Giant Chocolate-Chip Cookie Cake

A giant chocolate-chip cookie. Can you think of anything better? Right now, I can’t. But give me a second… Nope. Still cant. Presenting a healthier version of the famous Great American Cookie Cake. This one is whole-grain, gluten-free, and high in fiber. But don’t let those adjectives scare you away; the recipe has the stamp […]

Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte

It’s a healthy pumpkin spice latte! It’s beginning to look like Fall. On Tuesday, we experienced our first cold front of the season. Of course, in Texas that simply means the high is 85 degrees instead of 110. But still, when your body’s gotten used to 110, any cooler temperatures will make you reach for […]

The Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie

I am 25 years old today! Someone suggested I should take the day off from blogging. But that’d be no fun. You know what would be fun? Sharing one of my absolute favorite recipes in the whole wide world What if I told you that in less than ten minutes, you can make this: What […]

Evil Whipped Cream

Don’t wear white after Labor Day. Apparently my naughty berries don’t care one iota about fashion rules: Fresh raspberries, blueberries, and healthy whipped cream. See the photo? Times that by about a hundred to get how much of the cream I ate yesterday. Thankfully, the cream recipe is so healthy that eating an entire bowl […]

Extreme Recipe Makeover

Are you an organized person? By quickly looking at me, and my super-scary workspace(!), no one would ever think I’m an organized person. Whenever inspiration strikes, I make a note on whatever I can find–scrap paper, cookbooks, even cereal boxes… the little notes take over my entire house! So it may *seem* like I’m highly unorganized. […]

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Milkshake

What did you say? I’m supposed to write commentary for this post? I can’t think straight right now, so that might present a problem. All that’s going through my brain is: peanut butter cookie dough. peanut butter cookie dough. peanut butter cookie dough. Wait, was I saying something? I lost my train of thought again. […]

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

I swear, flourless chocolate chip cookies can talk. Yes they can. Do they ever talk to you, too? Every time I pass a chocolate-chip cookie, it calls out to me, informing me that I want to eat it. As if I needed a reminder. Chocolate-chip cookies symbolize everything that is good in the world: love, […]

Single-Serving Blueberry Muffin

Blueberry muffins! Have you ever seen the jumbo muffins they sell at places like Costco and Sam’s Club? Yesterday, out of the blue (pun intended), those muffins just popped into my mind. And suddenly… I wanted one! I had some leftover blueberries from making Homemade Blueberry Ketchup. So I quickly threw them into a single-lady cupcake mix and […]

Low-Calorie Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Perhaps an employee at Whole Foods secretly spiked my most-recent jar of peanut butter. How else can you explain why a chocoholic would crave nothing but peanut butter for the past three days? Yesterday, to feed the ever-growing peanut butter beast inside of me, I created this fast and easy peanut butter ice cream. No […]

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cookies

These. Are. Addictive. Very addictive. So addictive you can’t eat just one. So addictive you can’t eat just two. So addictive they should come with a warning label. Oh so very addictive. Not for sharing. Normally, I am very good about sharing my desserts with any friends who show up at my door. (And due […]

Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes

Yesterday I had ice cream sandwiches for breakfast. Take that, cold cereal. And of course, in following the “healthy dessert” theme of this blog, the above ice cream pancakes are much healthier than they look. So please feel free to eat them for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or, um, all three. Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes […]

Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles!

Hi chocolate-covered espresso beans! Ick, I tried a chocolate-covered espresso bean once. It was not good. Almost broke my tooth! And I hate how coffee beans—especially flavored ones—don’t taste as yummy as they smell. Chocolate-raspberry coffee? Snickerdoodle coffee? They sound good in theory… In reality, I’d much rather have Snickerdoodle Pancakes. Maybe with one of […]

Girl-Scout Cookie Larabars

I could do hot yoga in my backyard. Note: I said could, not would. I tried hot yoga once and hated it. It was just so… hot! I don’t like feeling sticky and sweaty, and therefore hot yoga is not my friend. Also not my friend when it’s hot? The oven! Lately, I’ve pushed the […]

5 Ingredient Rice Crispy Treats

Going back to school? When I was growing up, I’d often find a rice crispy treat—in that famous turquoise wrapper—packed into my school lunchbox. So rice crispy treats remind me of school… in a good way! No-bake, and they can be gluten-free! Rice Crispy Treats (Or you can make squares) 3 cups rice crispies (I used […]

Vegan Cool Whip

Oh my goodness goodness gosh. (Do I sound like a pre-teen at a Justin Bieber concert?) This light and creamy coconut whipped topping is totally dairy free, with just one main ingredient… but it has the exact same texture as real homemade whipped cream! Vegan Cool Whip (or coconut whipped cream) 1 can full-fat coconut milk (or coconut […]
