Caramel Apple Milkshake

Like a sticky-sweet caramel apple. In liquid form. Caramel Apples This recipe reminds me of those gorgeous caramel apples on display at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Until I got my braces, I looked forward to caramel apples every autumn. (After the braces went on, I was probably more upset about not being allowed caramel […]

Pumpkin Bread in a Bowl

This is your new favorite breakfast. Or rather, my new favorite breakfast. This delicious breakfast recipe is super–filling (and keeps you full for a long time), and it’s extremely easy and quick to prepare. I don’t usually eat the same thing for breakfast more than two days in a row, because there are way too […]

(No Sugar!) Cookie Dough Dip

*Super-excited face* On Friday night, my previous post went viral, with over 2 millions views. It is crazy. Thank you so much to everyone who’s been sharing it! With so many more people finding that post, I spent yesterday afternoon doing something I’d meant to do for a long time: creating a sugar-free version of the […]

Four-Minute Coconut Macaroons

If you run to your kitchens right now, you can assemble these delicious cookies in 4 minutes flat! On your mark… Get set… Go! They’re probably one of the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. Soft, chewy, amazingness. Easiest-Ever Coconut Macaroons (Can be gluten-free!) These were inspired by this little cookie. 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut […]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Leaves paint the ground. Vivid orange, red, and yellow swirl through the sky, stirred by a cool Fall breeze. Monet’s paintbrush. (Hope you liked my little poem!) Fall is by far my favorite time of year. Everything about it just seems so cozy: oversized sweaters, steamy mugs of hot cider, scarecrows and falling leaves. It’s the […]

Five Minute Chocolate Oatmeal

Chocolate oatmeal?! Oh my goodness, yes! In just 5 minutes, you can make this decadent-yet-good-for-you chocolate oatmeal for one. It’s like dessert for breakfast! I don’t let chance dictate whether my day gets off to a good start. I’d rather make sure it’ll be a good day… by consuming chocolate first thing. Sometimes, it’s in the […]

Healthy Hostess Cupcakes

Healthy Hostess Cupcakes! Hostess cupcakes iced with Hot Chocolate Butter. Along with yesterday’s Healthy Cookie Dough Dip, I brought these cupcakes to Sunday’s pirate party. For a while now, I’d been looking for an excuse to try making a healthier version of the popular creme-filled cupcakes. So when I discovered I could stretch the “yo ho/ […]

Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats

Crayons! I used to love crayons. A lot. I’d entertain myself for hours with a pad of paper and box of Crayolas. My favorite part was probably the built-in pencil sharpener; but I liked the funny color names too. Did you know there was once a color called “Dirty Sneakers”? Or “Dingy Dungeon”? Sometime around […]

Super-Thick Strawberry Milkshake

I don’t know what season it is. First it’s cold, and my body says: Girl, please give me some Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal. Then the very next day is bright and sunny; over 100 degrees again. Yesterday was one of those hot days, which meant the canned pumpkin in my fridge didn’t receive any love. […]

Pumpkin Nut Butter

Once upon a time… Dashing Mr. Skippy met beautiful Ms. Libbys. Nine months later, they welcomed the following into the world: If you want more info as to how exactly such a baby came to be, please go ask your parents. Or you can read all about it in a seriously disturbing book. About the […]

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 […]

Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

Cinnamon roll baked oatmeal. Frosted with my favorite Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting. I blame Ikea. It is impossible to walk out of that store not craving cinnamon rolls. The aroma of their freshly-baked rolls permeates the entire warehouse. I swear, it’s like they’ve sprayed cinnamon-scented perfume throughout the store. When I was little, I thought Ikea was […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]
