Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding

First, an apology. A few weeks ago, I changed the website format to show only previews of the recipes on the homepage.  While this did increase my blog traffic, it also upset some readers who resented having to go through an extra step to see the recipes. I’m going back to showing full recipes on the […]

Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge

Healthy peanut butter fudge!!! With NONE of the butter, heavy cream, or high fructose corn syrup you’d normally find in a peanut butter fudge recipe! Back in June, when I went on my beach vacation, there was a little candy shop along the boardwalk selling homemade fudge in enticing flavors such as Chocolate Pecan, Sea […]

Baked Oatmeal Recipe – Family Size

After publishing the Single Serving Baked Oatmeal recipe almost three years ago, I’ve received many inquiries about a possible family-friendly version that yields more than one serving. Since simply multiplying every ingredient in a recipe for a larger serving doesn’t always work, I had to play around with this one for a while. But I […]

Nutella Chocolate Chip Blondies

Oh yes, Nutella blondies… People are often surprised when they find out what type of music I like. Perhaps this is due to my innocent demeanor or the fact that I am always wearing pink. Or that I have the stereotypically “girly” job of baking for a living. But the truth is you’d be much […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Love Bars

No added sugar in these wholesome granola bars ♥ They’re filled with the goodness of ingredients such as hearty oatmeal and potassium-rich banana. And each bar packs a surprisingly high amount of protein.   The inspiration for the recipe is my 3 Minute Protein Granola Bars. I wanted to come up with a replacement for […]

Chocolate Banana Bread in a Bowl

New favorite breakfast!! If you like banana bread, there’s a good chance you’ll fall completely in love with this rich chocolatey breakfast bowl. The entire recipe takes less than 5 minutes to make, and you might already have all of the ingredients!

Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal

This is like eating strawberry shortcake for breakfast!! You can eat it plain or topped with ice cream or my Low Calorie Homemade Whipped Cream. Also, it will make your house smell amazing while it’s baking! I’m not sure how it’s been over two years since I last posted a baked oatmeal for one recipe. […]

Rum Raisin Ice Cream

Homemade Rum Raisin Ice Cream! But why is the rum gone? (Quick! Anyone know the movie character who says this quote?) So, apparently yesterday was National Rum Day and today is National Soft Serve Ice Cream Day.  I think they really do have a national day for everything under the sun. For example? September 18th […]

Nutella Brownie Batter Dip

Continuing on with our Nutella Recipe Week. The following recipe is completely amazing! It tastes pretty much like you’ve just stirred a heaping spoonful of Nutella into a batch of gooey and unbaked brownies. Who could resist something like that? Except maybe people who don’t like brownie batter… Is there even such a thing as a person […]

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. (I’m using the term Nutella as a proprietary eponym; you can make any of this week’s recipes with Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, Rawmio, or your favorite chocolate spread. I like to use my […]

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 Covered Strawberry Fudge Bars

I love easy recipes. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the blog. There’s an entire page devoted to this type of recipe: Over 100 healthy dessert recipes that can be made in 5 minutes or less. So these chocolate strawberry bars are perfect for me: Just a few ingredients, and the […]

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, […]
