Homemade Snickers Ice Cream Bars

In this homemade Snickers recipe, rich caramel ice cream is topped with a layer of peanut butter then coated in a thick layer of chocolate. Snickers ice cream bars have layers. Do you know what else has layers? Ogres. Ogres have layers. And onions have layers. And parfaits. And cake. If you haven’t seen Shrek, you are […]

Chocolate Greek Yogurt Pie

This chocolate Greek yogurt pie is rich and creamy, with a custard-like texture. The yogurt makes it almost taste like you’re eating a chocolate cheesecake, but at the same time you are getting protein, calcium, vitamins, and a healthy dose of probiotics… you could even eat it for breakfast. Hey, chocolate for breakfast is healthy. Dr. Oz […]

Dreamy Dark Chocolate Fondue

I was completely convinced Kate Middleton would have a girl. There’s a recipe called “Pink Princess Cake” going in my cookbook that I decided to take out and post today… or really last week because I guessed the baby would be born July 14th. Obviously I have no future as a psychic. Or a gambler. […]

Homemade Cereal Milk

So what exactly is cereal milk? The idea is truly brilliant. A wildly popular drink created by pastry chef Christina Tosi of the famous Momofuku Milk Bar in NYC, cereal milk is exactly what it sounds like: an ice-cold milk drink that tastes like your favorite breakfast cereal. See? Brilliant! After all, what child doesn’t look forward to […]

Healthy Snack Recipes

One of the most common requests I receive is for “no bake” healthy snack recipes that can be made without a stove, without an oven, and without a microwave. Normally, each time someone asks for ideas, I respond with a long list of healthy snack recipes from my site… but then the commenter has to […]

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Homemade Portobello Mushroom Burgers! I’m not going to tell you that my boyfriend took a bite out of one of these grilled portobello mushroom burgers and declared it to be the “best burger ever!” And I’m not going to tell you that my younger sister, who worked at a fast-food restaurant for three years and […]

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

Side note: There were so many questions about a coconut butter sub in the Banana Pudding recipe from the other day that I figured it’d be best to answer the question here: I’ve only used coconut butter in the recipe, but the first thing I’d probably try as a substitute would be raw cashew butter or macadamia butter. […]

Banana Pudding

Homemade banana pudding… Did you know that I once competed in a Banana Pudding Eating Contest? Yes, really… Can’t you picture it? It was at Six Flags, and I was with a group of friends. Hungry teenagers, lured by the thought of free banana pudding and Nilla wafers, we all decided to enter. About 3 […]

Healthy Oreo Milkshake

When I was playing soccer back in high school, I’d sometimes wake up with really bad leg cramps during the night, most likely thanks to a rigorous training schedule that included two-hour practices each day after class and a bike ride home because I didn’t have a car. Upon asking around, I was surprised to […]

Healthy Haagen Dazs Ice Cream Recipe

Have you ever wished the Haagen Dazs ice cream recipe could be healthy? 6 ingredients. NO added sugar. And it really does taste like Haagen Dazs! As a self-professed ice cream addict my whole life, I’ve been extremely disappointed over the years by every non-dairy ice cream on the market (and I’ve tried them all). […]
