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 […]

Simple Garlic Shrimp

I’ve loved shrimp since I was a little kid. I actually had the most ridiculously expensive taste. My favorite meal? An appetizer of shrimp cocktail and steamed clams followed by an entrée of either lazy man’s lobster or prime rib, medium rare. You would think I had been raised in a palace with a full […]

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

I’ve been trying to stay on track in terms of diet and exercise, but my sweet tooth never lets up. You know those people that say if you give up sweets for 21 days you never crave them again? I beg to differ. Luckily, when you put a vegetable inside a cookie, it becomes healthy. […]

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 […]

Don’t Cauli Me Boring

As my family will tell you (particularly my Dad), I am all about the latest healthy food trends. Even when they appeal to no-one else. I’ve done black bean brownies, chickpea cookie dough, zucchini cookies, every kale smoothie in the book…you name it, I’ve probably tried it. The latest veggie trend is significantly less scary: cauliflower […]

Haley’s Healthy Hash

I haven’t exactly done much cooking in my new apartment. Unless you count reheating. I just find that my schedule can be unpredictable, so I don’t really plan meals in advance. By the time I get home from work and veg out for a bit, I’m not into the idea of preparing a ‘real’ meal. […]
