Copycat Juice Generation Acai Smoothie Bowls

When I visited my younger sister a few weeks ago in New York City, she insisted on taking me to a healthy fast-food place called Juice Generation for their famous acai smoothie bowls she claimed were “the best things ever!” I found this proclamation to be really funny, and if you knew my sister you would […]

Cheezy Baked Polenta Fries

The Ultimate Non-Fast-Food Meal: Cook up some of my favorite Portobello Mushroom Burgers and serve with grilled onion rings on the side. Maybe grill slices of zucchini or red peppers while you’re at it. And, of course, you will want fries with that, right? Today’s Polenta Fries photos and recipe are courtesy of a talented […]

Homemade Entenmann’s Mini Chocolate Donuts

Just 35 calories each… including the frosting! Entenmann’s Mini Chocolate Cake Donuts have been on my “healthy makeover” list for a long time.

Cookies & Cream Pudding Pops

Growing up, my sister and I went through a phase where we decided it would be completely fantastic to own a pickup truck. We hatched this brilliant (or so we thought) idea on an uncomfortably-humid Philadelphia summer’s day, and our logic was that the back of the truck could be filled with water, turning it into […]

Red Velvet Brownies

I am one of those people who initially resists change. But when I finally dip my toe into the water am thrown into the water against my will, I swim with a vengeance, making up for lost time. Thus was the case when I first joined facebook (a year after everyone else), when I got […]
