4 Egg-Filled Easter Brunch Recipes

Easter doesn’t make a lot of sense when you think about it. There’s a bunny but bunnies don’t lay eggs, so why are you searching for them? And where does the candy come in? Assuming you’re not having plastic eggs filled with dollar bills and chocolate candies, you might want to have something a little…

Peanut Butter Banana Refuel Smoothie

Marathon Monday is just a week away. Growing up in Massachusetts, it was always a big deal. I was shocked to find out it wasn’t actually a national holiday and most people work on Marathon Monday. This year Stonyfield Greek is the official yogurt of the 2014 Boston Marathon. They asked their Clean Plate Club members…

Packed Lunch: Rice & Bean Bowl

I’m one of those people at the office who brings in lunch every day. The same lunch every single day. The Huffington Post wrote an article about us. Sure packing a lunch every day can get tiresome, but it’s cheaper and healthier to do it yourself. It’s hard to argue with that. If you’re on…

Peanut Butter Buttercream

These are not the best cupcakes I had for my birthday. In fact, the cake part didn’t come out all that well since I made them on the fly without measuring anything(only to be surprised Saturday night with a batch of homemade banana cupcakes with Nutella frosting). But they were entirely edible if only because…

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…

Savory Garlic Green Beans

A lot of the time I’m asked if this is purely a dessert blog. It’s not, but I can see where the confusion comes from between brownies and bark and cookies. Desserts are just easier to photograph. You don’t have to worry about them cooling too much. You can even wait a whole day before…

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,…

3 Irish Cream Dessert Recipes

St. Patricks Day has never been a favorite holiday. Perhaps because my birthday’s right around the corner, or Easter which is centered around chocolate eggs filled with candy(I mean, what’s not to love?). Potatoes, beer, and colcannon just don’t do it for me. But there’s one Irish food I can get down with. Irish cream…

Black & White Chex Mix

Did you know today’s national cereal day? I probably wouldn’t have if the people at Chex cereal didn’t tell me and invite me to celebrate. I really need a calendar with these fun food holidays like national cereal day, national peanut butter day, and—of course—national margarita day(which was thoroughly celebrated). I even forgot the Oscars…

Buffalo Cream Cheese Chex Dip + Giveaway

I love being challenged to make recipes with a few ingredients(a la Chopped). I think it’s easier than starting with a blank canvas. Chex & General Mills challenged me to make something with Chex cereal and Frank’s hot sauce—an odd combination for sure. But immediately I had an idea and I’m happy it turned out…
