Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cake

Once upon a time when I was five, I decided to make breakfast for my mother. I woke up really early, tiptoed into the kitchen, and perused the available supplies. Out came the pancake mix, the eggs, the milk… everything I’d seen my mother use to make pancakes. I poured the entire box of mix […]

Chocolate Chai Tea Oatmeal

I made the mistake of walking outside yesterday. And then immediately turned right back around. No. Just… no. I love how they feel the need to write “very cold” under the temperature. As if seeing –12 didn’t already make that abundantly clear. There’s something about abysmally-cold weather that screams comfort food. And this healthy breakfast […]

Oatmeal Muffins

I’ll admit I don’t always eat a “perfect” healthy diet. Especially in December, filled with so many holiday parties and family gatherings, it’s not uncommon for a few too many drinks and way too many Christmas cookies to sneak their way into my life. Not to mention the homemade chocolate fudge, the bourbon pecan pie, […]

Mexican Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

If you’re looking for a tried-and-true holiday cookie recipe that gets rave reviews and  yields a batch large enough to take to a party… Do not make these. The raw cookie batter is so addictive that, if you’re anything like me, you’ll find it completely impossible to stop eating the cookie dough by the spoonful. […]

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Homemade butternut squash soup – comforting deliciousness in a bowl!   The summer before my junior year of high school (it seems so long ago), I took a road trip to visit colleges along the East Coast of the United States. One of the stops was Cornell University, located in the small town of Ithaca, […]

Pumpkin Pancakes

I love getting recipe requests. My list of things to make is now nine pages long… not exaggerating. Included on the list are ideas such as: Nutella Cheesecake Squares, Dark Chocolate Banana Bread, Oatmeal Crème Pies, Coconut Layer Cake, and Cookie Dough Waffles. Without a doubt, the most-requested recipe over the years has been for […]

Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Marshmallow Cream Frosting

While pumpkin might reign king in the world of internet food blogs, it just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the yams or sweet potatoes. Consider this recipe Thanksgiving in a cupcake. Although… I’m pretty sure the pilgrims didn’t have marshmallow frosting back in the day. 😕 Minor details. If you wish to take it one step further […]

Healthy Pumpkin Pie

Healthy pumpkin pie!! When you move around a lot as a child, family becomes extremely important. You learn to rely on each other whilst navigating a new city or country, making new friends, and as you begin a whole new chapter of life together. Considering how many times I’ve moved in my life, it should be no […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

If you told me 10 years ago that someday I’d love to babysit, I most likely would’ve rolled my eyes and thought you were crazy. But spend enough time with kids and you really do begin to notice their childhood sense of innocence and wonder about the world wearing off on you. I spent Thursday […]

Chocolate Chip Cherry Granola Bars

I secretly love awkward situations. Maybe not right while they’re happening… But when you look back, the awkward moments are the ones that always make for the best stories. This past Saturday I was meeting a friend for dinner and arrived early at the restaurant. (I’m always early to everything.) By the time my cell […]

Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Pops

These pudding pops are like eating a York Peppermint Patty straight from the freezer. True story: It’s been so hot these past few weeks that yesterday I finally decided to bring the popsicle molds back from their post-summer home in the garage. However I probably should have looked at the weather report first… Midday the […]

Peanut Butter Biscuits

Has the weather gotten cold yet where you are? These soft and fluffy peanut butter biscuits are the perfect comfort food for any cold October morning. Dip them in hot maple syrup, spread on some melted coconut butter, or sandwich the biscuits with raspberry jelly and even more peanut butter… They also make a terrific portable snack and are great […]

Breakfast Quinoa

Stuck in a breakfast rut? Bored of eating the same bowl of oatmeal every single day? Breakfast quinoa might just be the perfect solution… Make it even more delicious by adding chocolate chips and letting them slowly melt into the hot breakfast quinoa porridge… Seriously, when do chocolate chips not make a recipe better??? You […]

Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes

Taking chocolate and peanut butter to a whole new level. Anyone who’s spent an extended amount of time in Philadelphia will most likely recognize Kandy Kakes (or Tandy Kakes). Vanilla sponge cake topped with peanut butter and coated in chocolate, these cakes carry something of a cult following in the Philadelphia area. I remember opening […]

Avocado Smoothie

Currently craving this creamy avocado smoothie. Suddenly, I cannot get enough avocado. I’m craving it in avocado smoothies, avocado frozen yogurt, avocado chocolate shakes, and am even just scraping it straight into my mouth. This is really strange… for most of my life I loathed avocado, despite giving my best effort to like the heart-healthy […]
