Skinny Chocolate Mini Muffins

Pin It!

The beauty of mini muffins is that you can have more than one…   Of course “more than one” so often translates into more than two. Or more than three. Or more than four. Oops . Chocolate Mini Muffins (makes 22-24) 1/2 cup spelt or all-purpose flour (65g) (or Bob’s gf plus 1/4 tsp xanthan […]

Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cake

Pin It!

Once upon a time when I was five, I decided to make breakfast for my mother. I woke up really early, tiptoed into the kitchen, and perused the available supplies. Out came the pancake mix, the eggs, the milk… everything I’d seen my mother use to make pancakes. I poured the entire box of mix […]

Chocolate Chai Tea Oatmeal

Pin It!

I made the mistake of walking outside yesterday. And then immediately turned right back around. No. Just… no. I love how they feel the need to write “very cold” under the temperature. As if seeing –12 didn’t already make that abundantly clear. There’s something about abysmally-cold weather that screams comfort food. And this healthy breakfast […]

Oatmeal Muffins

Pin It!

I’ll admit I don’t always eat a “perfect” healthy diet. Especially in December, filled with so many holiday parties and family gatherings, it’s not uncommon for a few too many drinks and way too many Christmas cookies to sneak their way into my life. Not to mention the homemade chocolate fudge, the bourbon pecan pie, […]

New Years Healthy Foods: 7 Lucky Recipes

Pin It!

I had way too much fun writing this post on New Years healthy foods. All the symbolism reminded me of high school English class… which I actually enjoyed. (Yes, really. Where else can you write a 7-page research paper comparing Shakespeare to Star Wars?) Below are seven healthy recipes that, thanks to their symbolically “lucky” […]

Thank you for all of the well-wishes on my What’s happening in my life post. I know my posts were a bit sporadic while I was in the process of moving, but starting next week I have BIG PLANS for the blog. (You’ll hear more about these big plans soon!) Meanwhile, one of my goals for this […]

An Update On What’s Happening In My Life…

Pin It!

Readers have been asking about my references to leaving Texas, and since I promised to make the blog more personal anyway, it’d probably be good to elaborate. If you’re only interested in recipes, feel free to skip this post; the recipes will continue soon. I’ve always been a passionate person. This can either be a […]

Mexican Chocolate No Bake Cookies

Pin It!

If you’re looking for a tried-and-true holiday cookie recipe that gets rave reviews and  yields a batch large enough to take to a party… Do not make these. The raw cookie batter is so addictive that, if you’re anything like me, you’ll find it completely impossible to stop eating the cookie dough by the spoonful. […]

Candy Cane Pudding Pie

Pin It!

We elves try to stick to the four main food groups. Candy. Candy canes. Candy corns… And syrup! Representing three of Buddy the Elf’s four main food groups hopefully means this pudding pie would earn Will Ferrell’s stamp of approval. You did it! Congratulations! World’s best cup of coffee pudding pie! Great job, everybody! It’s […]
