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 […]

The Pink Energizer Smoothie

Pin It!

Last week, I did something I was never able to do while living in Texas: Pack a bag, hop on a train, and find myself in New York City less than 3 hours later. I spent the week in New York, the weekend in Philadelphia, and was back in my own apartment by Monday morning. […]

Mounds Bar Chocolate Coconut Pudding Cups

Pin It!

For more than half of my fourth grade existence, I went through a phase where I was completely obsessed with Jello pudding cups. Every day, I’d find a different flavor packed into my lunchbox—anything from chocolate, to butterscotch, to cheesecake, to classic vanilla. I loved them all. Today’s recipe reminds me of those Jello pudding […]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

Hello from Upstate New York, where I’m currently up to my ears in chocolate eggs, chocolate candy, and chocolate bunnies (never a bad situation in which to find oneself). With a very large and very Italian extended family, food is always plentiful when we get together. On Saturday morning, figuring it’d be a good idea […]

Oatmeal Cookie Dough Dip

My mornings used to look like this: Drag myself out of bed before sunrise, grab a quick snack while lacing up my sneakers, then rush out the door—rain or sun or snow—to run 7 or 8 miles. My mornings now look like this: Wake up and lazily contemplate getting out of bed for a while […]

Carrot Cake Crumble

This is what happens when Easter is around the corner and you have carrot cake on the brain. I’m testing the recipes for the cookbook, and all I can think about with each recipe test is, “Wouldn’t these doughnuts be fun as a carrot cake version? Wouldn’t this cheesecake be fun as a carrot cake […]
