berry baked oatmeal

Berry Crumble Baked Oatmeal

 A dessert-like berry baked oatmeal is perfect for cold winter days. It can be hard to eat healthy food in the winter sometimes. It’s cold outside, and nothing is better when it’s cold than a cheesy casserole or soup. So I often find myself trying to reset my diet around this time of year. Nothing [...]

Wild Blueberry Pancakes

Wild blueberry pancakes are the perfect way to end a weekend. I have a love-hate relationship with blueberries. Like most fruit, buying them at the grocery store is a guessing game. Sometimes they’re good, but often they’re tiny, tasteless balls of nothing. I wanted to make blueberry pancakes that are fluffy, tender, and jam-packed full [...]

tiramisu overnight oats

Tiramisu Overnight Oats

Tiramisu overnight oats are dessert for breakfast. So good. Italian food is not my favorite cuisine. I like it. I’ll eat it for sure. But tiramisu is definitely one of my favorite desserts. There’s something about the creamy, coffee flavor that gets me every time. And you can be sure that if I see it [...]

strawberry breakfast parfait

Strawberry Almond Butter Oatmeal Breakfast Parfait

A strawberry breakfast parfait for the win! I’m always on a quest to make healthy foods more interesting. As anyone is I suppose. Oatmeal is one of my favorite foods, but it definitely gets boring after awhile. Same with a smoothie. So this is my way to combine them both, and the end is almost [...]

goji berry granola

Vanilla Coconut Goji Berry Granola

Goji berry granola with vanilla and coconut is perfect for breakfast. I’m a fan of granola. Most store-bought granola, however, is too sweet. Or too expensive. Sometimes it tastes fine but is lacking the ingredients that make it special. If you’ve ever had a bag of chocolate chip granola with like four chocolate chips, you [...]

blue cheese scones

Blue Cheese Apricot Pecan Scones

Blue cheese scones anyone? I love scones but typically steer more towards sweet than savory. But what about sweet and savory. That’s what you get here with these blue cheese scones. I came up with this idea after having a blue cheese and apple scone at a local bakery. It was delish, and I was originally [...]

peach and apricot jam recipe

Chardonnay Peach and Apricot Jam

An easy peach and apricot jam recipe? Yes, please! I love jam. At any given time, I probably have 5 jars in my fridge, and an unopened one or two jars in my pantry. My favorite is apricot, hands down. In the summer, I sometimes go overboard with fruit. Especially peaches and apricots. You can’t [...]

key lime pie granola

Key Lime Pie Granola

Key lime pie is one of my favorite desserts, hands down. Something about the creaminess with the tart lime flavor wins me over every single time. A while back, my husband bought me a key lime tree. Against his wishes, of course. Because unlike me, he knew that it would never survive in our house. [...]

banana pancakes

Strawberry and Banana Pancake Bites

I love bite sized food. I also happen to love strawberry banana pancakes. So it’s no surprise that strawberry banana pancake bites are my new favorite thing. Some strawberries added to the mix don’t hurt either. The fruit becomes soft and jammy when heated, so it’s perfect filling for fluffy pancakes. This isn’t a complicated [...]
