warm bowl of Five-Minute Chocolate Oats. And: fleece pants, fluffy blankets, and hot showers. (Hot showers are the best!) Batman’s cold-fighting weapon:   The Costco […]

Her birthday also falls close to the holiday, and therefore we held a special birthday dinner for her at my parents’ […]

Gingerbread Peanut Butter

Home Alone, Love Actually, Elf… I have a giant stack of Christmas movies all ready to watch. One of my favorite parts of December is watching as many Christmas movies as I possibly can. (Another is listening to holiday music on the radio. Does anyone else think “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” is the […]
