No Chicken Noodle – Get Well Comfort Soup

Pin It!

This no chicken noodle soup has magical healing powers. Magic Soup? One spoonful and you will feel a thousand times better. One spoonful and you can predict the future. One spoonful and you can fly. Except not really the last two. Oh well. I made up the following recipe to use a ton of mushrooms […]

Lots of New Foodie Finds!

Pin It!

I’m working on two new recipes for tomorrow and Thursday. But in the meantime, I wanted to update the “New Product Alerts” page. It’s been awhile! See the updated page here: New Product Alerts!    

French Toast… To Go!

Pin It!

French Toast is now portable!   Take your French Toast to work. Take it to class, take it in the car, sneak it into your little sister’s piano recital… Just don’t blame me if people give you weird looks :-?. Fast Food? When I was little, Burger King French toast sticks were a rare treat. […]

Chocolate Earth Balls!

Pin It!

Environmentalism is a cause everyone should champion. Issues such as global warming, polluted air, and disappearing resources affect all of us, not just the crazy health nuts like me! Today, I’d planned to make globe cupcakes, using this recipe. The holiday snuck up too quickly, though, and I ran out of time. But I couldn’t miss […]

Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread

Pin It!

Guess what… You probably already have all the ingredients to make this: So there’s no excuse not to make it. Lame excuse #1: “But I’m at work right now and can’t leave my office.” Solution: Tell your boss you’re taking the rest of the day off for personal reasons. Better yet, tell him/her you’re going home […]

The cutest post ever?

Pin It!

I love cute things. Maybe it’s because I grew up in Tokyo, Japan: home of Hello Kitty, Super Mario, and world capital of all things super-cute. In any case, I now own the five most adorable animal figurines on what I’m pretty sure is the face of the entire planet. It’s all thanks to my […]

Introducing: Protein French Fries

Pin It!

These are not French fries… And yet… They are just as crazy addictive! Do you get enough protein? Eleven years ago, as a teenaged animal lover, I decided to completely stop eating meat. My nervous mom worried I’d have difficulty getting enough protein, and she made me do extensive research to ensure I’d be a […]

Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Pin It!

These mini chocolate chip breakfast cookies are so wholesomely delicious that you can easily eat them for breakfast or dessert! L is for the way you look at me. O is for the only one I see. C is for cookie. That’s good enough for me. Cookie cookie cookie starts with C. Somehow, I’ve managed […]

Blogging As A Full-Time Job (Part 2)

Pin It!

Breakfast: Today’s breakfast was this recipe: Eggless Breakfast Scramble. See? Proof that I don’t just eat chocolate! It’s an older recipe, with terribly old photos, but I still love it. There are actually quite a few old recipes on the site that I missed when archiving the recipe page, and I’m trying to go back to find […]

A Day in the Life

Pin It!

Normally, the main subjects of my posts are the recipes. I’m actually somewhat shy and don’t like a lot of attention on myself. But many people have asked what I do as a full-time blogger. I do not just sit around and eat cookies all day. (Too bad, ‘cause that would be fun.) I work […]

Big Fat Coconut Breakfast Cake

Pin It!

You look like you could use a slice of coconut cake… A big slice of soft coconut cake… for breakfast! Yes, coconut cake for breakfast. Cake so soft and crumbly and sweet, bursting with juicy pineapple and luxurious vanilla… You’ll feel as if you went to bed and woke up in Hawaii. And then you […]

My Crazy Easter

Pin It!

It started with chocolate. And bunny ears and cupcake liners and flip-flops. (I have to return the flip-flops. Darn you, wide feet!) It also started with rain. Lots and lots of rain, but thankfully Easter itself wasn’t dreary at all. Some highlights: I made these for breakfast: Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes My sister flew in from Boston, and […]

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

Pin It!

These bars might be your new favorite snack. Peanut butter snack bars! Salty and sweet, these no-bake bars taste even better than peanut butter pretzel Luna Bars. But they confuse me: How can a recipe with absolutely no chocolate taste so good? It just doesn’t make sense. You know what else confuses me? Moles. And protons and neutrons […]

My Favorite Easter Desserts

Pin It!

From carrot cake to chocolate… I love the Easter season for many reasons: pastel colors, adorable baby animals (bunnies! sheep! chicks!), the symbolism of renewal and rebirth (both the Christian significance and the rebirth of flowers, wildlife, and springtime—the word Easter is derived from the goddess of spring, Eastre.) And Easter-themed foods: chocolate, carrot cake, chocolate, chocolate. […]

Coconut Cookie Chicks

Pin It!

EAT ME! Do it! If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend this macaroon recipe. I know; you’re probably rolling your eyes at me because I highly recommend a lot of things. But that’s because every single recipe published on my site has been tested and approved by many people, not just me (and not just vegans or health-food eaters, either). I […]

Carrot Cake In A Mug

Pin It!

Carrot Cake In A Mug –  Raise your hand if you like carrot cake. Jump up and down if you’d like a single-serving carrot cake in a mug that takes less than 5 minutes to make and is so healthy you can eat the entire recipe in one sitting. Yes, you really can. Of course you’ll want frosting. […]
