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 […]

Pumpkin Pancakes

I love getting recipe requests. My list of things to make is now nine pages long… not exaggerating. Included on the list are ideas such as: Nutella Cheesecake Squares, Dark Chocolate Banana Bread, Oatmeal Crème Pies, Coconut Layer Cake, and Cookie Dough Waffles. Without a doubt, the most-requested recipe over the years has been for […]

Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Marshmallow Cream Frosting

While pumpkin might reign king in the world of internet food blogs, it just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the yams or sweet potatoes. Consider this recipe Thanksgiving in a cupcake. Although… I’m pretty sure the pilgrims didn’t have marshmallow frosting back in the day. 😕 Minor details. If you wish to take it one step further […]

Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

These chocolate chip mini muffins are so soft and chewy it’s almost like eating chocolate chip cookies in the form of a muffin.   Chocolate chip cookies > muffins. Actually if we’re being honest, chocolate chip cookies > pretty much everything else. Hope you enjoyed your math lesson for the day. Flourless Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins […]

Healthy Pumpkin Pie

Healthy pumpkin pie!! When you move around a lot as a child, family becomes extremely important. You learn to rely on each other whilst navigating a new city or country, making new friends, and as you begin a whole new chapter of life together. Considering how many times I’ve moved in my life, it should be no […]

Caramel Yogurt Dip

Everyone wants what they can’t have. That guy who liked me for two years in high school? I took his phone calls, notes, and attention for granted, only becoming interested in him after he finally gave up and asked out another girl. Likewise, I never gave caramel a second thought until 7th grade when the […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

If you told me 10 years ago that someday I’d love to babysit, I most likely would’ve rolled my eyes and thought you were crazy. But spend enough time with kids and you really do begin to notice their childhood sense of innocence and wonder about the world wearing off on you. I spent Thursday […]

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 […]

Chocolate Chip Cherry Granola Bars

I secretly love awkward situations. Maybe not right while they’re happening… But when you look back, the awkward moments are the ones that always make for the best stories. This past Saturday I was meeting a friend for dinner and arrived early at the restaurant. (I’m always early to everything.) By the time my cell […]

Mocha Coconut Chocolate Dipped Macaroons

If you couldn’t tell, I kind of really love coconut. Just kind of. Coconut: the other white meat In my world, coconut could be its own food group; I love it almost as much as I love chocolate. Please note, I did say almost. Let’s not take things too far. Anyway it’s not like I must choose between […]

Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Pops

These pudding pops are like eating a York Peppermint Patty straight from the freezer. True story: It’s been so hot these past few weeks that yesterday I finally decided to bring the popsicle molds back from their post-summer home in the garage. However I probably should have looked at the weather report first… Midday the […]

Breakfast quinoa might just be the perfect solution… Make it even more delicious by adding chocolate chips and letting them slowly melt into the hot breakfast quinoa porridge… Seriously, when do chocolate chips not make a recipe better??? You […]

Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes

Taking chocolate and peanut butter to a whole new level. Anyone who’s spent an extended amount of time in Philadelphia will most likely recognize Kandy Kakes (or Tandy Kakes). Vanilla sponge cake topped with peanut butter and coated in chocolate, these cakes carry something of a cult following in the Philadelphia area. I remember opening […]

Avocado Smoothie

Currently craving this creamy avocado smoothie. Suddenly, I cannot get enough avocado. I’m craving it in avocado smoothies, avocado frozen yogurt, avocado chocolate shakes, and am even just scraping it straight into my mouth. This is really strange… for most of my life I loathed avocado, despite giving my best effort to like the heart-healthy […]
