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 […]

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. […]

I recently came across a recipe for peanut butter fudge – on Pinterest, of course. The recipe claimed that the fudge only contained three ingredients and was vegan, gluten free and grain free. Based on quite a bit of Pinterest experience, I figured the ingredients were either totally obscure, gross, or both. But no! The ingredients were […]

There are two facts about my eating habits that, if you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you already know: I have the worst sweet tooth ever, and I’m the laziest cook ever. Needless to say, my “dinners” when I’m alone involve minimal ingredients and effort. But they always pack a sweet […]

‘Nana Nut Muffins

I tend to go feast or famine with bananas – I’m either angry because I’m craving one so badly and have none left or I’m wincing at the overflowing collection of browning ones in the fridge. Last week was the latter. After the success of the Paleo Pumpkin Muffins I made recently, I had the confidence […]

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

Let me start off by clarifying that I do not follow a paleo diet. I love food too much. Food makes me happy. If that’s wrong, then I don’t want to be right. That being said, if food can be made to taste good while being comprised of all natural, readily available ingredients, then I’m all in. […]
