Candy Bar Cupcakes

My fun weekend plans: This past Saturday morning, I woke up, packed as much as I could into my little blue car, and drove to my cousin’s house… 22 hours away. I knew I’d be without my baking supplies but wanted to publish at least one Halloween-themed recipe before the holiday this year. Therefore, last […]

The Healthy Fruit & Yogurt Breakfast Bowl

A super easy breakfast recipe! I laugh when people leave angry comments on my blog, complaining my recipes are too simple, like this is a bad thing. In reality, it’s my goal to offer ideas and recipes that don’t require a Ph.D or a bunch of obscure ingredients. I want the recipes to be as […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Frosting Shots

This mint-chocolate cream is great for any of the following: As a frosting for cakes or cupcakes For peppermint ice cream sundaes or brownies As a rich and decadent pudding or mousse To make friends with leprechauns! For a St. Patrick’s Day dessert, try it on my Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes. But let’s get back to […]

Creamy Coffee Fudge Frosting

Look closely… What do you see in this photo? Do you see… A. unicorns and rainbows? B. flying puppies? C. Brownies iced in thick fudgey frosting, without ANY butter or sugar? Hopefully you see the third choice: a decadent coffee fudge frosting recipe that is made without powdered sugar and without butter or shortening. Yet […]

Strawberry Smoothie Popsicles

Fill in the blank: Bronze, silver, and __________ Green. Green? Yes, green. If you hope to win Olympic gold, you’d better start by eating green. And red and orange and yellow. In other words, just eat one of these popsicles. Each little pop supplies over 50% of the RDA for Vitamin C and gives you […]

Why I’m no longer a vegan

I like burgers too much. Mmmmm burgers… But wait! Of course today is April Fool’s Day, and the burgers are actually whoopie pies. Mmmm chocolate burgers. Who needs meat when you can have chocolate??   Hamburger Whoopie Pies (makes 12 circles) Based on these: S’mores Whoopie Pies. 1/4 cup milk of choice scant 1 tsp vinegar […]

Key Lime Pie Parfaits

Mmmmm Florida… Soft, sandy beaches. Cool ocean breezes. Sunshine. Sunshine. Sunshine… And key lime pie. I often think I should move to Florida. Some of my happiest childhood memories are from visiting my grandparents’ home in West Palm Beach. On those vacations, we did everything you’d typically associate with Florida living: splashed in the pool, […]

S’mores Whoopie Pies

What’s black and white… And smothered in gooey marshmallow fluff? S’mores Whoopie Pies! A few weeks ago, my first attempt at s’mores whoopie pies went terribly awry. So terribly awry that I won’t even post a photo. Let’s just say they looked more like whoopie pancakes than pies. I wanted to give the experiment another […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Mousse

What if I told you this creamy chocolate mousse is healthy: This velvety chocolate mousse is so rich and so thick that anyone who tries it will swear it must be full of heavy cream and calories. But it’s not. See those two chocolate-filled glasses? I ate them both. Joey doesn’t share food. Katie doesn’t share chocolate. […]

Chocolate “Banana Split” Butter

Woah. It’s like a banana split in a jar. Crazy Nut Butter Flavors I once posted a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Peanut Butter. At the end of that post, I asked for your nut butter flavor ideas. One reader (hi Kara!) went crazy with the question, offering all sorts of fun flavor ideas, from carrot […]

Super-Thick Strawberry Milkshake

I don’t know what season it is. First it’s cold, and my body says: Girl, please give me some Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal. Then the very next day is bright and sunny; over 100 degrees again. Yesterday was one of those hot days, which meant the canned pumpkin in my fridge didn’t receive any love. […]

Girl Scout Cookie Larabars

I could do hot yoga in my backyard. Note: I said could, not would. I tried hot yoga once and hated it. It was just so… hot! I don’t like feeling sticky and sweaty, and therefore hot yoga is not my friend. Also not my friend when it’s hot? The oven! Lately, I’ve pushed the […]

Blueberry Ketchup???

Does this situation sound familiar: You’re in the grocery store, ready to pay. But which line to choose??? I feel like I always choose wrong when it comes to picking a grocery-store checkout line. Without fail, I’ll end up in the longest line every time. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing. It gives […]

Chocolate-Strawberry Hugs

I am speechless. And that doesn’t happen often. I can’t believe the response to the post on My Big Decision. Over 300 of the sweetest, most heartfelt comments (and facebook messages, emails, and tweets), and each one made me smile more than the one before it. No wait, that’s not true. They all made me […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Fudge

Guaranteed, you’ll never again look at pb&j the same way. One of my friends summed up the following recipe perfectly: “It’s like eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich… in fudge form!” PB&J Fudge 2 tbsp peanut butter 2 tbsp coconut butter or Homemade Coconut Butter very scant 2/3c berries (I used 80g strawberries. You can also […]
