Lemon Cloud Cheesecake

Sometimes Tuesdays are pretty awesome. This light lemon cheesecake can be: low-calorie / low-fat / high-protein / flourless / vegan / and gluten-free! The cheesecake was adapted from the popular Cappuccino Cloud Cheesecake – the original recipe inspired by an ex-boyfriend who claimed to hate anything healthy. Accepting the challenge, I had created the recipe and served […]

Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins

A homemade blueberry muffin. Stuffed with sweet blueberry cream cheese filling. It’s like blueberry cheesecake in the form of a breakfast food!!! Inspired by the recently posted Strawberry Cheesecake Dip, I spent yesterday afternoon creating 100% edible blueberry watercolor masterpieces. Sometimes I have way too much fun in my studio kitchen. How fantastic would these be for […]

Mounds Bar Chocolate Coconut Pudding Cups

For more than half of my fourth grade existence, I went through a phase where I was completely obsessed with Jello pudding cups. Every day, I’d find a different flavor packed into my lunchbox—anything from chocolate, to butterscotch, to cheesecake, to classic vanilla. I loved them all. Today’s recipe reminds me of those Jello pudding […]

Hearty Vegetable Miso Soup Recipe

Of all the places I’ve been, Japan is most definitely among my favorites. I was lucky enough to spend five years of my childhood in the country, meaning its culture has greatly impacted the way I learn, communicate, and view the world even to this day. Modern yet traditional, fast-paced yet serene, Japan is a […]

Candy Cane Pudding Pie

We elves try to stick to the four main food groups. Candy. Candy canes. Candy corns… And syrup! Representing three of Buddy the Elf’s four main food groups hopefully means this pudding pie would earn Will Ferrell’s stamp of approval. You did it! Congratulations! World’s best cup of coffee pudding pie! Great job, everybody! It’s […]

Chocolate Greek Yogurt Pie

This chocolate Greek yogurt pie is rich and creamy, with a custard-like texture. The yogurt makes it almost taste like you’re eating a chocolate cheesecake, but at the same time you are getting protein, calcium, vitamins, and a healthy dose of probiotics… you could even eat it for breakfast. Hey, chocolate for breakfast is healthy. Dr. Oz […]

Banana Pudding

Homemade banana pudding… Did you know that I once competed in a Banana Pudding Eating Contest? Yes, really… Can’t you picture it? It was at Six Flags, and I was with a group of friends. Hungry teenagers, lured by the thought of free banana pudding and Nilla wafers, we all decided to enter. About 3 […]

Healthy Oreo Milkshake

When I was playing soccer back in high school, I’d sometimes wake up with really bad leg cramps during the night, most likely thanks to a rigorous training schedule that included two-hour practices each day after class and a bike ride home because I didn’t have a car. Upon asking around, I was surprised to […]

Cappuccino Cloud Cheesecake

What do you make for the birthday of a guy who has ZERO interest in healthy eating and whose favorite vegetable is an onion ring?   Enter the creamiest cheesecake you’ve ever tasted. It’s almost like a mousse pie, with an unbelievable cloud-like texture. And you can always stock up on onion rings just in […]

Copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Today I give you… Fudgey chocolate brownies. Covered in fudgey chocolate frosting… If you couldn’t tell, the theme of today’s post is chocolate fudge.    When I think of these brownies, I think of author Judy Blume, who wrote an entire series of books about Fudge: Double Fudge, Super Fudge, and Fudge-a-Mania. I’ll never forget […]
