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…

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…

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…

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…

4 Easy Nutella Recipes

I have two half-eaten jars of Nutella in my kitchen. I think I have a problem. (I need more Nutella.) There’s a store near me that sells imported European jars for less than $4($3 each if you buy 3). At that price it’s hard not to turn into an addict. Not that Nutella on oatmeal…

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…
