Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream

It’s the comfort food of ice cream – Like a warm oatmeal cookie, straight out of the oven, splashed with milk and dusted with cinnamon sweetness. Imagine your favorite cookie churned into sweet, creamy ice cream and scooped high onto a cone. Your tastebuds say “oatmeal cookie,” but your eyes will know better. Oatmeal Cookie Ice […]

Naked Pizza

We started our day at the Union Square Farmer’s Market: Whenever I visit New York City and walk through Union Square, I gaze longingly at the famous farmer’s market, wishing I actually lived in the city and could thus take advantage of the greenmarket’s offerings. This year, therefore, it was fun to pretend I was […]

Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Baked Oatmeal

Let’s talk chocolate. And peanut butter. And chocolate. Did I mention chocolate? Good News! Research is now saying that eating dessert for breakfast can actually be healthy. This is great news for me, as I’ve been eating dessert-type breakfasts for years and had no plans to stop. Today’s breakfast, for example, was chocolate peanut butter baked […]

The Best Ice Cream Ever

I’m moving! From now on, my address will be: 516 East 6th Street, New York. Oh wait. That just so happens to also be the address of Lula’s Sweet Apothecary and its cashew-based ice cream flavors such as caramel swirl, peanut butter chocolate chip, butterscotch, soft-serve cake batter… Coincidence? Above: Mocha Chip and Cream Soda […]

Restaurant Review: The Peacefood Cafe

Updated page: 17 Ways to Eat Oatmeal (I’ll also get back to the recipe posts tomorrow. I’ve missed posting them, and I know most people don’t visit this site for vacation recap posts, so I’ll try to intersperse them.) With Friday treating us to rain, it was the perfect time to visit the Museum of Natural History. There’s […]

Coconut Soft Serve & Caramel Sauce

Yesterday, we found the coolest place: That’s coconut soft-serve, above, and it was absolutely fabulous! Nestled into the Hell’s Kitchen area, Kyotofu is a modern Japanese restaurant and dessert bar with exquisitely-presented food. Although the establishment isn’t vegetarian, some of its offerings are completely vegan, such as two seasonally-rotating flavors of soft-serve ice cream. We […]

Healthy Eating: New York City

Guess where I am… If you said Hawaii, you’d be… Wrong . I’m in New York for the week. My friend Jessica and her boyfriend rent a tiny NYC apartment, and they’re being gracious enough to let me crash on their couch (and commandeer the fridge). It’s pretty crowded and is going to get even […]

Homemade Chocolate Soft Serve

Just 4 simple ingredients to make this: Swirly chocolate soft-serve. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably seen the idea of whipping frozen banana in a vitamix or food processor until it resembles the exact texture of soft-serve ice cream. (If you add a fat source, like peanut butter, it tastes pretty similar to […]

Cake Batter Dip

The sprinkles made me do it. Sprinkles can be very convincing. Yesterday, one of my friends threw an impromptu party, and we were all supposed to bring a dish to share. Since a lot of people came straight from work, there ended up being an overwhelming number of packaged hummus containers, spinach dips, and pre-cut veggie trays. […]

My date… at a gas station?

But first, breakfast: I spread peanut butter on one of these: Banana Oatmeal Squares. (Plus a simple veggie scramble, unpictured.) I played around with the ingredients and proportions of the boatmeal, devising a new version of the recipe that yields 10 servings instead of just one. Or you can freeze the leftovers and have one ready as needed. […]

Healthy Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Healthy cookie dough ice cream? That means you can eat twice as much, right? Right???!!! Is there anyone in this world who doesn’t love cookie dough ice cream? Melty vanilla ice cream with bite-sized pieces of soft, unbaked cookie dough packed into each creamy scoop. What’s not to love?!

Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars

If chocolate were a food group… We could eat brownies for breakfast, cookies for lunch, hot fudge sundaes for dinner. And dark chocolate crunch bars all day long. Yes, that would be a nice life. Nestlé doesn’t currently offer a darker variety of their popular Crunch bars, which means they are missing out. This dark-chocolate […]
