Bite Sized Nutella Stuffed Mini Chocolate Tarts

Today, I am channeling my dark side. Blame it on an orthopedist appointment yesterday afternoon that sent me home with a creepy black cast reminiscent of Darth Vader’s arm: Might as well embrace the theme. 😕 To match my dark cast and evil mood, I whipped up a batch of dark chocolate mini tart shells […]

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

The Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie. I know some people swear by cold cereal for breakfast… But whenever I eat a bowl of cereal, I always seem to be hungry again less than an hour later. Does this happen to you as well? However, I do like the convenience of cold cereal. Sure, it would be […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Mini Muffins

As I hinted in my Chocolate Guinness Brownies post, there are probably quite a few things about me that, even in seven years of blogging, have never come up and might surprise some people! For instance, I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned on here how much I love to dance—any kind of dancing; I love […]

Copycat Juice Generation Acai Smoothie Bowls

When I visited my younger sister a few weeks ago in New York City, she insisted on taking me to a healthy fast-food place called Juice Generation for their famous acai smoothie bowls she claimed were “the best things ever!” I found this proclamation to be really funny, and if you knew my sister you would […]

The Pink Energizer Smoothie

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. […]

Nutella Granola Bars

Sadly, many granola bars on the market these days are nothing more than glorified candy bars, with as much sugar as a Snickers and a long list of ingredients you can’t even pronounce. But not only is it possible to make a naturally-sweetened granola bar recipe that actually IS healthy, you might end up liking them so […]

Hummingbird Cupcakes

Healthy hummingbird cupcakes. I’ve never been so in love with a cupcake recipe, healthy or not. These cupcakes are moist, sweet, and absolutely irresistible with healthy cream cheese frosting. Perhaps being in love with a cupcake sounds crazy… but just try one and I promise you will completely understand!! Hummingbird cake, which made its culinary […]

Single Serving Cinnamon Roll

Today’s guest post comes from a new friend I met just last week on Instagram. Immediately, I fell in love with not only the beautiful photography on her blog, but also with her catchy—and often humorous—writing style (see below). Oh, and the fact that she has a recipe for single-serving cinnamon rolls… How can you […]

Chocolate Marble Swirl Banana Bread

This is banana bread for chocoholics. With thick ribbons of chocolate swirled into every bite, you’ll never look at banana bread the same way again! Chocolate Marble Swirl Banana Bread 2 cups over-ripe banana, mashed well (480g) 2 tsp pure vanilla extract (8g) 2 tsp white or apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (10g) 2 […]

Oatmeal Muffins

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, […]

Clean Eating Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding

  Without a doubt, the best part of publishing a personal post like my Why I Gave Up Running post is reading all of the amazing responses people share. Seriously, thank you all so much. I’ll try to make the blog a little more personal in the future, although it’s difficult because most of the personal stuff in […]

Chai Banana Bread with Pumpkin Cream Cheese

I can’t keep up with mercurial October… The month started out amazingly, so I was caught completely off guard when it quickly turned dark and painful without warning. Yet suddenly it changed again. Albeit a colossal cliché, the idea that when one door closes another one opens has proven true for me twice now in three […]

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 […]

Banana Pudding

Homemade banana pudding… Did you know that I once competed in a Banana Pudding Eating Contest? Yes, really… Can’t you picture it? It was at Six Flags, and I was with a group of friends. Hungry teenagers, lured by the thought of free banana pudding and Nilla wafers, we all decided to enter. About 3 […]
