Banana Birthday Cake Ice Cream

When I was a kid, my favorite cake was the rainbow chip kind. It was just sprinkles in the boxed cake mix, but I loved it. I know now that it’s all the same, and that you can’t really taste the sprinkles that are baked in the cake (although, full disclosure: I don’t know when [...]

Vanilla Cacao Nib Peanut Butter

Vanilla Cacao Nib Peanut Butter

Last week, my husband opened up the cabinet we use as a pantry, looking for something. Nuts, pasta, crackers. It’s impossible to know. Especially considering I have everything under the sun in that cabinet shoved however it will fit. I guess some people might say I’m a bit disorganized.     So out come several [...]

Summer Vegetable Tart

I hate summer. Yes, I do. I hate heat, bugs, cookouts, and anything else related to summer.  Except for one thing. Produce. You’ll never find a pint of berries, a peach, or basket of cherry tomatoes in a grocery store as good as you’ll find from a local farm. I’ve tried.        While [...]

Cherry Almond Baked Oatmeal

My breakfast usually consists of yogurt or a smoothie. If I feel like cooking, I’ll make oatmeal. If I feel like making a mess, I’ll make baked oatmeal.   I’ve made different variations of baked oatmeal before, usually consisting of blueberries and bananas, but I had some frozen tart cherries in the freezer, so this [...]

I suppose every girl has a funny story or two about her mother, but for every one every other girl has, I probably have ten. Before [...]

3 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

After the holidays, I usually get to the point where I find myself telling someone “I don’t think I could eat one more cookie!” (Of course, if someone handed me a plate of peanut blossoms right now, I am sure I would eat the whole thing in one sitting, but since that’s likely not happening, [...]

Blue Mac and Cheese with Crunchy Sourdough Topping

I love healthy food, but some days a dinner made of vegetables and quinoa just won’t cut it. On those days, I can look through my recipe collection, and even my favorite recipes just don’t sound good. I have those days every now and then, and no matter how much I love a good vegetable [...]

Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan Smoothie

I’ve always loved pecans (well, nuts in general, but pecans are my fave. Any time I’m eating something with pecans, I want as many as I can get. I’m always going to grab the piece of pecan pie with the most nuts (or if I’m making it, you better believe it’s going to be loaded!) [...]
