Lightened-Up Chocolate Chip Cookies

Editor’s note: I was tempted to title this “Quarantine Cookies” or “COVID Cookies” but I stayed strong. Now my bad puns are in regular-sized print instead of up in proverbial lights. If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning, you’ll probably remember how obsessed I was with baking when I first graduated college. Don’t […]

Chocolate Banana Muffins

I’m the queen of keeping overly-brown bananas in the fridge with the intention of using them in a recipe. More often than not, they end up in the trash. This time, I was determined not to let them go to waste. So, I found a recipe on Chelsea’s Messy Apron for Chocolate Banana Muffins. They’re […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

If you’ve been following me since the beginning of the blog, you know I used to bake almost every day. Not an exaggeration. The obsession was at its peak when I was living at my parents’ house: I had the full run of the kitchen since they were gone living the snowbird life, and I […]

Cinnamon Crunch Banana Muffins

As I touched on in one of my most recent posts, my apartment in CT had a roach problem. I didn’t go into detail about how bad it really was, and a food post probably isn’t the place to…but basically, I didn’t use my kitchen for the last five-or-so months of living there. Needless to […]

Buffalo Boats

I posted these Buffalo Turkey Zucchini Boats to my Instagram story the other day. I was bummed because I was too eager to eat that I didn’t take any appetizing photos. But apparently they looked good to you guys anyway…because a bunch of you messaged me for the recipe! You could cover pretty much anything […]

Kidding… Anyway, the past four Sundays, I’ve spent the day cooking meals for the week ahead. This has helped accomplish a few goals: […]

Healthy Brownies…That Don’t Suck!

Do you guys remember the great pumpkin shortage of 2015? No? Just me? Well, that’s probably because it didn’t turn out to be nearly as bad as predicted. At least not for canned pumpkin. But don’t worry, my mom and I stocked up on cans and cans of it because it’s one of my favorite ingredients to […]
