Kale Brownies

Yes, kale brownies… I promise I’m not crazy. Well maybe just a little bit. When I first started blogging, I loved to see what google searches were leading people to the site. A few of my favorites: Chocolate covered bumblebees Chocolate covered grasshoppers How to turn your boyfriend into a pig Ugliest banana ever Sarah […]

Coffee Cream Brownie Bites

Engagement announcements, marriage announcements, and pregnancy announcements are taking over my facebook newsfeed. Every time I blink, another of my friends gets married. This past Saturday I attended my third bridal shower in the past eight months, which is nothing compared to one of my friends who has gone to two bridal showers and five […]

Batman vs. the Watermelon

Some superheroes battle villains. Others fight injustice. Batman protects the world from dangerous watermelons. Whatever would we do without him? The watermelon was sitting on the kitchen counter when Batman came in and suddenly began barking like crazy. He was absolutely beside himself and just would not stop, so I put the watermelon down on […]

Watermelon Smoothie Recipe

An frosted homemade watermelon smoothie – the perfect way to cool off in the summer heat! I often played hostess for summer parties and gatherings as a teenager, because my family had a giant pool in the backyard that offered an escape from the brutal Texas heat. It was a great location for summer parties or for simply […]

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 […]

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 […]
