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 […]

No-Bake Nutella Cookie Dough Balls

Welcome to the very first… Nutella Week! A week where every single new recipe published on this website will revolve around Nutella.

Instant Cereal

Have you ever broken a bone? During my years as a hard-core runner, I tripped and slammed into the concrete on multiple occasions… There’s even a permanent scar on my left hip as a reminder of one such fall. Yet I never suffered a single broken bone in that time; not even so much as […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeye Brownies

Should I hit “publish”? Millions of complete strangers are going to read what I’ve just written… is it really a good idea to get so personal?

Blueberry Mini Muffins

As I write this post, I’m on my way to Rehoboth Beach for the week! So far, I’ve found two ways to entertain myself in the car: 1. Taking ridiculous car selfies. And also snapping pictures of my younger sister who is sleeping. Blackmail for later. (Older sisters are evil.) 2. Eating homemade blueberry mini muffins, […]

How to Cook Millet

Do you know how to cook millet? By now, pretty much everyone has heard about (and is most likely tired of hearing about) quinoa’s superpowers and how to cook quinoa. With all of the hype surrounding quinoa, millet often gets overlooked, which is unfortunate because this ancient seed is highly nutritious (providing copper, magnesium, fiber, […]

Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake Ball

My obsession with World Cup soccer began in 1994. I was seven years old and fell in love with the Italian World Cup team… more specifically, I fell in love with their star player, Roberto Baggio, and decided I was going to marry him someday. (My Italian grandmother was immensely happy to hear this.) For […]

5 Ingredient Avocado Fudge Bites

I have puppy fever. Every time I leave the apartment, I am bombarded with puppies! Big puppies, little puppies, young puppies, old puppies. (All dogs are puppies to me, no matter their age.) And it makes me wonder if I should get a puppy… (Above, Henry in his thundershirt and Batman in his winter coat […]

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 […]

These homemade chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are serious comfort food! Back in high school, I took a summer job one year at a vet’s office and was initially very excited about it.
