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. […]

‘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. […]

Skinny Pumpkin Bread

Earlier this fall, my mom warned me to stock up on canned pumpkin because of an expected shortage this year. Knowing how many cans of it I went through last year, I rushed over to the grocery store and bought eight cans. Several weeks later, I had yet to open one. As weird as it sounds, I was […]

Spilling the Beans

I’ve been slacking so hard on the baking front the past few months. I think this had to do with three things: Winter finally ending and no longer being cooped up in the house. I had been baking constantly for months, so I think I burnt myself out. My parents came home from Florida… so why […]

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

Yes, you read that right. I tried coming up with an annoying avocado pun to title this post, but I decided that putting chocolate and avocado in the same sentence was attention-grabbing enough.  I love avocados, but they sure don’t make it easy. You wait and wait for them to ripen while you salivate whenever you see them […]

Donut Worry, They’re Healthy!

Happy National Donut Day! As much as I hate to admit this, the first thing I do when I wake up is check social media. First Instagram, then Twitter, and finally, as my attention span wanes, a quick Facebook scan. I guess it’s our generation’s version of reading the paper. Before I knew it, I […]

Guilt-Free Goodies

Moving back home to the suburbs of Massachusetts has given me quite a bit of free time. In less than seven months I’ve gone from a full-time college student and sorority sister to a part-time worker with zero social life. Sure, you’re probably thinking I could spend that time searching for a full-time job…but that’s a discussion […]
