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 […]

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. […]

Chocolate Bar Pie

I’m thinking of starting a new blog. The blog will be called: I love Chocolate Pies. It’ll focus solely on variations of my Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie. I’m pretty sure that chocolate pie is my favorite recipe on the entire blog. There’s just one problem: I love the pie so much that I keep making more […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
