Chocolate Espresso Granita with Lightly Whipped Cream

Is chocolate granita better than ice cream?  If you’ve ever made homemade ice cream, you know it’s a hassle. It’s delicious, yes. Better than store bought, yes. A fun project? The first time, sure. But you need an ice cream maker. You need to prepare in advance, and then you need room in your freezer. [...]

blood orange chocolate buttermilk scones

Blood Orange Chocolate Buttermilk Scones

Years ago, I worked in a bakery that made the best chocolate buttermilk scones. They were tender and crunchy and craggy. The buttermilk gave them a tangy flavor that in my mind is better than heavy cream. And chocolate? Yes, please. In addition to chocolate, I’m a big fan of citrus flavors, so orange chocolate [...]

candy bar smoothie

Candy Bar Smoothie

Candy bar smoothie? Is that a thing? Well, yes. And also no. I did not actually put real candy bars in a smoothie. Of course that would be delicious. But it would also probably be more like a milkshake. Which I’m not against. Just not for breakfast. Well, I could definitely be talked into a [...]

Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I’m not the biggest cauliflower fan, but I recently got a head in my Imperfect Foods box. I don’t hate it, but it’s not something I’ll go out of my way for. Unless it’s coated in hot sauce, like this recipe for baked buffalo cauliflower bites. Truth is, I’ve never had anything coated in hot [...]

Homemade Hot Honey

Hot honey is not a new thing at this point; it’s on pizza’s everywhere these days, and you can even buy it at most local grocery stores. But how about homemade hot honey? If you’ve never had it, it’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. It’s a great condiment to have on hand if [...]

Carrot Noodle Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing

Carrot noodle salad doesn’t sound great, I know. But hear me out. In the last few months, I’ve relied on grocery delivery more than I ever thought I would. Grocery shopping has always been fun for me — I like picking out produce, browsing the aisles to see what kind of new nut butter I [...]

Crispy Curried Chickpeas

Curried chickpeas sound like something you’ve had before. But not this way. Eating healthy can be a drag sometimes, but it helps if you have a few super healthy foods that you love. Especially if those foods are easy to turn into something that seems unhealthy. These chickpeas are not the boring ones you see [...]

Pizza Salad with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

In an effort to eat better, one of things I’ve been trying to do is eat a salad whenever I eat pizza. Easier said than done, since most pizza shops have terrible salad. So that means I either have to make my own — c’mon — or find a place that has good salad. It’s a struggle [...]

Salted Tahini Date Caramel Bites

Tahini date caramel bites. What?! I’m usually not a fan of healthy sweets — I’d rather have a small amount of real sugar, butter, and cream. I stay away from low-fat and low-sugar foods because they don’t taste as good as the real stuff. Luckily, these tahini date caramel bites taste like real stuff. Even [...]
