Low-Fat Chocolate Coconut Loaves

I hate the word low-fat, because instantly it conjures up thoughts of dried pastries and a total lack of flavor. That’s nothing anything like these loaves are, soft and bursting with a sweet flavor right out of the oven. Instead of butter or oil, these are made with two favorite tricks: Greek yogurt and evaporated…

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

I can’t believe I haven’t made something this simple yet. Brownies + Reese’s cups. What more do you need? When it comes to brownie recipes, I have a few favorites that I stick by. On occasion I’ll try a mix, but homemade usually comes out better. Whether you’re making your own or using a mix,…

Spinach Mushroom Frittata

If you read this blog often, you might not think I eat anything other than dessert. Hopefully this shows otherwise. Of course I eat savory food every day, several meals a day. But I hardly ever blog about it because I’m someone who’s content with having the same meal for lunch every day of the…

Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s a good think I never made a resolution to eat less sugar because if I did I’d be doing horribly at it. I always like to have something sweet after dinner, whether it’s part of a chocolate bar or just a handful of chocolate chips. That’s probably why I buy a bag and end…

Gluten-Free Nutella Cookies

Caught the day before Valentine’s Day with out a dessert? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. These are some of the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. At first I was sure they wouldn’t work and would come out flat as a pancake but I’m glad they didn’t. And they tasted great, too! These cookies are…

My Favorite Gluten-Free Cookie Recipe

The toughest thing about being gluten-free is not knowing where to start out. You go from baking and cooking with “flour” to suddenly having to choose between 30 different flours and starches that you’ve never heard of before and have no idea what to do with. Most of the time you don’t even know where…

Bailey’s Frosted Brownies

Some weekends I don’t want to cook a thing. I want to go out to eat for every meal, forget I have a blog, and never pick my camera up. Maybe it’s guilt, or maybe it’s sensibility. Maybe it’s something in between. I’ll inevitably find something to make, for myself or a friend, and at…

12 Months Of Recipes: 2013

“Oh God, not another list!” is admittedly what I think whenever someone posts one of these year-end roundups. Bear with me if you feel the same. Last year I had gone through all my posts from 2012 and picked my favorites from each month. I liked the idea a lot and wanted to do it…

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Everyone says it’s better to give than to receive. And I think that’s true; but getting gifts feels pretty awesome, too, right? I saw a couple coworkers earlier this month enjoying Peanut Butter & Co peanut butter, so I tweeted them since they’re a company I love and have blogged for in the past. Not…
