Gingerbread Pancakes

My sister and nieces came over Sunday and we had a cookie decorating party that left us frazzled, happy, and sprinkles everywhere. I made these gingerbread pancakes for breakfast to nourish all of our bellies in preparation for that mad cookie decorating and they were demolished in a matter of minutes. I’ll have to say, […]

Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Take your favorite pumpkin pie filling and swirl it between the best tasting cinnamon rolls on the planet and you have these knock-your-socks-off crazy good Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls. I mean, I don’t think it gets better than this. The dough comes together easily once it has risen. The key is to make sure it […]

Crunchy Coconut Almond Granola

  Is it just me, or is this year zipping by fast? I’m sure I’ve said it before, but seriously. 2014, slow down, please!! (!!!). I made a batch of this granola for a quick breakfast/snack for the week. I love it mixed with yogurt and fresh berries, or just by itself. I liken it […]

Mango-Pineapple Yogurt Sauce

A couple of Sundays ago, my family had a get together for Easter. The spread of food was amazing, and I ate myself sick, with no regrets. My Aunt Wendy made this incredible mango sauce that was displayed in the cavity of a pineapple, sprinkled with fresh raspberries. I’m telling you, I couldn’t get enough […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Cocoroons

  My BFF is in town this week while Mark is off on a business trip. We’ve done a lot so far.  Finished a 5k, went to my niece’s baptism, had laughing-fits from stories from our college days, finished more bottles of wine than I would like to admit, baked, cooked, and made time to […]

Breakfast Cookies

We have about a week until my due date and I’ve been nesting like you wouldn’t believe. I wish this urge to clean and purge old belongings came naturally, and on a regular basis. I made these breakfast cookies to take with us to the hospital. I thought they would be nice to have on […]

Green Smoothie (that doesn’t taste “Green”)

  I don’t own a juicer, so with that said, here’s my contribution to eating cleaner in 2014, with a nice green smoothie. I’ve always preferred smoothies over juice, anyway. This smoothie is packed with fresh spinach, bananas and a sprinkling of fresh cranberries to round it out. I used coconut milk in here, but […]

Perfectly Crispy Bacon

I’ve been on the hunt for the best way to make crispy bacon. I love bacon, but I really, really hate making it. It takes up too much time standing by the stove getting sprinkled by bacon grease, and then I’m left with a messy pan to clean. Insert my new favorite way of making […]

Pumpkin Spice Crepes

I first made these in the beginning of October while we had family in town from the Bay Area. They were such a hit that I have been itching to make them again, before pumpkin-eating season is over. We all know that after Thanksgiving, sadly, it’s not considered pumpkin season anymore. Just like after Christmas, […]

Banana Bread

  I made this bread when I had a bundle of almost-black bananas sitting on my kitchen counter. Don’t you hate it when bananas turn too quickly? Yeah, so do I! Thankfully this bread was birthed from an almost-garbage-tragedy and turned out to be pretty darn good, to boot. I changed up some traditional ingredients […]
